    Audio-Technica U873R reviews

    U873R Handheld Microphone is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 4.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from WOW! I purchased this mic on the advice of a Hollywood sound guy.I told him the Schoeps CM41 was waay out of my budget.So he suggested this gem as he called it. I got it yesterday and tried it out in my living room which has an 8 foot ceiling and the room is at 10x20.I filmed a short test clip and uploaded into Adobe Premiere and played it back and I said WOW!! lol. Trust me if you don't have the budget for the Schoeps you will not be dissappointed by a longshot for this mic.There was no echo in the dialogue.Even when a person tilt their head down or turn their head left or right it still picks up. This mic for this price has a nice punch to it. It kind of sounds like the Sennheiser MKH50.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I've been looking for this all my life We have used several microphones especially the shure mics, but nothing comppares to this from all that I have used. I thought i saw something like it on American Idol.I don't think there is anything not so great about it so far.It looks small toy like but don't let the size or look fool you, this is the real deal.This product is used in my church and it almost sound as good as the wireless handheld mic's i've used.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Microphone perfect for video recording We got this microphone for recording videos at our church. This mic is so sensitive compared to the other stage mics that we used it is just amazing. Professional level audio is what we were looking for and that is what we are getting. All of the mics for our video productions are Audio-Techinca. They work great.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does its job We use it on a boom to record couple interaction in psychometrics experiments, about a foot above the subjects. It works quite well and is robust. So far no cons.
