ATM350 vs ATM350cW
Is the actual microphone element of the 350cW the same as the 350? What accounts for the difference in price?
Yes, they are the same element. The ATM350 is a wired microphone. The output connector is a standard balanced 3-pin XLR male type connector, and it is designed to be connected to a balanced XLR microphone input with phantom power on it.
The ATM350cW is the wireless version of the mic. The output connector is a 4-pin female Hirose type connector, and it is designed to be connected to our UniPak model bodypack transmitters. Power is supplied by the transmitter in the form of a low bias voltage.
The wired ATM350 uses an inline power module to convert phantom power to bias voltage, balance the output, and set the output impedance. The requirement of the power module adds to the cost of the ATM350 wired microphone.
