Audio-Technica AT8022 X/Y Stereo Condenser Microphone

X/Y stereo microphone condenser offering a compact housing and the pristine sound quality of a live sound field

MFR# AT8022

Product Description

Ideal for video camera-mount use, stereo field recording, interviews and home recording, the versatile Audio-Technica AT8022 stereo condenser offers a compact housing and the pristine sound quality of a live sound field. Its coincident capsule configuration produces an X/Y stereo image in a small housing. The microphone is supplied with two cables for use with either pro or consumer gear. It offers switchable low-frequency roll-off and the convenience of battery or phantom power.

In symmetrical mode the Y-shaped cable has two XLR connectors that allow for phantom powering the microphone. In asymmetrical mode, it requires the use of an AA battery and a 3.5mm mini-jack output connector.

The AT8022 is thus the most professional broadcast microphone for use on camera, digital recorder or DSLR.

The AT8022 is equipped with two 21mm diameter capsules mounted in a 180° parallel back-to-back configuration. This proprietary stereo principle developed by Audio-Technica offers a fairly wide stereo angle (instead of two capsules at 90°) which saves space.

The AT8022's diaphrahms are doubly embossed: a hexagonal shape and a relief print. By using this manufacturing principle patented by Audio-Technica, the stability of the membrane is thereby increased, and unwanted noise is kept at bay.

Robust, all metal construction, ideal for use in professional broadcast environments.

Between the upper portions of the parallel capsules is a damper, which makes it possible to change the angle; up to a 120° opening for an expanded stereo image without central gaps.

The AT8022 is equipped with two 21mm diameter capsules mounted in a 180° parallel back-to-back configuration. The membranes are of 16.3mm diameter and are to a thickness of 2 microns.

Ideal for stereo field recording, interviews and home recording, the highly versatile AT8022 is both compact and lightweight and is ideal for compact handheld or video camera-mount use.

In symmetrical mode the Y-shaped cable has two XLR connectors that allow for phantom powering the microphone. In asymmetrical mode, it requires the use of an AA battery and a 3.5mm mini-jack output connector.

I would like to thank VK for the wonderful sales assistance, service and prices. This was my first purchase with you and it won't be my last. I only wish I'd discovered you years ago!

I had two Grammy wins this year - Ray LaMontagne & Carolina Chocolate Drops. Both made with help from Vintage King!

In almost 20 years in Pro audio buying, never did I receive a unit so well packed and exactly as described. Works flawlessly. The whole process has been so smooth. I will never hesitate to do business with you guys in the future and will recommend you to everyone I know.

This was my first experience buying something from Vintage King (although I surf the "used" categories on the website frequently!), and, despite being on the other side of the world, I had absolutely no trouble and everything went very smoothly.

My experience with Vintage King was excellent. The order was here fast considering it was out of stock. The sales person had SKB send it to me directly and I couldn't have been more pleased.
Michael D.
From the minute I placed my order I was kept well-informed through each step in your process. Even though I was buying a comparatively modest piece of gear, your attention to detail made me feel like I was purchasing a six-figure mixing desk.
