With a compact footprint, the AC-44 Tap is an ideal solution for applications requiring high-quality sound capture, including web conferencing, telemedicine, huddle spaces, classrooms, and more. Offering crystal clear speech intelligibility, the AC-44 Tap removes the barriers that unclear audio creates.

A capacitive touch-powered mute switch gives users complete control of the microphone pickup. The AC-44 Tap features an LED indicator that illuminates blue for active or red when muted, making microphone control a clear and transparent process for all.  The mute state is only toggled with a human finger, preventing accidental muting from various items on the work surface.

Wide Sound Coverage

The AC-44 Tap uses MXL’s signature 3-capsule boundary design to enhance direct sounds while mitigating noise and echoes within your workspace. The microphone’s wide 180-degree cardioid pickup pattern provides excellent coverage – focusing on sound sources in front of the microphone and eliminating unwanted noise from the back. The AC-44 Tap has the flexibility to work in a single-user workspace, a medium huddle space, and even classrooms and medical facilities.

Plug and Play

Powered by a simple USB-C connection, the AC-44 Tap offers plug and play functionality – no drivers or installers are needed. Connect the mic and set it as your audio input device.
