  • 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 ES915C18 is ideal for applications where quality sound and flexible performance are imperative. 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 ES915C18 also offers an 80 Hz low-cut UniSteep® filter that reduces pickup of low-frequency ambient noise. The microphone’s low-profile element provides a uniform cardioid polar pattern with 120º 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.

  • Q & A

    Does the audio mic 15c gooseneck mic have a mute switch

    Robin

    There is no inline mute switch on the listed model. You may use the ES915SC18 which DOES include an inline mute switch. https://www.audio-technica.com/cms/wired_mics/3964c1349ec568b9/index.html

    Brent

    Does AT have a microphone base that can be attached to the ES915C18?

    Mike

    Thank you for your inquiry. Yes the AT8474 universal isolation mount is the base that we usually send with this mic.

    Does this Microphone need Phantom power

    buddy1951

    All versions of the ES915 require 11-52V of Phantom Power. A vast majority of the time, Phantom Power is supplied by a mixer, or other compatible input device. Audio-Technica manufactures the AT8801 Phantom Power supply, should your input device not supply Phantom. For this microphone, Phantom will only be carried over a standard XLR to XLR cable, NOT any type of 1/4 or RCA connections. The ES915 is an Audio-Technica Sound Contractor Exclusive Item. The ONLY way to order it is through an A-T Sound Contractor. For your convenience, Audio-Technica offers a Sound Contractor Locator on www.audio-technica.com. Thanks!
