Cardioid Condenser Gooseneck Microphone with Mute Switch/LED


Equipped with Audio-Technica's legendary electro-acoustic design innovations, the ES915SC is a wide-range miniature condenser microphone with a cardioid 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 ES915SC 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 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.
  • Designed for quality sound reinforcement, professional recording, television and other demanding sound pickup applications
  • Low-profile element provides uniform cardioid polar pattern with 120º acceptance angle
  • Plugs into any standard XLRF-type connector, or direct mounts to 5/8"-27 stands using included thread-mount adapter
  • Included low-profile isolation mount attenuates noise, shock and vibration
  • Available interchangeable elements permit angle of acceptance from 90º to 360º
  • Small-diameter, alternating gooseneck design permits highly flexible positioning
