    Point Source Audio has launched the new CO-7L Miniature Lavalier in response to customer demand for a lavalier version of its flagship CO-7 earworn microphone.  The new CO-7L Miniature Lavalier fills a need for speakers in broadcast or theatre production who generally prefer or need an “invisible” option.  The CO-7L element is extremely small so it can be cleverly hidden in the hairline, behind a button, or even attached to eyeglasses.  It is also water-resistant to be more resilient against… View this post

    Ever heard of the Zagat Restaurant Guide? The Zagats (whom I’ve met) are a husband and wife team who sift through hundreds (thousands?) of forms sent in by diners (folks who eat at restaurants). The resulting ratings are democratic instead of “demo-critic” (critics are often tainted by too much booze or bad attitudes) or “demo-vicious” (bad hair day taken out on the poor restaurant owner). I look at this overview as kind of a Zagat Microphone Guide. The instrument mic… View this post

    This article is provided by Bartlett Microphones.   Perhaps the most challenging sound-reinforcement job—in terms of feedback—is amplifying children. It’s often hard to hear children in dramatic or musical productions. That’s because most children don’t project. Since they produce a low volume on stage, you must turn up their mics a lot to hear them—resulting in feedback. Here I’ll offer some creative solutions to help those young voices be heard. I won’t cover wireless mics—even though they work well—because they… View this post

    Point Source Audio has introduced the CO-5w, a new “unsinkable” waterproof earworn microphone outfitted with a special water-protected mic element. The CO-5w offers omnidirectional polar pattern that allows a 360-degree pick-up of sound, providing a natural blend of voice and ambience. The design of the CO-5w also lends itself to reduced speech produced “popping sounds” and voice overloads in close mic applications. “We’re super excited about our ‘unsinkable’ feature,” says Yvonne Ho, vice president of marketing at Point Source Audio.… View this post
