Comments about Audio-Technica U857QL Cardioid Condenser Quick-Mount Gooseneck Microphone:
Have been replacing older mics with this one and the results are superior. The low cut off filter does get rid of some room rumble, turn them on if you have that issue.
Some are used on bases and have equally good results.
Very happy with audio quality and ease of use.

Q:We have an older AT857QMLa mic. Are there any interchangeable elements available to fit this mic? Is there any way to tell which element we currently have? The element that we have used for years was recently replaced with a "spare" that we had, but it is obviously not the same element & had an adverse affect on the sound & the original element was thrown away.
Q:I would like to know whether this type of microphone be attached or connected to a mic-stand?
Q:Can you plug in a U857QL mic into a Shure MX 412 or MX418 base with no problem? Is the connector mount the same size as the Shure? I'm interested in replacing mics and would like to use the bases that I have.
Q:Do you have foam covers for U857QL type of microphones, I'm looking to order 16 of them, as we have these type of microphones in our City Council Chambers.
A:The windscreen is the AT8153 and available through an Authorized Audio-Technica Dealer.
Q:Yea I just purchased a u857q to replace our church's at857qmla at stopped working and the new mic won't work. The wiring all tests good. Did I get the wrong mic to replace the old one?
Q:Where can we purchase the foam windscreen for the U857QL, and what is the part number? We are in the Vancouver, Canada area. Thank you.
A:The windscreen for the U857QL is the AT8153. The white version of this windscreen is the AT8143WH. The AT8160 will also work.

Q:regarding the older 857 QMa
A:Thank you for your inquiry. These can be sent in to our service department and the flex pipe replaced. The cost is around $70 per microphone. Please note that these are very old microphones, so our supply of replacement parts is limited. At last count we did not have enough parts for all 75 of your microphones. If you would like to proceed, please contact our wired product service department at 330-686-2600 ext. 5003.
Q:Does the U857QL mic need a specific mount?
A:Thank you for your inquiry. A through the table shock mount is included, although we have several desk stands that will work as well, such as the AT8666
Q:DIFFERNCE BETWEEN 857QL AND 859QL
A:Thank you for your inquiry. The U859QL does not contain the Uniguard technology that filters out RF interfernece from mobile phones and AM radio stations. The U897QL does.
