Q:We have 2 U857Q gooseneck mikes and they both stopped working at the same time in our sanctuary. We have tested everything sound board is good, another mike works so we figure it in the U857Q mike. What is causing this and is there any thing we can do on our end?
Q:Where can I get our AT857QM serviced? It is cutting in and out while people are speaking into it. Very distracting for church services.
A:You may send the product in for an evaluation through an Audio-Technica Service Center.
Q:Which model has a mute switch?
A:Please contact our Audio Solutions Department at (330) 686-2600 ext 5000 or at firstname.lastname@example.org for assistance with this.
Q:U857Q - Battary
A:The U857Q will NOT accept a battery. It features an XLR barrel connection for "Quick" mounting (Q). I double-checked the information on our web page, and we do not mention the use of a battery.
A:The U857Q Series of Gooseneck Microphones are phantom powerable only. The U857A Series can be either phantom or battery powered. The U857A Series microphones use an inline power module, the AT8531, which accepts a single AA 1.5V battery to power the microphone when phantom power is not available.
Q:where can I buy one of these?
A:Thank you for your inquiry. These are available at any Audio-Technica authorized dealer both on line or an actual store. Please use the dealer locator on our home page at www.audio-technica.com to find a store in your area.
