Specifications •• Polar Response •• Frequency Response •• Compare

The CO-8WL Waterproof Lavalier Microphone has a low-profile of merely 4mm in diameter, but it embodies all the high performance characteristics you might expect from a larger format microphone. Behind a button, or hiding in the hairline, this lavalier microphone is ideal for applications requiring a low profile unobtrusive fit. Of particular note is that the CO-8WL lavalier mic is IP57 waterproof rated against water, sweat and makeup-conditions that are commonly harmful to microphones. This little lavalier has the ability to reach up to 148dB max SPL to deliver big results for your performance.
