The U853RW (colour white) is a wide-range miniature condenser microphone with a cardioid polar pattern. It is designed for quality sound reinforcement, professional recording, television and other demanding sound pickup applications. The combination of small size and excellent response makes the microphone ideal for suspension over choirs, instrumental groups or theater stages.

The microphone requires 11V to 52V phantom power for operation.

The microphone is equipped with UniGuard® RFI-shielding technology, which offers outstanding rejection of radio frequency interference (RFI).

The microphone's cardioid polar pattern provides a 120° angle of acceptance. Additional interchangeable elements with omnidirectional (360°), hypercardioid (100°) and UniLine® (90°) pickup patterns are available.

The microphone includes a 7.6 m (25') permanently attached miniature cable. Its free end connects to the provided AT8538 power module via a special TA3F-type connector designed to optimize RFI immunity. The output of the power module is a 3-pin XLRM-type connector.

A recessed switch in the power module permits choice of flat response or low-frequency roll-off (via integral 80 Hz high-pass UniSteep® filter) to help control undesired ambient noise.

The microphone comes equipped with a power module, a vinyl-coated steel hanger for positioning over a choir/orchestra/stage, a two-stage foam windscreen and a 5/8"-27 stand adapter.
