LAPEL/TIE-CLIP/LAVALIER MICROPHONES

We have tested and approved these lavalier mics at various price points...

AUDIO-TECHNICA AT803b
Omnidirectional Condenser Lavalier (Tie-Clip) Microphone


The AT803b is an Industry Standard lapel mic. It provides excellent yet unobtrusive sound pickup for 'talking heads' be they lecturers, TV performers, interviewers or interviewees. Designed for clip-on lavalier and musical instrument use, it features an integral 80 Hz high-pass filter that provides easy switching from a flat frequency response to a low-end roll-off. The microphone operates on battery (internal) or phantom (external) power. Small size is ideal for applications requiring minimum visibility and/or inhibition. This is easily our most popular clip-on mic.

AUDIO-TECHNICA AT831b
Cardioid Condenser Lavalier (Tie-Clip) Microphone


Another Audio-Technica Industry Standard lapel mic, this one is essentially a more directional cardioid version of the AT-803b omni above. It provides excellent yet unobtrusive sound pickup for 'talking heads' be they lecturers, TV performers, interviewers or interviewees, as well as for acoustic guitar pickup (when used with supplied AT8444 instrument adaptor). The AT-831b's cardioid pickup characteristic cuts out sounds from the bottom and the lower sides of the microphone and this makes it a better choice than an omnidirectional mic when used in a noisier environment. It features an integral 80 Hz high-pass filter that provides easy switching from a flat frequency response to a low-end roll-off. The microphone operates on battery (internal) or phantom (external) power. Small size is ideal for applications requiring minimum visibility and/or inhibition.

AUDIO-TECHNICA AT899
Omnidirectional Condenser Lavalier (Tie-Clip) Microphone

 

Of the choices of broadcast quality tie-clip mic we offer, the AT899 is the tiniest due to its even lower profile design (a mere 5mm in diameter) and thus it really assures minimum visibility when this is desirable. It also delivers premium sound performance. The AT899 may be worn as a lavalier and is easily hidden in clothing or hair. It offers the convenience of battery or phantom power, and its switchable low-frequency roll-off reduces popping. Order this one if miniature size is important and you need the very best lavalier performance currently available.

 

• Maximum intelligibility
• Clean, accurate reproduction for vocalists, lecturers, stage and television talent, and houses of worship

• Low-profile design (a mere 5mm in diameter) is ideal for applications requiring minimum visibility

• Operates on battery or phantom power 

• Extensive array of included accessories (see below)

• 9.8' (3.0 m) cable permanently attached to mic, TA3F connector at power module

AUDIO-TECHNICA PRO70
Cardioid Condenser Lavalier (Tie-Clip) Microphone

 

Whilst the PRO70 does not deliver quite the same frequency response as some of the other options on this page, it is still a very acceptable performer. The Audio-Technica PRO70 has a cardioid pick-up pattern and is a little bigger in size than its counterparts. It is offered here as a budget-conscious option for speech-based recordings as well as for guitar or other stringed instrument recording.

Supplied with both a clothing clip and guitar mount, it provides fairly natural and articulate vocal reproduction when used as a clip-on lavalier and excels in pickup of acoustic guitar. The PRO70 is designed to make music and speech clearly and comfortably audible, yet never draw attention to itself or its operation. The microphone is equipped with a low-frequency roll-off switch that allows for reduced pickup of room noise. The versatile PRO70 may be powered by either battery or phantom power. Its cardioid polar pattern reduces pickup of sounds from the sides and rear, improving isolation of the desired sound source.
