The Audio-Technica ATM410 is a dynamic microphone with a cardioid polar pattern. It is designed specifically for close-up vocal use in professional live-sound applications. The cardioid polar pattern of the microphone is more sensitive to sound originating directly in front of the element, making it useful for controlling feedback, reducing pickup of unwanted sounds and providing isolation between performers. The output of the microphone is a 3-pin XLRM-type connector. The microphone is enclosed in a rugged housing. Its multi-stage windscreen effectively controls popping, distortion from sibilant sounds and wind noise. The included AT8470 Quiet-FlexT stand clamp permits mounting on any microphone stand with 5/8"-27 threads. A soft protective pouch is also included.
This cardioid dynamic workhorse is designed for smooth, natural vocal reproduction and low noise. Equipped with a neodymium magnet for high output, and a multi-stage grille design for excellent protection against plosives, this super-durable microphone is built to stand up to life on the road. Its cardioid polar pattern reduces pickup of sounds from the sides and rear, maximizing isolation from other sound sources and minimizing feedback.
