The ES925/DS5 is a modular microphone system designed for professional sound reinforcement and other commercial sound applications. It includes a condenser microphone element, gooseneck, and a desk stand power module. 

Each component is interchangeable with other ES modular microphone components, allowing you to mix and match power module types (XLR, FM3, FM5, DS5), gooseneck lengths (4.85", 9.08", 12.08", 15.08", 18.08", 21.08"), and microphone polar patterns (MicroLine®, hypercardioid, cardioid, omnidirectional).

The ES925/DS5 microphone’s low-profile element attaches to the small-diameter gooseneck, which offers highly flexible positioning while maintaining a well-contoured appearance. The included foam windscreen protects against plosives. The desk stand power module features heavy die-cast construction and no-slip bottom pads to minimize coupling of surface vibration to the microphone. It is equipped with a touch-sensitive capacitive-type user switch with local and remote switching options. Locally, it can be set to any one of three operating modes: “touch-on/touch-off,” “touch-to-talk” and “touch-to-mute.” For enhanced control in conference and boardroom installations, the unit’s external contact closure allows you to trigger an external device, such as a camera or the lighting, from the switch. The desk stand is also equipped with a UniSteep® filter that provides steep low-frequency attenuation to improve sound pickup without affecting vocal reproduction quality. Both the desk stand and the microphone element housing feature a highly visible, two-state RGB LED status indicator. UniGuard® innovations offer unsurpassed immunity from radio frequency interference.

Each component is interchangeable with other ES925 modular microphone components, allowing you to customize your build.
