OVERVIEW

Designed for pro-level sound reinforcement, recording, and broadcasting.

The 18.94" version of the U857Q, the U857QL cardioid condenser quick-mount gooseneck microphone is designed to plug directly into a panel- or desk-mounted XLRF-type connector. The microphone offers unsurpassed immunity from radio frequency interference thanks to UniGuard innovations. It features an ultra-flexible small-diameter gooseneck and accepts interchangeable elements, available in cardioid, hypercardioid, omnidirectional, and UniLine line cardioid polar patterns. Equipped with self-contained electronics, the phantom powered microphone also offers an 80Hz low-cut UniSteep filter that reduces pickup of low-frequency ambient noise.

FEATURES
  • Superior off-axis rejection for maximum gain-before-feedback
  • UniGuard RFI-shielding technology offers outstanding rejection of radio frequency interference (RFI)
  • Easy-to-adjust, rugged, small-diameter, alternating gooseneck with virtually no "memory" permits quick positioning into desired shape
  • UniSteep filter provides a steep low-frequency attenuation to improve sound pickup without affecting voice quality
  • Self-contained electronics eliminate need for external power module
  • Accepts interchangeable elements to permit angle of acceptance from 90 degrees to 360 degrees
  • Two-stage foam windscreen yields dramatically improved resistance to plosive noises
  • Quick-mount design with 3-pin XLRM-type connector insert at base plugs into any standard XLRF-type surface or cable connector
  • Included shock mount attenuates noise, shock, and vibration transmitted through the mounting surface

An excellent and convenient microphone. Order today.

      Comments about Audio-Technica U857QL Cardioid Condenser Quick-Mount Gooseneck Microphone:

      Have been replacing older mics with this one and the results are superior. The low cut off filter does get rid of some room rumble, turn them on if you have that issue.
      Some are used on bases and have equally good results.
      Very happy with audio quality and ease of use.
