Overview

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.

Audio-Technica U857Ql Quick Mount Mic-Cardioid

By Paul C.

from Creswell, Oregon

Purchased this mic for the church to replace our old A.T. pulpit mic. What a great, great improvement! Much longer, getting closer to the speaker. Very good reception range. Very good vocal frequency range and clarity. User friendly for adjustments to gain and volume. You can begin to hear it feedback and adjust before screaming at the audiance. The isolation mount works wonderfully, no more podium thumping thru the mic. The XLR connection is much better than a converter. I'm impressed and would buy another.
