Audio-Technica AT8035 overview

  • 1Description

The AT8035 from Audio-Technica is a fixed-charge shotgun condenser microphone with a line + gradient polar pattern well suited for video production, broadcast audio acquisition, wildlife recording, and high-quality sound reinforcement. The microphone requires 11 to 52V phantom power, but may be powered from a 1.5V AA battery.

The AT8035 features a highly directional polar pattern that provides a narrow acceptance angle to provide crisp, clear audio reproduction that is desirable for long-distance sound pickup. The microphone offers a frequency response of 40 Hz to 20 kHz and features an 80 Hz low frequency roll-off switch to help eliminate undesired rumble. The microphone is enclosed in a rugged housing and features a standard 3-pin XLRM type connector. The AT8035 ships with a stand clamp for 5/8"-27 threaded stands, a 5/8"-27 to 3/8"-16 threaded adapter, a windscreen, an AA battery, and a protective carrying case.

  • Designed for professional recording, broadcasting and film/TV/video production
  • Length is well-suited for ENG, outdoor recording and other specialized uses
  • Provides the narrow acceptance angle desirable for long-distance sound pickup
  • Excellent sound rejection from the sides and rear of mic
  • Switchable low-frequency roll-off
  • Operates on battery or phantom power

    Audio-Technica AT8035 reviews

    AT8035 - Shotgun Condenser Microphone is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 37.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great audio for video Used with Canon XH-A1 HDV camcorder for family event capture and in noisy environments. Very good directionality and sensitivity with reasonable noise. I shot video of our dog running around the yard chasing a ball and the audio of leaves rustling beneath her feet and her breathing is clear and crisp up to distances of 20 feet without a lot of extraneous noise from airplanes overhead. I'm very happy with the quality of build and it's light enough to not add much weight to the camera. It's too long to keep on the camera in the camera bag I have but this can't be helped if you want a very directional shotgun mike.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great sound for a low price! I purchased the AT8035 after considering many shotgun microphones in the same price-range and no other microphone is as highly rated. I use this for short film productions and the quality is superb. GOOD: Length, interchangeable threads for mount, great off-axis noise rejection, gold-plated XLR plug, runs on phantom power OR battery (included). BAD: It can pick up harsh echoes in large rooms where they occur... but that is typical of this kind of microphone.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic Sound I've used this mic previously as a handheld and currently camera mounted (for field doc shooting). The sound quality is top notch -- clearly picks up the voices I want while reducing the noise that I don't. Despite its longer length I still find the best one stop shop option for my purposes -- I use it primarily with a shock mount attached to my shoe mount, though I've gotten an extra shoe mount attachment to replace the camera's (EX3) mic mount in order to use both an on board light and mic. The shock mount is really essential to this setup. Makes solo shooting in noisy environments problem-free.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Workhorse We use the 8035 mic for recording audio interviews through a Zoom H4n recorder and also plug the mic directly into video cameras. It has a great range so we don't have to have the mic uncomfortably close to the subject. The audio quality is terrific.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outstanding Performance! For the money, this mic is great. Exceed My Expectations! I first used the mic on location while filming outdoor cooking show. The mic was able to pick up every sound detail, water boiling, chicken frying, etc. The chrisp sound detail added alot to the production. At one point, someone started up a leaf blower about 75 feet away. The host of the show keept right on talking. With the mic on a boom pole about 5 feet away, he could be heard clearly over the leaf blower in the background. My only complaint would be that the mic is so sensitive that don't think I will be able to use it mounted directly on my camera without some kind of shock mount. It picks up every bit of camera handling noise. So, if that's your plan you should get shock mount also. I am using the mic with a carbon fiber boom pole and the Rycote S-SERIES WINDSHIELD/SUSPENSION 450 KIT.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth the money I finally had a chance to get this mic and the AT 897 I also bought out into the field for testing. I mounted both on a Canon XH A1 video camera using XLR inputs without attenuation and the mic levels on the camera all the way up. I was shooting birds in trees 30 to 100 feet away and did voice testing of myself a few feet in front of the camera. I'm pleased it had clean sound quality and good range with pretty rich voice pickup at a few feet forward, and much more ambiance further out. While it's what I expected of a shotgun, I've listened to cheaper mics that don't have as clean of a sound pickup. Most noticeable were the evenness of sound levels across the spectrum. No booming lows (the cutoff filter was not on) or lost highs. It does have a back lobe that picks up as expected in a shotgun. I did notice the back lobe, but then I had the volumes max'd out. Excellent side rejection; I was impressed at how moving off axis levels dropped off considerably. Compared to the 897, the 8035 was about 20% hotter with volumes on my Canon XH A1 peaked out without attenuation on the XLR inputs. It's also longer than the 897 by at least 3 inches, so when mounted in the fixed camera shotgun mount, the end of the mic could be seen in the widest shots. I plan on mounting it on an accessory shoe mount above the camera. I expect it'll be well out of wide shots. This isn't a 416 copy, nor does it try to be. But for the price it delivered good quality sound on my tests.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing quality I had an EPK I was doing for a band, and when it came time for interviews I was loathe to use the shotgun mic I had, which had a really high signal to noise ratio, and very weak pickup. Someone offered for us to use this instead, and after I plugged it into my Tascam DR-60 II I was blown away. No perceivable signal noise, crisp vocal pickup. Even more surprising, we were using this indoors which is not a recommended environment for longer shotguns, but this handled it quite well. A great budget option.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Clarity! I was a bit skeptical when I was looking at this mic online because of the low price, but it performs really well! I use the mic for low/no budget comedy videos and the sound comes out with minimal hiss or white noise. Perfect kicking your low budget projects up a notch!
