Designed to mount comfortably to your ear, the HM172 from Lectrosonics is an omnidirectional microphone with a 5-pin TA5F connector suitable for use with Lectrosonics transmitters. Its neutral profile and comfortable, out-of-the-way design renders the microphone useful for many applications, such as lectures, theatrical presentations, and broadcast studio operations.
With a frequency response of 50 Hz to 20 kHz and the ability to withstand sound pressure levels of 125 dB, the microphone is aptly suited for the human voice. It operates at a bias voltage of 2 to 9V.
Its cable is designed to run behind your neck for better concealment, while a perspiration ring on its boom helps keep the capsule dry in many situations. Both the earpiece and the boom are flexible, allowing you to comfortably position the microphone to garner the maximum amount of gain while simultaneously minimizing breath noise.
Included with the microphone are two windscreens and a cable retention clip. Also provided is a replaceable HF peak cap to curtail energy at the highest points of the frequency range, thus helping with excessive sibilant information and other vocal mishaps.
