    Featuring Audio-Technica’s UniLine line-cardioid element, the U853PMU condenser hanging microphone comes equipped with a wall/ceiling plate power module for permanent installation in a standard, single-gang electrical box. The phantom-powered microphone also offers UniGuard innovations that deliver unsurpassed immunity from radio frequency interference. It accepts interchangeable elements, available in cardioid, hypercardioid, omnidirectional and UniLine line cardioid polar patterns. Its 80 Hz low-cut UniSteep filter reduces pickup of low-frequency ambient noise.
