Countryman Introduces the A3 Halo Gooseneck Microphone

Countryman Associates has introduced the A3 Halo Gooseneck Microphone, a new mic based on the A3 podium mic with an ultrabright LED indicator ring and a dual-element design to deliver high sound quality. 

Countryman said the dual-element design allows for a switch-selectable omnidirectional, cardioid or hypercardioid polar pattern, excellent vibration rejection and wind noise reduction. The mic was designed for houses of worship, lecture halls, legislative chambers, meeting spaces and other environments where a podium-style microphone is required.

Key among the A3 Halo Gooseneck Microphone’s feature set is Active Plus Vibration Cancellation. This technology dramatically reduces table thumps and microphone handling noise without the need for shock mounting. It is ideal for historic buildings and flexible seating spaces. An 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.
