With their low-profile design that mounts unobtrusively in tabletops, ceilings or panels for minimum visibility, the ES945O/XLR omnidirectional condenser boundary microphone and ES947C/XLR cardioid condenser boundary microphone provide clear, highly intelligible audio that is perfect for conferencing, recording, monitoring and other demanding sound pickup applications. Protected by a rugged all-metal case with a two-layer perforated grille, the microphones feature polar patterns afford a 360° pickup angle (ES945O/XLR) and 120° pickup angle (ES947C/XLR), respectively, while Audio-Technica’s proprietary UniGuard® RFI-shielding technology provides outstanding rejection of radio frequency interference (RFI). The microphones’ IPX4 water resistance sets them in a class of their own as boundary mics. Additionally, the ES947C/XLR and has a small front-of-mic indicator to ensure proper orientation for maximum pickup.
