Product Highlights
  • Ideal for ENG
  • 9.43" Long Handle
  • Internal Shock Mount

The Audio-Technica AT8004L 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. Its 9.43" (239.5mm) long handle provides added reach for interviews and room for station ID flags. The AT8004L is an ideal solution for reporters, podium mounting and much more.

    It is a perfect microphone for video producers, filmmakers and video journalists. It is lightweight, practical and great for anyone who works alone or is a foreign correspondent since it facilitates the production of interviews without sacrificing frame your shots.

    The sound quality is worthy of an audio-technica

      Comments about Audio-Technica AT8004L Handheld Omnidirectional Dynamic Microphone (Long Handle):

      I had been using a Shure SM58, but with a mic flag, the handle was not long enough. The handle on this is perfect for ENG-type interviews, with a mic flag (and a Sennheiser wireless module attached). I looked at Beyerdynamic, Sennheiser, Electrovoice ENG mics - and a few others. I've always had good experience with Audio Technica gear - this keeps that steak going.

                Good mic for the price. I used this and the Sennheiser MD-42. I can definitely hear the difference in quality between the AT and the Sennheiser (with the Sennheiser being substantially better). At more than half the price though, this mic will produce great audio for interviews and ENG style shooting on a budget.

                    After own it for about 1 year now.I still feel this is the one of the best purchase.It just add so much value to your video production.I can use XLR to 3.5mm cable feed the sounds directly to DSLR. Since the mouth of the person talking is very close to the mic. That means noise to signal is pretty good. We can still get very high quality sounds directly from DSLR. Very useful mic for DSLR Eng type video.it only cost [$] bucks. what you get is huge.

                            This is just what I was looking for in my start-up ENG endeavour. It's durable, looks good, sounds great and the price was right too. Have been using it for a couple week and have yet to find any problems. I'm not expecting fantastic sound but from what I've heard voices are clear, background noise is limited and reproduction is what I expected. I'd get one again in an instant.

                            Great Mic. Purchased a bunch of these to loan to students doing news video interviews. Build quality seems to match the much beloved Electro-Voice 635A. Sound quality seems to be about the same as the EV mic.

                            Would highly recommend for ENG use, the long handle allows you to put a flag on the mic, and have enough room to hold it, and to reach out to the person you are interviewing.

                                    This mic has great sound quality. It is light weight and the extra long lenght comes in handy when attaching mic flags.

                                      Used for interviews for radio and eng. Love the long handle and robust feel. Less popping and a warmer sound than my EV. Great value.

                                        Just as good as the handheld stick mic provided to me at my employment at a TV station. This mic as just as good if not better.

                                        I have purchased this Mic and used it on the location shoot recently.
                                        It is a very good mic for how much it is.
                                        Sound quality is fantastic.
                                        It is slim yet solid.

                                        I recommend this Mic to other field cameramen and soundies.
