Wired Lav Mic
No Nayme 22.10.2020
I needed a wired lav mic for giving online lectures, a simple to use microphone, decent length cable, (no need for wireless interfaces), clean and clear sound, requires phathom power, so this may be a consideration for some.

Does exactly what I need, sound is clean, clear and realistic, sounds like being in the room. Quite an open and natural sound.

Tends to work better the closer you can get this to your face. although the sound is good and natural wherever you put it, you do need more gain the further away it is, and I've found that noise can be a slight issue (think its more the interface than the microphone), but this may be a consideration for some.

The microphone is omni - so it picks up equally well in all directions - this is great, for clipping it on and just working away - though not great when you're in a meeting and an ice cream van pulls up outside, and everyone can hear it clearly (again situational and not really the microphone at fault - but could be a consideration if you've to deal with a noisier environment).

I use it with the pop filter on, and have found that this pops off the microphone easy enough, when putting on taking off - have had to search around the floor a few times to find it after its popped off.

Comes with a clip and a case
Clip is sturdy, could easily run two off the same clip, if you were using this for broadcast and wary of one going down.
The case is a cloth type case - won't really offer any protection - not a strong case - the case also feels a little small - packing the microphone and the cable and xlr into the case is a little cramped, I'd be wary that the tight packing this requires could damage the cable at some point. Though if you're using some other transportation method, different bag, slot in a hardcase - this possibly wont be an issue.


AKG C 417 PP? Go ahead! It's a fantastic microphone!

A few months ago I bought an AKG C 417 PP lavalier microphone and, I assure you, I?m delighted with this equipment. As a professor and video classes producer, I use my AKG attached to a TASCAM DR-44WL voice recorder (that I?ve bought at Thomann as well) and the results are amazing. As a cardioid condenser microphone (it needs a phantom power to work correctly), the recordings are clear and with no environmental noises or echoes, being extremely directional. In short, I strongly recommend the AKG C 417 PP microphone!

Good build quality, solid XLR connector and reasonable frequency pickup. But TERRIBLE amounts of self-noise make this almost unusable for live applications. Paired with noise reduction software (FIR in Reaper), it's usable on recorded tracks. But its annoying having to do this extra step.

Wirklich was für die Geige

Durch den Testbericht von Brosef angeregt habe ich dieses Mikro bestellt, um damit die Geige in unserer Band besser hörbar zu machen. Ich muss dazu sagen, dass die Geigerin ein InEar während der Probe trägt, um sich sauber zu hören.
Für die Abnahme gab es einige Versuche: Von AKG C1000 und Rode NT-5 auf Ständer über Piezo-Clip am Steg über DI bis hin zu Sennheiser e608, Beyerdynamic TG-X55 und AudioTechnica Pro35 war irgenwie nix so Richtiges dabei und ich habe sie damit vertröstet, das eine abgenommene Geige eben nicht so klingt, wie in Natura....
Als ich ihr dieses Mikro mit dem Rode-Violin Clip angclipst und den Sound aufs Ohr gegeben habe, waren ihre Worte:
"Das ist das, was ich mir vom Geigensound immer vorgestellt und bisher nie auf dem Ohr hatte!".
Auch aus dem Lautsprecher tönt die Geige jetzt angenehm, so wie wir sie im BandMix platziert haben wollen. Also, alle zufrieden =).
Aufpassen muss man hier noch, dass es sich um eine Kugel-Charakteristik handelt, das heißt, Nebengeräusche fängt das Mic trotzdem ein, Nur zur Info.
Eine weitere Info: Das Teil kommt mit Phantomspeise-Adapter und langem Kabel (locker 2m), was ausgesprochen angenehm ist. =) Lediglich ein Gürtelclip könnte noch dran sein, dann wäres echt perfekt. So musste ich auch den Shure Belt-Clip zurückgreifen.
Trotzdem ist das für insgesammt 132 Euro (für Mic, ViolinClip und Gürtelclip) ein ziemlich ansprechendes Setup für die Violine.
Danke nochmal an Brosef für die Textbewertung und auch von mir gibt es eine Kaufempfehlung für jemand, der auf der Suche nach einer Abnahmemölichkeit seiner Streichinstrumente ist.
