  • Overview

    The Limited Edition AE6100/LE microphone has been discontinued. Please see the AE6100 Hypercardioid Dynamic Handheld Microphone.

    To celebrate Audio-Technica’s 50th Anniversary, A-T has introduced a special limited edition AE6100/LE Anniversary Microphone in a silver-colored metallic finish with blue accents. A unique serial number is etched on the surface of each limited edition AE6100/LE.

    The Artist Elite AE6100/LE hypercardioid dynamic vocal microphone delivers clean articulation, fast transients and high-output, assertive sound for the uncompromising vocalist. With a polar pattern tailored for outstanding on-axis response, the microphone offers maximum feedback rejection and superior anti-shock engineering for low handling noise. 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.

  • Q & A

    Does it connect with PC? Or do I need to buy an accessory to convert the wire so I can record? Can it be connected through USB?


    To connect a professional microphone that uses a 3-pin XLR type output connector to the 3.5mm MICROPHONE jack on a computer, we recommend a particular adapter cable that will distribute the mono signal from the microphone to both the left and right sides of the computers stereo microphone jack. The adapter cable is the Hosa brand model XVM-105F, 110F or 115F (available in 5, 10 and 15 foot lengths). Since the line is unbalanced, keep the cable length as short as possible to reduce the pick up of any noise. Alternatively, you could connect the microphone through USB. This will require an XLR to USB adapter cable such as the Lightsnake brand USB microphone cable. Be aware however that if you are monitoring the mic audio, there will be a slight delay (know as digital latency) from the time you speak into the mic and the time you hear it.
