This microphone is available in different colors and polar patterns. Each option has a 25.0' (7.6 m) cable with TA3F connector at the microphone and XLRM output connector.

The phantom-powered U851Rb condenser boundary microphone offers outstanding speech intelligibility and transparent sound quality for surface-mount applications such as high-quality sound reinforcement, professional recording, television, conferencing, and other demanding sound pickup situations. The microphone is equipped with a PivotPoint® rotating output connector, UniSteep® filter, and UniGuard® RFI-shielding technology. With a heavy die-cast case and silicon foam bottom pads to minimize coupling of surface vibration to the microphone, the U851Rb is equipped with self-contained electronics, eliminating the need for an external power module. Threaded inserts on the bottom of the microphone allow it to be mounted with screws for increased security.

Audio-Technica U851RB Features

  • Designed for surface-mount applications such as high-quality sound reinforcement, professional recording, television, conferencing and other demanding sound pickup situations
  • Superior off-axis rejection for maximum gain before feedback
  • PivotPoint® rotating output connector allows cable to exit from either the rear or the bottom of the microphone
  • Small-diameter UniPoint® element near boundary eliminates phase distortion and delivers clear, high-output performance
  • Available interchangeable elements permit angle of acceptance from 100° to 360°
  • UniGuard® RFI-shielding technology offers outstanding rejection of radio frequency interference (RFI)
  • Self-contained electronics eliminate need for external power module
  • Heavy die-cast case and non-slip silicone foam bottom pads minimize coupling of surface vibration to the microphone
  • Low-profile design with low-reflectance finish for minimum visibility
  • Threaded inserts on bottom of microphone allow it to be mounted with screws for increased security
