The Audio-Technica AT2022 is a condenser microphone designed for stereo recording. Two unidirectional condenser capsules in an X/Y configuration pivot to allow for 90° (narrow) or 120° (wide) stereo operation for extremely versatile pickup. The capsules also fold flat for storage and transportation. It is designed for general stereo recording and field sound capture. The microphone requires a 1.5V AA battery for operation. The microphone includes a 1.6ft cable terminating in a 3-pin XLRF- type connector and a 3.5mm TRS connector. The output of the microphone is a 3-pin XLRM-type connector. A switch permits choice of off, on/flat response or on/low-roll-off (via integral high-pass filter) to help control undesired ambient noise. The microphone is enclosed in a rugged housing. The included AT8405a stand clamp permits mounting on any microphone stand with 5/8"-27 threads. A fuzzy windscreen, a battery and a soft protective pouch are also included.
