Product Highlights

  • Figure-8 Pickup Pattern
  • Dual Ribbon Construction

  • METAlliance Certified
  • Assembled by Hand

The AT4080 from Audio-Technica is a professional-quality active ribbon microphone that offers a classic ribbon tone with warm, natural sound along with a robust build quality for lasting durability. The mic has a dual ribbon construction for increased sensitivity, and the Audio-Technica ribbon design has 18 patents pending, including MicroLinear ribbon imprint technology, which protects the ribbons from lateral flexing and distortion. The mic has powerful N50 neodymium magnets to produce a high output level, along with a high SPL capability and extended frequency response.

The mic is produced by hand across the stages of corrugation, imprint, and assembly. The open housing design helps to minimize internal reflections, while the superfine mesh protects the ribbons. The mic has active electronics that require phantom power, which provides a stable impedance and high output. A custom shock mount is included to provide superior isolation. The AT4080 is certified by the METAlliance and is designed to provide years of reliable operation.

        Comments about Audio-Technica AT4080 Bidirectional Active Ribbon Microphone:

        This is a great mic. I'm going to buy another one so I can use them as a stereo pair, and also for general use with acoustic instruments. I play horn, and this mic is exactly what I've been looking for.
        Its very robust (thankfully, as I've given it a bit of a hard time...I'm sure other ribbons would not have survived...), plenty of signal, and is truly a joy to use.

          Comments about Audio-Technica AT4080 Bidirectional Active Ribbon Microphone:

          I record vocals at my home studio. I've spent alot of time trying to get the digital harshness out of my recordings. It came down to having a good mic. This mic solved that problem. Now vocals are warm sounding with no additional processing required going into the track. I also like the fact that you don't need an external ribbon power supply to achieve enough gain going into the pre amp. Phantom power is all that is needed. A really great product at a really great price (B&H was $100 less than any other competitor)
