Polsen OLM-10 Overview

The Polsen OLM-10 Omnidirectional Lavalier Microphone is an all-in-one solution for recording hands-free audio to both channels of your camcorder or DSLR, as well as recording devices with a 3.5mm mic-level input that cannot supply phantom power. It is a self-powered clip-on electret condenser mic designed for accurate voice reproduction in home and video webcasting applications such as presentations, interviews, dictation, and corporate video. The microphone's small, 21-mm long lightweight body allows for discrete placement with the included tie-clip while its 20-foot long cable gives you ample distance from your recording device.

Featuring a 3.5mm dual-mono TRS output connector, the mic sends audio to both the left and right channels of your recorder. Thanks to its omnidirectional polar pattern, the OLM-10 provides a uniform response that will not cause the bass-boosting proximity effect common with cardioid patterns, while allowing you to move freely without off-axis rejection causing a drop in volume. The in-line power switch allows you to quickly mute the microphone as well as preserve battery life when not in use. A windscreen for reduced noise and plosives, 1/4" adapter, and LR44 battery are included.

question

If I use two OLM-10 microphones connected to a single camcorder via a Y connector, will there be any feedback issues? I know that purchasing one OLM-20 will not result in feedback, but I would prefer to purchase two OLM-10 microphones if there is no feedback issues. Thanks!
Asked by: Anonymous
Using a Y connection is NOT recommended. The results will probably result in an audio track that is very distorted or over-modulated. Use a small mixer: The Azden CAM-3 3-Channel Mic Mixer allows you to add and mix sound from three Azden wireless or hard wired microphone sources simultaneously.Input Connections: -------------------------Input 1 and 2: 3.5mm MonoInput 3: 3.5mm Stereo ------------------------Output Connectors: 1 x 3.5mm stereo

question

Can this microphone be used with an iPhone 7 Plus using Apples headphone adapter?
Asked by: James
This mic features a standard mic jack not compatible with smartphones. For connection to a smartphone an adapter is required. We recommend the Rode SC4. This will work with the iPhone 7 using the Apple 3.5mm to lightning adapter.
