      Audio-Technica U857Q Cardioid Condenser Quick-Mount Gooseneck Microphone (270498)
Availability:  


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
