    Audio-Technica U857 reviews

    U857QU Gooseneck Microphone is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 2.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great microphone This is a great microphone. I use it in churches in which I project the sound system. It was the best choice for the altar and pulpits. Very good rejection against feedback, balanced timbre, good isolation against handling noise, good mechanical ruggedness.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Much better than AT857 We just replaced our 2004 model AT 857 with this new one. The sound is crisper and less prone to feedback. Good value. Used in a church pulpit.
