The Tram TR50 is a professional omnidirectional electret condenser lavalier microphone with a low-profile design resulting in low visibility. The TR50 features a frequency response that enhances the character and frequencies associated with speech.

The polar pattern provides a generous pick up response at the direct and off-axis sections of the microphone capsule. This enhances sensitivity and minimizes noise associated with movement, wind and clothing contact. The TR50 features minimum sound coloration and is available in a variety of connectors for direct integration with wireless transmitters. This version features a 1/8" (3.5mm) connection for use with Sennheiser EW wireless transmitters.

The TR50 is powered by your Sennheiser EW transmitter, but can also be hard-wired with the assistance of the TR79 power supply, not included. The TR79 accepts external Phantom power or uses internal battery power.

    I am a professional videographer doing weddings, conferences, events, short films, etc. I use these on a regular basis with my Sennheiser wireless kits. I have attached a photo showing a comaprison of the TR-50 to the Sennheiser ME2 and Rode smartLav+. All 3 files were recorded with the lavs in the same position and distance from the source. The TR-50 has such a crisp audio file, with no excess noise. Well worth the money. The other two do a good job, the Tram just does an exceptional one!

    I'd heard great things about these lav mics, I bought two, and they did sound great. But both failed after less than an hour's use. The cords had suffered internal wire separation.

    On one, it was a failure right at the jack, as it would come on and off if you wiggled it there. The other just went dead, probably at the same place, but no amount of wiggling could make it live again.

    For the price, these should be more robust.

    WORKS WITH ROLAND R-O5 WITHOUT PHANTOM P

          Comments about Tram TR50 - Omnidirectional Lavalier Condenser Microphone (Black):

          This mic will work with the ROLAND R-05 without phantom power or extra adapter power. All you have to do is turn on the PLUG in POWER in the menu settings. Also do this next step.. On the r-05 you can change the plug in power voltage from 0.9 volts to 1.2 volts. There is a hidden menu you can access by pressing the "AB/Split" button together with the "Menu" button.
          It will display what looks like the normal menu screen but with an extra option choice #8 that says "Special Setup". "Mic Bias" which is default set to *0.9 v change it to 1.2v SO THIS WILL GIVE YOUR TRAM TR50 MORE POWER

            Use as a lavalier mic for on camera talent.
            Easy to hide with lots of mounting options. My favorite is the vampire teeth mount. Great audio quality - no "tin can" sound. Voices are true and deep.

                      The Tram TR50 is a great sound lav mic. Let me first get that out of the way. It's very clear, and does a great job representing the human voice without any mud or unnecessary frequencies. Here is the issue with the TR50. It has a VERY low output gain, and you need to boost your pre amp very loud to get enough volume out of this mic. If you're using a very high end recorder like a sound device, or another great pre amp, then you're fine, but if you are using any lower end recorder (like an H4N, H6, Roland R05, etc), you're going to get a LOT of pre amp noise, along with your signal. In comparison to the included Sennheiser ME-2 that comes with the sennheiser wireless, I need to boost the TR50 more than twice as much on the preamp to get the same amount of gain.

                      Definitely consider whether this mic is good for you. If you have a great recorder, then I recommend it. If you don't, then get something else.

                        For this price point they are the best I've used, and a standard in the industry. Buy them you won't be dissapointed. I recently used them for a wedding and put one on the groom and it even picked up the brides vows extremely well. Has a great tone out of the box, not needing much touch up in post at all, no high end hiss...amazing!

                        Working in Location sound, I haven't run into one recordist that doesn't keep these handy mics in their arsenal. They offer quality sound at a low price and that's always rare in the business of audio. Of course you'll want to pull out your COS 11s or DPAs in many situations but you'll be hard pressed to find a audio bag without a pair of these!!!

                          great quality for a tiny lav mic. I bought this after researching lav mics for a few weeks for an upcoming project. The TR50 is great quality and comes with a nice case to store when not in use. I use it with an Roland RO5 recorder.

                          After looking for a week at more expensive mic setups I settled on this one due to the quality and the price point.

                            use with Roland R-05 recorder instead of wireless lavs for weddings.
                            Nice that in comes with a case and several types of clips

                              I use this product with the Roland R-05 MP3 recorder to record audio when I'm shooting run-n-gun with my DSLR and don't have time to setup the shotgun microphone, phantom power recorder, etc.

                              The product works well with the R-05 (make sure the plug-in power is turned on), but I find the overall audio strength to be lacking. Maybe I'm just spoiled by how amazing my Audio-Technica AT4073a sounds. I can't seem to get the audio from the TR-50 to sound as rich and "warm" as the audio from my shotgun. Maybe I'm just expecting too much from a lavalier (first one I've owned).

                              Overall I'm just satisfied with the purchase. It's useful for situations when I can't use a boom, but if I can afford the extra time and effort, I'll use my boom and shotgun every time.

                                  If you are looking for professional sound this is a great product for the price. I really like the sound quality, even better than my Sanken 11D which I paid more. It comes with necessary accesories and compact case.

                                          I used to work with Tram TR50 mics years ago. The company I work for bought several Sennheiser Evolution 100 G3 Wireless system which came with a ME2 omnidirctional condenser mic. After one or two years of continual use, those mics eventually died. I recently purchased two Tram TR50 microphones with the 1/8" connectors to go with my Sennheiser systems. What a great mic! Great tonality, rugged, easy to use. The TR50 comes with several clips and other clip options from the B&H website.
