        The mics are small but robust, don't have much "rustle" especially if using the enclosed rubber mount. Good sound quality for voice recording

            I love how the cos11d sounds and i like the rejection of ambience from a sound coming from the back of the talent althou its an omni directional mic.
            Have used it for drama shoots for 7years now..and thats not going to change.

            Comments about Sanken COS-11D Omnidirectional Lavalier Microphone (Black):

            This mike has a really nice, rich sound, and pairs perfectly with a Lectrosonics transmitter. My only worry is that the connection between the wire and the plug seems a little delicate, so it's probably a good idea to reinforce it with some tape if it's likely to get tugged.

              Good choice for professionals that need to conceal a lav. Cuts pretty well with boom mics.

              Be gentle, especially around the TA5 end.
