Powered by common AA battery this tie microphone is entirely self-contained, not requiring power from AC input. The sound is perfectly pleasant and clear though some users have reported preferring to add a little audio equalization to sweeten it during editing.
It comes with a cable that is really far too long at five meters; the output is unbalanced so longer cable runs should be avoided in order not to pick up stray electrical interference.
Although a foam cover is included, no ‘fluffy’ windshield is supplied so using this mic outdoors will require careful placement and monitoring on headphones.
An absolute bargain – this little marvel may be basic in many ways but at less than a tenth of the price of many “pro” mics, it’s a must-have for every camcorder/public speaker user (accept a 3.5mm mic jack).
