Questions & Answers
This mic is available in a few different versions. With the exception of the insert plug, each is the same. If you are interested in purchasing a stereo adapter for the TS (Tip, Sleeve) version, you will need to look for a stereo adapter. It is stereo because the TRS (Tip, Ring, Sleeve) are together. When you are ordering from Amazon, make sure you order the one that states that it is for Zoom/Tascam Mono is the one that states it is for computer/laptop.
There is a 1/8" input on the diagram to make it compatible with Zoom and Tascam.
A generic Y adapter that accepts standard 3 jacks has been used with two of these mics. On a Tascam DR-88, I have no problems with 8mm (TRS) plugs (such as on this mic). I have a Canon 5D Mark IV and a Canon 05. The reason you want to split the signal is unknown to me. A stereo microphone is used for recording. It is, however, difficult to distinguish left from right channels owing to its small size. Using a Y adapter and two mics, I get two mono signals There is one to the left and one to

-If you told me this cheap no-brand lavelier would perform at or above par with lavalier's that cost 100x to 1000x as much - I would be extremely surprised. It would have been impossible for me to believe However, I am happy to report that this lavalier sounds stunning. There are many reviews on the web, and I listened to many samples on YouTube, but this lapel mic always seemed to be the best fit. It would be ideal if it could plug directly into a dSLR camera at this time. As well as the 16' extension cord, I use a shoestring extension mic stand for longer reach. As a result, make sure you use a microphone cable instead of A shielding for interference is not present on the headphone extension. It is equipped with a mic cable. You may have to pay a little more (in fact, I paid more for the cable than I did for the lapel microphone). )br>/br>I got the stereo version (which simply processes the mono signal into two channels), Make sure to check the type of Pro JM lapel mic before purchasing before you decide to buy. Amazon offers many versions of the externally powered version, which is why there are so many. It is very important to note that each type of plug has a very specific purpose. The connector must be the right one in order for it to work. If the connector is the wrong one, it will not function. Don't buy blindly, read first. Be responsible when you buy.
This just came in yesterday and I am beyond thrilled because I have been trying to figure out how to record audio in a wedding when there is no soundboard or if I am far from the subject. I did some research and found the Tascam DR-1000. There is an 05 recorder.
Specifically designed for the Zoom H1, this is a great microphone. Both channels are included so you don't have to mess with that in post, and it sounds just as good as the mono version. This option is not comparable to the mono version, so you don't have to make any adjustments to your normal input levels when using it. You did a great job on it.
Having no prior experience with other mics, I can attest to the sound quality. It will be lost in a heartbeat since it is made of foam. The implementation of that feature was poor. My next step was to purchase a Rode wireless GOD system and put these to the test. With that system, it is best to avoid those lavs since they picked up all kinds of noise from the Rode. Though others report that they haven't experienced the same issue with other systems, I am certain there is some shielding issue there. I just wanted to let you know.
As well as other reviews, I was very impressed with the build quality of this microphone. I was very sadly disappointed by the muffled sound in any test I conducted. As I was searching for a budget lav, I came upon the Giant Squid lav, and I was impressed by the quality and price. It is obvious that this mic was not competitive. Possibly I would have had a different result if I hadn't had the GS. The only thing I can say is, this lav cannot deliver a usable audio signal for recording. The phone is most suitable for personal dictation, if you are comfortable with that. What then is the point of paying expensive prices for a microphone, when there are cheaper options like Audio Technica batteries that sound usable for recording. The best choices if you are seeking good audio for use in videos or podcasts are the Giant Squid lav ($50 right now on Amazon) or the R*DE smartlav+ with TRS adaptor ($70 on Amazon) instead.
I compared it to some other microphones of the same price. I tested this against some similar mics I have had and like for a while. This one appeared to be more superior in sound quality for the same cost. I observed two things that I liked from an audio perspective1. You can also clip the EQ curve to a crew neck shirt to use it as an EQ curve. It will work well in the middle of the collar even if it's clipped to the middle of the collar. It will be hard for mics to pick up sound from that shirt. Please specify 2. The gain settings are pretty good, so the noise floor is kept at a reasonable level. There are a bunch of iFP-related items I need to get rid of The 795/iFP standard Because the noise floor of the mic is lower than the Zoom H1, this mic will breathe new life into these old recorders. The H1 works extremely well with this. This is definitely something I'm happy with. Would like to buy more audio for movies.
As a pro video professional (35 years of experience), I used this with my Audio Technica broadcast lapel mic. There is noticeably more noise in this version and the sound is muffled. Using Adobe Audition to remove almost all the noise and using Final Cut Pro X's Channel EQ to make a very close comparison (when I clipped both mics together and recorded the same source) I was able to make an almost perfect comparison. Once I've developed a process for cleaning up the mic, I won't be concerned about using it for pro work. In case anything breaks, I keep it in the bag as a spare. The Rode XLR adapter I bought with it does the trick. There isn't a tight fit, but I taped it in so that it doesn't buzz or click. The 24v Phantom works well, but it goes silent when there is no Phantom or no 48v Phantom.
