“A MILESTONE IN CONDENSER DESIGN”

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.

“AUDIO-TECHNICA’S LARGEST-EVER ELEMENT”

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.

“PURE INNOVATION, NOT EMULATION…”

As much as we admire the great microphones of the world, this new 50 Series cardioid condenser is pure innovation, not emulation.
