Best Microphones for Theatre
Sing, sigh, yell, chuckle, or whisper … however actors deliver their character, crisp and clear audio ensures the performance captivates the audience. A microphone is an extension of the performer — and whether on Broadway or the local stage, the right performance microphone must be that trusted partner to amplify the actor’s vocals and electrify the audience.
If You've Seen This, Then You've Heard Us!
A great performance microphone — such as our SERIES8 omnidirectional models — make it ideal for capturing the intimacy of a whisper all the way to a dramatic shout or song. David Saxe Productions, one of the largest production companies in Las Vegas is impressed: "The Point Source mics are used in our productions seven nights a week year-round. The sound quality is excellent and the bendability of the boom makes it super easy to fit our rotation of actors and frequent costume changes. We've tried other brands of earworn microphones, but these are by far the best!"
Water & Sweat Proof
Performance venues are often fast-paced, hectic environments that can put any earworn microphone to the test. With the number of fittings over time, an earworn mic boom can be quite susceptible to breakage — that’s why it’s important to choose a performance microphone with a durable bendable boom. Despite its light-weight and ultra-thin construction, the boom on our SERIES8 models can bend over 360 degrees to provide the perfect combination of form and function. While the element is waterproof rated to IP 57 to protect against water, sweat and makeup.
Heasset and earset microphones keep the performance moving along by staying in place with the actor’s head movements. To facilitate this precise placement, our “Unbreakable Boom” allows wearing flexibility for the left or right side, and for children or adults — always resting two to three inches from the speaker’s mouth. If the performance is high energy, the microphone can be converted to a dual earset option for increased stability. Point Source's performance microphone collection offers three styles: headset, earworn and lavalier. They also come in a variety of colors to blend with the actor’s skin tone or makeup.
