The new 210 Hybrid Sniper Mic Kit fills the need for a high quality, lightweight, full-bodied, pro shotgun mic system that delivers the flexibility to easily jump between DSLR cameras and other PROsumer gear that utilize a 3.5mm mic input, AND pro video cameras, recorders, and mixers with XLR connectors. The Q Mini Boom Pole is also included for lightweight location sound booming.

The 210 Hybrid Shotgun Mic revolves around a purpose built super-cardioid 21mm screw-on shotgun barrel (210H), which houses a new full bandwidth, low-noise, condenser capsule. Two separate screw-on power supply units for pro XLR or Q compact connection (3.5mm) are included for coupling with the 210H shotgun barrel. These and all of the essential accessories are delivered in a lightweight and compact, travel friendly leatherette case

The Compact Power Supply (CPS) features a three-way selector switch for 0dB, +10dB, and +20db gain stage settings to maximize audio quality with DSLR cameras. The CPS employs Que Audio’s compact connection system allowing for lightweight flexibility with cable and connector choices as well as aiding in easy cable and connector replacement. The included Compact Curly Cable screws on to the CPS, and the 3.5mm connector. Optional connectors are also available separately for the most popular 3rd party wireless systems. Using two GP A76, 1.5V button cell batteries (included), battery life of up to 100 continuous hours at +20dB can be achieved. An ON/OFF selector switch and power LED are also located on the CPS unit.

The XLR Power Supply unit (XLR PS) can be powered by 48V phantom power with or without batteries installed, or can be powered with a pair of LR44 batteries alone (included). A three-way HPF selector switch includes 0, 50Hz, or 200Hz settings for reducing handling and wind artifacts. An ON/OFF selector switch and power LED are also housed on the XLR PS.

Utilizing the same barrel between the two different power supplies ensures that consistent characteristics of sound quality are achieved on both PRO XLR and 3.5mm camera types. Machined from lightweight aluminum, the 210 Hybrid Shotgun Microphone barrel and power supplies weigh-in much less heavy than other full-bodied shotgun mics.
