Very underrated microphone
Handreas 06.03.2020
First some general info: The mic has a pad and a high-pass filter. Always nice to have. It's not the biggest pencil-style mic, so finding space for it in a cramped environment (like a drumset) is usually not a huge problem. It can also handle _a lot_ of spl. 158dB to be exact. So If you ever need to mic a jet engine, this will do the job!

It has a somewhat different sound compared to a lot of other pencil condensers. Where a lot of cheaper mics will have a pretty flat response up to a point and then an overhyped high-end response, these have a lot smoother high end and a somewhat tight mid-range feel. I'm not completely sure what it is exactly, because the included frequency chart shows nothing out of the ordinary, but they do have a sound of their own. Before eq and compression it already sounds very smooth and "processed".

It's a very good percussion mic. Easily my favourite snare mic so far! I also use them on grand pianos with excellent results. I have yet to try it on other acoustic instruments, but I have no reason to think it won't sound good.

AE5100 - works not for me!
Valdez18 24.09.2017
After reading good reviews on Audio Technica AE5100 bought at Thomanns. It never worked for me: Today the findal test: Expensive guitar, RME babyface pro interface, vovox cable....everything sounds like plastic, like a cheap guitar. Same conditions with Neumann TLM102: Sounds like the original guitar. I will not exclude that there is something wrong with my mic, but I cannot recommend this mic for serious recording of acoustic guitar.

EIN WAHRER ALLROUNDER !!!
Khodadad 12.11.2009
ich wollte für meine studio 3 amtliche overheads kaufen und habe so ziemlich alles ausprobiert, was es an angesagten overhead-micros momentan auf den markt gibt. diese overheads habe ich ausprobiert: RODE NT-5, RODE NT-4, AKG C 1000, AKG C 391 B, AUDIX ADX 51, SHURE SM 94 LC. damit ich möglichst viel ausprobiere habe ich natürlich auch ein paar overheads aus höheren preisklasse getestet

zum beispiel: AKG C 414 BXL II und Neumann KM 184. aber als sieger stand für mich am ende das wünderschöne japanische micro traum AUDIO TECHNICA AE 5100. natürlich möchte ich darauf hinweisen, dass das meine entscheidung von mein individueller geschmack abhengt. das AUDIO TECHNICA AE 5100 klingt sehr warm, aber gleichzeitig auch sehr seidig. in höhenbereich ist es dezent angehoben, so dass es für das ohr sehr angenehm klingt, aber trotztdem keine bissige höhen verursacht. ein andere entscheidender kauffaktor war für mich die relativ gute wiedergabe in bassbereich, was bei anderen kleinmembran mircos zu wünschen übrig lies.

ich finde preisleistungsmäßig ist dieses babe unschlagbar.
