Offering the greatest dynamic range of all Audio-Technica microphones to date, the AT5047 Cardioid Condenser Microphone is the perfect fit with vocals and instruments alike. It’s capable of capturing the full, expressive character of a sound source, regardless of how loud or soft.

The AT5047 includes four perfectly matched ultra-thin diaphragms that function together as Audio-Technica’s largest-ever element. By using these four diaphragms in a single capsule, the AT5047 offers the benefits of an exceptionally large diaphragm without the increased weight, decreased transient response, or any of the other drawbacks that might be restricted by diaphragm size. Plus, it delivers an extremely low noise floor of 6 dB.

This newest addition to Audio-Technica’s line of microphones features the advanced internal shock mounting design originally featured on the AT5040, which decouples the capsule from the body of the microphone, and also includes the innovative AT8480 shock mount.

Each AT5047 microphone is hand-assembled and individually inspected for the highest level of quality control. The microphone is enclosed in an elegantly crafted housing of aluminum and brass, sealed over with a high-quality silver finish. Every aspect of the AT5047 was crafted in dedication to the absolute purity of sound and each aspect of the design was chosen specifically for its minimal effects on the overall audio signal. The result is one of the highest performing professional cardioid condenser microphones in the industry.
