The Lavalier microphones is a professional-grade wearable microphone designed for use in a wide range of film, television and broadcast scenarios, or wherever professional quality audio is required in a discreet, portable format without the complication and expense of additional wireless equipment.
With the Lavalier microphones the user simply mounts the microphone on the talent, connects it to a smartphone or tablet headset jack and records via the boyamicrophone
By employing a high quality omni-directional condenser capsule the Lavalier microphones picks up sound equally from all around the microphone, allowing for versatility when mounting and ensuring a high degree of user-friendly operation.
A foam pop shield is supplied to minimise wind noise and vocal plosives (hard ‘b’, ‘t’ and ‘p’ sounds), as well as a durable mounting clip with in-built cable management.
While many lav microphones are omnidirectional, meaning they capture an equally strong signal from all directions, there are quite a few lav mics that are made with a cardioid or hypercardioid pattern. This becomes important when clipping a microphone, so that you know which style you own, because you’ll need to point the end of the microphone in the direction of your talents mouth if you have anything but an omnidirectional mic. Too often I see camera operators clipping a mic onto someone that is pointed away from their mouth, and the cam op doesn’t know the pickup pattern of the lav they are using.
While with shotgun microphones it is desirable to close-mic your speaker, with a lavalier you should start by placing it about six to eight inches away from the source of audio (the speakers mouth). This often means clipping the mic onto the neckline of a shirt or edge of a jacket. Clipping the lav too close to the persons neck will capture a much deeper, guttural sound to their voice which usually isn’t desirable.
