Deity Microphones V.Lav Omnidirectional Lavalier Microphone with Microprocessor
Key Features
  • For Mobile Devices & Cameras
  • For Mic Transmitters & Handy Recorders
  • Pre-Polarized Condenser Capsule
  • Omnidirectional Polar Pattern
The Deity Microphones V.Lav is an omnidirectional lavalier microphone offering transparent audio capture and broad device compatibility for videographers, YouTubers, and sound recordists. With a built-in microprocessor that automatically configures its TRRS connector to work with most 3.5mm mic jacks, the V.Lav is compatible with a variety of DSLRs, camcorders, mobile devices, and portable audio recorders. Its 16.4' attached cable allows shooting at a natural distance.

The pre-polarized condenser capsule features an omnidirectional polar pattern for consistent response to sound from all directions, making it more forgiving to improper mic placement. The 50 Hz to 20 kHz frequency range allows accurate source reproduction without sonic coloration. Use the provided foam windscreen to minimize plosives, or attach the supplied faux fur windshield to reduce wind noise in outdoor environments. The V.Lav includes a tie clip and convenient carrying pouch.

Howdy. Can anyone verify that this has actually been tested with a TRRS-TRS adapter, for example for the Fuji XT-3? I have the Fuji, and I have gotten the Deity small shotgun to work with it using the adapter. The issue is how the battery is used. The Fuji does not supply plug-in power. The battery situation is rather different with the lavalier than the shotgun (which uses an internal battery charged with a USB connector). So, I am concerned to know if the batteries in this lavalier will continue to run during shooting, as they must, and for how long. Thanks a ton.
Asked by: David
Should work fine. The V.Lav uses two LR44 cell batteries, enclosed in a CNC aluminum housing along with the microprocessor chip. Battery power is only used when the V.Lav is determining how to adapt to the microphone input you've plugged it into. After the V.Lav has adapted to your device, the microphone capsule then uses the voltage from your device, and the LR44 batteries are put back to sleep. Battery Life: Up to 800 Hours

Would this work with a wireless lav system, like Sonys?
Asked by: Robbie
No it will not. For sony UWP wireless, you will have to get one that is specifically wired for to be compatible. Either a Sony branded mics or third party mics.

Will this work if the batteries are dead?

Will this work if the batteries are dead?
Asked by: Suhaib
No, the V.Lav will not work if the LR41 batteries are dead or if the batteries are not installed. The V.Lav uses battery power when it is initially connected to the mic input on your device. It uses battery power to determine how it should adapt to the device and then uses the voltage from your device to power the mic (plug-in power). Once the mic begins using power from the device, the mic's LR41 batteries are put to sleep. Although the mic does draw power from the device to operate, the LR41 batteries are needed for its initial start-up power.

I am confused as to why this mic has a TRRS jack but does not work natively with IOS devices. Directions say it requires the apple adapter to use. What's up with that?
Asked by: Thomas
As was mentioned, iPhones have not had a 3.5mm jack for that last 5 years. You would therefore need an adapter. If you are referring to an iPad that does have a headphone jack, it will work without the adapter.

Does anyone know if this lavalier works well with the Zoom H1n?
Asked by: Z
The Zoom H1n supplies plug-in power. Due to the adaptability of this device to work with both TRS and TRRS ports, no adapters should be required.
