We all love stories of triumph and success, especially when they involve people overcoming challenges and making a significant impact on others. Today, we’re taking you behind-the-scenes of a triumphant champion, Ron Scolesdang, the reigning WCK (World Combat Kings) World Champion, and how he’s making an impact on his community by empowering seniors with self-defense training–and possibly, life-saving skills.
When demonstrating self-defense techniques Scolesdang doesn’t have time to worry about his microphone shifting or clothing noise causing a loss in audio clarity. The weekly Seniors Fight Back classes he hosts draws in crowds of seniors each week, and is staffed with a crew that is made up of volunteers. So, the microphone setup needs to be simple, the audio needs to be clear, and placement needs to be on point—but out of the way. Wearing the EMBRACE on-ear microphone allows Scolesdang to behave naturally and focus on his demonstrations.
How Did the EMBRACE Microphone Deliver the Knockout?
Patented On-Ear Design
Unlike traditional lavalier microphones, the EO-8WL EMBRACE Microphone features a patented design that securely fastens to the ear. This innovative approach eliminates clothing noise and ensures consistent audio quality, even when the speaker or performer moves around.
Custom Fit Microphone
The EO-8WL EMBRACE Microphone “stretches” to attach to the ear, providing a secure and comfortable fit for every user regardless of head size or shape. This customization guarantees optimal microphone placement always at a set distance from the mouth to ensure clear and consistent audio pick up.
More Discreet Than Lapel Lavaliers
With its low-profile design, the EO-8WL EMBRACE Microphone is highly discreet, and virtually invisible under hair, allowing performers and presenters to focus on their craft without being distracted by the microphone. This discreet appearance is especially beneficial for those in theatre, film, and television productions, where maintaining a natural look is essential.
Trusted Audio Clarity
The EO-8WL EMBRACE Microphone has an omnidirectional element that is trusted by audio professionals and sound designers for some of the most premier stages in the world. The on-ear placement reduces audio dropouts or inconsistencies that can occur due to the mic user’s movements.
Having a secure, comfortable, and discreet audio solution that eliminates clothing noise and ensures consistent audio quality, allows superstars like Scolesdang to focus on their passion and deliver the best possible experience to their audience.
If you’re an audio professional or stage technician looking to elevate your next live event or production, consider integrating the EO-8WL EMBRACE Microphone into your audio setup.
