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. Well suited to wireless applications, the mic features a 4.5' cable available in a variety of connectors for direct integration with bodypack transmitters. This model features a locking 3.5mm connector wired for use with Sennheiser transmitters and other compatible devices.
This version of the TR50 is wired with a positive bias which means that, in addition to being powered by your wireless transmitter, it can also be used for wired XLR applications by plugging into the TR79+ power supply (available separately). The TR79+ accepts external phantom power or uses internal battery power. 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, and carrying case are also included.
