OVERVIEW

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.

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 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.
