Choosing the Best Lavalier Microphone
Omni Lavalier Mics
Our GO-9 and CO-8 omni lavalier mics provide a very natural tone ideally suited for performance vocals. They're less sensitive to handling noise and wind interference, making them versatile for various applications. This group of lavalier mics are all IP 57 waterproof rated and also available with built-in redundancy.
Cardioid Lavalier Mic
The CR-8L cardioid lav mic focuses on capturing sound from the front while rejecting noise from the sides and rear. This makes them excellent for isolating specific sources in noisy environments, reducing feedback during live performances, and minimizing ambient noise in recordings.
Hybrid Lavalier Mic
And why not have the best of both worlds with our patented dual element CX-8D lavalier mic containing an omni and a cardioid element—in one! Utilize the omni lav mic for the live PA, and the cardioid lavalier for recording and streaming. Get the mix in one lav mic!
When you need to deliver a big performance, sometimes a small microphone can be your best bet. Choosing the best lavalier mic for the job depends on a lot of different factors—a discreet size for camouflaging, resilience against sweat and makeup, and performance specs that meet the highest measures. Sounds impossible for a tiny lavalier mic? Not with our selection of omnidirectional and cardioid models. If you're still unsure about the sound your want, we're hear to listen.
