Overview

Offering outstanding Audio-Technica sound for surface-mount applications, the U851A UniPoint Boundary Microphone features a PivotPoint rotating output connector, UniSteep filter and UniGuard RFI-shielding technology. This battery or phantom powered condenser microphone accepts interchangeable condenser elements--available for boundary microphones in cardioid, hypercardioid and omnidirectional polar patterns. Its heavy die-cast case and silicon foam bottom pads minimize coupling of surface vibration to the microphone. With superior off-axis rejection and maximum gain-before-feedback, this professional flat microphone sets audio-quality standards in challenging acoustic environments.

Features
  • Designed for surface-mount applications such as high-quality sound reinforcement, professional recording, television, conferencing and other demanding sound pickup situations
  • PivotPoint rotating output connector allows cable to exit from either the rearor the bottom of the microphone
  • Superior off-axis rejection for maximum gain before feedback
  • UniGuard RFI-shielding technology offers outstanding rejection of radio frequency interference (RFI)
  • UniSteep filter provides a steep low-frequency attenuation to improve sound pickup without affecting voice quality
  • Small-diameter UniPoint capsule near boundary eliminates phase distortion and delivers clear, high-output performance
  • Heavy die-cast case and non-slip silicon foam bottom pads minimize coupling of surface vibration to the microphone
  • Low-profile design with low-reflectance black finish for minimum visibility
  • Operates on battery or phantom power

My new GO TO mic

By 

from Orange, Ca

Comments about Audio-Technica U851A UniPoint Cardioid Condenser Boundary Microphone:

I use to use 2 shotgun mics set in an X pattern to shoot corperate speakers or stage performers but with this mic the noise floor and rejection of feed back is so much better. As delivered the polar patern is a quarter of a globe. Anything below or behind the cable end is omited but any sound infront of or above is piced up clearly. works great as a podium mic also. It's not a mic that peaple will pick up and use as an MC mic so it gets left alone. The long cable between the mic and power box makes it nice to get to the battery or roll off switch durring the long performances.
