  • Overview

    Equipped with newly designed internal shock mounting for reduced handling and stage noise, this cardioid dynamic workhorse is designed for smooth, natural vocal reproduction. The microphone features super-durable construction for long-lasting performance, a rare-earth magnet for high output, and a multi-stage grille design for excellent protection against plosives. Its cardioid polar pattern reduces pickup of sounds from the sides and rear, maximizing isolation from other sound sources and minimizing feedback.

        Comments about Audio-Technica ATM510 Cardioid Dynamic Handheld Microphone:

        I haven't had this mic long but, if it keeps performing like it has the few times I've used it, I will have it for a long, long time! Great sound reproduction and virtually no "p" pops! Not sure what else to say except that I'm happy that I own this mic and will get a couple more in the future.
