I have a dozen or so of these microphones for my court reporting business
10 August 2014
Summary: As a court reporter recording court proceedings I need clarity and accuracy recording on my digital Marantz recorder. These Audio Technica mics are great, and heavy duty. The cords are detachable so I can use a long or short cord depending on venue. I have helped another reporter get a system set up identical to mine and he's raving about it too.
Excerpt: We bought this product to use as a back-up microphone during some of our video productions. It is very sensitive and tends to pick up every sound in the room, which is what we wanted, but the voices van sound a bit hollow if you rely only on this mic.
Pros: Durable, Easy To Use, Lightweight, Versatile
Excerpt: I am using this microphone for small seminar that my wife and her friend are presenting. They have just completed second seminar last week (Aug 25th, 2012) and recorded with this microphone. They were standing at left and right of presentation screen. Great thing about are 1. Only one microphone does a good job, 2. Audience did not notice because the boundary microphone was hard to be noticed. This is good for interview, small group seminar and talk show.
Excerpt: Purchased this last week to cover a 3 hour meeting and it worked flawlessly. The PRO-44 was placed on the rectangular meeting table, about 3/4 of the way from one end, in the center. It captured all conversation at the table (about 12 people), even those seated slightly behind it. The included cable has a mini-XLR that connects to the mic and a standard XLR at the other end. It is plenty long for most typical applications. The microphone feels substantial and well made.
Pros: Clear Sound, Compact, Durable, Easy To Use, Lightweight
Excerpt: These boundary mic performed superbly at a recent meeting with a 10-person panel table. Problems inherent with lavaliere and traditional table mic were eliminated. Highly recommend these mics.
Excerpt: Using it to record parent meetings in a small room Picks up conversations much better than the standard mic on the camcorder. Very unobtrusive. Be sure to get the correct adapters for your camcorder.
Pros: Clear Sound, Compact, Easy To Use, Lightweight
