      The Audio Technica 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 rolloff (via integral 80 Hz high-pass UniSteep filter) to help control undesired ambient noise. The microphone comes equipped with a two-stage foam windscreen.

      Quick-mount design with 3-pin XLRM-type connector insert at base plugs into any standard XLRF-type surface or cable connector.
      Low-profile element provides uniform cardioid polar pattern with120 degree acceptance angle.
      Superior off-axis rejection for maximum gain before feedback.
      UniGuard RFI-shielding technology offers outstanding rejection of radio frequency interference (RFI).
      Easy-to-adjust, rugged, small-diameter, alternating gooseneck with virtually no "memory" permits quick positioning into desired shape.
      UniSteep filter provides a steep low-frequency attenuation to improve sound pickup without affecting voice quality.
      Available interchangeable elements permit angle of acceptance from 90° to 360°.
      Included shock mount attenuates noise, shock and vibration transmitted through the mounting surface.
