Audio Technica perfect stereo mic

By JJ 4 Color

This is an awesome stereo condenser mic, especially at this price. I'm using it atop my Blackmagic 4K Cinema Camera and it greatly enhances the audio experience.

Solid Microphone for the price

I've been using this the Audio-Technica microphone for a few weeks. It replaced my Azden SMX-10 shotgun mic that developed a static sound after after 2 years of use. The A-T mic does a solid job of recording outdoors with little or no post processing required. I'm quite pleased with the performance thus far with my Panasonic video camera. The soft sided pouch is a nice extra too.

Inexpensive, but Quality System

Not a professional studio Mic setup, but for someone on a budget and wanting a good quality Mic setup, it is great.

Great background audio

Perfect for outdoor music concerts with a solid sound system. Great for picking up natural sounds at close range, (wind in trees and a small stream/waterfall). Does not pick up voices/conversations well when more than 4-5 feet away. My difficulty with this piece of equipment is that you have no idea how long the battery will last, there was no indicator for me whether or not the equipment was working - had to wait to see it in production (why I though unreliable). Also, changing the battery is difficult - I needed pin nose pliers to change the battery.

Worth the money, don't expect too much

I'm happy enough with the quality from this microphone. It works and it sounds more professional than the on camera mic. The battery seems like it will last a long time and the cord is easy enough to keep out of the way. (I wrap it around the front of the shoe mount to keep it off my screen). I would only use this as a replacement for the on board mic for quick audio. To get better results, get the mic closer to your speaker/talent. If you've got $ to spend, don't get a rode - buy a external recorder and this for your quick and dirty work and as a backup.

I used the microphone to record a concert in a small venue. It did great! Not too much background noise came in and the audio quality on the video is very good.

Don't Buy This - - Really.

I bought this as a supplemental microphone to attach to a GoPro and my iPhone. The audio quality is usable but the pickup pattern is so tight it only captures audio at very close range. Which means adding gain to the audio in post which increases the ever present buzz of the mic.

Is this battery powered or externally powered? One review mentions changing the battery ("required needle-nose pliers"); but the specs here say "Power Requirements = 2-10VDC plug-in power". So which is it?
Asked by: Roger L.
According to the Audio-Technica page for the Pro 24-CM underneath the "Features" tab; You can use it with an LR44 battery in microphone inputs that are not equipped with plugin power. Or, you can use it without the LR44 battery with microphone inputs that are equipped with mic plugin power. https://www.audio-technica.com/cms/wired_mics/97a500a93cd279a8/index.html

How does the sound quality of this mic compare to the Audio-Technica AT8024?
Asked by: Gregg
This mic is stereo only, and has a little less low end frequency response than the AT8024, but otherwise the overall sound quality is very similar.

I'm sorry, I'm unsure. We use ours with a Canon Rebel t7i. I would say it most likely is, but not 100% certain.

question

Is this compatible with a Panasonic HC-V750?
Asked by: Audrey B.
The basic answer is yes. This microphone is compatible with the 3.5mm audio input jack on that model according to the specs on this website. As for mounting, I cannot say. I've only mounted this mic on a stand.

question

will this mic work with my canon vixia HF R500?
Asked by: Rich C.
I use one with a Canon G20 and G30 with no problems. I don't believe that camera has an accessory mount, so you'll need something like this to attach the mic to the camera <a href= http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/918053-REG/vello_cb_510_dual_shoe_brackt.html target= _blank >http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/918053-REG/vello_cb_510_dual_shoe_brackt.html</a> .
