Heavyweight cable version
The Premium Slimline Audio Technica microphone set uses a matched set of Audio Technica AT943 microphones. There are two cable options - A premium ultra-flexible, light-weight shielded cable (best for stealthy situations) and a premium standard-weight double shielded cable (best when the mics will be stand mounted or subjected to rough use). Optional removable lavaliere (lapel) clips are available in 2 styles - standard removable lapel clips and Audio Technica mini rotating clips.
The standard configuration comes with the two microphone cables terminated together into a premium stereo gold plated 1/8 inch (3.5mm) mini plug. The high SPL versions (with XLR phantom plugs or with the AT8531 power modules) come with each mic on a separate cable and connector. Custom cable lengths and configurations are available - call for details. Windscreens are included and premium locking windscreens are also available (see option box above).
These are our finest miniature microphones and compare well with the well-known DPA 4060 and 4061 miniature microphones. They also have the advantage of available interchangable capsules, which most other miniature mics don't have.
General information about our Binaural and Cardioid microphones is available here.
There are several ways to power these microphones. Each of these options provides the same sound quality, the only difference is the maximum sound pressure level (SPL) the mics can handle.
1-The microphones can be powered with normal plug-in-power, available on many portable recorders and camcorders. With this type of power, the mics will handle reasonable sound levels. If you will be using the mics in high SPL (sound pressure level) situations, the microphones require additional power, beyond the normal "plug in power". You will need to use one of the powering schemes described below:
2-For strong sound levels, consistent with moderately loud amplified concerts, you can add a battery module for increased high SPL performance and dynamic range. You can select the battery module shown above in the option box, or choose one of the many other types that are available on this page if you prefer.
3-For strong sound levels, consistent with loud amplified concerts when your recorder/mixer, etc. supplies phantom power, you can add the high SPL modified XLR connectors. Each mic has it's own XLR connector and cable and microphones ordered this way will not work with plug in power or a standard battery module as shown above.
