The Audio-Technica U857Q is a flexible gooseneck microphone designed for outstanding performance in schools, houses-of-worship, boardrooms, government facilities, etc. The microphone capsule features a cardioid polar pattern for superb rejection of off-axis noise and ambiance.
The wide, linear frequency response delivers smooth, accurate reproduction of speech without noise, artefacts or colourisation. The ultra flexible gooseneck enables flexible positioning while resisting inadvertent repositioning. Optional interchangeable capsules provide cardioid, hyper-cardioid, omni-directional and UniLine cardioid polar patterns for added flexibility.
UniGuard shielding provides exceptional rejection of radio-frequency interference.
Low frequency noise and proximity effect is reduced as a result of UniSteep filtering.
Cardioid, hyper-cardioid and omni-directional capsules are available as options and provide added flexibility.
