    The Audio Technica AT898 is a subminiature clip-on/lavalier condenser microphone with a cardioid polar pattern. It is designed to provide accurate reproduction for vocalists, lecturers, stage and television talent, and houses of worship. The microphone is intended to be worn on the clothing or hidden in props for excellent yet unobtrusive sound pickup. The wide-range capability of the microphone ensures clean, accurate reproduction with high intelligibility for speakers, presenters and other performers. Its small size makes it ideal for use in applications where minimum visibility is required. The microphone requires 11V to 52V phantom power or a1.5V AA battery for operation. A battery need not be in place for phantom power operation. The microphone's cardioid polar pattern provides a 120° angle of acceptance. The microphone includes a 3 m (9.8') permanently attached miniature cable. Its free end connects to the provided AT8537 power module via TA3F-type connector. The output of the power module is a 3-pin XLRM type connector. A recessed switch in the power module permits choice of flat response or low-frequency roll-off (via integral 80 Hz high-pass filter) to help control undesired ambient noise. The microphone comes equipped with a power module, a cable clip, a clothing clip base, a viper clip base, a magnet clip base and plate with lanyard, three single mic holders, two double mic holders, two windscreens and a battery. A protective carrying case is also included. The microphone has a low-reflectance black finish.
