The debut of our flagship 50 Series, the AT5040 represents a milestone in condenser design, offering remarkably musical high-fidelity performance, with profound realism and depth, presence and purity of sound.
Four-part rectangular element
Exclusively for the AT5040, Audio-Technica engineers developed a four-part rectangular element, the pinnacle of our recent breakthroughs in sound-capture technology.
By using four diaphragms in a single capsule, the AT5040 delivers the benefits of an exceptionally large diaphragm – along with an extremely low noise floor - without increased weight or decreased transient response.
100% Quality Control
Every AT5040 is hand assembled and individually inspected ensuring 100% quality control.
As much as we admire the great microphones of the world, this new 50 Series cardioid condenser is pure innovation, not emulation.
