See All in this category Audio-Technica is a high-end lavalier with a standard XLR output, featuring a very low profile and an exceptional sound quality. It is somewhat expensive but it in no way overpriced, as it brings the best experience you can ever get with a lavalier. This mic can be used for pretty much anything: video making, broadcasting, theater play, church service, etc.
The package also includes a robust amount of mounting accessories, such as a clothing clip, viper clip and even a magnet clip, not to mention extra windscreens and grilles. Small mics also have their advantages such as more accurate high end. The only downside is a self-noise but it also depends on the model. Too bad, the manufacturers usually do not include this metric for lavaliers.
Larger diaphragms get more directional towards the end of the specter, and starting at around 8 kHz an omnidirectional capsule may as well behave like a cardioid.
However, smaller diaphragm mics, such as Audio-Technica can still pick up higher frequencies from just about any angle and this is exactly what we see about its polar pattern. In reality, this is never a deal breaker but still an advantage that may give your voice a bit more presence along with a sparkling clarity.
Another thing to conclude is that you can mount it at any possible angle without losing quality. Looking at the frequency response, we get a good straight line that fully covers a typical vocal range.
This means it provides an uncolored, natural sound but also serves as another sign of quality. Like many condensers, it gives a slight boost to the higher end, which once again results in an added presence.
This frequency precision makes it a perfect tool for recording both speech and signing, also suitable for the instruments. Features Audio-Technica has a switch for low frequency roll-off that allows fading from around 80 Hz and below. I always have it on as it helps to filter out some rumbling or pounding noises from the environment that include aircon, vehicles, etc. However, both modes perform well.
Build and design The build quality is truly amazing. This time Audio Technica not only produced a great sounding device, but also took care of every single accessory. The mic itself, the cable and the battery pack all feel solid and sturdy — the same applies for the mounting tools. The mic can sit tightly on kind of clothing without anything detaching or going loose.
Both windscreens and grilles are detachable, so it allows for some customization. However, I would advise to keep the grilles on since they protect the capsule and serve as pop shield at the same time. Using a digital recorder, I had to coil it a number of times and that gotten a bit bulky in my pocket. The last thing to note about AT is it comes in two color themes — black and beige.
However, if you run a theater or a TV shows with a dozen of actors, it would be wise to get some beige variations as well.
