Is the cable microphonic? I'm used to the DPA lavs where you can run your fingers up and down the cable and can't hear it. Does this mic exhibit the same quality?

question

Any tips on storing the MKE1. Because the wire is so thin it can easily get tangled up while storing, even when you are careful. Anyone have best practices they can share for storing?
Asked by: Jason
Wrap the cable like you would a mic cable, over/under.
