Designed for use as a quality talk-back microphone in entertainment, commercial and industrial applications, the Audio Technica AT808G features a versatile gooseneck design that allows for unlimited positioning and dependable performance. Its custom-tailored frequency response ensures excellent intelligibility in environments with excessive ambient noise. The mic's subcardioid polar pattern reduces pickup of sounds from the sides and rear, improving isolation of desired sound source. The AT808G stands 412.7 mm (16.20") from the table or podium. An XLRM-type connector insert at the base allows the microphone to be plugged directly into an XLRF-type panel jack or microphone cable. The microphone is enclosed in a rugged housing with a low reflectance black finish.
