Earthworks FM500/HC
19" Podium Gooseneck Hypercardioid Microphone


The Earthworks FM500/HC podium gooseneck hypercardioid microphone provides superb intelligibility and sound quality for applications requiring a tighter pickup pattern with greater off-axis rejection. At 19 inches, this is just the right length for most podium and church applications. The FM500/HC can be adjusted with no handling noise and it will stay where you put it. It is also the perfect size to position unobtrusively in an instrumental ensemble or in front of a choir for sound reinforcement or recording. Orators will be highly intelligible and you will have more gain before feedback.
