Designed for conferencing or public speaking applications, the APEX 146 features an integrated switchable high pass filter and three position user selectable switch modes for specific requirement or application.
The APEX 146 Desktop Microphone is ideal for conferencing, discussion groups, tele/video conferencing and announcement applications. Three user selectable operating modes (ON/OFF, Push-To-Talk or Push-To-Mute) functions allow the APEX 146 to be tailored to any specific requirement or application. The large integrated silent touch-switch on the front panel allows user control of the APEX 146 without the annoying snaps and pops that can plague a multi-microphone setup in high gain, high volume applications. An LED illuminated ring in the housing clearly displays the ready-to-talk condition to the user.
The APEX 146 is a condenser microphone and requires phantom power to operate. The microphone is enclosed in a rugged all metal housing with a low reflectance black finish and narrow gooseneck to limit visual distraction on lectern, conference desk or podium.

first off there was little information to go on to make an informed decision on the features of this microphone. I was desperate to get something so i could announce the varsity football game at the local high school. Secondly the 146 did not work. i an not sure why. our amp should have had sufficient "phantom" power. third, it did not have an off/on button or a volume control. and finally the mute switch on the side broke off. So over all I was not satisfied and returned it for a full refund.
Nice mic. Sounds decent. Excellent price. One gripe: the mute switch has about a 1.5 syllable delay in unmuting.
