The RØDE Lavalier Microphone is a quality lavalier with an omnidirectional polar pattern and condenser element well suited for general speech pickup in sermons, presentations, instruction, interviews, etc. The microphone's cable terminates in a proprietary MiCon connection that allows you to select from a number of optional adapters. This makes it usable with virtually any wireless bodypack transmitter. The microphone ships in a protective storage case and includes a waterproof pop-filter, wind-muff, and clip.

RODE LAV Reviews
A must have for Viola mics
What an enormous improvement we had when we switched to this mic for our Viola player. It was better than the Band we had before. If you are looking for the best sound for your string instrument, this is it!
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.
Poor build quality
This only gets two stars for me but they do sound great. I've had two of these for around two years now. I have bought 4 replacement cables and three replacement micon adapters (actually 5 micons, two I sent back as they didn't thread into a sony pack, despite labeled as the correct ones.) I work in news and documentary so use wireless lavs almost daily. These just aren't built to last. I keep very good care of my equipment, but with general knocks and strain from use, these need a new part every 4-5 months. For the same price (almost) go for a Tram or Sanken. Never have issues with these. I liked the modular concept of micon adapters, but it's clearly an engineering issue. These will break on you and sooner than you will be expecting... Plus side, small mic capsule, sounds good, nice accessories, cheap.
I work as a Breaking News Stringer for TV News, and am usually in noisy environments. This lav provided clean sound in most situations.
A returning customer
This mic was purchased for the InvisiLab system to be used on a TV show and our initial tests are positive so far.
Moulded connector at mic end of cable
So far I've had no problems with this Lav mic, but the microphone I got is a little different from what's pictured in one respect: The microphone is moulded to the cable, rather than having the detachable Micon connector at the mic end. This is probably a good thing, as I imagine it makes the connection stronger, but it would be nice if the picture was accurate.
Love the sound!
Of all the lav mics I own, this one is my favorite. The sound is crisp without being too crisp and full but not muddy....I think of this as a goldilocks mic - especially for my needs. This one holds its own against mics costing hundreds more (ask me how I know!).... highly recommended.
Awesome mic, super compact and well built
Bought this to go with our Saramonic UWMic9 transmitters, to replace the rather large ones included in the kit. The Micon adapter is a really great design, allowing you to adapt these mics to different body packs and uses. Gives them a bit of future proofing and flexibility to be used with wireless packs, or hardwired with a separate XLR adapter. Really impressed with how this sounds - definitely recommend them!
