Audio-Technica has released the AT4080 and AT4081 Bidirectional active ribbon microphones.

Neodymium magnets provide high output levels, and the mics’ dual ribbon construction offers sensitivity and SPL handling capability. The bidirectional polar pattern makes them sensitive to sounds originating in front and back of the mic. Both feature extended frequency response for natural audio reproduction, and the AT4080 utilizes an acoustic baffle system and an extra-large output transformer, providing extended low-frequency response and dynamic range.

The AT4080 and AT4081 require 48V phantom power for their active electronics, which bring their output to near condenser microphone level. This high output and stable impedance make the microphones easy to integrate with microphone preamplifiers.

The MicroLinear ribbon imprint minimizes lateral flexing and grants freedom from ribbon distortion. The output of each microphone is a 3-pin XLRM-type connector. Output is low impedance (Lo-Z) balanced.

The AT4080 and AT4081 will have respective U.S. MSRP’s of $1,245 and $895.

Audio-Technica will be at the Government Video Expo, Dec. 1-3 in Washington at Booth No. 652.
