  • Overview


    With its low-profile design that mounts unobtrusively in tabletops for minimum visibility, the ES947/LED cardioid condenser boundary microphone provides clear, highly intelligible audio that is perfect for sound reinforcement, professional recording and teleconferencing, television and other demanding sound pickup applications.

    Protected by a rugged all-metal case with a two-layer steel mesh grille, the microphone’s cardioid polar pattern affords a 120° pickup angle, while its UniGuard® RFI-shielding technology provides outstanding rejection of radio frequency interference (RFI). Users can easily toggle between mute and live audio thanks to the microphone’s capacitive-type touch-sensitive switch. An integral Red/Green LED ring indicates the mute status, staying green when the microphone is live and turning red when it is muted.

    Additionally, the ES947/LED is equipped with a self-contained power module with an XLRM-type output connector, eliminating the need for an external power module.

    The microphone is available in two colors: black (ES947/LED) and silver (ES947SV/LED). A pair of isolators is included for optional mechanical isolation from the mounting surface.

  • Q & A

    Is there a Gooseneck equivalent to the ES947w/LED? I will be deploying 7 other ES947 mics but need a Gooseneck for the Head-of-the-Table position where a laptop or other device would block a regular ES947. Mounting off center-of-the-table to avoid blocking would not be preferred for the CEO positon on the table.

    Rick

    You may use a standard gooseneck microphone such as the ES915 with the AT8657/LED mount which has the same look and similar features except offers a contact closure rather than a local mute switch. https://www.audio-technica.com/cms/windscreens_mounts/5b6d466a32dcfbee/index.html Please contact our Audio Solutions Department at (330) 686-2600 ext 5000 or at audio-solutions@atus.com for additional assistance with this.

    The spec isn't clear, does the ES947/LED microphone come with everything I need, Mic,LED ring, button, assembly, etc? Or do I need to purchase the AT8657/LED microphone socket with logic (optional remote control) to make everything work?

    Nick Name

    The ES947/LED is local muting only and has a standard 3 pin XLR output. To use logic and contact closure control, purchase the ES947 microphone and the AE8657/LED mount which will allow you plug the microphone into the socket and give you a standard 5 pin XLR output connection.

    Is there a way for the mute to be controlled remotely? Say from a ClearOne 880T Mixer?

    Scott

    Thank you for your inquiry. The mute function for local muting only.

    To add to the previous answer, such a feature is possible using a combination of the ES947 and the AT8657/LED.
