The Audio-Technica AT8004 Handheld Microphone is a rugged omnidirectional microphone designed for ENG style interviews, speech capturing, etc. The omnidirectional polar pattern is ideal for capturing surrounding ambiance or providing a “forgiving” pick-up area for talkers who tend to move and change positions. The transparent audio reproduction results in natural vocal reproduction and the internally shock-mounted element minimizes handling noise. The AT8004 is an ideal solution for reporters, podium mounting and much more.
