Microphone Madness BSM-7 Stereo Lavalier Microphone
Key Features
  • Dual Omni Elements
  • Standard Mini Plug
The Microphone Madness MM-BSM-7 is a miniature omnidirectional lavalier microphone that features dual elements for stereo capturing. The capsules measure approximately 1/4" in diameter and 1/2" in length for unobtrusive operation.

The 1/8" connection is completely compatible with microphone inputs found on MiniDiscs, Dat recorders and analog portable recorders that supply a bias voltage of 1.5 to 10 volts D.C. (also known as plug in power). The omnidirectional polar patterns are better suited for ambient capturing as the pattern provides a generous pick up area at the direct and off-axis sections of the microphone capsule. The microphone provides a signal response that features smooth mid-range, and clean high frequency response for maximum detail.

I bought it for Zoom F1. Quality is great and not far from Zoom original Lav. Above all, it solved our issue of 1 recorder recording for 2 Lavs!!! A great find and reasonably priced. B&H well informed Sales staff was a savior in recommending this stereo lavs - thank you !!!!

Better than expected

We're using this to record podcast interviews with an Olympus LS-11, which has just one mini mic jack and no XLR. It works surprisingly well -- sound quality is definitely good enough for our purposes, and this way we don't need to buy an cumbersome or expensive equipment to accommodate two mikes. A winner.

Not compatible wtih smaller cameras

I boguht this for use with the popular canon vixia for my students to film with. Turns out it is only compatible with the bigger 4 audio channel Sony HD camera which makes it of less use since more students prefer the smaller compacter cameras when they start out. Alos the quality of the microphone wasn't very good - lots of static.

Nice mics

I am using this mic set up for interviews. I ask the questions with one mic on me and the person being interviewed wears the other one. I really like the loooong cord and the fact that the cords are split for max distance between microphones.

Not real stereo

Was looking for smallest stereo mics for use with smartphone. Since they are both onmidirectional, they pick up everything. Main source gets drown in background noise. They are best used as individual mono mics. For the price, not a bad deal.

The very best interviewing tool.

Got this to do binaural field recordings. Sound quality is excellent. Build quality is excellent.One small complaint, although B&H's listing doesn't say it, the manual it came with refers to the clips as rotating and the one's I got are not. Also the cords are so long that cord management is an issue, but that's for me to resolve. I like the fact that I can seperate them that far.I currently have them taped to the backs of a set of headphones so I can record and monitor at the same time.

Good for the price.

Great because you get two microphones for the price of one if you don't need the stereo aspect. Sound is OK. Let say not bad.

question

Do these mics produce two mono signals, meaning the left mic is the left channel and the other mic is on the right channel? Or are they mixed into stereo, both mics on the right and left channel? Thanks!
Asked by: Jake F.
Each microphone is sent to a separate channel (left and right).

question

Will this work with a portable audio recorder like the Zoom H4N or the Tascam dr-40 (I think it'd need a 1/4 adapter for that one)?

question

Will this work with the Zoom h1?
Asked by: Anonymous
I use this microphone with a Sony PCM-M10 to conduct one on one interviews (one mic on the subject, the second on myself). It works best with Plug-in Power on. It should work with the Zoom H1, though if the H1 doesn't provide PiP you may want to consider a battery box like the Microphone Madness linked to below.
