Ambient Recording QXS 550 overview

  • 1Description

The QXS 550 Quickpole Light Boompole from Ambient Recording is a balanced boompole designed for engineering and video professionals. Built with five segments, the pole effectively delivers a better collapsed-to-extended ratio, enabling easy transportation while providing long lengths when needed. The mechanical parts are machined out of aircraft aluminum, while the 3/8” thread is made out of solid stainless steel to survive a high number of microphone changes.

The boompole features a coiled cable flow-through system with a bottom outlet that prevents cable entanglement. With an effective shielding and polyurethane insulation, this durable cabling provides high endurance while maintaining flexibility, even in temperatures as low as -40°F.

Ambient Recording QXS 550 reviews

QXS 550 Quickpole Light Boompole with Mono Cable (Coiled, Bottom Outlet) is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 1.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Quickpole is awesome! Game changer on set. This boom pole is short enough to fit in a Pelican 1510 case if you get it without the side exit extension. It doesn't fit straight up and down in the case, but fits if placed in diagonally. I work in location sound and I usually use the K-Tek 152CCR. I found myself in situations a lot of the time where the K-Tek 152 was simply too long and made my job more difficult, so I finally got this boom and used it for the first time this past weekend. The first scene we did was inside a car and it worked out perfectly! I was able to control the boom from the backseat of the car micing actors in the front seats. The pole seems built really well, the only thing I don't like which will prob work itself out as the pole gets dirtier is the ring sleeves are hard to fully tighten down all the way and are really rough on the hands if you need to quickly loosen them. I also like that the boom pole still comes with a rubber cap for the end, even without the side exit extension, very nice touch. Overall, awesome boom pole - would highly recommend to anyone looking for a really short boom for those tight spots!
