Product Overview

A versatile mic suitable for critical recording, broadcast, and sound reinforcement.

  • Specially engineered to meet the most critical acoustic requirements of professional recording, broadcast and sound reinforcement
    Hypercardioid polar pattern reduces pickup of sounds from the sides and rear, improving isolation of desired sound source
    Direct-coupled, balanced output results in a clean signal even under high-output conditions
    Transformerless circuitry virtually eliminates low-frequency distortion and provides superior correlation of high-speed transients
    Switchable 80 Hz hi-pass filter and 10 dB pad
    Rugged turned-brass microphone housing for enduring dependability
    State-of-the-art design and manufacturing techniques ensure compliance with A-T's stringent consistency and reliability standards
    RoHS-compliant—free from all substances specified in the EU directive on the reduction of hazardous substances (RoHS)
Product Details

Audio-Technica AT4053B Hypercardioid Condenser Microphone

The Audio-Technica AT4053B is a hypercardioid condenser microphone that you can use with confidence in a wide variety of professional miking applications. Featuring direct-coupled balanced outputs for clean signals in high-output conditions, the AT4053B mic is totally free of the distortion associated with conventional transformer-coupled outputs. And its fast response to transients contributes to the open, transparent reproduction of even the most difficult-to-capture instruments.

The microphone is fully RoHS-compliant—free from all substances specified in the EU directive on the reduction of hazardous substances (RoHS). The Audio-Technica AT4053B consists of two modular subassemblies: an AT4900b-48 body and an AT4053b-EL hypercardioid head capsule.

The excellent rear rejection of the AT5053B's hypercardioid pattern makes it great for live sound instrument recording, where additional rear-rejection is required.
