Designed for high-quality sound reinforcement, professional recording and broadcasting
The phantom-powered U857Q is designed to plug directly into a panel or desk-mounted XLRF-type connector. 14.37" long. It features a small-diameter gooseneck that adjusts easily to any position. It is a cardioid condenser microphone and offers unsurpassed immunity from radio frequency interference thanks to Audio-Technica's UniGuard technology. Self-contained electronics, phantom-power, plus an 80Hz low-cut UniSteep filter to reduce pickup of low-frequency ambient noise make it easy to use. It also accepts interchangeable elements, available optionally in cardioid, hypercardioid, omni, and UniLine line cardioid polar patterns.
- 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 gooseneck for quick positioning
- UniSteep filter improves sound pickup without affecting voice quality
- Self-contained electronics eliminate need for external power module
- Accepts interchangeable polar-pattern elements (cardioid and omni)
- 2-stage foam windscreen yields dramatically improved resistance to P-pops and other breath blasts
- 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
If you need a really good desk-mount mic, the U857Q is an excellent one. Order today.
