AT8015 : Line + Gradient
Condenser Microphone
.: AT8015 LINE + GRADIENT CONDENSER MICROPHONE :.
Designed for video production and broadcast (ENG/EFP) audio acquisition, the AT8015 provides the
narrow acceptance angle desirable for long-distance sound pickup, along with excellent sound
rejection from the sides and rear of mic. The roll-off position reduces the pickup of low-frequency
ambient noise (such as traffic, air-handling systems, etc.), room reverberation and mechanically
coupled vibrations.
