Tram TR50 Overview

The gray Tram TR50 is a miniature omnidirectional lavalier microphone designed to deliver clear speech and dialog with a natural sound that mixes well with boom microphones, making it popular among professional sound recordists working in TV, film, broadcast, videography, and more.

The mic's omnidirectional polar pattern provides a generous 360° pickup response that helps to keep levels consistent, even if the talent turns and isn't speaking directly in the direction of the capsule. The flat, upward facing design allows the mic to be easily concealed while also helping it to resist clothing and rustling noises.

The TR50 features a 40 Hz to 16 kHz frequency response with a gentle 3 to 4 dB boost in the high frequencies for added clarity with minimum sound coloration, especially helpful if the mic is hidden behind clothing or fabric. This version of the TR50 is hardwired with a positive bias, a built-in TR79+ power supply, and an XLR connector—making it well suited for a wide variety of wired applications.

The mic is powered by 12 to 48V phantom power or the button-cell battery in the power supply. A tie bar, tie tac, clip-on holder, and tape-down holder are provided to help you mic up your subject. A windscreen, cable holder, cable reel, and carrying case are also included.

XLR Connector with Phantom or Battery Powering

Compatible with a Wide Variety of Professional Audio Gear

This version of the TR50 features a 9' cable with a 3-pin male XLR connector. The mic works with mixers, cameras, camcorders, portable audio recorders, interfaces, and a wide range of audio equipment. Power is supplied via the included 1.5V button cell battery or from a 12 to 48V external phantom power source.

Professional-Quality Sound for TV, Film, Video, and More

Miniature Mic Plays Well with Other Mics

The TR50 offers a small, flat design that offers flexible positioning options while isolating the mic capsule to help resist rustling and clothing noise—especially helpful for hidden or concealed uses. The mic's clear, uncolored reproduction of speech and dialog mixes well with boom mics in post production.

Headroom for Robust Speakers and Performers

With its ability to handle SPLs up to 134 dB, the mic offers plenty of headroom for most speech and vocal applications.

Omnidirectional Polar Pattern

The forgiving omnidirectional polar pattern picks up sound from all around the mic and provides a consistent frequency response, even for off-axis sound. This helps to supply clear, intelligible speech and vocals, even when the talent isn't speaking directly toward the microphone.

Positive Bias

This version of the TR50 is wired with a positive bias and a TR79+ power supply, allowing the mic to be powered via 48V phantom power or the LR44 battery in the power supply for wired use with XLR equipment. Negative-bias versions of the TR50 do not support phantom power and can only operate on the battery-powered TR79. When recording with multiple TR50 lavs, always use models with the same bias to avoid phase-cancellation problems.

How long is the cable and will this Tram TR50 Mic work directly in a camcorder such as a Sony Z-190 — with a longer XLR cable attached?
Asked by: Jim
The cable for the TR50 is 4.5 feet long. The mic can be connected directly to the Sony camcorder or used with an additional XLR cable to extend the length. The mic requires 12 to 48V phantom power and the camera will supply it.

If you are doing a sit down interview, is there an advantage to using this wired, XLR version of the tram mic over the wireless version with the sennheiser g3/g4? Is the sound quality better with the wired mic?
Asked by: Liza
Yes there is an advantage. ALL wireless systems, regardless if price, process the audio by compressing (at Transmitter) and expanding (at Receiver). This process adversely affects audio. A wired mic, such as the Tram provides better sound quality and 100% reliability (as long as it stays plugged in).

Can I use this with a Zoom H5? If so how?

Can I use this with a Zoom H5? If so how?
Asked by: David
You will need a TRS-to-XLR adapter. These are common. Turn on phantom power for the H5 inputs. Also confirm that turning on phantom power in the H5 will not cause damage to the XLR inputs of, for instance, a camera to which you might feed that audio signal. This is a warning related to the F4. Can't say so for the H5, but you don't want to learn that the hard way.
