Audio Technica U873R

The U873R UniPoint hypercardioid condenser microphone offers smooth, accurate audio reproduction for handheld and fixed-mount applications. The microphone is equipped with A-T’s UniGuard technology for unsurpassed immunity from radio frequency interference. It also features an 80 Hz UniSteep filter that reduces pickup of unwanted low-frequency ambient noise. The microphone’s special internal shock mounting eliminates virtually all handling and cable noise. Designed for distortion-free output even in intense sound fields, interchangeable elements (cardioid, hypercardioid and omnidirectional) permit selection of angle-of-acceptance from 100° to 360°.

70 - 20,000 Hz
Signal-to-Noise Ratio
This spec compares the strength of the signal to the level of background noise. A higher value indicates less background noise.
70 dB
Maximum Sound Pressure Level
This is the maximum sound pressure level that the microphone is capable of accepting and transferring into an electrical signal.
155 dB
Output Impedance
This is the amount of impedance that the microphone allows.
200 ohms
Power Requirement
Condenser microphones require an external power source to operate. Typically a +48v DC charge commonly refereed to as Phantom Power.
+48v (Phantom)
Connection Type
This is the manner in which the microphone connects to the source unit. For wired microphones, this is the connector that directly connects the microphone to the mixer (or other input source unit).
