Audio Technica AT8022 X/Y Stereo Microphone

Innovative coincident capsule configuration

Ideal for video camera-mount use, stereo field recording, interviews and home recording, Audio-Technica's versatile AT8022 stereo condenser offers a compact housing and the pristine sound quality of a live sound field. Its coincident capsule configuration produces an X/Y stereo image in a small housing. The microphone is supplied with two cables for use with either pro or consumer gear. It offers switchable low-frequency roll-off and the convenience of battery or phantom power.

In symmetrical mode the Y-shaped cable has two XLR connectors that allow for phantom powering the microphone. In asymmetrical mode, it requires the use of an AA battery and a 3.5mm mini-jack output connector.

The AT8022 is thus the most professional broadcast microphone for use on camera, digital recorder or DSLR.


  • Unique innovative capsule configuration produces accurate stereo image in smaller housing
  • Stereo 120 ° opening angle
  • "Double Diaphragm Wave" Capsule structure
  • Very low noise level
  • Highly versatile, the AT8022 can be used in the studio or on location
  • Its compact, lightweight design is perfect for video camera-mount use as well as for stereo field recording, interviews and home recording
  • Switchable low-frequency roll-off 80 Hz with a slope of 18 dB / octave
  • Reproduces a very natural stereo image
  • Operates on battery or phantom power - for use with pro or consumer equipment
  • Includes two cables: one balanced (two 3-pin XLRM-type connectors at output); one unbalanced (3.5 mm TRS at output)

“Parallel coincident capsules”

The AT8022 is equipped with two 21mm diameter capsules mounted in a 180° parallel back-to-back configuration. This proprietary stereo principle developed by Audio-Technica offers a fairly wide stereo angle (instead of two capsules at 90°) which saves space.

“Double wave diaphragm”

The AT8022's diaphrahms are doubly embossed: a hexagonal shape and a relief print. By using this manufacturing principle patented by Audio-Technica, the stability of the membrane is thereby increased, and unwanted noise is kept at bay.

“ROBUST all metal Construction”

Robust, all metal construction, ideal for use in professional broadcast environments.
