The Next Stage of Lavolution!Traditional lapel-style lavalier microphones are great, that is, if your wearing a jacket. If you aren't, then they pretty much just suck. Even if you are wearing a jacket with lapels, lav mic clips wear out, and you can suddenly find yourself kicking your runaway microphone and creating a sound so horrible that your entire audience cringes in unison as though they'd all just bitten into a rotten lime. Don't be that guy. Thanks to RODE, now there's an excellent alternative to the standard lavalier. Prepare yourself for the evolution of the lavalier!
The RODE PinMic is (believe it or not) exactly what it sounds like. It features the same amazing omnidirectional capsule as their standard Lavalier mic, but with a cool design that lets you remove it like the cap of a pin. You just stick the PinMic's needle-like base through your shirt or sweater, snap the capsule on the other side, and the whole thing stays in place. If you're really concerned about this tiny mic clashing with your couture or snazzy turtle neck, you can paint the capsule head cover to match. And speaking of the PinMic's goes-with-anything design, this baby features RODE's MiCon terminator, so you can snap on any kind connector you need for your wireless system.
