Small and solidly built lav mic

CraigD, B&H Photo

  • Excerpt: This was my first wired lav mic. It is solidly built and provided clean audio even when recorded directly into the Zoom H1. The cable is extremely long (9.8' / 3m), but connects securely into the power module. There are a number of accessories for attaching it to your talent, which is really convenient.
  • Pros: Clear Sound, Compact, Durable

Small, simple, good performance

  • Excerpt: You can't do better for the price. Yes it's wired but at least interference won't be a problem. It's great for any kit. Clear sound and good range.

Great first lav

  • Excerpt: I use this mic with my Zoom H4N and directly into my Canon 5DmkIII. I really like the optional phantom power pod for attaching directly to my camera body or PC. The Zoom H4N provides phantom power but it can drain the batteries quicker. No downsides that I've found yet.

Good Sound Quality

  • Excerpt: Works very well and has good quality sound. Was surprised at how small it was, but that's not a bad thing. As a side note it is omni-directional so in a room with any echo you will pick some of that up.

Perfect Sound!

  • Excerpt: This mic came as a recommendation from a B&H employee via IM Chat. His advice was spot on! I needed a low profile mic with great sound for DSLR filming and the AT899 worked perfectly! I have not one complaint about it.

Best bang for your buck!

Black River Creative, B&H Photo
11 February 2014
  • Excerpt: In shooting footage for a documentary, we bought this mic for traveling to 9 locations over a number of days. The sound was clean and crisp, despite background noise and street noise. We liked the mic so much, we came back and bought two more. It is the best sounding mic in the under $ category. I heartily recommend it be in your kit!
  • Pros: Clear Sound, Compact, Durable, Easy To Use, Has A Protective Case

great build and features, ok sound

Gabriel, B&H Photo
9 January 2014
  • Excerpt: I actually like the fact that it has a really long cord. I like to wire my subjects but then have the recorder next to me at the camera, which sometimes can be quite far away. I don't find the battery/XLR part to be inconvenient at all, in fact I very much appreciate the option to run the battery if phantom is not possible. The accessory kit of attachments is possibly worth the price alone, and I like how small the mic itself is.

Awesome Lav

Raoul Duke, B&H Photo
23 December 2013
  • Excerpt: I use this for my primary voice track on a Zoom H6. So much better quality than using audio from my cameras. It stays with me, so the voice track is always consistent. The sound quality is superb, and for something so small, it seems really durable. The only downside is that there is no clip for the power supply, so if you're using an XLR cable, you've got to find some way to carry this thing without damaging the cables.

Great for interviews

The Interview Guy, B&H Photo
2 December 2013
  • Excerpt: I use this lavalier for interviews in place of the rode on a boom that I used to use for this kind of stuff. Great clean sound and easy enough to conceal. I won't go back.
  • Pros: Clear Sound, Compact, Easy To Use
