Robert over at JuicedLink recommended this mic to us along with a JuicedLink RA333 pre-amp. The RA333 hasn’t arrived yet but I wanted to do some tests to compare the audio quality to our Zoom H4 Boom Mic setup. The audio is much cleaner than the H4 setup and in the review video below, we did absolutely no noise reduction. There is a small amount of noise if you crank your speakers up but I didn’t clean it up so you could hear the actual audio.
The Audio Technica AT875 is a short shotgun condenser microphone that measures only seven inches in length and exhibits the sound quality and performance of larger, higher-priced shotgun microphones. The AT875 addresses the needs of videographers who prefer a short microphone that stays out of the frame, and efficiently rejects off-axis noise.
The AT875 operates on 11 to 52V phantom power, and a standard XLR output integrates connects to your audio equipment.The AT875 measures only seven inches in length and is an ideal choice for use with small video cameras.Our tests shows pretty good off-axis audio rejection although the pickup pattern may be larger than you might expect but it is actually pretty good for a two-person conversation.
