A Brief Guide to Microphones - Some Useful Accessories


Windscreens reduce problems of “popping” from close vocal use. They also help control the wind noise often encountered in outdoor applications and from heating/air conditioning air movements. The windscreen simply slips over the head of the microphone to completely cover all acoustic openings.

Shock Mounts

Microphone shock mounts help reduce mechanical noise transferred to a microphone through its mounting hardware. This includes the sound of physical contact with the pulpit, lectern or microphone stand, or even a foot tapping on a wooden stage.

Other Electronics

Audio-Technica also offers:

- Phantom power supplies for use with most condenser microphones requiring phantom power.

- A line matching transformer that permits use of low-impedance microphones with unbalanced high-impedance inputs.

- An in-line attenuator (for use with balanced, low-impedance mics) that prevents distortion caused by the overloading of sensitive input stages.

- A variety of electronic in-line microphone accessories designed to overcome common sound installation problems. These compact, phantom-powered units can be used to combine channels, add a switch, eliminate feedback, and control background noise, among other useful functions.


Durable microphone cables from A-T combine the protective properties of conductive vinyl and a rugged braided shield to ensure maximum rejection of AC hum and RF interference. Their supple, “low memory” material lets them lie flat without unsightly kinks and bends that can create a tripping hazard.

Stand Clamps

A large selection of microphone stand clamps for use with most A-T microphones is also available.
