Ideal for conference centers, boardrooms, courtrooms, houses of worship, and other installed applications, the Audio-Technica U857Q is designed to plug directly into a panel- or desk-mounted XLRF-type connector. This cardioid condenser quick-mount gooseneck microphone offers unsurpassed immunity from radio frequency interference thanks to Audio-Technica’s UniGuard® innovations.
