      Good product exceeds the expectations I had of microphones for video conferencing, the voice is clear and significantly reduces ambient sounds

      Comments about Audio-Technica PRO 8-HEX - Dynamic Headworn Mic:

      I use this mic with the Pearstone LMT100 - Low to High Impedance Matching Transformer feeding an Olympus LS-10. Finding a good wired lavaliere or head worn mic with a 3.5 mm plug is nearly impossible.With the PRO 8-HEX, no phantom power is needed and the hyper cardioid pattern does a great job of rejecting unwanted sounds in the room.It takes some fine tuning to get the placement of the mic right to eliminate Pops and esses even with the windscreen. If you wear glasses the unit can be cumbersome and difficult to wear as it's recommended to wear the pads at the temples. If you're not careful you can end up looking like a total geek from outer space, but some may find the look advantageous. No accounting for taste.Given the options this is the best I've been able to find without spending quite a bit more money.

          Comments about Audio-Technica PRO 8-HEX - Dynamic Headworn Mic:

          Needed a "wired" (not wireless) head worn mic for lecture sound reinforcement. This fit the need nicely. With mic placed at the corner of the lips and the small pop filter in place, it's reasonably comfortable and sound quality is good. Allowed the portable Mackie speaker/amp to be operated at high volume without feedback. Good for PA use, probably OK for vocals if the talent can deal with the wire.

            This Pro 8 Hex is used at Clear Channel Stadium in Lancaster, CA. I'm the Public Address announcer for the JetHawks, the single A affiliate of the Houston Astros. This Headworn Mic is a replacement for the original at the stadium. The quality definitely hits a home run!
