The gray Sanken COS-11D Omni Lavalier Microphone with Reduced Sensitivity and Hardwired Servo-Bias TA5F Connector for Lectrosonics Transmitters is a subminiature lav microphone designed to deliver clear, full-bodied sound and reliable performance, making it a popular choice among industry professionals in broadcast, TV, theater, film, videography, and more.
Engineered to meet the standards of modern digital wireless microphone systems, the COS-11D is RF shielded to eliminate interference issues and ensure a pristine audio signal. The microphone capsule features a rectangular design that sits vertically, increasing the surface area and allowing this little mic to offer a rich, full sound that outperforms many larger models.
The mic's 50 Hz to 20 kHz frequency response rolls-off extreme low end and provides accurate, transparent audio reproduction with a small presence boost in the 6 kHz area for crisp, intelligible speech. With a forgiving omnidirectional polar pattern that picks up sound in a 360° pattern, levels stay consistent, even when the subject turns away from the mic.
A water-resistant mesh screen protects against humidity, perspiration, makeup, bad weather, and other potential on-location issues, while the durable cable is also moisture-resistant and built to stay soft and pliable, even after extended use. This version of the COS-11D terminates in a TA5F connector and is wired for use with servo-bias Lectrosonics transmitters. A metal windscreen, holder clip, rubber mount, and plastic case are included.
- Lectrosonics: Works with Lectrosonics bodypack transmitters and recorders equipped with a servo-bias TA5M connector, including models in the SM and L Series as well as the UM400a, UM450, LMb, MTCR, and DBu (TA5M version) models.
- Also works with third-party wireless transmitters and portable audio recorders that are equipped to supply 3 to 10 VDC through a TA5M connector wired for servo-bias Lectrosonics compatibility.
