The AE2300 features Audio-Technica’s proprietary double-dome diaphragm construction, giving it high-frequency and transient response that far exceeds typical dynamic microphones.
With its rugged, brass metal construction and low-profile design (able to be placed unobtrusively in a variety of applications) and the ability to handle high SPLs, the AE2300 is a versatile performer, able to capture sound from guitar amps, brass and woodwind, drums and percussion instruments with clarity and precision.
The double-dome diaphragm construction allows the AE2300 to maintain directionality across the entire frequency range, with little off-axis colouration (frequency response is nearly identical at 0º, 90º and 180º) for excellent phase cohesion in multiple mic set-ups. The microphone is also equipped with a switchable low-pass filter that cuts out harsh, high-frequency noise, such as hiss from a guitar amp or hi-hat bleed, without negatively affecting the overall tone of an instrument – an especially useful tool in live settings to get a clear, focussed sound.
