Polsen PL-5 overview

  • 1Description

The Polsen PL-5 is a replacement microphone for Polsen's ULW-16 wireless system. It is also compatible with other wireless transmitters with a standard 1/8" microphone input, or devices that have a 1/8" (3.5 mm) input with plug-in power.

Featuring an omnidirectional polar pattern, the PL-5 is optimized to accurately capture speech. It provides clear and natural sound ideal for ENG, EFP, and DSLR video applications. Because omnidirectional microphones are less susceptible to wind noise and vocal plosives (pops) than cardioid microphones, the PL-5 is suitable for indoor or outdoor use.

The miniature 0.14" head diameter offers a variety of options for discreet microphone placement, allowing the PL-5 to be easily concealed on wardrobe or costumes without sacrificing sound quality. The PL-5 comes packaged with a tie clip for securing the mic to the talent's clothing, as well as a windscreen for further reducing wind noise and vocal plosives.

Omnidirectional Polar Pattern
The omnidirectional polar pattern is ideal for video applications and allows for head movement without affecting the sound. It also makes the microphone less susceptible to picking up wind noise and vocal plosives (pops)
Compact Size
The PL-5's miniature 0.14" head diameter provides a variety of options for discreet microphone placement. Ideal for film production as it can be easily concealed on clothing, props, in hair or a wig, or inside a collar

    Polsen PL-5 reviews

    PL-5 Mini Omnidirectional Lavalier Microphone with 1/8" (3.5 mm) Connector is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 6.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great sound, easy to conceal Get great audio for a good price with these mics and they are extremely easy to conceal. I use them with the Rycote undercover and they are a perfect combo.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good lav at a great price Used for field interviews with Tascam Dr-07mkII recorder. The .wav files are quite good across the full voice range.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Very audible hiss in my unit I tried this microphone in several recorders and there is a very audible hiss in the background to the point I'm forced to apply noise reduction to it. The mic looks tiny and lovely, but my unit is definitely unusable in a professional setting.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great LITTLE mic I bought this to accompany my Zoom H1 recorder. I spent almost as much on the mic as the recorder and am happy I did. I think it brings up the quality of the audio exponentially. The mic is small and easy to hide.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for the money Great affordable lapel mic. I use it for ceremonies on the groom. Only used it once, but so far so good.
