AE stands for Artist Elite, and that's exactly what the Audio Technica AE5400 vocal microphone is - an elite instrument for artists. Choosing a microphone for a vocalist is much like a guitarist choosing a guitar - the microphone takes what the musician does and makes it louder. In the same vein, each microphone has a different inherent "tone" or sound quality and it's important for vocalists to be matched up with the right microphone. Well, Audio-Technica's AE5400 is a rare breed that will match up beautifully with almost any type of vocalist - male or female, soft or loud - the AE5400 just simply sounds incredible.

The secret is in the element. The AE5400 is a true condenser microphone that owes much of its sound quality to the classic AT4050 studio condenser mic. For great sounding, accurate vocal replication just like you get in the studio - the Audio Technica AE5400.
