FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE


Audio-Technica Offers Its ES945O/FM3, ES947C/FM3, ES945O/FM5 and ES947C/FM5 Condenser Boundary Mics with Touch-Sensitive Control for Conferencing Applications


— These mics feature RGB LED status indication lights and a capacitive-type user switch that enables muting of the microphone, making them especially ideal for conferencing —


Stow, OH, May 6, 2021 Audio-Technica, a leading innovator in transducer technology for over 50 years, has introduced four new condenser boundary microphones: the ES945O/FM3 omnidirectional, ES947C/FM3 cardioid, ES945O/FM5 omnidirectional and ES947C/FM5 cardioid condenser boundary microphone. These mics feature a capacitive-type user switch that enables muting of the microphone – making them especially ideal for conferencing applications. The FM3 models replace the existing ES945/LED and ES947/LED and feature local muting, while the FM5 models represent an entirely new product for Audio-Technica with an advanced feature set offering remote muting and control.

The omnidirectional ES945O/FM3 and cardioid ES947C/FM3 feature a 3-pin XLR output connector. Designed for clear, highly intelligible conferencing, recording, monitoring and other demanding sound pickup applications, the ES945O/FM3 and ES947C/FM3 mount unobtrusively in tabletops or panels, but include a highly visible two-state RGB LED ring (7 selectable colors + OFF) to indicate mute status. The microphones’ polar patterns provide 360° (ES945O/FM3) and 120° (ES947C/FM3) coverage, respectively. A rugged all-metal case with a two-layer steel mesh grille protects the microphone element, while A-T’s proprietary UniGuard® RFI-shielding technology provides outstanding rejection of radio frequency interference (RFI). Both mics are equipped with a self-contained power module, eliminating the need for an external one, and come with a pair of rubber isolators for mechanical isolation from the mounting surface.

The omnidirectional ES945O/FM5 and cardioid ES947C/FM5 have a similar feature set to the “FM3” models but offer remote muting and control, as well as a 5-pin XLR output connector. Additionally, with the “FM5” models, not only can the switch be configured for remote muting and/or external contact closure, but it can also be set up to trigger an external device, such as a camera or the room’s lighting.

ES945O/FM3, ES947C/FM3, ES945O/FM5 and ES947C/FM5 features:

  • Designed for surface-mount applications such as conferencing, recording, monitoring and other demanding sound pickup applications
  • Capacitive touch switch enables muting of the microphone (local muting for FM3, remote muting for FM5)
  • “FM5” units only: Logic I/O capability permits remote muting and control of remote devices from each mic’s touch-sensitive capacitive-type user switch
  • Highly visible two-state RGB LED ring (7 selectable colors + OFF) indicates mute status
  • Low-profile element provides uniform polar patterns with 360° (ES945O/FM3 and ES945O/FM5) and 120° (ES947C/FM3 and ES947C/FM5) acceptance angles, respectively
  • Mount unobtrusively in tabletops and panels
  • Self-contained power module with 3-pin (“FM3” models) or 5-pin (“FM5” models) XLR output connector
  • Rugged all-metal case with a two-layer steel mesh grille
  • Rubber Isolators provide mechanical dampening of mounting-surface vibration
  • Requires 11V to 52V DC phantom power
  • UniGuard® RFI-shielding technology offers outstanding rejection of radio frequency interference (RFI)
  • RoHS compliant—free from all substances specified in the EU directive on hazardous substances

The ES945O/FM3 and ES947C/FM3 boundary microphones will be available summer 2021 with U.S. MSRP pricing as follows:

ES945O/FM3: $263.00
ES947C/FM3: $263.00

Audio-Technica’s new ES945O/FM5 and ES947C/FM5, condenser boundary microphones are now available with U.S. MSRP pricing as follows:

ES945O/FM5: $279.00
ES947C/FM5: $279.00
