The U857R is a wide-range condenser microphone with a cardioid polar
pattern. It is designed for quality sound reinforcement, professional
recording, television and other demanding sound pickup applications.
The small-diameter double gooseneck design permits highly flexible
positioning while maintaining a smooth, well-contoured appearance.
The U857R stands 305.0 mm (12.01″) from the table or podium; it is also
available in a 421.0 mm (16.58″) version as U857RL. The two models are
identical in all other respects.
The microphone requires 11V to 52V phantom power for operation.
