  • Overview

    Audio-Technica’s high-performance AE4100 cardioid dynamic vocal microphone delivers aggressive sound that stays up-front in the mix. Optimized for the stage, the microphone features superior anti-shock engineering for minimum handling noise. Its rugged construction is engineered to stand up to the rigors of touring. For ultimate protection against vocal plosives, the mic’s hardened-steel outer grille is lined with fine steel mesh and a layer of open-cell foam. A foam disk positioned on top of the element assembly provides the final layer of “pop” protection.

            Thank you for your inquiry. This is a very hard question to answer. Not every company utilize the same method of measurement. Also, if you are comparing to a condenser microphone, sensitivity will be much lower.

        • Q:

          Does this use rare earth magnets like the ATM61HE

          Or like the P635 does it use neo mags? I love those old mics

            The accompanying literature with my ATM410 says Hi-Energy neodymium magnet.

            I love the true and smooth sound from my low alto through soprano.

            Thank you for your inquiry. The AE4100 does use a neodymium magnet.
