Polsen MO-IDL2 overview

  • 1Description

The Polsen MO-IDL2 is a dual-mic setup consisting of two lavalier condenser microphones wired to a custom cable with a DSLR/smartphone switch. It offers accurate speech capture of two subjects for podcasting, vlogging, video and television production, interviews, and public address. Each electret condenser element produces a 20 Hz to 20 kHz frequency response, which is honed to complement the sound of the human voice. The omnidirectional polar pattern ensures responsive sound pick-up from all directions and avoids the bass boost caused by proximity effect.

An in-line switch enables the MO-IDL2 to be easily compatible with DSLRs, camcorders, PCs, and mobile devices. Affix the supplied windscreens to reduce wind noise, breath noise, and plosives. With an attached Y-cable nearly 20' long, the mics allow you to maintain a close-up position while pulling your video capture device back for long-distance shots.

The included 1/4" TS adapter facilitates proper connectivity to an unbalanced mic input, as commonly found on portable PA systems. Use the tie clips to attach the mics to your subjects' clothing; lapels and collars are commonly used. For convenience in storage and transport, the MO-IDL2 comes with a carry pouch.

Dual Lavalier Microphones
Record two subjects simultaneously to your DSLR, camcorder, smartphone, or computer via two microphone capsules, which are wired to one 3.5mm TRRS mini jack. The microphones may be affixed to the talent using the supplied tie clips for discreet positioning and elevated sound quality while leaving the subjects' hands free.
Vocal-Tailored Frequency Response
Each electret condenser capsule's wide frequency response of 20 Hz to 20 kHz is customized to complement the human voice. Whether recording in the field or working with an audience indoors, the tone and dynamic range of the MO-IDL2 yield an accurate and natural sound.
Omnidirectional Polar Pattern
By utilizing an omnidirectional polar pattern, each capsule of the MO-IDL2 is able to capture sound from all around it. Its 360° responsiveness maximizes consistency in volume even when the subject turns away from the mic. It also eliminates the proximity effect that can occur when the mic gets too close to the talent.
Function Switch
A clearly labeled in-line switch allows you to switch modes. In Camera/On position, the microphones will work with any device using a 3.5mm TRS plug, ensuring compatibility with DSLRs, camcorders, and computers, and the included battery powers the microphones. Alternatively, in Phone/Off position, the mics will work with 3.5mm TRRS plugs found on mobile devices such as tablets and smartphones, and are operational via power from your smartphone.
Long Attached Cable
Each microphone's attached cable features a 4' run to the switch, where a single cable extends 15.7' to the 3.5mm jack. This Y-cable design allows sufficient slack for placing the mics up close while your camera or smartphone is kept at a distance.
Tie Clips & Foam Windscreens
Use the supplied tie clips to securely and inconspicuously attach the mics to clothing for proper on-camera appearances. Handily reduce problematic wind noise and plosives by fitting the included foam windscreens atop the mic capsules.

    Polsen MO-IDL2 reviews

    MO-IDL2 Dual Lavalier Condenser Microphones with DSLR/Smartphone Switch is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 3.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from its not posible turn off one of the mics i liked the mic but i get a little bit frustrated because it`s not possible to use only one mic... i thought that i could choose if i would use the two mics, or only one, depending on my needs. But it`s not possible use just one mic - and let the other off, so, i suggest you check if this is what you really want.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth it! I just got this in and had it hooked up to my 5d mkiv. It works and sounds great right into the camera. You can't beat it for the price. I'm assuming the included battery is to give it some power as I noticed I only had to have the in camera audio at +6. I didn't hear any noise at this level and the mics sounded pretty good. It comes with all your needed accessories and fits into the included pouch. There is a bit of wires in this set so it would be messy if you couldnt tie it all up when packing it away. Luckily each lav and the main cord have a Velcro strap attached to take care of that. That helps a lot! The cords are long enough for using it in real situations and you can also use this to record audio directly onto your phone but I personally do not need it for that. I have some wireless lavs but it is a process to set up compared to something like this. Just plug it in, set the levels and go. I really like it and it exceeds my expectations especially at this price point. This will be a great addition to my wireless systems when For certain scenarios. The only thing I would have to say that I don't prefer is that there may be times you are just recording yourself or one person and only need one lav to be active. Unfortunately both lavs will be powered on. The work around I found is to just dual lav yourself. If not, you will have one active mic dangling around picking up a signal. It would have been great to have a on/off switch for each mic. For the price it's not a deal breaker but it would have been a nice touch. Other than that it's excellent for vlogging, voice overs, or single or dual talking head projects. A must buy.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Wire length odd Just wish wire length between microphones was longer than it is so two individuals could be further apart. Overall length of wire is excellent and allows for good distance between camera and interviewees, but I’d like greater distance between interviewees. Sounds clean and has a nice range of frequencies in the sound.
