Audio-Technica (http://www.audio-technica.com) has introduced its
ATR1205 microphone (US$24.95) for consumers. It comes with four
microphone wraps that let users customize the look of their mic.
Named “Tribal,” “Boom,” “Jackson” and “Cutie,” each of the new wraps
fit around the microphone to transform the mic’s look. The ATR1205
microphone is engineered for vocal and instrument reproduction,
according to Crystal Griffith, Audio-Technica consumer marketing
It includes an on/off switch and features a cardioid (heart-shaped)
response pattern that rejects background noise. The ATR1205 has a
16.5-foot cable with a 3.5mm mini plug, and comes with a desk stand,
mic stand clamp and 1/4-inch plug adapter.
