    Rycote INV-7 reviews

    INV-7 InVision Microphone Suspension for Stand and Boompole Mounting is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 33.
    Rated 1 out of 5 by from not worth the money this was probably one of the worst pieces of gear i could have spent money on. despite being an over-priced piece of plastic, the knob does not keep enough tension on it to remain in position, with or without a mic in it. i've pulled it apart and put it back together again and cinched down on the screw, but a few moves up or down and it collapses again. for a few dollars more, purchase one of Rode's pistol grips and you'll be able to use the mic in more than one fashion, either hand held or on the end of a boom. for my money, that's a better option. sorry rycote, i'm a big fan of many of your other products, but this one fails my test.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Well made, flexible design. I got a pair of these for location recording use with Schoeps mics. Looking for a shock mount that was more 'finish friendly' on the Schoeps than the standard Schoeps shock mounts. (The Nextel bodies are easy to scratch.) While I like these better, the clips are very tight and there is a slight ridge from the mould that would mar the finish on the mics. After some work with 400-grit sandpaper to smooth them, they work well. Recommended overall, and a pretty good value.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Makes all the difference When I just started out doing location sound on web shoots, I had a Pearstone shock mount that came with one of the B&H kits. I was gentle with the boom, but still noticed some occasional handling noise. After doing some reading online, I decided to replace the Pearstone with the InVision. It's such a ridiculous difference, I wish I hadn't waited so long. Not only is it significantly easier to switch out mics, but it's also quieter, which is paramount. There's really nothing left to say. This is a legitimate upgrade without the usual price hikes that are associated with pro upgrades.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from expensive, but effective I bought this for use with my Audix SCX1-HC and Oktava MK-012 microphones. The design is very light, flexible plastic. It feels flimsy, but time will tell if it is durable. I had to move one of the mount clips to shorten the distance between them, so my mics would fit. The INV-7 does not come with a hex wrench, but fortunately I had one. Considering what it is made of, I feel this item is expensive. However, it does what it is supposed to go, and once adjusted, it is a good fit for my microphones.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from One of the Best Suspensions Ever! I've been using my INV-7 for a long time now, probably since they were first released, so maybe 5 or 6 years now... And over that time it has performed amazingly. For sure the quietest suspesion I have ever used. I use it mainly with my Schoeps CMC6/41 setup on the end of a 10' K-Tek carbon fiber pole with internal cabling. The Schoeps is a fairly light mic to begin with and once I replaced the original Rycote, rubber, pistol grip, heavy mount that I was using, a lot of handling noise disapeared. As well as a lot of wieght! Now after all that time, I have finally broke one of the lyres and need to get some replacement lyres. Not having to buy a whole new mount is truly one of the best features! That's just increadible and the price has pretty much stayed the same as when I bought mine a few years back. A great system for sure and very durable! I can't recomend this enough.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Way better than anything else . . . . Toss your old suspension mounts, this is the must have product. Finally got to use them in a live concert setting today and all rumble just disappeared. Everything else I have used, including Neumann shock mounts, had some rumble leak through. I'm not saying they're perfect, but they sure as heck are a lot better than what's ever in second place. Getting rid of low frequency noise just makes your mikes sound better and cleaner. So, are you still reading this? You ought to be ordering one for every mike you normally use.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Small and Flexible I use the INV-7 with a an Audix SCX1/HC Microphone and Polsen boom and it works perfectly for me. Minimizes most if not all boom handling noise. You can push the grips toward each other to make room for the Audix's windscreen. The low profile allows you to get this thing pretty close to your talent without upsetting your DP/Camera op. Won't crowd your pack either!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from It's Quieter vs. Rubber Band shockmount I had been using a cheap shock mount. Then I upgraded my dialog mic (Audix SCX1) and started hearing rumbling due to handling noise transmitted to the mic through my cheap shock mount. Changing to this mount, along with an XLR cable upgrade, and attaching the cable to the supplied clip, along with a bit more care in booming, completely silenced the rumble.
