Let the star stand out, not the microphone
The LC81 MD reference lightweight cardioid lavalier microphone makes a name for itself by not stealing the show. With a diameter of only 4.8mm, and a length of 10mm, it’s one of the smallest cardioid lavaliers available. And at only 2g, the LC81 MD won’t weigh down lengthy performances—in fact, the stars will hardly know that it’s there.
But that’s just its size. When it comes to sound, its sensitive cardioid polar pattern picks up a wide range of frequencies—from bass to soprano—and provides flexibility in getting the best sound from the source. Placed close to the performer, it accurately picks up low-end frequencies; place it farther away for performances in a higher range.
Available in four colors, the LC81 MD is inconspicuous on every user.
