  • Excerpt: We use this lav for education purposes at Morgan State University and it's been a true workhorse. Dare I say, the students can drop them, pack gear on top of them, tug on the cables, and more and they just keep working.
  • Pros: Clear Sound, Compact, Durable, Easy To Use, Inexpensive, Lightweight, Versatile
  • Cons: No internal battery

Go wired not wireless

  • Excerpt: This is a great wired lavalier mic. It has great sound and comes with several connection clips and wind screens. I highly recommend this mike for interviews and just about any application where your subject is not in a lot of motion.
  • Pros: Clear Sound, Compact, Easy To Use, Lightweight, Versatile

Narrow pickup pattern as advertised

  • Excerpt: This supercardioid mic had a narrow pickup pattern as advertised, and excluded loud ambient noise well. Only complaint is that the screw-on condenser cap worked its way loose while lav was affixed to a subject on a bouncy bus ride and had to momentarily stop interview to screw cap on tighter.

Excellent Product

  • Excerpt: We use this lav mic for on-camera production of programs for a local TV station. Our shows contain vo footage recored with a large diaphragm condenser mic. The MX184 approaches the sound quality of the large mic yet is easily concealed on the talent.
  • Pros: Clear Sound, Compact, Easy To Use, Lightweight, Versatile

  • Excerpt: We produce an elementary school news show. We only had 2 older style microphones and we were afraid to take them out of the studio for fear of breaking them. What a great time we had using our new MX184 Supercardioid Wired Lavalier mic. The sound is amazing.
