  • Overview


    The new Engineered Sound®. Contractor-exclusive innovations for every acoustical challenge. And safe haven from RFI.

    Equipped with Audio-Technica’s legendary electro-acoustic design innovations, the ES915SML18 is a wide-range miniature condenser microphone, 18" long, with a MicroLine polar pattern and a mute switch/LED. This small-diameter gooseneck microphone provides highly flexible positioning while maintaining a well-contoured appearance. The microphone offers unsurpassed immunity from radio frequency interference thanks to UniGuard® innovations. The ES915SML18 also offers an 80 Hz low-cut UniSteep® filter that reduces pickup of low-frequency ambient noise. A mute switch in the base lights when the mic is “on.” The microphone’s low-profile element provides a uniform MicroLine® polar pattern with narrow 90º acceptance angle. The microphone can be mounted on a podium or desktop with the included AT8474 low-profile isolation mount, which attenuates noise, shock and vibration transmitted through the mounting surface.
