Terminated with locking 4-pin connector for A-T UniPak body-pack wireless transmitters the Audio Technica U857ALcW 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 U857AL stands 421.0 mm (16.58") from the table or podium. 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. The microphone includes a 3 m (9.8') permanently attached miniature cable. The microphone is enclosed in a rugged housing witha low-reflectance black finish.
The Audio Technica U857ALcW includes a 0.75 m (29.5") permanently attached miniature cable terminated with a locking 4-pin connector for use with Audio-Technica UniPak body-pack transmitters. No power module or battery is included (or required) with the U857ALcW. The U857ALcW dimensions, RFI-immunity, polar pattern, and included accessories are otherwise identical to those of the U857AL.
