Considerations when renting or leasing a lapel microphone
If you need to rent or lease a lapel microphone, you should consider just how many you actually need. Solo projects may only need to have a single system, but those who are conducting interviews will need one for each of the subjects being interviewed concurrently. In addition, consider the brand of microphone to ensure you are choosing a device that produces a good and clear sound.

Features of lapel microphones

Most of the lapel microphones are very similar regardless of the manufacturer. They have similar clips, transmitters, and receivers, and the actual controls on the body pack and receiver are very similar. Some may come with various grills that mount onto the tip of the microphone.

How lapel microphones work

A lapel microphone will come in two separate pieces called the transmitter and the receiver. The transmitter, which will be picking up the sound, is the actual microphone portion of the system. This will transmit the sound that the microphone picks up to the receiver, which will plug into the audio recording device. The microphone will attach to the transmitter device, which is typically quite small and worn on the belt or another part of the body. The actual lapel microphone is usually worn between the chest and the throat to get the best sound, but this is something you will have to experiment with to find the sweet spot.

About lapel microphones

A lapel microphone, also known as a lavalier microphone, is a very small microphone that will attach to a person's clothing. The microphone is positioned in a location that makes it possible to pick up speech from the person who is wearing the microphone. In some cases, the microphone will actually attach to a lapel. Other times, it will attach to ties or other pieces of clothing with small clips. The microphones vary in size and style, and they are very useful in a number of different applications, as you can see below.
