OmnidirectionalAudio-Technica ES961

Omnidirectional Condenser Microphone

The ES961 is designed for surface-mount applications needing unidirectional sound reinforcement with high signal-to-noise ratio and elimination of phase distortion due to reflections. It features a recessed switch that permits low-end roll-off for reduction of low-frequency ambient background noise, and heavy-duty construction for minimal pickup of surface vibration. The microphone is available in two colors: black (ES961) and white (ES961W); it is also available with a TRS phone plug that permits easy mounting and removal (ES961P).

  • Low-profile design for minimum visibility
  • Heavy die-cast case and rubber bottom pad minimize coupling of surface vibration to the microphone
  • 25' (7.6 m) detachable cable (TA3F to XLRM-type)
  • Also available in white as ES961W

The Audio-Technica ES961 is also known as: ES961W.
