  1. What, you mean useful stuff, not a cloudy, dark teaser with LEDs flashing in the mist, and a tagline about “everything changes … December 2017”. Knock me down with a feather! Props to AudioTechnica.

  2. Way to go AT!

    Cool video. I love AT mics… great sounding, professional, and perform above their price point. I own quite a few, and they get used more often than many other, more expensive mics.

    I love it when a brand is direct, humble, and markets their products as tools and not hyped up fetish items.

  3. Wow. Real knowledge! This is priceless.
    I know people going to pay a lot of money to learn this stuff on “private” audio schools 😉
    Thanks Audio – Technika.
