Countryman Associates has introduced the A3 Halo Gooseneck Microphone. Based on Countryman’s A3 Podium Microphone, the A3 Halo includes an ultrabright LED indicator ring and a unique dual-element design to deliver superior sound quality. The dual-element design allows for a switch-selectable omnidirectional, cardioid, or hypercardioid polar pattern, excellent vibration rejection and wind noise reduction. With its rich feature set, the new A3 Halo Gooseneck Microphone is a terrific choice for houses of worship, lecture halls, legislative chambers, meeting spaces and any other environment where presenters require a versatile podium-style microphone to ensure their message is clearly heard.
Key among the A3 Halo Gooseneck Microphone’s feature set is Active Plus Vibration Cancellation. Active Plus Vibration Cancellation dramatically reduces table thumps and microphone handling noise without the need for shock mounting (making it a good option for historic buildings and flexible seating spaces). The in-mic jumper system enables installers to reconfigure the pins of the A3 Halo’s XLR5 to match most common halo gooseneck configurations without the need for system rewiring.
In order to ensure the best overall sound quality, end users will certainly appreciate the A3 Halo Gooseneck Microphone’s screw-on multistage windscreen and rigorous RF protection. With a choice of three lengths in a rugged semi-rigid design, the new A3 Halo Gooseneck Microphone is a versatile new addition to the company’s podium microphone offerings.
Countryman’s new A3 Halo Gooseneck Microphone will become available this month. Pricing for the various configurations is as follows:
- A3HL Halo Fixed Pattern Microphone (Hypercardioid): $699.95
