Great pro lav mic

By Russ

Date: 2021-10-10

A great sounding lav mic I use on productions here in Hollywood. Small, easy to mount on clothing , with a full sound range. A great addition to my sound package.

These are the best lavalier mics I've used so far. Low self noise, and low handling noise. I thought these were better for hiding under clothes than the Countryman B6.

Great mic! Great price

I got this mic on deal zone day. It was a great price and now after using the mic I'm so glad I got it for that cheap. It produces a great sound. I was surprised at the low amount of ambient noise taken in. I used it on talent in busy streets and it picked up mostly just my talents voice. All the extras it comes with is great, the windscreen, the pin connector for clothes, the clip, and the rubber pouch to help with ruffling noise. By far the best Lavalier mic I've used so far.

A great mic and a great deal from B and H.

A great upgrade from my original Sennheiser lav. I would recommend to a friend.

A great little mic

By Mike

I just want to say this is an awesome little mic. I've owned one for years and I've always enjoyed its sound, and frequency response. Especially convenient is the alligator clip which aids in concealment on most bras. Push up bras still present a challenge. I felt compelled to offer my review as another customer had written something negative. It has to be that operator error was at issue in his case. Anyway, a big thumbs up from a professional sound mixer.

question

I bought this mic for use with me Sony URXP03 wireless transmitter and it isn't working. Did I get the right one?
Asked by: Robert
If it didn't say for use with Sony than it will not work. Both Sony and Sennheiser are 3.5mm connectors. But they are not the same the same is true if you buy a Countryman which makes great mic's for about every connector out there. If it's a Sony make sure the mic says for Sony. The same is trued with Sennheiser.
