Audio-Technica expanded its line of lavalier microphones with the AT898 Subminiature Cardioid Condenser Microphone, which provides maximum intelligibility and clean, accurate reproduction for lecturers, stage and television talent, and houses of worship. The AT898 is 5mm in diameter, operates on battery or phantom power and includes a complete accessory kit.

The subminiature cardioid element is enclosed in a rugged, low-profile housing with internal construction to minimize noise from handling, clothing and wind. The microphone plugs into the included AT8537 power module, which features battery/phantom power operation, switchable low-frequency roll-off switch and an integral XLR3M connector supplying a low-impedance balanced output. The accessory kit includes three single and two double interchangeable mounts, clothing clip, viper clip, magnetic clip and two open-pore foam windscreens.

The AT898 comes with a carrying case that holds the microphone and accessories. Wireless and unterminated versions of the microphone are available for use with Audio-Technica and other wireless systems.

Pricing includes: AT898 (wired), $299; AT898c (unterminated), $179; AT898cW (terminated for A-T UniPak™ wireless transmitters with 4-pin HRS-type locking connector), $199; AT898cT5 (terminated for A-T U100 and Lectrosonics wireless with TA5F connector), $199; AT898cL4 (terminated for Sennheiser SK wireless with Lemo connector), $249; and AT898cT4 (terminated for Shure wireless with TA4F connector), $199.
