Just brilliant
27.06.2016
Love this microphone. I have used it live for everything starting from speech to instruments and even choir. I have also recorded 2 cd's with the vocal being recorded on the ae5400. The clarity of this microphone is up there with the very best. It is also surprisingly resistant too, a clumsy lady once dropped it head first onto tiles...I was sure there was going to be something damaged...but it just took a few seconds for the 48v to re-stabilize and it was working fine :)

The sound is good, this mic can be in one line with "neumann kms 105". Very sensitive, and bright.

Super!
22.04.2014
Habe noch einem guten Gesangsmikro für mich und meine Frau gesucht ohne preisliche Einschränkungen in Kauf nehmen zu müssen. Somit haben wir unter Live-Bedingungen verschiedene Kondensator Mikros der Top-Liga getestet (z.B. Neumann KMS104, Shure KSM9, ...). In der Endauswahl waren das Neumann sowie das Audio Technica. Hier hat uns beiden das Audio Technica deutlich besser gefallen, da der Klang nach unserem Empfinden mehr Wärme und Charakter hat und klarer wirkt. Wir haben uns beide für dieses Mikro entschieden, da es uns absolut überzeugt hat. Zudem für 150 weniger als andere Top-Kondensator-Mikros ein klarer Preis-Leistungs-Tipp!

Audio-Technica AE 5400

Dieses Mikrofon wurde mir von einem befreundeten Tontechniker empfohlen, der dieses Mikrofon in seiner Firma live als auch im Studio seit Jahren als Standard einsetzt. Ich habe das AE 5400, das mir bis dato völlig unbekannt war, gekauft und nie bereut.
Richtig vergleichen konnte ich erst im nachhinein mit diversen anderen hochqualitativen Mikros. Als einziger ernstzunehmender Konkurrent kam eigentlich nur das Neumann KMS 105 in Frage, wobei ich selbst hier dem AE 5400 wegen seiner Wärme klar den Vorzug gebe.
Also insgesamt eine klare Empfehlung.
