      I had occasion to use the Hush Lav with a Sanken COS-11 lav, hidden under men's and women's clothing. The Hush Lav sleeve works very well in situations where a miniature Lav needs to be hidden and isolated from clothing noise. I found it particularly useful on women, when hidden under clothing. However, the rubber mount included in the COS11 kit was just as effective for placement on men, or in locations where body curvature was minimal.

      As the Hush Lav is an expendable product, I recommend using it where needed but do not recommend as an across the board solution, where other methods may work just as well.

      Not so sure

      Work reasonably well when you can actually get the thing over the capsule. More worried about the mic head/cable abuse getting it to fit, than rustle etc tbh.

      Work reasonably well when you can actually get the thing over the capsule. More worried about the mic head/cable abuse getting it to fit, than rustle etc tbh.

      A lot of colour bleed; my fingers look liked I had a fight with a sharpie.

      Also if your mic head isn't black and you care, think twice! Or buy the white ones!

      Oh and surgical tape or gaff will probably render it unusuable again.

      For the hassle, esp in a rush on set, I'll take my chances with other methods.

                  I bought it for my Sennheiser G3 wireless lav. Although not stated as compatible, I decided to give it a try, but with no luck. Maybe the Sennheiser mic is too thick, but the Hush Lav didn't help much.

                    These little Hush Lavs are a perfect alternative the Vampire clips for the Sanken COS-11D. A must have for anyone with Sanken Lavs. What great is that 12 come in one pack. If you are using medical tape, they can be re-used. However, if you decide to tape these on with moleskin tape, then they become an expendable.

                    These are magic, Hush Lav where have you been all my life. They really do work, great for isolating clothing noise. If you plan to reuse them be careful removing the gaffer tape and if using a larger capsule you need to massage the Hush Lav onto it otherwise it will tear. Could do with a larger hole option for bigger Lav's.

                      Very simple, yet very effective for hiding lavalier mics and hushing the clothing rustle you might encounter.

                      While these were made for Countryman and other small lavalieres, I have had great results with my Sony ECM-77Bs.

                      These are just a small tube of acoustically transparent foam, and you just cut them to size, stick in the mic capsule, and Bob's your uncle... all done.

                      Not all solutions have to be complicated, and these sleeves belong in every sound-person's kit bag.

                      Cheap, simple yet effective. I wish they made beer that way.

                        Lav mikes should disappear on you interviewees and these not onlynhide the shine of the metal or plastic, they're also designed to get rid of the annoying clothing rustle that always ruins your best interviews. I should have gotten both white and black to make it easier to blend into multiple colours of cloths.
