  • Overview


    Two microphones in one—perfect for applications requiring separate miking for PA and broadcast. The ES995 offers excellent sonic character, simple operation and streamlined appearance. One element is typically used to provide sound reinforcement while the other feeds clean audio to a broadcast network, media pool or logging recorder with no electrical interaction between the elements. The two elements can also feed audio to two separate installed systems in a church or school. The circuit grounds for each channel are completely isolated, greatly reducing the potential for hum. Each element is individually shock-mounted. Robust table-mounted microphone is ideal for courtrooms, boardrooms, government chambers, schools and churches. Rigid-pipe design has ball-in-socket mounted to heavy, portable tabletop base. Integral dual power module; requires 11-52V DC phantom power. Optically coupled, lighted remote mute switch has three modes (push-to-mute, toggle, and push-to-talk). Interchangeable elements are available for omnidirectional and hypercardioid patterns. 19.51” long.
