Audiotechnica AT853A Microphone

Audiotechnica AT853A Microphone


The AT835a is a wide-range miniature condenser microphone with a cardioid (unidirectional) polar pattern. It has been designed for use in high-quality sound reinforcement, professional recording, television, and other demanding sound pickup applications. The AT853a is furnished with a vinyl-coated steel hanger that allows it to be positioned inconspicuously over a choir, orchestra, stage, etc., for very low-profile situations. 

Supplied as a cardioid, the AT853a easily accepts interchangeable elements to permit selection of angle of acceptance from 100 degrees to 360 degrees. 

The microphone features a 25’ (7.6 m) permanently-attached miniature cable with a 3-pin TA3F output connector, which mates with a 3-pin TB3M connector on the AT8531 power module provided. It can be powered from an external 9V to 52V DC phantom power supply or from a 1.5V AA battery. Current demands are so low that a premium batter will provide about 1200 hours of continuous use. A built-in 3-position switch on the power module allows selection of off on/flat response or on/low-roll-off.

The microphone element is enclosed in a rugged housing with a low-reflective black finish.
