  • 1Description

Designed for the demanding musician, the Audio-Technica Artist Elite series AE-5400 brings studio grade sonic quality and performance to the stage. This large diaphragm condenser microphone features the same element found in the famed AT4050 studio microphone. Primarily designed for vocal capturing the wide, linear frequency response renders the microphone more than adequate to perform in a variety of applications. The cardioid polar pattern features a uniform frequency response and optimum rejection at the off-axis sections of the capsule. The result is excellent rejection of noise and feedback. The large diaphragm condenser element handles high Sound Pressure Levels (SPL) resulting in maximum protection against noise and distortion. The AE-5400 is the ideal choice for stage performances, speech and broadcast applications.

    Audio-Technica AE5400 reviews

    AE-5400 Condenser Handheld Microphone is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 3.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from place floor monitors and mics carefully In response to the previous review. The mic has a small back lobe. If the mic is on the stand or held in such a way that the back of the mic points at the monitors that's a great way to get feedback. Keeping the mic parallel to the floor and not pointed at the monitors works wonders. The EQ on this mic lets you roll off the low end if you have users who like to eat the mic. Great capsule. Nicely engineered.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perform a in system tune Love how they manage to maintain a smooth frequency response when held close up or away from vocal range. I own three and plans are to purchase seven more. Please make sure you tune them well with your monitors and feed back will be cut to very little or none at all when they are turned toward the monitors.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Mic Great Mic. I've owned it for over a year. One really has to watch for live stage where feedback can be a problem. The mic is really great and does do what it says. Maybe someone has an answer on how to isolate it more from monitors.
