X/Y Stereo Condenser Stereo Microphone

The AT822 was a battery-powered XY-stereo microphone intended for field recording and broadcast use.


The microphone is equipped with unbalanced outputs for use with readily available audio and video equipment… The mic offers excellent channel separation and switchable low-frequency roll-off.

  • Compact, lightweight design is perfect for camera-mount use
  • Closely-matched elements provide the spatial impact and realism of a live sound field
  • Includes a 1.7' (0.5 m) cable (XLRF-type to stereo 3.5 mm mini-plug); and a 10' (3 m) cable (XLRF-type to two mono 3.5 mm mini-plugs)
  • Battery operation only

Warning: The AT822 is designed for battery operation only. Do not attempt to use when phantom power is present. Possible damage to the microphone may result.
