He relies on his B3 omnidirectional lavalier from Countryman Associates for work that can be positively brutal on the microphones. During the course of his… View this story

For the most mission-critical microphone on the field, worn by the referee, Stoffo selected Shure Axient wireless “I love the Axient system; there is literally nothing else that compares to it,” he says. “It’s got a much more robust front end than any other wireless mic out there, which is… View this story
