        Comments about Audio-Technica AT8031 - Hand-Held Microphone:

        I'm a radio reporter and often do interviews in the field. I bought this to replace my AT 813a (a similar model that Audio Technica doesn't make anymore, and that I accidentally dropped). I find it's not quite as bright and responsive as it's discontinued cousin but it still does the job. Nice clear signal. I use it with a Sound Devices 722 digital recorder, which provides phantom power. But you can also load a single AA battery into it and it'll work with pretty much any recorder.

        Great mic for the price.

          Comments about Audio-Technica AT8031 - Hand-Held Microphone:

          I purchased this micrphone for public speech assemblies and I needed a micrphone that could use a battery when phantom power was unavailable. The pickup sensitivity is great, while the bass roll off switch is handy for outdoor use to reduce wind rumble.

          All in all, a great microphone!
