  • Fostex AR101 Audio Retriever

    The Fostex AR101 Audio Retriever is designed to improve the audio quality of an iPhone 4/4S, 4th generation iPod touch or 2nd/3rd generation iPad when recording audio with video. This interface is ideal for ENG purposes and any other applications where higher quality audio recordings are required. A USB to 30-pin cable is included to make the connection. It will also work with an iPhone 5 or iPod touch 5th generation, but requires a separately sold Apple Lightning to 30-pin adapter. Or, use it as an audio interface for a PC by connecting a separately sold mini USB to USB type A cable.

    The interface features two microphone/line inputs for the included condenser microphones or other user-supplied microphones. A rotary encoder and LED level meter allow easy adjustment of the input level of each channel, pan, headphone out and more. A headphone monitor output allows you to monitor the input and playback signal.

    The interface doesn't require a battery, since it's powered by your connected device via USB. When feeding power via micro USB, the unit also feeds power to the connected iOS device. The chassis features a cold shoe rail for mounting various camera rigs. A device holder is included which can be used in portrait or landscape mode, and features screw holes on the horizontal and vertical sides for the included hand grip or separately-sold tripod or other standard support.

  • 2 x Polsen OLM-10 Omnidirectional Lavalier Microphone

    The Polsen OLM-10 Omnidirectional Lavalier Microphone is an all-in-one solution for recording hands-free audio to both channels of your camcorder or DSLR, as well as most devices with a 3.5mm mic-level input that cannot supply phantom power. It is a self-powered clip-on electret condenser mic designed for accurate voice reproduction in home and video webcasting applications such as presentations, interviews, dictation, and corporate video. The microphone's small, 21-mm long lightweight body allows for discrete placement with the included tie-clip while its 20-foot long cable gives you ample distance from your recording device.

    Featuring a 3.5mm dual-mono TRS output connector, the mic sends audio to both the left and right channels of your recorder. Thanks to its omnidirectional polar pattern, the OLM-10 provides a uniform response that will not cause the bass-boosting proximity effect common with cardioid patterns, while allowing you to move freely without off-axis rejection causing a drop in volume. The in-line power switch allows you to quickly mute the microphone as well as preserve battery life when not in use. A windscreen for reduced noise and plosives, 1/4" adapter, and LR44 battery are included.

  • Auray WLF-OLM10-2 Foam Windscreens for Polsen OLM-10 & OLM-20 Lavalier Microphone (2-Pack)

    The Auray WLF Series Foam Windscreens are designed to reduce unwanted vocal pops and broadband wind noise with minimal high frequency loss.

    This WLF-OLM10-2 Foam Windscreen is designed for use with Polsen & Pearstone OLM-10 and OLM-20 Lavalier Microphones. The density of the specialty acoustic foam is optimized to help protect the microphone element from air bursts without muffling the sound.

    When used on the OLM-10 or OLM-20, these windscreens are effective in minimizing wind noise and plosive sounds. They are most effective in calm to light breeze conditions (0-7mph), and can be used indoors for protection against drafts caused by air-conditioners. Users can generally expect a notable reduction in wind noise, with very slight dampening of high frequencies. For most applications, this is a worthwhile exchange.

    The WLF-OLM10-2's foam is hypoallergenic and helps prevent moisture and dirt from damaging your microphone. These windscreens are designed specifically to fit the OLM-10.

    The WLF-OLM10-2 Foam Windscreens are an effective solution for basic wind protection.

    Fits:
    • Pearstone OLM-10
    • Polsen OLM-10, OLM-20
