Cardioid dynamic microphone
Our take on the Audio-Technica ATM510 by Crutchfield's Ralph Graves
A real workhorse
The Audio-Technica ATM510 can handle the demands of on-stage vocals. Its internal shock mounting reduces handling and stage noise, encased in a rugged, all-metal body that can hold up to years of hard use.
A built-in multi-stage grille filters out plosives and sibilance, while preserving high-frequency clarity. You'll enjoy smooth, natural vocal reproduction.

Dynamic Handheld Microphone: The Audio-Technica ATM510 is a dynamic microphone with a cardioid polar pattern and rare-earth magnet for high output, reduced feedback, and natural vocal production. It is designed specifically for close-up vocal use in professional live-sound applications.
Internal Shock Mounting: Equipped with newly designed internal shock mounting for reduced handling and stage noise, the Audio-Technica ATM510 cardioid dynamic handheld microphone is designed for smooth, natural vocal reproduction.
Cardioid Pattern: The cardioid polar pattern of the microphone is more sensitive to sound originating directly in front of the element, making it useful for controlling feedback, reducing pickup of unwanted sounds and providing isolation between performers. Cardioid polar pattern reduces pickup of sounds from the sides and rear, improving isolation of desired sound source.
Rare-Earth Magnet: The Audio-Technica ATM510 employs a rear-earth magnet for improved output and transient response.
Rugged, All-Metal Design: The microphone is enclosed in a rugged housing. It features super-durable construction for long-lasting, trouble-free performance.
Multi-Stage Windscreen: The microphone's multi-stage windscreen effectively controls popping, distortion from sibilant sounds and wind noise. Take care to keep foreign particles from entering the windscreen. An accumulation of iron or steel filings on the diaphragm, and/or foreign material in the windscreen's mesh surface, can degrade performance.
XLRM-Type Connector: The output of the microphone is a corrosion-resistant, gold-plated XLRM-type connector(3-Pin).
Mounting Options: The Audio-Technica ATM510 includes a Quiet-Flex stand clamp that provides silent, flexible microphone positioning.
Placement: When using the microphone in settings with a stage monitor speaker, the speaker should be located 180° off axis (at the rear of the microphone). This placement, in conjunction with the microphone's uniform cardioid pickup pattern, will virtually eliminate the possibility of undesired audio feedback.
