Japanese quality at its best to capture voice and nature sounds
Antonibruno-UK, 27.06.2017
I bought this outstanding microphone with main objective to record nature sounds and human voice. The build quality is amazing! I am a mechanical engineer and can appreciate the build quality and precision of this microphone.

I normally record nature sounds using ORTF with outstanding results! When I plug the 15m Mogami cables to my Roland R26 and connect them to my two AT8033 in ORTF positioning, I can hear sounds that I could not normally hear with my naked ears.

The versatility of them to be able to operate with one battery supplying phantom power, allows me to be flexible to connect to equipment lacking phantom power.

Vielseitiges Mikrofon
DanielR, 15.10.2009
Wer auf der Suche nach einem guten Universal-Mikro ist sollte sich das Audio Technica AT8033 auf jeden Fall genauer ansehen: Das stabile und gut verarbeitete Mikrofon macht einen hochwertigen Eindruck und liegt angenehm in der Hand.

Die außergewöhnlich schlanke Form hebt es klar aus der Masse der Kleinkondensator-Mikros mit Nieren-Charakteristik, die Soundqualität überzeugt: Der lineare Frequenzverlauf macht es vielseitig einsetzbar, ob für Sprache (dank des langen Schafts auch durchaus gut als kleines Reportermikro zu gebrauchen) oder zur Instrumentenabnahme.

Ob es sich beim dauerhaften Einsatz in rauhen Umgebungen (Konzerte etc.) bewährt kann ich nicht beurteilen - als Generalist für den gelegentlichen Gebrauch taugt es aber auf jeden Fall.

Efficace
Bertrand Y., 16.06.2011
Acheté pour sonoriser un bodhràn ( instrument de percu irlandais), et c'est un des rares micros qui se suffisent d'une alimentation faible. En effet pour jouer en HF avec une alim fantome c'est difficile. Or ce micro répond très bien et fonctionne avec la seule énergie de la pile 9 v du système HF.
Bonne réponse, surtout dans les bas médium, un peu trop ouvert à mon goût mais un super statique

Mikrofon ok Reduziergewinde naja...
Mr_Lausch, 12.11.2013
Gutes Mikrofon vom Sound her, Sehr leicht und positiv ist auch die Batteriespeisung. Das einzige Negative ist die Mikrofonklemme konkret das Reduziergewinde. Das ist nämlich nur aus Plastik.
