Tram TR50 Overview

  • 1Description

The Tram TR50 is a professional omnidirectional electret condenser lavalier microphone with a low-profile design resulting in low visibility. The TR50 features an integrated power supply and has a frequency response that enhances the character and frequencies associated with speech. It can be powered by the included 357 battery or with phantom power.

The polar pattern provides a generous pick up response at the direct and off-axis sections of the microphone capsule. This enhances sensitivity and minimizes noise associated with movement, wind and clothing contact. The TR50 features minimum sound coloration and is available in a variety of connectors, this version features a standard 3-pin XLR connection for standard operation with any mic-pre.

    Tram TR50 Reviews

    TR50 - Omnidirectional Lavalier Condenser Microphone with XLR Connector (Black) is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 25.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Professional audio for the serious user Let me first off just say that I am NOT an audio expert, but I do have a sense for sound and I have been very interested in being able to produce high quality video productions with high quality sound.I first tried a cheaper lav for just $ and as you would expect, its sound was sooo bad. It was low quality, noisy, and just sounded as if you were inside a box or something.After watching a couple of online courses on audio for video production, I soon realized that I need high quality gear if I want to be taken seriously. As I learned, No one cares when the sound is good, but everyone has a problem with bad sound.I researched intensivly on great lavalier microhpones because I really wanted something that is used in Television and that is robust and powerful.I soon learned that one lavalier microphone used in the online courses I had watched, was Tram TR50 (this one I purchased) and I quickly bought this one.I bought from B&H because they were the only one who seemed trustworthy in my eyes, and who had this TR50 in XLR hardwired. At first I had some internal noise problem and I thought I had gotten a bad one(I used it with Zoom H4n recorder which I hihgly recommend due to its awesome phantom power, better than its predecessors) but I quickly got this handled by using the Zoom H4n with batteries instead of cable.The sound this little fella produces is amazing. It is sooo tiny in size, smaller than one inch in size, and still, it produces ten times better sound than a huge and cheap lav does.It comes with great cable management so you won't have to conk so much which is great for newbies like myself. I record with 60-70 in recording level and the sound is awesome and it really has that dialogue-sound to it that I have been wanting for so long.Once you go Pro Lav you can't (and will never want to) go back to on-video mics or cheap lavs. I highly recommend this for anyone who want professional audio; and remember- your audience won't notice when you have excellent audio but they will always notice and get annoyed by your bad audio.If you want to be taken seriously on camera, this is one of the best lavs to get for its great price. I recommend it to anyone who, just like me, want to be able to get professional audio on a small budget.Thanks once again B&H for your awesome customer service, fast delivery and awesome collection of products.Best regards,MaxTheMarketer from Sundsvall in Sweden.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Workhorse lav I've only used Sony and Sennheisers before and this is great. Neat small and rugged carry case for the lav and all accessories. Run on small calculator type batteries if no Phantom power is available. Great sound. Shot on a building where there was cell phone equipment and the camera front rifle mic was buzzing furiously (From a Sony dsr-450). The Tram had no problem at all and there was no interference at all. Practice with yourself using the vampire clips before puncturing your interviewees. They are good but its easy to stab ones self or wreck clothes.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from It's a TRAM I've worked around these units for years and they make for good sound. It's amazing how resistant to clothing rustle and other anomalies they are. I've used cheaper wired lavs and if they are not positioned just so, they can drive you insane trying to get clean audio. However, as bullet-proof as these units appear, the first one B & H shipped me was a dud. It seemed to only work when it felt like it. But I requested a replacement and, of course, B & H responded with their usual fantastic customer service. The second unit worked like it should (or at least it has so far). I'm sure it will be fine. As an aside, I do like the newer style phantom capsule. On the older versions, you could insert the 357 (LR44) battery the wrong direction. It appears they've keyed the opening so that can't happen anymore. You still need a T-pin to remove it, but that part is almost romantically a Tram feature.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Microphone for Interviews I'm using this microphone for filming and videoing one-on-one interviews, and I've been very happy so far with the TR50. It sits very well against clothing (I use the clip-on piece). The sound is very clear, crisp and clean, there is very little clothe sound interference, and doesn't seem to pick up small cable movements. It does pick up ambient noise, so try to minimize those. The microphone is surprisingly light, so doesn't drag down light fabric clothing. The carrying case is very compact and lightweight. Yup, so far, it's great.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exceptional Sound, But Low Output We use a pair of these for capturing dialog for educational video. The output is fairly low, so the camera and mixer self-noise become more of an issue. I have used these for voice-over work as well. Will work in a pinch, mounted on a small foam block using the vampire clips. Stuffed the other end of the block in between the knobs of my small-format mixer and let the talent do his thing. The sound came out clear and intelligible, but with nowhere near the punch and authority of a large diaphragm condenser. No problem, it was not designed to produce that sound, and did quite well regardles.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic Mic. Worth EVERY penny. This microphone delivers INCREDIBLE sound quality. The accessories that come with it enable it to be used for a variety of positions. It's hard to see it with a clip, which is fantastic. What beats all however is the sound quality. VERY crisp and clear, as if the person was right in front of you. It's not the cheapest, but definitely worth every penny if you want EXCEPTIONAL audio quality.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from 20 years of consistancy I picked up a second TR-50 to use as backup to my trusty 20 year old original. Perfect match, all the same accessories. 4 stars only because of the low-ish output level.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Old Faithful This thing is a workhorse. After 30+ countries and years of use, it's still working perfectly. Great sound too. I bought a second just in case.

    Are the mic cords long enough for a side-by-side interview (with a Digital Audio Recorder hidden behind personalities)? Or do you recommend use with a wireless transmitter? Thanks!
    Asked by: Frederick H.
    Probably. Mine is about eight feet long with an XLR connection that I plug into the camera. It's easy to hide. I just add a length of XLR cable when I need to be farther back with the camera. If you're going to a separate audio recorder it should be no problem.

    Does the Tram TR50 mic really fit loosely in the clips, as some have reported? (I just want to make sure whether it's common to the design or if some just received a dud.)
    Asked by: Dale
    Mine fits snuggly but it's still pretty new.

    is it wired for new lectrosonics SMQv transmitters?
    Asked by: Anonymous
    The Tram TR50 is available with connectors for most common wireless transmitters. This particular version features an XLR connector for use with field recorders and similar devices that support XLR connection.

    Will this work with a Sony PCM-M10 or Olympus LS-14? Thank you!
    Asked by: Harlan R.
    Hello. It doesn't appear that either recorder has an XLR jack, only 3.5mm (or 1/8 ). Technically you could use the TRAM mic, but it would require an XLR female to 3.5mm male adapter to convert the TRAM's XLR male plug to 3.5mm. Make sense?
