In this article I want to talk through different makes and models of lavalier mics and compare things like audio quality, durability, and price. As podcasters the ultimate priority is good audio quality, but we also need to look at other factors. A particular lav mic might have a flimsy, easily broken clip, or a very short cable.
Most lavalier mics will plug into and run through a digital recorder, mixer, or computer. However, smartphone lavs (which, funnily enough, plug directly into your smartphone) are becoming increasingly popular.
Lavalier microphones are one of the best ways of close-miking your talent when recording dialogue. This proximity to the sound source (i.e. your talent's mouth) eliminates a lot of the guesswork necessary in achieving good signal-to-noise ratio via shotgun or on-camera mic placement.
