    Audio-Technica's U853RW is a hanging condenser microphone that is designed for overhead miking applications such as church choirs, instrumental groups, or theater stages. It's low-profile, unobtrusive appearance means that it will easily blend in with its surroundings, so you don't have to worry about it getting in the way or causing a distraction. The U853RW features a cardioid polar pattern with a smooth and natural-sounding on-axis response, while also offering superior off-axis rejection to prevent unwanted noise from degrading its sound quality.

    This microphone comes equipped with Audio-Technica's UniSteep® filter, which provides a steep filter that rolls off low-frequency content to improve voice intelligibility without affecting voice quality. No worries of muddy audio quality when using the U853RW. Simply flip on the UniSteep filter and you're set to go. It also features Audio-Technica's UniGuard® radio frequency interference (RFI) shielding technology to prevent interference noise from wireless devices such as smartphones and tablets from creating any undue problems with your audio signal. Take advantage of this excellent and cost-effective microphone for all your overhead miking needs, and get the best possible sound for any scenario!

    Note: Works with interchangeable elements to permit angle of acceptance from 90° to 360° (elements sold separately)
