New Gooseneck Mic


Audio-Technica has unveiled the new U855QL Cardioid Dynamic Gooseneck Microphone. Here's what they have to say about it...
Designed for use as a high-quality talk-back, paging and dispatch microphone in commercial, industrial and entertainment applications, the U855QL features a versatile gooseneck design that allows for flexible positioning and dependable performance. Its tailored frequency response ensures excellent intelligibility in environments with excessive ambient noise.
The U855QL's easily adjustable gooseneck permits quick positioning, and the quick-mount design includes an XLRM-type connector insert at the base, allowing the microphone to be plugged directly into an any standard XLRF-type surface or cable connector. The unit features extremely rugged all-metal construction for long-lasting performance. The low-profile element provides a uniform cardioid polar pattern that reduces pickup of sounds from the sides and rear, improving isolation of the desired sound source. The microphone's protective screen reduces wind noise and "popping" when used close to the sound source.U855QL Specifications:
  • Frequency Response: 150-16,000 Hz
  • Open Circuit Sensitivity: -53 dB (2.2 mV) re 1V at 1 Pa

  • Dimensions: 17.64" (448.0 mm) L, 1.18" (30 mm) head diameter, 0.75" (19 mm) base diameter
  • Output Connector: Integral 3-pin XLRM-type
  • Color/Appearance: Non-reflective black finish
