It is designed for quality sound reinforcement, professional recording, television and other demanding sound pickup applications. The microphone is equipped with UniGuard RFI-shielding technology, which offers outstanding rejection of radio frequency interference (RFI). The microphone's cardioid polar pattern provides a 120° angle of acceptance. Additional interchangeable elements with omnidirectional (360°), hypercardioid (100°) and MicroLine (90°) pickup patterns are available.
An XLRM-type connector insert at the base allows the microphone to be plugged directly into an XLRF-type panel jack or microphone cable.The microphone can be mounted on a podium or desktop with included AT8474 low-profile isolation mount. Designed to be mounted either above or beneath the mounting surface, the AT8474 firmly secures the microphone while providing maximum attenuation of noise, shock and vibration transmitted through the mounting surface.
An AT8473 stand clamp is also included to permit attaching the microphone to a standard 5/8"- 27 or 3/8"-16 threaded mic stand or mounting flange.
An integral 80 Hz high-pass UniSteep filter provides easy switching from a flat frequency response to a low-end roll-off. The roll-off position reduces the microphone's sensitivity to popping in close vocal use. It also reduces the pickup of low-frequency ambient noise (such as traffic, air-handling systems, etc.), room reverberation and mechanically coupled vibrations. To engage the UniSteep filter, use the end tip of a paperclip or other small pointed instrument to slide the switch toward the bent line.
