How is the cable noise when touching or walking with these on, do the mics pick up handling noise from the cables?
Asked by: Cory
Cable noise from physical touch should be minimal, if present, when using the SonicPresence SP15 PRO On-Ear XLR Binaural Microphone for Spatial Audio. Implementing clips to secure the cable in one or two places can help minimize or eliminate cable noise if required.
