AT4050: Under the Hood

  1. Open acoustical environment of the symmetrical housing assembly minimizes unwanted internal reflections


  2. Dual-diaphragm capsule design maintains precise polar pattern definition across the full frequency range of the microphone


  3. The 2-micron-thick, vapor-deposited gold diaphragms undergo a five-step aging process so that the optimum characteristics achieved remain constant over years of use


  4. Floating-construction capsule assembly provides isolation from noise and vibration


  5. Transformerless circuitry virtually eliminates low-frequency distortion and provides superior correlation of highspeed transients


  6. Three switchable polar patterns: omni, cardioid and figure-of-eight


  7. State-of-the-art surface-mount electronics ensure compliance with A-Tís stringent consistency and reliability standards


The AT4050 utilizes dual, gold-vaporized and aged, large diaphragms to provide consistent, superior performance in three switchable polar patterns (cardioid, omnidirectional and figure-of-eight). A precision-machined, nickel-plated brass, acoustic element baffle provides enhanced element stability and optimal sensitivity, ensuring the capture of every nuance of a performance, every time.
