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.
