Audio-Technica AT875R Overview

With its smooth on-axis tone, great off-axis rejection, and straightforward operation, the Audio-Technica AT875R short shotgun microphone is well suited for budget-conscious indie films, TV shoots, nature recording, and documentary projects where simplicity and quality sound are prioritized.

The AT875R's high sensitivity allows it to perform reliably with a variety of microphone preamp classes. Its full-spectrum frequency response utilizes a gentle increase in high frequencies to enhance intelligibility and compensate for loss in clarity resulting from wind protection.

The durable housing ensures rugged dependability while maintaining a light weight that won't burden your boompole or camera, and the included accessories accommodate mounting the AT875R to a mic stand, boompole, or camera-mount microphone holder.

Quality Sound

Being less than 7" long, the AT875R is equally at home on a boompole or atop a camera. It uses an interference tube and a supercardioid polar pattern to yield focused on-axis directionality while attenuating rear-entry sound and rejecting sound at the sides. This makes the AT875R far more effective at capturing distant sources than the omnidirectional mics found in most cameras. Its 90 Hz to 20 kHz frequency response naturally reduces problematic bass frequencies from common sources such as traffic rumble and wind noise.

11 to 52 VDC Phantom Powered

With a balanced 3-pin XLR output and support for 11 to 52 VDC phantom powering, the AT875R is compatible with a variety of handheld audio recorders, field recorders, and mixer adapters as well as built-in preamps on many camcorders and cinema cameras.

Ideal for Boompole Mounting

The AT875R includes a mic clip for easy placement on a mic stand or boompole. Alternatively, mount the AT875R in the Audio-Technica AT8415 shockmount (available separately) to impede the transfer of vibrations between your boompole and the mic. The AT875R also includes two rubber O-rings that expand the microphone's diameter to fit the larger mic holders found on many high-end cameras.

Windscreen Minimizes Wind Noise

The AT875R has a foam windscreen to reduce unwanted wind noise from breezes, fans, heaters, and air conditioners. Enhanced attenuation of wind noise is possible with the addition of an optional windshield such as the Rycote 12 cm Super-Softie, which also provides high immunity to rain.

For maximum reduction of handling noise and wind noise in indoor or outdoor environments, consider the separately available Rycote Windshield Kit 3, a complete windjammer, windshield, and shockmount suspension system.

Would this microphone connect to the Zoom H1n? If so, how would it?
Asked by: Julian
Technically you can, but it's kind of a long walk. You would need to connect the mic to a Phantom Power Supply, and then to the H1. You may want to consider a self-powered mic (one AA battery) and the correct cable: https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/1171344-REG/senal_mc24_el_professional_shotgun_microphone.html https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/1221867-REG/kopul_xrsm_015b_xrsm_3_pin_xlr_female.html

question

I would like to connect AT875R to Line input in Canon 1Dx II camera, have I to add a phantom power module to run mic, and wich works properly? thanks
Asked by: Arturo
I have been using my microphone on a Panasonic AG-UX90 camera and all I do is plug it in. I do not think Phantom power is needed. Check your camera specifications to make sure. Also, you might want to check on the manufacturers website.

question

How can this be a shotgun? There is no visible diffraction grating along the sides of the case here. The manufacturer's spec sheet (at their website) shows a different case, with side walls gates to allow the classic shotgun interference effect.
Asked by: ZenGeekDad
The Audio-Technica AT875R truly is a shotgun microphone. The picture doesn't display the diffraction grating slots your asking about because of the way the item is displayed on the B&H webpage. They should of displayed more pictures at different angles. But there are four(4) diffraction grating slots... two on each side towards the front. You should know that this isn't the hightest quality shotgun microphone on the market, but for the price it's pretty much what you can expect. The sound quality is very professional. It rejects most sound arriving from the sides and completely rejects sound arriving from the rear. It does exactly what Audio-Technica stated. I use this microphone on my CANON XC15 camera with onboard Phantom Power. Hope this helps.
