Good Quality Mic - Needs Phantom Power

Vlog-Social, B&H Photo
4 weeks ago
  • Excerpt: I was told this mic was a powered mic and of all the reviews I read, nobody mentioned this mic requires phantom power, so I want to make it clear to everyone this mic requires phantom power. <br /><br />Otherwise, it is a really good mic.

Excellent sound quality, no hassle

Havremunken, B&H Photo
30 January 2014
  • Excerpt: I bought this (along with the 183 and 184 cartridges, for a full selection of pickup patterns) to do interviews in a very small room (not at all a sound studio). For now I use it with a Roland Quad Capture to get audio into Adobe Audition CC for processing/sync with video.<br /><br />Shure have done a good job with the product design - as a low-experience amateur I thought it was a joy to work with.
  • Pros: Durable, Easy To Use, Great Sound Quality, Lightweight, Long Lasting

Great interview or podium mic!

chicagovideographer, Ebay
6 March 2013
  • Summary: I have two ways that I use this lav mic. 1) As a wired lav for interviews where I dont want to reley on a wireless. 2) plugged into my wireless plug-on-transmitter it becomes a good inerview or podium mic without the direct connection to the camcorder. Excellant sound quality either way!

Correction

  • Excerpt: This mic has never been useful too us. It is too large, tips over on collars from weight and it has connection problems. I know Shure has a great repair/replace policy but I'd rather not have to use it so often.
  • Cons: Noisy, Unreliable, Unstable

A SHURE BET!

Tell-Tale Productions RR documentaries, B&H Photo
15 March 2012
  • Excerpt: I have several Shure lavs for my video documentaries, and have found this brand a bit more forgiving from &quot;rubbing&quot; sounds from my subjects clothing and the mic screen. I also like the convenient zipper bag to hold the mic. My one mic, from a competitor, comes in a rectangular box, which doesn't store well in my camcorder case.
  • Pros: Durable, Easy To Use, Great Sound Quality, Lightweight

25 January 2012
  • Excerpt: After testing Azden's cheaper wireless lav kit we decide to purchase an extra zoom recorder and a wired lav from a company I have nothing but faith in. This shure lav is a bit bulky but its audio quality makes the size worth it.
  • Pros: Easy To Use, Great Sound Quality
