    Rode LAVALIER reviews

    Lavalier Microphone is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 30.
    Rated 1 out of 5 by from If it looks flimsy, that's because it is Just flimsy overall and connections at both ends of the cable are prone to shorting, loosening, crackling, popping, etc. there are many choices for this money and I wish I had kept any other brand than this. It's affected several jobs where I thought I was getting wireless interference and then nailed it down to very strange cable handling/electronic noise no matter how the mic is attached to a person. Sound is unusable 30% of the time so why use this mic? This noise also happens when THE MIC IS WIRED TO AN XLR which is obviously infuriating and makes this a once in a while toy at best.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not good for films I used these lavaliere mics for film productions. I would say that the microphone itself has a nice sound quality. The problem is the build quality. The micon connection is too weak and sensitive, and after a couple of fast actions by the actor, it broke just above the connection. I purchased a new cable that cost me about 32 euros and I had exactly the same problem as soon as I went back to the set. The second problem is that the length of the cable is 1.2 meters. These mics were promoted that are made for movies and thats why Rode created invisilav. The problem of the cable being so short is that in films, usually the sound recordist installs the transmitter down on the actor's leg in order to hide it from the camera. So even in the case of a short actor, the cable from down his leg to up his chest, is very stretched causing problems to the sound, as the micon connection is too weak, and also brings problems to the actor in his performance due to the uncomfortable length of the cable. I sent this report to Rode, and their answer was to get a 3m cable. And I did so. The result was that cable broke again in the first take of the scene. These mics are completely useless for films

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Muffled Sound, Returned for Sanken I was excited to pick up this Rode Lavalier after waiting for it to be released. The price was attractive .... Essentially, I'm not pleased with the tonal clarity or high-end frequency capture of this lav. I used it on a shoot this evening and all I can say is that the audio didn't have the crispness or clarity I've heard on the Sanken COS11D series. The packaging is nice, the included waterproof case is solid, and the build quality seems up to par. The basic pop filter arrived unglued from the plastic housing causing excessive noise as the mic element was floating around internally. I don't think this is a good design if you expect to use the pop filter. We ended up having to use the on-camera mic audio to get the final product out the door which was very unfortunate.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Microphone! Firstly I have no connections with RODE as a company and I bought my own mic system due to the quality of previous RODE products I already own.I have a project that needs two identical lapel microphones, now the cheaper option was to buy another Sennheiser or AKG but to be honest I have not been very impressed with either lapel microphone.Recently I have been buying into the RODE brand of microphones and after watching the look around the RODE factory video recently I was further convinced this was the road to go down.First thing that strikes you is the sheer size of the RODE lapel mic, it's by all accounts subminiature measuring 12mm x 4mm. The best news is the fact that it screws off the cable, this is very refreshing as 99% of the lapel marketplace are bonded on to the cable making it impossible to replace.Secondly and just as important to me is the type of cable used, it's a 1.5mm thin Kevlar reinforced low noise cable, and I can vouch for the low noise I used this mic for my studio inserts for the Panasonic AC160 review.The third best part about the RODE system is the variety of end connectors you can get for this lapel microphone, I use phantom powered XLR connectors on the whole hard wired to the camcorder.On the occasion when I need to use a radio transmitter I have the Sennheiser 3.5 mini jack connector and there is a further 6 connectors for various makers transmitters which is in my opinion very forward thinking indeed.A truly modular system and extension cables as well, yes you can extend your mic cable with a 3 metre Micon cable for a further xx.The microphone is an omni-directional polar pattern 60Hz to 18KHz and a sound pressure level of 94dB. I can hold my hand up and tell you that I am delighted with my two microphones, they come in an anti-trauma waterproof case and as you can see wind puffs are also part of the kit.For xxx per microphone kit the RODE system is the best on the sub-miniature marketplace and you will be hard pressed to find a more versatile microphone system on the marketplace.RODE are a very impressive forward thinking microphone manufacturer and every microphone I own which is now six, the sound from all six microphones are fantastic and quality at a price guarenteed not to break the bank.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great sub miniature for the money. I bought this Mic after deciding against purchasing a Sennheiser wireless. I've worked with a lot of wirelesses and this mic beats the sound quality of any affordable wireless lavs stock mic by leaps and bound. Much better range. Mixes really well with the NTG-3. My go to for situations that would normally need a wireless lav is to use the Rode Lav and strap a Zoom Handy recorder to the talent and sync the track to slate. Cost much less than any decent wireless and is much more reliable and works from ANY DISTANCE! Waterproof case and accessories are great but make sure to get the appropriate MicCon connector as this wasn't included. Small enough to hide behind a Bic Pen.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Wont withstand heavy use I bought a set of two of these for one-man-band productions. The lav cable and micron connectors are very weak. The connections will break internally and cause the mics to pop, cut out, and eventually stop working. I've been through 4 lav wires in two years, which seems on par with what others are reporting. Overall the sound quality is great and the kit works well, but if you're looking for something that will withstand the test of time, you might want to consider a different brand.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from As good as the competition I use this with a Zoom H1 and a 5DMKII. The results are very good and easlily on par with Tram mikes I've used for many years for broadcast television. I also plan to use it with a Sennheiser wireless radio system. The Rode 3.5mm jack connecting into the Zoom H1 made a horrible crackling noise. I unplugged the jack slightly to its first stop and the connection then sounded consistantly clean. This is most likely an H1/Rode compatability problem not specific to either product. For more serious DSLR work I would suggest using a recorder with an XLR connector. Being able to use so many micon connectors is a big positive of this product. The H1 has enough power to run the Rode Lav. The foam mike cover arrived half unglued from its mount. The design of the foam windjammer and rubber mount isn't very good because if you want to remove the foam cover it's very easy to pull the foam piece off its rubber mount that slips over the mike head. I pulled the foam off entirely and will oneday attempt to glue it back properly. I used the mike upside down and didn't get any breathing rumble and use the excellent furry wind jammer outdoors. I bought the 3m cable as an accessory. Be aware that this is not an extension cable. It can only be used instead of the 1.5 m cable provided. The micon connections appear NOT to be very robust. I was very careful not to cross-thread the connection. Best to leave the cable permanently screwed onto the mike head. Overall, I like the sound of the mike and think the package is good value. If you're seeking a lav. mike with more mounting options besides a tie clip, then go for a Tram. One star off for the poor foam wind cover.
