Hypercardioid Condenser Gooseneck Microphone

  • Designed for high-quality sound reinforcement and other demanding soundpickup situations.
  • Hypercardioid polar pattern reduces pickup of sounds from the sides and rear, improving isolation of desired sound source.
  • Small diameter gooseneck is very easy to manipulate for proper positioning. It isheavily lubricated to offer very smooth and quiet operation.
  • The integral power module can be powered from any external 11V to 52V phantompower supply.
  • Self-contained unit ready to plug into a mating XLRF-type panel jack or cable connector.
  • Sanp-on foam windscreen simply slips over the head of the microphone, effectively reducing wind noise or ‘popping’ when used extra-close.
  • Optional shock mount attenuates noise, vibration and shock transmitted through the mounting surface.

    The AT850/H is enclosed in a rugged housing with a lowreflectance black finish. It features an XLRM-type connector
    insert at its base, allowing it to be plugged directly into an XLRFtype panel jack or microphone cable.

    The AT850/H stands 429 mm from the table or podium. The model output is low impedance balanced. The output connector mates with XLRF-type cable connectors. The balanced signal appears across Pins 2 and 3, while the ground (shield) connection is Pin 1. Output is phased so that positive acoustic pressure produces positive voltage at Pin 2, in accordance with industry convention.

    The microphone is equipped with UniGuard® RFI-shielding technology, which offers outstanding rejection of radio frequency interference (RFI). The microphone is RoHS compliant – free from all substances specified in the EU directive on hazardous substances.

    The high sensitivity of the AT850/H ensures useful output and an excellent match to most mixer, type recorder and amplifier inputs. It will provide undistorted output even in sound fields as loud as 129 dB SPL. However, due to the high sensitivity, in some instances it may be possible to overload sensitive input stages.
