Audio Technica ATR-3350 Review in Windy Weather
Audio Technica ATR-3350 Review in Windy Weather

Audio Technica ATR-3350 connected directly to a Zoom H4n. I needed a affordable lavaliere microphone for some upcoming projects and this one seemed to fit the bill just nicely.

It was very windy out, so it was the perfect day to test the ATR3350 vs the H4n built-in microphones. I am also using a Redhead Windscreen on the H4n. The Zoom H4n was set to Mono mix for both the ATR3350 microphone and the H4n onboard microphones.

✏ Extremely affordable (~$20 – Amazon: Audio-Technica ATR-3350 Lavalier Omnidirectional Condenser Microphone)
✏ Small microphone (about the size of an eraser)
✏ Long 20 foot cord (could be a con as well)
✏ Solid construction
✏ Comes with 3.5mm to 1/4″ adapter

✏ Power pack with switch has a very stiff clip – will only clip onto somewhat thin clothing or belt
✏ Loooong cable
✏ Not a high-end lavalier microphone

☞ Overall: The Audio Technica ATR3350 is a fantastic microphone for under $20 and works extremely well. Best used to replace shotgun microphones in interview situations.

Hi, Michael. Excellent demo video.

I want to use 2 of the ATR3350 mics in an interview situation, one for me and the other for the person I am interviewing. If I plug each mic into a y-adapter such as this one , and then plug the male end of the adapter into my Canon T4i, do you think it would work? Is there a problem with plugging the mono connector from each mic into the stereo connectors on the adapter?

I’m trying to come up with a simple & inexpensive way to use 2 lavalier mics for interviews. Most of the wireless lavalier systems are quite pricey.

What do you think?
