Designed to capture spoken word up close, gooseneck microphones are suitable for conferencing and AV environments, or when a presenter doesn't want to use a hand-held microphone.
Mostly found on podiums, the microphone is integrated into the gooseneck stand rather than a cable, and is generally mounted on a desktop base. This is also the most popular microphone format for anouncing systems in buildings such as hospitals and schools.
We have a selection of desktop microphones which are perfect for users reading from notes or scripts. Gooseneck microphones pick up sound from the top, using cardioid or super cardioid patterns, meaning they aren't suitable for musical instruments or distant sounds. These desktop microphones are also suitable for DJ and club use, with BNC socket and XLR plug options available.
