- Rode PinMic Lapel Microphone
While lapel microphones are the industry standard for close-mic presenters and talent, their placement on a collar or lapel can be distracting. The RØDE PinMic™ features a detachable capsule head with omni-directional polar pattern that mounts onto three pins on the microphone backplate, providing a discreet alternative that can be located almost anywhere on a wide range of clothing and fabrics. This lightweight and easy to position lapel mic has an ultra discreet appearance that gives a high quality performance with low handling noise in a miniature microphone capsule. The RØDE MiconTM interconnectivity system provides seamless integration between the mic itself and a variety of wireless systems as well as cameras, consoles, and portable recorders.
Product Features in Detail
Discreet lavalier/lapel microphone
The RØDE PinMic™ is a discreet lavalier/lapel microphone with an innovative pin-through design that is not only easier to conceal than a traditional lapel microphone, but provides greater mounting versatility.
Comprised of a cabled backplate and a removable omni-directional capsule head, the PinMic™ is easily mounted onto any clothing or fabric by simply pushing the backplate pins through the back of the fabric and sliding the capsule into place on the front. The microphone backplate and cable are hidden behind the fabric, and the capsule head can be easily disguised, covered or decorated to further conceal the microphone.
9mm deep and 11mm in diameter
The PinMic™ capsule is discrete at only 9mm deep and 11mm in diameter, and is supplied with both a black and an unpainted silver mesh head that can be further camouflaged by painting. The microphone easily mounts through any fabric up to 1.5mm (0.006") thick without any damage to clothing. A longer pin version (PinMic-Long) is available for mounting on thicker fabrics (up to 3.5mm/0.14" thick).
Detachable Kevlar® reinforced cable
The microphone capsule is connected via a 1.2m (4') shielded, detachable Kevlar® reinforced cable that has been rigorously strain tested to ensure reliable performance.
The included mini-furry for high wind protection ensures quality recordings in adverse environments, while the anti-trauma water resistant case provides rugged and secure protection for the microphone, a spare capsule head, the microphone cable and included accessories.
The PinMic™ is an ideal solution for film, television, video, theatre, house of worship and anywhere where a high quality microphone needs to be heard but not seen.
MiCon™ connector system
Knowing that versatility is paramount in any product, RØDE has developed the MiCon™ connector system which provides seamless integration between the PinMic™ and a wide range of wireless systems as well as consoles, cameras and portable recorders.
