On this video, our colleague photographer and videographer Curtis Judd, take a look at the Voice Technologies VT500 Lavalier mic and how it performs.
Swiss manufacturer Voice Technologies has been making the VT500 Lavalier mic for several years now and on this video Judd test it out on a man and woman voice and does a quick compasion to the great Sanken COS-11D lavalier mic (both sounds very good in this test especially for a man’s voice).
By the way, in 2017 Voice Technologies released a new version of the VT500 that are waterproof (the VT500WA and VT506WA) so if you are working in a very wet environment maybe it is a good idea to check out these versions.
Here are a few specs for this pro level mic:
- Frequency Response: 40 Hz to 20 kHz
- It ahs an Omnidirectional Polar Pattern.
- 3.5mm Mini Connector/ Lemo 3-pin or 6-pin/pigtail lead/TA4F/microdot (you can order any of those).
- Flexible Cable for isolates rubbing noise.
- Shockproof and RF Protected plastic outer shell
- Includes Windscreen and several mounting clips in the water protected box.
- Price: $293 (you can get the same mic with a simpler box and fewer accessories for just $200).
