Good Quality Headset Mic!

Audio-Technica AT892CWPublished on 11/27/12 at 16:25
What I like most about these headset mics is the overall quality and their pick-up pattern. I've used these with a singer / flute player and both picked up fairly evenly and with a well balanced sound. What I dislike is that the windscreen "fuzzies", as I like to call them, fall off easily and are annoyingly easy to lose. Also, they are on the expensive side when you have to replace them.
I use these with a local theatre group as well as with live musicians and they perform well with both. However, a big drawback is this; because they are ultimately so close to the mouth when someone screams or yells they will distort. They have a fairly high SPL rating for such a tiny little condenser...…

I use these with a local theatre group as well as with live musicians and they perform well with both. However, a big drawback is this; because they are ultimately so close to the mouth when someone screams or yells they will distort. They have a fairly high SPL rating for such a tiny little condenser but if you have people lacking in mic control or who are unused to this kind of mic expect to have issues.
The advantages with these are quite good however! Obviously mobility should be taken into account but these mics have a very well balanced frequency response and end up sounding alot warmer and richer than the old lavalier mics. Also the choice of color is a huge factor for theatre groups. You can get these in a creame color that blends very well on stage.
These may look as though they are easily damaged but they are actually much more sturdy than they seem. The stem can be repositioned and bent alot more than you might assume before you really mess them up. Also the earpiece is adjustable as well which is good for little kids or those with funny ears! Of course, I'm not tempting you to try to tweak them until you break one, I'm just letting you know that you can feel relatively confident with their lifespan even if you are dealing with a group of untrained high school kids wearing your 200-250$ mics! Just keep an eye on those windscreens!
Another downside is that you simply must keep these clean! In any performance under stage lighting people will sweat and around the ears these things will get icky! Just keep some diluted rubbing alcohol around and wipe them down good after each use. No one wants to have someone else's ear sweat attached to their face!
Price wise I'd say that these are right in the reasonable range comparatively.
I'd say that these stand up fairly well with most other wireless headset mics that I've used that are within this price range, so I'd feel OK suggesting these to a friend.

I find this microphone headband quite friendly, I could try them recently on a play, and so far, so good ...
it is relatively unobtrusive, and delivers a relatively clear and easily exploitable later, while being strong enough to Feedback
I appreciate the remarks of some actors => <p class="bbcode-cite"> Quote: <span>"It is your microphone, it do not hurt the ears, and do not shake your head, not like the shure"</span>

a downside, however, it may not be suitable for all forms of ducoup ears and slip easily.
And so I do not like the pocket transmitter + receiver tandem that is usually associated with, but that's another story ... …
