The units' respective polar patterns both reduce the pickup of sounds from the sides and rear, improving isolation of the desired sound source. The ATM510 is designed specifically for close-up vocal use in professional live-sound applications, and the ATM610a is intended for both lead and backup vocal use and is especially effective on loud stages.
Delivering durable performance for professional applications, both microphones feature a rugged, all-metal design and construction for years of trouble-free use; a newly designed superior internal shock mounting, which reduces handling and stage noise; Hi-ENERGY® neodymium magnets for articulate vocal reproduction; a multi-stage grille design, offering excellent protection against plosives and sibilance without compromising high-frequency clarity; Quiet-Flex™ stand clamp for silent, flexible microphone positioning; and corrosion-resistant contacts from the gold-plated XLRM-type connector.
