They're no bigger than a paper clip unless you consider the sound they produce. The Microflex Lavalier microphones bring a new level of sophistication to personal voice reproduction. Like all Microflex family microphones, the Lavaliers use Shure's interchangeable condenser cartridges, available in cardioid, supercardioid or omnidirectional polar patterns. That means you can be sure there's a Microflex Lavalier that's right for your job.

        The shure omni is an audio breath of fresh air for me. I started using it for direct xlr connection to my panasonic af100 and its given me the cleanest audio ive ever had.

            Comments about Shure MX183 - Omni-Directional Lavalier Condenser Microphone:

            I was told this mic was a powered mic and of all the reviews I read, nobody mentioned this mic requires phantom power, so I want to make it clear to everyone this mic requires phantom power.

            Otherwise, it is a really good mic.

            This lav mic does the job well and sounds good! The shape is a bit odd. I prefer the lav mics that have the wire at the bottom.
