Audio-Technica AE4100
*Microphones are very subjective. Some microphones that work for some brilliantly may be disastrous on others. It is therefore important to understand the context in which this review is written and take it with a grain of salt, like all reviews on microphones should be treated.*

The AE4100 is a cardioid dynamic microphone which has a sound I can only describe as "sizzle." It feels, looks, and most of all, SOUNDS absolutely hot! Audio-Technica says this microphone has a frequency response from 90-18,000Hz, and what I hear confirms that. The microphone, once again, has an unbelievable hotness to its sound. It feels like when you sing into it, the sound rushes out of the speakers, as if it just couldn't wait. This hyperactive vibe is further complimented by an unexpected fullness and smoothness that one would certainly not expect after reading my description of the microphone being "hot."

The microphone also is excessively comfortable to sing into; while it rejects outside sources very well due to its tight pickup pattern, it seems to still find your voice wherever you are around the microphone. That's not to say it's magic; you do have to have some degree of microphone technique, as with every microphone, but the AE4100 seems to be simultaneously forgiving, and flattering.

They also seem to be completely impervious to popping.

I am blown away by this microphone.

OVERALL OPINION

The AE4100 is expensive, but when you consider all of the competition it, in my opinion, absolutely obliterates, the AE4100 is the queen of my stage dynamic heart. I don't do personal live shows yet. I only do studio work, and I don't do individual live shows yet (only groups), so I own cheaper stage dynamics simply because I can afford them. However, if I come into money, or end up doing more live shows on my own, I may have to invest in a quality stage microphone. This is up there on that list.

OVERALL OPINION

I use this mic intensively "live" since August First 2014.Tout while I sonorisais a punk festival / a toronto hardcore group (Silverstein) changes all the vocal mics without my knowledge and puts this famous AE4100. Line-check gooooo and the show starts and the first words / scream singer smack !!! but that it happens to you ??? After three songs the mix I placed façade makes me well aware that the microphones were not those of the festival (sm58) .The presence of this microphone is quite amazing, no capricious as to feedback (AKG D5, E935, B58a) brief like this road before with the voice !! since me and the AE4100 we are boyfriend or rather partenaire.Je sticks to any kind of voice without ever having a bad surprise.Je believe that we are now a team !! one small default I noticed is its sound insulation manipulation but all rule with a low cut 100Hz.Pour plosives and sssssiflantes everything is well balanced with a frequency response well adapted for concerts.En studio I test soon with a metal voice I will edit a time and place !! I recommend this mic handily for both the soft and subtle music rock strong and energetic !! good test MA
