    Audio-Technica AT8415 reviews

    AT8415 Universal Shockmount is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 48.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Solid shock mount for a decent price I bought this one to replace the last one I had that we used at work (exact same model), which was just wonderful until the mount snapped off from the boom pole. I guess it had gotten worn down over the years (the equipment from the now defunct AV department there seems centuries old), and got flimsy near the screw area and finally, one day, it snapped off. I think the trick to keeping it in tip-top shape is to screw it on and off, as needed. Boom poles get banged around sometimes, and these shock mounts can get pretty battered in the process. So, overall, we're very happy with it, but I suppose it would be nice if it wasn't quite so malleable and delicate and ultimately, breakable.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Effective Reasonably Priced Mount The Audio Technica AT8415 Universal Shock Mount fits the smaller shanked mics very well as there are not too many shock mounts available at a reasonable price for these types of mounts. I needed to isolate a Boom Mounted EV vintage PL9 and have found the 8415 to work perfectly! The shank is 19mm on the PL9, fit is good, holds solidly and isolates well from the boom and the sounds a boom can make when moving into another position. The instructions state the mount will handle down to a 12mm shank.... might be a little loose with this small of a diameter but you can cross the bands for a tighter fit. Overall, very pleased with the product and as usual, B&H Photo provided excellent service with fast shipping.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product, if used properly The product, at first glance, does hold the mic loosely, but that is to accommodate for any larger mics that might be used. When using this for a boompole setup, I criss-cross the rubber bands for extra grip and security. Two bands get crossed horizontally in the front and two vertically in the rear so I am weaving the mic into a secure position. With this configuration, the shock mount works perfectly!!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Will Not fit the Rode NTG-3 I had a sennheiser shotgun mic for a long time and really liked this mount. When I replaced it with the Rode NTG-3, I found that it did not properly fit. The mic is a little too thin and slides around in the mount. There is nothing wrong with this mount, I just wanted to warn people who might order it for the NTG-3. Its unfortunate because most inexpensive shock mounts are not threaded, but use a cold-shoe, which is not suited to anyone who is not shooting audio with a dslr.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from solid build quality, holds mic loosely I've used this shock mount on a couple of small shoots for interviews. Used it with a Senheiser mic and a Rycote Softie sock. The mount seems to be very strong, and I'm not at all concerned about it breaking, which is why I bought it--the mount that came with the boom mic (Rode SM3) was plastic and broke far too easily in numerous different places. Two weaknesses I see are that it holds the mic loosely, and over time, the mic slides forward out of the shock mount and needs to be re-adjusted. Not a huge deal as it's quite manageable. Second, it does not mount on a camera, as my original shock mount did, though I suppose that's not so much a weakness, but rather a missing feature.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Huge Problem if using the Pearston 4P-SS Bought the B&H basic Kit that comes with this mount and the PearStone Shock Bands, but I am not able to use since the bands get cut as you put them in the grooves. The grooves are way way too small for these bands.... but as some of the other owners brought out you may need to dremel it to make it wider. The bands that come with it are pretty weak if you are using a heavy mic.So for now I am going to give it 3 stars until I am able to use it.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good, but has a little sag This is a good universal schock mount, though I would caveat universal to only include light-weight, short shotguns between .75 - 1.0 in diameter and 6 - 8 in length. As with many such mounts, there is an expected amount of sag due to the minimal tension of the elastics. Were they tighter, they wouldn't absorb as much handling noise, but it does feel like they could stand to be a little more snug around the microphone. I didn't have any issues with the mic slipping or turning in a way I didn't want, but over time, I still feel I might. Also, for the minimal cost, it would be nice to include a couple space elastic bands. That said, it performed exactly as intended and held my mic where I wanted it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Shotgun Shock Mount I use this AT shock mount with my Sennheiser shotgun microphone. It's been dependable for 13 years. I have taken in all over the world in some very rough conditions. I finally broke the bracket where it screws into my boom pole after all the abuse I've put it through. So I purchased the exact same one as a replacement. It's light weight, easy to use, and quick to put the microphone in or take it out. It's probably the best shock mount for the money in my opinion.
