Audio-Technica’s AT4050. For performance that legends are made of.

Transparent uppers/mids balanced by rich low-end qualities combine with advanced acoustic engineering for extensive performance capabilities and highest quality

Dual-diaphragm capsule design maintains precise polar pattern definition across the full frequency range of the microphone

The 2-micron-thick, vapor-deposited gold diaphragms undergo a five-step aging process so that the optimum characteristics achieved remain constant over years of use

Three switchable polar patterns: omni, cardioid, figure-of-eight

Transformerless circuitry virtually eliminates low-frequency distortion and provides superior correlation of high-speed transients

State-of-the-art surface-mount electronics ensure compliance with A-T's stringent consistency and reliability standards

Switchable 80 Hz hi-pass filter and 10 dB pad

Custom shock mount provides superior isolation
