Eliminates mouth to mic distance issues

  • Excerpt: I love these mics. I have used them on exercise video, golf instruction video, stage performers/singers and most recently on the crew. I found with a Micon 2 they power up from our Midland GTX 1000 radios. You will need a 2.5 to 3.5 converter to do this. We can whisper into them and hear each other. They are easy to wear under headphones. A mini Y connector pairs the headphone feed to camera and radio. It is slick and its not all that expensive to do.
  • Pros: Comfortable, Good Mfg Support, Great flexibility, Great sound

Great Quality, but Impaired Usability

  • Excerpt: This is a 5 star product for many applications, but it falls down in the key purpose for headset microphones - use for sound reinforcement / public address in live presentations.Two issues: ===Problem # 1) Fidgety adjustment and fitting that requires tools and experience. You must read the instructions on this mic because tweaking all the various fitting adjustments is critical.
  • Pros: Build Quality, Compact, Kit And Case
  • Cons: Feedback Prone, Limited Functions

  • Excerpt: I have never used a Rode microphone before. I have heard of them. Mostly in studio and broadcast situations. I have never heard of them being used in a live setting. I thought I would give it a try. When I received the microphone, I hooked it up and to my surprise, I didn't have to do any eq'ing to it what so ever. It was awesome! My pastor absolutely loves it.
  • Pros: Clear Sound, Compact, Durable, Easy To Use, Lightweight, Versatile

Fitness Video Essential

  • Excerpt: This is my second HS1-P headset. They are great for video where the talent is moving around. The mic to mouth distance remains constant and no post production audio correction is needed. The MiCon adapter connection is easy to break, be careful when you remove the mic wire, the housing on the adapter can come with it, breaking the internal wire in the adapter. Rode was quick to send a replacement. A little crazy glue on the ring can end this problem forever.
  • Pros: Clear Sound, Easy To Use, Lightweight, Versatile
  • Cons: Breaks Easily
