Cardioid Condenser Quick-Mount Gooseneck Microphone
Ideal for conference centers, boardrooms, courtrooms, houses of worship, and other installed applications, the U857Q is designed to plug directly into a panel- or desk-mounted XLRF-type connector. This cardioid condenser quick-mount gooseneck microphone offers unsurpassed immunity from radio frequency interference thanks to Audio-Technica’s UniGuard® innovations. Equipped with self-contained electronics, the phantom-powered microphone also offers an 80 Hz low-cut UniSteep® filter that reduces pickup of low-frequency ambient noise.
Featuring an ultra-flexible small-diameter gooseneck and accepts interchangeable elements – available in cardioid, hypercardioid, omnidirectional and UniLine® line cardioid polar patterns.
