    Audio-Technica AT8022 reviews

    AT8022 X/Y Stereo Phantom and Battery Powered Field Microphone is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 12.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Sounds Great! I bought the AT8022 mic for use with a Kodak Zi8 video camera to capture live recordings of acoustic fingerstyle guitar playing, because the audio quality of the built-in mic, as expected, is so-so. With my set-up, the audio quality of the playback is quite realistic, as if you were hearing it live. Very professional sounding results. I also love the versatility of the phantom or battery power. Only have one small negative about the mic, which is, the length of the cord with the 1/8 jack is only 2 feet in length. To get proper placement of the mic up close, and keeping the video camera at least 6 feet away, I had to buy an extension cable. Other than that, I am extremely pleased with my purchase.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very good Micro I use this micro with my Sony Z5. The internal microphone of my camera is not persuasive. With the AT8022 i habe the feeling as the sun rises. Bright, clear, three-dimensional. Only the Bass feeling ist a little bit reluctant. But a very good purchase for this price. Hardly to exceed

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Solution I am a professional videographer. This microphone is proving to be an excellent solution for video recording choral concerts. I always setup my camcorder at the back of the auditorium and need to set microphones much closer to the singers and in front of the audience as much as possible. I have routinely used wireless XLR clip-on transmitters on 2 microphones at the top of a tall microphone stand with a cross bar to hold the mics at 90-degrees to each other. That's an awkward amount of weight at the top of a skinny mic stand, and balancing the audio from both mics is always challenging. The AT8022 provides a much cleaner solution, with a single cable discreetly leading down the pole to near the base, where I connect the two transmitter modules to the right and left cable ends. In addition to being a cleaner setup, it gives me better access to the transmitter modules if I need to change batteries, turn them on/off, etc. The stereo separation is better than ever, and the microphone sensitivity seems to be nearly perfect for this application.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Affordable quality! Great stereo microphone for live field recording. Both phantom and battery powered.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A very flexible workhorse I have had this mic for over two years and have been very pleased with the results. I use it primarily for loud rock shows and it has not let me down. It captures a true sound--even at higher dBs--with nice stereo separation. I also love the fact that it supports both battery and phantom power, and provides XLR and 3.5mm output plugs. This is solidly-built mic that should last me--given decent care--for many years to come. It is worth every penny in my book.
