A CLASSIC MIC FOR ALL TIME

Kelly the CLVS, B&H Photo
20 October 2014
  • Excerpt: i am a legal video specialist and need a rugged wired mic that rejects background noise and delivers clear crisp speech. I have used the AT831b for nearly 20 years, and they get dropped, abused, yanked and spit on and give many years of good service. Once in a while I have to replace one, but I would never consider anything else for my work. I capture testimony that can never be re-done if anything goes wrong, and no excuses will be accepted.

Solid performance, with a couple of quirks.

  • Summary: Pretty pleased with this mic, although I generally prefer omni lapel mics. It has a nice crisp response, on a range of voices. Something I didn't know, but can affirm now: apparently most condenser mics with both battery and phantom power perform better with phantom. I tried this mic first using battery power, and was quite disappointed. But using phantom, it's sounded pretty good. Completely subjective, but there you go.

Terrific mic

  • Excerpt: This extremely small lav delivers great audio, and its diminutive size allows for it to remain virtually unseen in the shot. I highly recommend it for controlled interviews.

Good basic Lav.

  • Excerpt: A good lavalier for the beginning user. A goodlav for the presetup shoots. This not a easy mic to setup quickly since it is not wireless. For being a wired mic I wish it was a little cheaper.
  • Pros: Clear Sound, Durable, Easy To Use
  • Cons: Limited Functions
