Audio-Technica AT8015 overview
The AT8015 from Audio-Technica is a line gradient condenser, phantom or battery powered, shotgun microphone with ideal sound rejection from the sides and rear of the mic to capture audio over long distances. It can be used in various environments for applications such as videos, TV broadcasts, and ENG (Electronic News Gathering) productions.
It features a roll-off position switch that reduces the pickup of low-frequency ambient noise like traffic, room reverberation, and mechanically coupled vibrations. The microphone comes with a stand clamp, a 5/8″ to 3/8″ adapter, a windscreen, an AA battery, and a protective carrying case.
