Overview

ES925 Modular Microphone System

The ES925 is a modular microphone system designed for professional sound reinforcement and other commercial sound applications. It includes a condenser microphone element, gooseneck, and a choice of different power modules, along with windscreen, clamp and shockmount.

All elements are interchangeable with other ES modular microphone components within the range, allowing you to select power module types (XLR, FM3, FM5, DS5), gooseneck lengths (6", 12", 15", 18", 21", 24"), and microphone polar patterns (line + gradient, hypercardioid, cardioid, omnidirectional), to create a product tailored to your exact specifications.

The ES925 microphone’s low-profile element attaches to the small-diameter gooseneck, which offers highly flexible positioning with an unobtrusive appearance. An essential foam windscreen protects against plosives, and the choices of power module offer a solution for any installation.

The low-profile element housing of the XLR power module features a highly visible, single-state RGB LED status indicator that functions seamlessly with ATUC series products and the AT8699R desk stand. It plugs into any standard XLRF-type connector or mounts to 5/8"-27 stands using the optional quick-mount stand adapter.

The 3-pin flush-mount power module is equipped with a capacitive touch switch that enables local muting of the microphone.

The 5-pin flush-mount power module is equipped with a touch-sensitive capacitive-type user switch for remote switching options.

The desk stand power module features heavy die-cast construction and no-slip bottom pads to minimize coupling of surface vibration to the microphone. It is equipped with a touch-sensitive capacitive-type user switch with local and remote switching options. Locally, it can be set to any one of three operating modes: “touch-on/touch-off,” “touch-to-talk” and “touch-to-mute.”

To provide enhanced control in conference and boardroom installations, the desk stand power module and 5-pin flush-mount power module can use the unit’s external contact closure allow you to trigger an external device, such as a camera or the lighting, from the switch.

All power module solutions are equipped with Audio-Technica’s proprietary RFI shielding technology that provides unsurpassed immunity from radio frequency interference, and the desk stand and flush mount options feature a highly visible, two-state RGB LED status indicator in both the power module and the microphone element housing.

The flush mounted options mount neatly in tabletops and come with isolators that provide mechanical dampening of the mounting surface, while the desk stand is equipped with a proprietary filter from Audio-Technica, which provides steep low-frequency attenuation to improve sound pickup without affecting vocal reproduction quality.

Each element is designed to work harmoniously with other ES925 modular microphone components, allowing you to customise your solution with confidence.
