Excerpt: We have been using the Sony ECM44B lavalier mics for over 25 years in both studio and on-location productions. They last a long time, and are easy on the budget. We have periodically used other lavalier mics, but have never found any that work as well as the these for the price.
Excerpt: This microphone has excellent clarity in many positions and scenarios. I had to film a dozen quick interviews in the middle of a loud and lively conference and I'm very satisfied with the results.
Excerpt: These mics have been work horses in our studio. Very dependable, predictable lavaliere mic. Have survived 5+ years of use. The wire is thin and can be compromised with talent misuse (pinching cord under chair leg). Mic clips eventually need to be replaced, again from misuse - over twisting.
Excerpt: I use this microphone for sit down interviews mostly, and connect a longer XLR cable. It works really well and the quality is what you would expect for a sub $[$]piece of equipment. It sounds very clear.
Pros: Easy To Use, Great Sound Quality, Lightweight
Excerpt: I've had a few issues with this model just eventually giving out, but it lasts several years and puts up with a good amount of wear and tear. Not a super long cord, so if you're doing a camera setup more than 6-7 feet away, you may want to invest in an XLR extender to give yourself some extra slack.
