I've owned about ten of these during our seven years of documentary filmmaking. Good metal canister construction. For the money, you can't go wrong. Remember, these are MONO lavs, and you'll need a stereo adapter to camcorder for sound in both channels! Though we've developed to a point where Sennehieser G2 wireless lavs are in our stable, there are times a quick wired set-up is good enough. The sound is quite pleasing. Buy extra batteries, you'll need them every six hours or so. Long, thin wire becomes easily tangled. Excellent value for less than the cost of dinner for two.

I had heard that a lavaliere mic, even a cheap one was head and shoulders better than the camcorder mic. well, it is definitely better. But I would not say it is super great. enough of an improvement to make it worthwhile (doesn't cost much) but still would like to get better sound. Still a bit of echo and talking in a box sound. But the improvement made it worthwhile in my opinion.

        Comments about Audio-Technica ATR3350 Omnidirectional Condenser Lavalier Microphone:

        Two stars is being generous here. I bought two of them because they were inexpensive. One of them came without the battery, one of them came with the battery. There are absolutely zero instructions for it. Besides that, when all set up and ready to go -- the output levels are VERY low for a microphone. They would have been better off having no battery and relying on bias power from the device they were connecting to -- and having some sort of instructions as well in the box.the product smells like they just found some cheapo outfit to make some microphones for them and they just slapped their brand upon it and really did not care how good or bad it was.

          It's like any other mic in that price range. Not much to discuss really, it's just one of the better ones.

          It has its own power supply, which means this Mic can be used on Zoom H1 Recorder.

            I have this mic and the Rode Smart Lav. Sound-wise this one wins hands down! The Rodes is noticeably more noisy with a hum.

            I used the ATR3350 with my iPhone and the connector cable for that. Only wish the AT has a little light on it so I would know when the battery was on its last legs! I would totally pay more for that.

                  This is an amazing mic for pure voice audio to use in video slideshow creation and adding audio to movies, etc. The sound was crisp, clear, and very professional. The mic was easy to clip on to clothing and the long cord made it extra easy to reach the subject from across the room. Greatest value for the money and a real must have for any and all audio recording of voices for good, clean sound quality.

                    I use it for professional single-subject interview videos shot in a controlled environment. It'd be perfect for students, amateurs and prosumers.

                    The cord is long and cumbersome to wind after every use. It also appears delicate so I always take great care with it. The battery is a bit odd so be sure to buy a backup right away. Don't forget to switch it off when done.

                        I bought 03 to backup my Sennheiser wireless system. During the 20 years of my company, we always use good wireless systems. Now with so much interference are changing our minds. It is a very cheap microphone, a good quality. We have several different types of microphones. Audio-Technica has a good line of microphones. We are pleased.

                              Decent quality for under $. I like it, and use it a ton.

                                  Great performance. I would normally write "For the price" consider how economical the ATR3350 in but as a mic for recording it works perfectly.

                                  I WOULD NOT RECOMMEND FOR A LIVE SOUND APPLICATION! but I would say that about any Omnidirectional Lavalier as I would recommend a cardioid pattern with more directionality.
