Audio-Technica U857 Overview

  • 1Description

The Audio-Technica U857QL is a flexible gooseneck microphone designed for outstanding performance in schools, houses-of-worship, boardrooms, government facilities, etc. The microphone capsule features a cardioid polar pattern for superb rejection of off-axis noise and ambiance.

The wide, linear frequency response delivers smooth, accurate reproduction of speech without noise, artifacts or colorization. The ultra flexible gooseneck enables flexible positioning while resisting inadvertent repositioning. Optional interchangeable capsules provide cardioid, hyper-cardioid, omni-directional and UniLine cardioid polar patterns for added flexibility.

UniGuard Shielding

UniSteep Filter
Low frequency noise and proximity effect is reduced as a result of UniSteep filtering.
Interchangeable Elements
Cardioid, hyper-cardioid and omni-directional capsules are available as options and provide added flexibility.

    question

    I notice a lot of details talking about a battery powered phantom source, but perhaps that this one is not the version that works with a battery? Does this have a battery phantom source, or is there another model that does? This is the only gooseneck that comes up under the battery powered search filter.
    Asked by: Reid L.
    We use this mic with a wireless mic base unit that is part of System10 from Audio-Technica. The mic base is the phantom p/s. The combination provides good and clear service for our needs. We use it as a podium mic.
