You'll love this if you record speech, plays, TV interviews or anything that involves a camera and a voice. Lavalier microphones are very popular for stage and TV use thanks to their discreet design and high ability to pick up voices. It is not always the best idea though to attach a lavelier microphone to the lapel. This can be due to environmental factors like a lot of background noise or they may just not have a good place to attach the mic to their clothing. That is where the Lav Headset comes in. It turns any Rode Lavalier or smartLav+ microphone into a headset which sits to the side of the mouth for crisp clear sound with minimal background noise.
From Kids to Adults
Everyone can use a Lav Headset. They come in three different sizes so that you can be sure that it will fit whoever it is intended for. Most people will just need the Medium size but it may be worth keeping at least one junior and one large headset in your collection just in case.
- Junior: Ages up to 13
- Medium: Teen to Adult
- Large: Larger Adult
Built To Last
Hardware like this is useless if it can't withstand some serious abuse. The Rode team know what they are doing though and we are happy to say that this headset will have a long life even with repeated use. The spring steel structure keeps its original shape even after being thrown around on stage.
Here's what Rode say about the Lav Headset
The Lav-Headset is an innovative and ergonomic headset-style wearable mount that offers increased versatility for users of the RØDE Lavalier and smartLav+ lapel microphones. It allows the microphone to be worn in close proximity to the mouth for optimal audio performance.
Engineered from spring steel that has been plated for lifelong durability, the mount is designed to hold its shape throughout the rigors of repeated use. Integrated cable management at the rear of the mount ensures that the microphone cable is tightly secured and provides strain relief.
