For a great sound and professional look at any venue, choose this quick mount mic. Plug this mic directly into a panel- or desk-mounted XLRF-type connector.

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. Offering unsurpassed immunity from radio frequency interference thanks to Audio-Technica's UniGuard innovations, this quick-mount microphone features an ultra-flexible, small-diameter gooseneck and accepts interchangeable elements - omnidirectional (360 degrees), cardioid (120 degrees), hypercardioid (100 degrees), and UniLine (90 degrees) - available separately. 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.
