Overview

Designed for high-quality sound reinforcement, professional recording and broadcasting.

Designed to plug directly in to a panel or desk-mounted XLRF-type connector, the Audio-Technica U859QL features an ultra-flexible small-diameter gooseneck and accepts interchangeable elements, available in cardioid, hypercardioid, omnidirectional, and UniLine line cardioid polar patterns (available optionally). 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. The microphone and gooseneck are 18.90" long.
