    This small mic is so sensitive that the tonal quality and volume come across clearly and perfectly. It does not need to be worn close to the throat or mouth to acurately pick up speech without any distortion. This is a very, very fine product, and I highly recommend it to anyone who needs a good wireless lapel mic.

    I'm a wedding videographer. I purchased this mic last week to use with a digital voice recorder. The microphone picks up the subject that it's connected to clearly, but doesn't seem very omnidirectional. Overall I've been fairly satisfied with the microphone performance, but extremely unsatisfied with the clip that comes with it. I had hardly touched the thing, and was gentle with it always, but the plastic holder for the mic broke the very first time I used it, forcing me to have to use gaffer tape to tape the mic to my subject. Another thing that should be noted is the microphone is pretty large, much larger than I expected.

        Comments about Samson LM5 Omnidirectional Lavalier Microphone:

        This mic was very prone to wind noise regardless of fuzzy windscreen. We shoot outdoors and any wind renders audio useless. So we added fuzzy mic windscreens. Testing betwen this unit and AT and Azden mics with the same windscreen showed that the windscreen functions fine. Also, the mic housing and even the closest 6 inches of cord were EXTREMELY microphonic. The 3 of these we purchased are now in a nearby garbage can.

                    Very good log lasting microphone. My last one got a short in in, so I had to replace it. This microphone isn't the best but works great on stage for small performances.
