Product Description

AT 5040 Studio Vocal Microphone 

Audio-Technica’s premier studio vocal microphone, the AT5040 represents a milestone in condenser
design, offering remarkably musical high-fidelity performance, with profound realism and depth,
presence and purity of sound.

Designed as a first-choice vocal microphone, the AT5040 cardioid condenser features an extremely
smooth top end with controlled sibilance. Large-diaphragm characteristics and fast transient response
also make it ideal for recording acoustic instruments such as piano, guitar, strings and saxophone.

Four-Part Rectangular Element
The first of our design criteria for the AT5040 was purity of sound. To achieve this, Audio-Technica
engineers developed a four-part rectangular element, the pinnacle of our recent breakthroughs in
sound-capture technology. Four exquisitely matched ultra-thin diaphragms function together (with
outputs proprietarily summed) as Audio-Technica’s largest-ever element, providing combined surface
area twice that of a standard one-inch circular diaphragm.

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, decreased
transient response or other drawbacks that typically restrict diaphragm size.

Another key AT5040 design feature is advanced internal shock mounting that effectively decouples the
capsule from the microphone body. For additional isolation, each AT5040 is also provided with Audio-
Technica’s innovative new AT8480 shock mount.

100% Quality Control
Every AT5040 is hand assembled and individually inspected for 100% quality control. Each studio
microphone is enclosed in an elegant housing of aluminum and brass with high-quality gray finish for
durability and low reflectivity.

Discrete components have been selected for optimized capsule performance; in fact, every aspect of
the microphone has been carefully considered to minimize any effects on the audio signal.
