L-R: Audio-Technica ES945O/XLR omnidirectional condenser boundary microphone and ES947C/XLR cardioid condenser boundary microphone

STOW, OH – Audio-Technica notes that its ES945O/XLR and ES947C/XLR add IPX4 water resistance, protecting the microphones from splashes of water.

More details from Audio-Technica (www.audio-technica.com):

Audio-Technica, a leading innovator in transducer technology for over 50 years, announces the availability of the ES945O/XLR omnidirectional condenser boundary microphone and ES947C/XLR cardioid condenser boundary microphone – replacing A-T’s popular ES945 and ES947 with these upgraded versions. Notably, the ES945O/XLR and ES947C/XLR add IPX4 water resistance, protecting the microphones from splashes of water and making them even more ideal conferencing and monitoring solutions for a wide range of applications.

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.

The ES945O/XLR and ES947C/XLR are equipped with a self-contained power module with an XLRM-type output connector, eliminating the need for an external power module. They are available in black (ES945O/XLR and ES947C/XLR) and white (ES945WO/XLR and ES947WC/XLR), and come with a pair of rubber isolators for mechanical isolation from the mounting surface.
