  • Excerpt: I primarily use a Sennheiser MKH-416 boom, but, when I do go for the lav, I've had great performance from the AT899. But that is omnidirectional, so picked up the AT898 as another option. It won't give you what you get from the Sennheiser, but very close. Good/solid piece of kit. Worth the money. Use primarily for interviews.

Good choice for interviews

  • Excerpt: I use this type of microphone for multi-person interviews and it does a great job of isolating the voice of the person mic'd. It is more sensitive to popping than the AT899. But not enough for me to suggest avoiding it.

29 September 2010
  • Excerpt: The only issue I have with this lav is how the mic clips (supplied) can only be attached to the very thin cable as opposed to the mic's body itself. I always feel like the cable is going to be detached from the microphone every time I remove the clips. If I could use only one of the many different types of clips that are included in the package, I would simply keep it attached to the cable and not have to worry about it, but unfortunately, it is sometimes necessary to...

Excellent Lav mic

  • Excerpt: Works great either with a mixer or plugged directly to the camera. Very small - easy to hide under clothing. Excellent sound quality. Very directional. So be sure subject isn't moving around or constantly turning their head. Includes great case w/ basic accessory kit. Good quality windscreen and dead cat a must for outdoor use. Very sensitive to wind noise. But great once protected.
