UK - Audio-Technica has announced several new variations of its ES945 Omnidirectional Condenser Boundary Microphone and ES947 Cardioid Condenser Boundary Microphone, developed as a direct response to market feedback. All models are intended for surface flush-mount installation and include Audio-Technica's UniGuard RFI-shielding innovations for unsurpassed immunity from radio frequency interference.
The existing standard ES945 and ES947 models are being replaced and enhanced by the new ES945O/XLR (omnidirectional) and ES947C/XLR (cardioid), which feature upgraded functionality including IPX4 water resistance. These mics are designed for surface-mount applications such as conferencing, recording, monitoring and other demanding sound pickup applications.
Audio-Technica is also introducing new miniature, space saving variations, known as ES945O/TB3 and ES947C/TB3. These mics are suitable for the same applications as the ES945O/XLR and ES947C/XLR, but the ultra-compact design enables extra-inconspicuous tabletop, ceiling and wall mounting.
The existing ES945/LED and ES947/LED (models intended specifically for conferencing) are being upgraded/replaced by the new ES945O/FM3 and ES947C/FM3. These mics feature a highly visible two-state RGB LED ring (seven selectable colours + OFF) to indicate mute status and a touch-sensitive capacitive user switch that enables local muting, making them ideal for conferencing applications.
Finally, new to the line are the ES945O/FM5 and ES947C/FM5, which are similar to the FM3 models but feature a 5-pin XLR output connector. With the FM5 models, not only can the switch be configured to toggle between mute and live audio but, with the microphone’s external contact closure, it can also be set up to trigger an external device, such as a camera or room lighting.
Audio-Technica’s new ES945 and ES947 variations will be available in the UK and Europe in Spring 2021.
