  • Overview


    The ES961 and ES961W have been updated. Click here for more information on the newest models.

    The white-finished ES961W is designed for surface-mount applications needing unidirectional sound reinforcement with high signal-to-noise ratio and elimination of phase distortion due to reflections. It features a recessed switch that permits low-end roll-off for reduction of low-frequency ambient background noise, and heavy-duty construction for minimal pickup of surface vibration. The microphone is also available in black (ES961), and with a TRS phone plug that permits easy mounting and removal (ES961P).
