Lab Overview


  • multi-pattern condenser mic suitable for studio and live performance
  • advanced acoustic engineering for transparent highs/mids + rich low end balance
  • dual-diaphragm capsule design maintains precise polar pattern definition across the full frequency range
  • three switchable polar patterns: omni, cardioid, figure-of-eight
  • transformerless circuitry virtually eliminates low-frequency distortion
  • switchable 80 Hz high-pass filter + 10 dB pad
  • includes custom shock mount for superior isolation

"With three switchable polar patterns, the large-diaphragm Audio-Technica AT4050 exhibits a remarkable combination of qualities: high-SPL capability with transparent and airy uppers/mids complemented by rich low-end qualities. Its dual large diaphragms are gold-vaporized and aged for consistent, outstanding performance. A precision-machined, nickel-plated brass acoustic element baffle provides rock-solid element stability and exceptional sensitivity. " - Audio-Technica
