Audio-Technica U857ALCW Cardioid Condenser Gooseneck Microphone -

Engineered for versatile positioning and extremely flexible performance in boardroom, school, government, house-of-worship and other installed applications, the U857ALCW features a small-diameter gooseneck with virtually no "memory". Its ultra-flexible, robust design permits easy adjustment into desired shape while resisting inadvertent repositioning. This cardioid condenser gooseneck microphone direct mounts to any 5/8"-27 stand; it is 16.58" long.
Equipped with UniGuard innovations that offer unsurpassed immunity from radio frequency interference, the U857ALCW accepts interchangeable elements, available from cardioid polar patterns. The battery- or phantom-powered microphone also offers an 80 Hz low-cut UniSteep filter that reduces pickup of low-frequency ambient noise.

  • Direct mounts to any 5/8"-27 stand, or to included threaded mounting flange
  • 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
  • Superior off-axis rejection for maximum gain before feedback
  • UniSteep filter provides a steep low-frequency attenuation to improve sound pickup without affecting voice quality
