Product Description

The U857Q is a wide-range condenser microphone with a cardioid polar pattern. It is designed for quality sound reinforcement, professional recording, television and other demanding sound pickup applications. The small-diameter double gooseneck design permits highly flexible positioning while maintaining a smooth, well-contoured appearance. The U857Q stands 365.0 mm (14.37") from the table or podium; it is also available in a 481.0 mm (18.94") version as U857QL. The two models are identical in all other respects.

The microphone requires 11V to 52V phantom power for operation. The microphone is equipped with UniGuard RFI-shielding technology, which offers outstanding rejection of radio frequency interference (RFI). The microphone's cardioid polar pattern provides a 120° angle of acceptance. Additional interchangeable elements with omnidirectional (360°), hypercardioid (100°) and UniLine (90°) pickup patterns are available.

An XLRM-type connector insert at the base allows the microphone to be plugged directly into an XLRF-type panel jack or microphone cable. A recessed switch permits choice of flat response or low-frequency roll-off (via integral 80 Hz high-pass UniSteep filter) to help control undesired ambient noise. The microphone comes equipped with a two-stage foam windscreen and a shock mount designed to attenuate noise, shock and vibration transmitted through the mounting surface. The microphone is enclosed in a rugged housing with a low-reflectance Black finish.

Features
