Cardioid Condenser Head Worn Microphone


We sell quite a few of these head worn microphones to those who need to record people who have no microphone technique. Once it's been put on, the talker cannot move closer to or further from the microphone because it moves with their head.


Ideal for anyone requiring hands-free operation

Comfortable, unobtrusive headband design with side-of-mouth pickup

Belt-mounted power module operates on battery or phantom power

Cardioid polar pattern improves isolation of desired sound source
