        If you do, then it deserves, no demands, the best audio to go with it. The COS-11 may not be the total best in the opinions of some audio experts, but for my application and the cost, I would be hard pressed to find something better. Use with "Undercover Rycote" mounting system and you'll have interview quality that's top quality. I only wish I'd upgraded to this a few years ago.

          Totally worth the money. Water resistant(for those sweaty actors or rainy takes). Durable. Make sure you get the right connection piece for your wireless system. I use it with my Sennheiser G3's for both film and commercials and it always sounds superb! Much better than the included lav mics in most wireless systems.

          Replaced my ME-2 microphone with the Sanken's after reading all the reviews online. What a difference in quality. The sound is so natural and the range is incredible. I also noticed the how quiet the microphone was from the start. Make sure to turn the gain down to -15 db at the head. These are really a hot microphone. Highly recommend these.

            I use this mic as an upgrade to the stock Sennheiser me-2 that comes with the g3 transmitters. There is a vast improvement in sound quality, with a very natural, open frequency response. I have noticed significantly less RF interference as well since using these mics. Pricey, but worth every penny!

              Comments about Sanken COS-11DPT Omnidirectional Lavalier Microphone with Sennheiser Mini Connector (Black):

              If you're using the stock mic with your Sennheiser Evolution series G3 wireless system, you'll be pretty amazed at the difference. This mic makes the stock mic sound like it's wrapped in rubber. It's much more live, hotter, and has significantly broader frequency response. It's also more sensitive to placement, so take your time and set it up right on your subject. But yeah, get it.

              Comments about Sanken COS-11DPT Omnidirectional Lavalier Microphone with Sennheiser Mini Connector (Black):

              The virtues of the high sound quality and compact size of this mic have been expounded upon at length elsewhere, and I will add my voice to that crowd. However, if you are purchasing this mic with the 3.5 mm locking plug for a Sennheiser EW series transmitter, be advised that the particular plug used at the time of this writing does not pair well with the its intended transmitter's jack when any stress is applied. The soldering and strain relief are okay, but the plug itself is apparently problematic.Specifically, it appears to be slightly longer than the plug that comes with the lav included with the Sennheiser transmitter; so as a result of added leverage, it may be subject to forces that cause just enough bending of the tip to lose contact with the jack in which it is plugged. This is my opinion after experiencing this failure with two of these mics in a basically low-impact usage situation. Conversely, using the same mics furnished with a TA5 plug for Lectrosonics transmitters was not found to be prone to failure. My bottom line is that I will continue to use this excellent mic, but I will re-terminate with a new locking 3.5 mm TRS plug before using on location.

                I wont go on in detail about the sound quality, it is well known for this. I certainly beats my ME2 that comes with the Sennheiser EW series.

                Other things that are not mentioned about the mic, but a very helpful features.

                The mic comes with a weighted connector, which is great for dropping it down the talents/interviewee's clothing!

                The stock mounts are great, the clip mount (for outside clothing) allows you to loop the cord so that a little tug on the cord does not create any noise.

                The rubber mount (for under clothing) takes tape very well, cleans up nicely and mounts to the mike isolating the head from rubbing against clothing.

                The cord feels very much like the one off the set of headphones that comes with an iPod. It is not stiff, but not soft - it wont develop kinks or dents easily. The cord is slightly textured, but glue residue from Hydrocolloid or Micropore tape can be rubbed off easily.

                It is the little details that make for a great, usable mic - and Sanken has definitly paid attention to the little things!

                      I'm not a sound guy, so ease of use for 1-man-band situations is critical. The stock mic with my sennheiser packs...not good at all. SO much handling noise, tinny sound. This thing is sweet - cuts great with the MKH-50 overhead, super easy to place with minimal rustle. You get what you pay for, and this mic is my top-pick for the Sennheiser packs - makes the fairly cheap radio system sound GOOD.

                        I decided to upgrade my mics that came with the Sennheiser EW100's and did a bunch of research. Came across a few people that raved about this mic and I can see why. (OK...HEAR why!)
                        Much more natural/flat sound than the stock mic and cable is more robust. Being an omni it works no matter which direction it's pointed. I'm a little let down by the variety...or lack of variety of mounting accessories but the sound quality more than makes up the difference. It's it a little on the large side too.
                        Important...it is MUCH hotter than the stock mic and you must turn down the gain at the transmitter.
