  • Overview

    The PRO 24 has been discontinued. Please see the PRO 24-CM Stereo Condenser Microphone.

    The PRO 24 sets a new price/performance standard in stereo microphone technology. Designed for professional recording and DAT field use, it offers the convenience of affordable, high-quality stereo pickup in a single microphone. Its compact, lightweight design is perfect for camera-mount use. The microphone features a pair of cardioid elements in an X-Y configuration to provide the spatial impact and realism of a live sound field. It features battery-free operation when used with recording devices that provide plug-in power at the mic input. Like all Audio-Technica mics, the PRO 24 is rugged; itís built to endure the rigors of field production.

  • Q & A

    Am trying to use Pro 24 mic with Toshiba laptop/Windows 10. The computer does not see the mic. What to do? [Power is on, and battery brand new. Also does not work with power off.]


    For technical support, please contact the Audio-Technica United States (ATUS) Audio Solutions Team at: Thanks!


    Would this work well to record a woodwind or brass instrument with a Zoom H2?


    Please contact our Audio Solutions Department at (330) 686-2600 ext 5000 or at for assistance with this.


    Do you sell replacement windshield for a Pro 24 condenser microphone? If so, how much would it be, including shipment to zip code 30012? If not, where can I find a similar replacement windshield? Thanks, IVD


    Please contact our Parts Department at (330) 686-2600 ext 5002 or at for assistance with this.


    How can you use it with a mac? I'm doing a project for my school involving the use of this microphone, and I have a Macbook from late 2006 running on 10.7.5 and I can't find out how to set it up. I have two jacks that fit the microphone but when I plug it in and turn it on (Yes, I selected Line In for my microphone preferences) for both ways nothing happened. Please Help!


    Mac computers are LINE level rather than MIC level which is what you will need for microphones. You may use an external soundcard that will allow for microphones and MIC level.


    Will it plug into an iPhone? I am shooting movies and video trailers, I use my iPhone for audio and I am looking for a new mike for basically what this is used for. I am just wondering if I need an adapter or if it will plug in directly to the iPhone?


    You could use Griffin iMic with Apple's docking port to USB adapter. The iMic is a very small and neat preamp, which runs off the USB power. Note it has to be the proper Apple product not an imitation.


    Thank yuou for your inquiry. This will not easily work. You will need an adapter for the iPhone and the only adpaters I know of are for mono microphones.


    Would the PRO 24 perform well as an ambiant sound mic? I am working on a project in which I must record ambiant sounds, both indoors and out, using a digital recorder. The sounds are intended to be stand alone recordings and not part of another media (such as film or video). Would the PRO 24 by suited for this task? Thanks


    Thank you for your inquiry, I would think this would be a good mic for that application.


    Would the Pro24 mic be good choice for a overhead drum mic? looking to get some condenser mics for drum overheads & notice the pro 24 mics with xy could this one mic take place of (2) condenser mics?


    The PRO-24 would not be my first choice in terms of over-head mic'ing for drums, especially because of the following: 1. It's max input sound level is 119 dB. Drums at that distance can be louder and thus clip out the microphone. 2. The microphone has an unbalanced connection. Connecting it to a mixer by using an adapter to convert it to XLR use, and sending Phantom Power, would permanently damage the microphone and void the warranty. If you wanted to choose a stereo microphone from drum overheads, the one I would recommend is the BP4025. It's more expensive, but it would be the correct/right microphone for the job. If you needed an inexpensive option, a pair of AT2021 microphones placed in an X/Y configuration would also work well. In short, you could try the PRO 24 for drum over-heads, but you may get undesirable results.


    One mic or two? This is probably not a product-specific question, but rather a general one. I'm thinking about buying this mic for an ethnography / oral history project that I'm working on. I would be using this both in field settings and in closed spaces, typically interviewing one person. I'm wondering if you'd recommend two stereo mics - one for me, the interviewer, and the other for my sources, or would one suffice? Thanks so much, Quin


    Thank you for your inquiry. As for using 1 microphone or 2 would depend upon how you are setting up the session. if both the interviewer and the interviewee are in close proximity in a quiet environment then one microphone could be fine. Otherwise, 2 microphones would be desirable.


    I have done many interviews with one or more people, using this mic - just the one. It has worked perfectly. The sound quality is great. But if you were doing this to get broadcast-quality results, you probably would need two (or more) mics.
