MICW MINIATURE MICROPHONES - Iseries - Mobile phone, tablet, laptop
The i825 and i855 lavalier microphones, designed for on-air productions, forum discussions and interviews, are durable enough for ENG use. The minimal size makes them suitable for television and video production. These professional condenser microphones are powered from the device so no additional adapters or power are required. They are designed for use with the Apple iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch, Android or any phones, tablets and laptops with a powered, 4-pole, 3.5mm headphone and microphone socket, into which they plug via a 1.6 metre captive cable. They offer a high-quality alternative to the internal microphones in these devices, for use when recording. They may also be used with computer sound-cards which have powered microphone inputs, or professional microphone inputs when used with an optional adapter. The microphones are supplied with a kit of accessories.
Electret condenser designs, they are powered from the host device, or may be used with professional mixers using the optional PI49 adapter cable ( 74-6888 ), which provides suitable power from a microphone input with 48V phantom powering.
The i825 is omni-directional, for use where ambient pick-up is required or the location of the microphone prevents positioning to point at the sound source, for example, when hidden in the hair of a performer. The i855 has a cardioid response, more suitable when used in noisy surroundings where the microphone can be positioned to point directly towards the sound source.
The microphones are each supplied as part of a kit. Each kit contains: The appropriate microphone, a selection of WS018 windshields, a CL018 collar or lapel clip mount, a CL012 tie-clip mount, an SA011 inline splitter adapter for simultaneous use of headphones and the microphone, four strips of five disposable, sticky mounting-pads, two white, two brown, manual, carrying case.
A range of accessories, including adapters, splitters, an attenuator and phantom power adapter, is available for these microphones. For additional or replacement items, see MicW Accessories For iSeries Microphones.
The iSeries from MicW also includes miniature recording designs, a Class 2 measurement microphone, a shotgun model useful for camera-mounted work and a boundary layer design, suitable for interviews. See MicW Microphones.
