AUDIO TECHNICA HANGING MICROPHONES
Designed for suspension over choirs, instrumental groups and theatre stages, these condenser designs have steel-wire hangers, which attach to the cable, when suspended from above, and position the microphone head away from the vertical. All have a high maximum sound level capability, useful if directly above an orchestra.
The ES954 hanging microphone is a quad-capsule, steerable microphone that has been designed for huddle rooms or conference rooms whereby capture of audio over a range up to 360-degrees is required. Designed to be used with the Audio Technica ATDM-0604 digital smartmixer the ES954 can, its most basic of setup scenarios, be configured to provide coverage to up to four points and automatically switch using gates to ‘follow’ a speaker. A more intensive setup could involve using the control of each capsule’s virtual cardioid or hypercardioid polar pattern, steered in 30-degree increments, or tilted for seated/standing speakers. A 360-degree LED ring around the rim of the microphone gives clear indication of the array’s mute status in red or green.
A fixed 1.2m cable can be connected to the included AT8554 Plenum-rated ceiling mount via push-type wire terminals for a more timely installation. Two RJ45 sockets on AT8554 allow compatible RJ45 terminated cables to be linked between the box and the included breakout cables.

This cardioid condenser hanging microphone has a 120-degree acceptance angle and has been designed for use over choirs, instrumental groups and theatre applications. Radio frequency interference (RFI) is kept to a minimum due to the integrated ‘UniGuard RFI-shielding technology used’. A 15.2 metre cable is permanently fixed to the microphone head and terminated with TA3F connector suitable for use with the ATND8734A microphone base Dante power module. Microphone requires a power module which is not included.

Also available in white: ES933WML/MIC
Included accessories: AT8138 foam windscreen, AT8452 steel hanger.
With robust construction and unobtrusive appearance, this is a wide-range condenser microphone with a cardioid (unidirectional) polar pattern. It was designed for high-quality sound reinforcement and other demanding sound pickup applications. A 7.6 metre length of 2.6mm diameter cable is permanently attached to the microphone head, terminated with a 3-pin male XLR connector. Available in black or white. The output is low impedance, balanced. Requires 9V to 52V DC phantom power.
Maximum input: 134dB SPL. Response: 70Hz-16kHz. Sensitivity: 14.1mV/Pa. Impedance: 100ohms, balanced. Dimensions: 57mm head length; 12mm head diameter.
Also available in white: PRO45W
Included accessories: Foam windscreen, steel hanger
Optional accessories: AT8146 windshield, AT8146WH windshield
This is also a cardioid, condenser design, but with a wider frequency response, it is also suitable for recording work, as well as sound reinforcement. A 7.6 metre cable, 3.2mm in diameter, is attached permanently to the microphone. This terminates with a miniature XLR connector which connects to the included AT8531 power module, which has a switch to introduce a low-frequency roll-off, 80Hz, 18dB/octave, to reduce unwanted low-frequency sounds without affecting voice quality. The module has an XLR3-M balanced output connector and operates with a 1.5V AA battery (1200 hours, alkaline) or 11-52V phantom power. The capsule is interchangeable; hypercardioid, omnidirectional and UniLine line cardioid polar patterns are available - contact Sales. Available in black or white.
Maximum input: 133dB SPL. Response: 30Hz-20kHz, sensitivity 7.9mV/Pa. Impedance: 200ohms, balanced. Dimensions: 34mm head length; 12.2mm head diameter.
Also available in white: U853AW
Included accessories: AT8153 two-stage foam windscreen, AT8451 steel hanger, AT8531 power module, AT8438 5/8 inch stand adapter, battery.
The ATND8734a is a power module with the Dante network and switching functionality of the ATND971a.
