Features

 

Each A3 Halo Podium Microphone starts with dual precision-crafted capsules, exhaustively tested for perfect sonic performance. Assembled and fine-tuned to optimize polar patterns and frequency response, the result is an uncompromising microphone for the most demanding environments.

Ultra-bright Halo Light

The A3 Halo’s low-profile LED ring provides powerful and dispersed light in a red or green option. When turned off, the LED ring resumes a neutral tone, ensuring high-contrast indication of the microphone’s status. 

Fixed or Switchable Patterns

Choose hand-tuned omni, cardioid, or hypercardioid patterns, or the three-in-one switchable A3S.

A3 HALO Hypercardioid

The hypercardioid pickup pattern is nicely focused for a single source.

The pattern provides maximum overall rejection of interfering sounds for clean audio.

A3 HALO Cardioid

The cardioid pickup pattern has a wider front angle for small groups.

This pattern provides maximum rejection of sources behind the microphone.

A3 HALO Omni

The omnidirectional pattern picks up evenly from all directions.

Choose this pattern for full range frequency response, and complete coverage of larger groups.

A3 HALO Selectable

Switch between omni, cardioid, or hypercardioid patterns.

Choose a selectable pattern and be ready for anything; the most versatile option for use in any environment.

Configurable 5-Pin XLR

The jumper system inside the A3 Halo Podium Microphone allows installers to reconfigure the pins of the A3 Halo’s XLR5 connector to match most common halo gooseneck configurations without the need for system rewiring.

Breath and Pop Rejection

The A3 Halo Podium’s multistage wind noise reduction design acoustically and electronically tames pops and breath noise.

Advanced Vibration Rejection

The unique two-capsule design of the A3 Podium cancels out thumps, bumps, and handling noise, for distraction free presentations and recordings.

RF Immunity

Rigorous shielding and a proprietary circuit design protect the A3 Halo from radio frequency interference, including wireless devices and cell phones.

Three Standard Lengths

Standard 12″, 18″ or 24″ lengths to suit any application, with flexible gooseneck near the head and base for precise positioning.
