Audio-Technica AT8031 overview

  • 1Description

The Audio-Technica AT8031 is a handheld small-diaphragm cardioid condenser microphone designed for close-up capture of vocals and various acoustic instruments in recording sessions and live stage applications. Its condenser element yields a wide frequency response of 30 Hz to 20 kHz and a 137 dB maximum SPL. The cardioid polar pattern offers reliable on-axis directivity while attenuating off-axis sounds.

A switchable 80 Hz high-pass filter minimizes rumble and excessive low-frequencies. The supplied windscreen reduces plosives and wind noise. The AT8031 can be operated via phantom power or the included AA battery. It ships with a stand adapter and soft protective bag.

Ideal for close-up vocals, overheads, piano, and strings
Sound is similar to far more expensive studio microphones
Low-mass diaphragm ensures minimum distortion
Cardioid pattern's proximity effect provides added warmth when used close up
Operates on phantom or battery power
Maximum SPL of 137 dB via phantom power or 123 dB via battery power
Dynamic range of 113 dB via phantom power or 99 dB via battery power

    Audio-Technica AT8031 reviews

    AT8031 Handheld Small-Diaphragm Cardioid Condenser Microphone is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 2.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Microphone Great Price... I purchased this micrphone for public speech assemblies and I needed a micrphone that could use a battery when phantom power was unavailable. The pickup sensitivity is great, while the bass roll off switch is handy for outdoor use to reduce wind rumble. All in all, a great microphone!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good solid interview mic. I'm a radio reporter and often do interviews in the field. I bought this to replace my AT 813a (a similar model that Audio Technica doesn't make anymore, and that I accidentally dropped). I find it's not quite as bright and responsive as it's discontinued cousin but it still does the job. Nice clear signal. I use it with a Sound Devices 722 digital recorder, which provides phantom power. But you can also load a single AA battery into it and it'll work with pretty much any recorder. Great mic for the price.
