Coles Microphones 4104B Lip Microphone - Noise Cancelling Commentator's Ribbon Microphone

You Pay: $839.68

The Coles 4104B Lip Microphone is a ribbon microphone designed for commentary and speech capturing in noisy environments. A sensitive ribbon transducer is combined with a directional polar pattern and flat, low-cut frequency response at 16Hz. The result is accurate signal reproduction without noise caused by ambiance or proximity effect.

In order to minimize noise and achieve the best frequency response, the Lip Microphone requires the user to position the microphone close to the mouth. A positioning bar makes contact with the users lip and creates the correct talking distance between the user and microphone. Stainless steel breath shields protect the capsule against moisture and noise due to sibilance and plosive sounds. A removable, plastic hygiene shield is available and can be cleaned for reuse or thrown away.

Noise Free In Ambient Environments
The Coles 4104B Lip Microphone is designed for commentary applications in noisy, ambient environments. Directional polar and linear frequency response with low-cut roll off result in accurate reproduction with minimal noise.
Positioning Bar
A ribbon transducer is featured in the capsule and requires close positioning to the mouth for best results. A positioning bar makes contact with the users lip and maintains the necessary talking distance.
Low Frequency Roll-Off
The Lip Microphone features a flat frequency response with a low-cut roll off at 16Hz. This eliminates low frequency ambient noise and noise due to proximity effect.

    Mic works exactly as I expected, without a glitch and perfect straight out of the box. I couldn't be happier. Shipping was prompt and the product is without peer. Thanks so much for making it available for 150.00 less than anyone else!

      Comments about Coles Microphones 4104B Lip Microphone:

      The lip mic does its job as well as any tool I've used in broadcast journalism over 23 years. You need high quality narration track in a noisy environment? Like a war zone? Go back and watch file of Ted Koppel sitting atop a tank turret as the US marines rolled into Iraq--reporting with good audio as the invasion started--while using a Coles lip mic. This Coles 4104B Lip Microphone never lets me down and it is worth its weight in gold...but please don't raise the price because I wrote this.
      I have these mics in all of our ENG and SNG trucks for tracking packages in the field. Wouldn't want to work without them.
