Countryman A3 Halo Gooseneck MicrophoneCountryman Associates has introduced the A3 Halo Gooseneck Microphone, targeting applications in houses of worship, lecture halls, legislative chambers, meeting spaces and other environments where presenters require a versatile and visually discreet podium-style microphone to ensure their message is clearly heard.

Based on Countryman’s A3 Podium Microphone, the A3 Halo includes an ultrabright LED indicator ring and a dual-element design to deliver high sound quality. The dual-element design allows for a switch-selectable omnidirectional, cardioid, or hypercardioid polar pattern, excellent vibration rejection, and wind noise reduction.

Key among the A3 Halo Gooseneck Microphone’s feature set is Active Plus Vibration Cancellation, which dramatically reduces table thumps and microphone handling noise without the need for shockmounting – making it well suited to use in historic buildings and flexible seating spaces. An innovative 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, the A3 has a screw-on multistage windscreen and rigorous RF protection. With a choice of three lengths in a rugged semi-rigid design, it is a versatile new addition to the company’s podium microphone offerings.

‘The versatility of the A3 Podium Microphone makes it a great fit for conference rooms, houses of worship, council chambers, and courtrooms,’ says Countryman Associates President, Chris Countryman. ‘The active vibration cancellation eliminates the need for bulky shock mounts and the pattern switchability is perfect for flexible spaces and changing needs. I'm very pleased that we can now offer the A3 Halo Podium Microphone to bring those features to applications which also require an indicator ring.’

The Countryman A3 Halo Gooseneck Microphone will become available in Q2 2019. The A3HL Halo Fixed Pattern Microphone (Hypercardioid) is priced at US$699.95; the A3CL Halo Fixed Pattern Microphone (Cardioid) at US$699.95; The A3OL Halo Fixed Pattern Microphone (Omnidirectional) at US$699.95; and the A3SL Halo Selectable Pattern Microphone (Omni, Cardioid, Hypercardioid) at US$1149.95.
