Cardioid Condenser Adapter-mount Gooseneck Microphone
Share

Details

Engineered for versatile positioning and extremely flexible performance in boardroom, school, government, house-of-worship and other installed applications, the U857AL features a small-diameter gooseneck with virtually no “memory.” Its ultra-flexible, robust design permits easy adjustment into desired shape while resisting inadvertent repositioning. This cardioid condenser gooseneck microphone direct mounts to any 5/8"-27 stand; it is 16.58" long. Equipped with UniGuard® innovations that offer unsurpassed immunity from radio frequency interference, the U857AL accepts interchangeable elements, available in cardioid, hypercardioid, omnidirectional and UniLine™ line cardioid polar patterns. The battery- or phantom-powered microphone also offers an 80 Hz low-cut UniSteep® filter that reduces pickup of low-frequency ambient noise.

 

    • Designed for high-quality sound reinforcement, professional recording and broadcasting

 

    • 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, alternating gooseneck with virtually no “memory” permits quick positioning into desired shape

 

    • UniSteep® filter provides a steep low-frequency attenuation to improve sound pickup without affecting voice quality

 

    • Accepts interchangeable elements to permit angle of acceptance from 90° to 360°

 

    • Two-stage foam windscreen yields dramatically improved resistance to P-pops and other breath blasts

 

    • Direct mounts to any 5/8"-27 stand, or to included threaded mounting flange

 

    • Operates on battery or phantom power
