      I have these mics hooked up to Sony Digital Voice Recorders. They work GREAT!!! Don't waste your money on expensive wireless microphones that don't ever give you 100% reliable, great sounding audio. Get these mics paired up with an audio recorder for professional sound!!!I've been in the video business for over 6 years, and have had horrible experiences with all other professional brands, including: Shure, Sennheiser, and others... Ever since I've abandoned my wireless, [$] systems and replaced them with these inexpensive mics paired up with Sony Digital Voice Recorders, I have had REMARKABLE audio, and will never go back to the wireless systems. It takes a little more time to edit and sync the audio to the video, but the end product is WELL worth it!!!These simple, inexpensive mics are GREAT to use for every day recording: talking heads, interviews, weddings, commercials, ambient sound, etc!

      I shoot weddings and own a higher end wireless mic system. This mic's sound pickup is not very strong, it is really only able to pick up the person it is on, our other mic can pick up that person and those around him/her. For the price, you get a decent mic, but don't expect it to be your main workhorse for events. If you just want to mic one person for simple interviews, it'll work well. We bought this to replace one that was broken, so it isn't the most durable thing in the world.

      Comments about Azden EX-503 Lavalier Microphone:

      I use this as a clip on mic for interviews and wedding video. It works especially well for weddings to capture the vows and go along with the video. I was impressed with how clear the sound was and the noise cancelling was great. The only draw back is that it records in 1 channel mono as opposed to 2 channel stereo. Its very hard to notice unless you are wearing headphones however.

            It's an in-expensive solution to capturing spoken audio. Best use for this unit is spoken work capture for example a groom lavaliere at a wedding. I wouldn't use this for high fidelity capture but, that is not what it's intended for. Actually, I would't use a lavaliere mic for high fidelity audio any way.

                  I use it together with a zoom h2n recorder that goes into the pocket of the talent and the length of the cable is perfect for that purpose.

                  Sound js clean and clear and it is easy to attach to clothes. It handles wind noise OK.

                  The size is a little bit bigger than other labs, but hey, it's very cheap. It does the job.

                        Guys, seriously, go with this microphone.
                        It gives great semi-professional sound, and it's a great price!
                        What I did is I bought a Sony voice recorder and I use this mic plugged into the mic jack of the voice recorder to sync up to my video interviews later...I get great results!
                        I also use a Rode mic ontop of my DSLR for more depth to my interview sound and as backup sound, but I do love this little mic!

                        Highly recommend!

                            Wireless Microphone System works well for shooting product video's. Even though the last system we ordered started to fail after the first year, for the price it was worth ordering again.

                                  Have a few of these with me on every shoot, use them for anything and everything. They work well indoors without the windscreen and just fine outside with the windscreen as well. I have compared them with a few other quality lapel mics and as long as you know how to work your feild recorder keeping your input levels accurate you will not be able to tell much of a difference between this mic and a $100.00 mic. I use mine with either a Zoom H1 or H2. Only complaint is the clip is expensive to replace if you loose it so I also purchased a few Pearstone Universal Lapel mic clips that work really well with this lav.

                                    I attach this to my H1 Handy recorder to record my weekly messages. It is great. The length of the cable is plenty without it being in the way. I have used several times and i love it!!

                                      I like a lot, is an excellent for interviews, you'll hear clear, and for that price is excellent choice. I use it with my 60d and i connect it directly to my cam.

                                        I got this to replace the Azden mics I have. The Azden ones require battery power and have a cord a mile long. When I'm working weddings, I need it to work every time and I hate to stock those stupid watch batteries. Plus, the cord was always so long and I felt bad asking grooms and officiants to stash it in their pocket. This mic solved all that. The cord is the perfect length to go from the lapel to the recorder in their pocket and it doesn't require additional power. Audio quality more than acceptable for speaking. The only reason for 4 stars instead of 5 is that it is only mono and not stereo. It's a minor thing for me but stereo would be nice.

                                            I use this mic on a Tascam DR-05 recorder as a backup audio or when I can't use wireless. For the money it works just fine. As good as my Countrymen or Sankens? Nope but for what it is and the price, you can't go wrong.

                                              I used this mic for 4 years before I had to replace it. I have the Azden 320UPR system and this lav mic is great for interviews for the web videos I produce. Highly recommended!

                                                Excellent peice of equipment that I have used on many professional interview shoots. I was using an Audio Technica Mic with the cable that was 20 feet long plugged directing into my DSLR, but I was never quite happy with the quality. This little Azden Lav plugged into a Zoom H1 is now my field audio setup and the output is fantastic compared to what I was getting with the Audio Technica. The windscreen never falls off and the gear feels high quality. Worth every penny. I will probably get two just so I have another as a back up. It works perfectly as a wireless mic setup. I hit record on the Zoom, clip it on the talent, they put in their pocket and off we go. I also use Plural Eyes to sync in post- it's a really cool setup.

                                                Works fine in my classroom as a general purpose mic. I like the lapel clip (included).

                                                The downside is the apparent weakness of the connection where the wire enters the mic itself. My first EX-503 went bad at this connection, but, hey, it lasted over 2 years of daily use.
