New RØDE Wearable Mics
The new RØDE HS1 is a headset microphone designed to be malleable and lightweight, with tube arm assembly that features three axes of mechanical adjustment, while the microphone tube arm can be relocated to either the left or right side of the user's face.
The HS1's omnidirectional capsule is designed to provide pure, clear audio and low handling noise and a wide frequency response.
Available in both black (HS1-B) and pink (HS1-P), the headset is supplied with a 1.2m detachable shielded Kevlar-reinforced cable as well as a pop filter, mini furry and a set of adjustment tools. It ships in a stackable anti-trauma travel case that is designed to protect the HS1 and its accessories from the rigours of transport and storage.
The new RØDE PinMic offers a new take on the traditional lapel microphone. The new RØDE PinMic features a detachable capsule head that mounts onto three pins on the microphone backplate, providing an alternative that can be located almost anywhere on a wide range of clothing and fabrics, according to the manufacturer.
The microphone ships with a black capsule installed, and an additional unpainted interchangeable capsule mesh is supplied for customisation.
The RØDE Lavalier, a lapel microphone designed to offer simple, intuitive use and cable management.
Like the HS1 and PinMic, the Lavalier is supplied with a pop filter, mini furry for use in adverse environments, cable management clips and a storage case.
RØDE has developed the MiCon connector system that provides integration between all of RØDE's wearable microphones and a range of wireless systems. To choose the correct adaptor for your needs, visit www.rodemic.com/micon.
RØDE offers warranty and after sales service on its products. The HS1, Lavalier and PinMic ship with a comprehensive 12 month replacement warranty, however RØDE additionally offers an extended warranty program following online registration of the product within one month of purchase.
This extended warranty entitles the user to a $99 (Australian Dollar) replacement microphone for four years following the initial 12 month warranty period.
The RØDE HS1, Lavalier, PinMic and suite of MiCon adaptors and cables are shipping now and available from all authorised RØDE retailers.
