Shure Dual MOTIV MVL reviews

Dual MOTIV MVL Lavalier Microphone and Two-Person Interview Kit is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 3.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is a great piece of tech! I love this mic! It's sound quality is really good and every time I think that it is going to pick up background noise (like traffic on the Interstate or wind) I have been pleasantly surprised. Another customer asked to see the back of the mic so I included this pic.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great with DSLR/Mirrorless interview setups! This mic sounds very good for how small it is. Low end is acceptably full sounding and not overblown at all, the midrange is definitely the focus and seems to be detailed enough for the use-case and the high end doesn't get lost even if it's slightly toned down than I expected. It's not sibilant at all as far as I can tell. It sounds very well-rounded and is easily manipulated in post to add compression and EQ if desired. A great all-round solution. I use a pair of these with my Fuji XH-1 and other Fuji cameras for on-site interviews with two individuals and have tested them on Sony cameras and Panasonics as well, they all work in the same manner. I bought the Shure�Dual MOTIV MVL Lavalier Microphone and Two-Person Interview Kit) and CRUCIALLY, to be able to use this dual mic setup with a DSLR camera with a 1/8" TRS input, you MUST buy a TRRS to TRS adapter (Also, picked up the�Rode�SC3 3.5mm TRRS to TRS Adapter for smartLav to accomplish this. I also purchased a 6ft female to male headphone extension as the length of the mic cables isn't exactly super long. YMMV, might need to purchase a ten foot or more depending.. This combo allows you to use your DSLR or mirrorless with a 3.5mm mic input just as you would a normal microphone. The audio sums to stereo however, and you don't have the option to separate it from your video unless you're recording to an external source. However, this might just be the solution you're looking for and if so, this combo is THE most cost effective way to obtain better audio. The included headphones are really terrible though, best used strictly for monitoring levels if you need it. I prefer to carry a much smaller package around with me (Sennheiser IE80's or simple iPhone headphones) on the sole principle that a giant headphone setup for my use-case is just overkill and takes up a lot of room in the bag. I asked BH to upload further detailed pictures of the SC6 module which I've included here.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Doesnt work as advertised, but works in other applications So let me preface by stating that I bought the two person interviewer package to use with my mirrorless camera. My fianc and I have a YouTube channel and we require direct, on-person sound in noisy environments. To that end, the package works great. The mics are pretty sensitive, have a good frequency response (if a bit light on the low end frequencies), and they pick up everything being omnidirectional so a little post is always needed. We recently upgraded our preamp so heres a look at the old/new setup for reference: Old Signal chain: MVL pair Rode SC6 Rode SC3 TRS to TRS extension (10ft) Camera mic input. New Signal Chain: MVL singles TRRS extension cable (10ft) Rode SC3 Beachtek DXA Micro Pro L&R Camera mic input The new setup deletes the SC6 multi input box and is a more controlled of signal flow so that we can better separate the audio between us rather than rely on one gain control for two different sources. (Im usually louder than she is at the same distance from the mic) It also allows us to use studio condensors that we have laying around due to its +48v Phantom power, but Im getting off track here.. Both setups work great. My biggest issue is that this kit is advertised to work with the iPhone app. The issue is that ONE mic WILL work with the iphone, but the pair will NOT. I emailed Shure about this and they claim that its possible that the iPhone just cant supply enough juice thorough the Lightning port to power both mics properly. They also claim that they actually dont even sell this particular package, this is a package thrown together by the vendor (in this case, B&H) and its likely no one tested this product to ensure that it actually works as intended. I would have loved to have the option to use both mics on my phone, that would have been beneficial and easier at times, and is part of the reason I went with this rather than just buying the lavs separately. This is a package is sold as a two-person interviewer kit. However, be aware that in its advertised form for use with a phone, both mics wont work. In other forms though such as putting these to use for camera work, provided youve got the inputs itll work just fine. So TLDR; For off-camera audio, theyre great. Just dont expect to be able to use the kit as sold for BOTH mics, that just wont work as confirmed by the manufacturer. 4 stars for quality, function. 3 stars for delivering what was advertised.
