If you’re like me and you’ve been wondering, what is the best lavalier microphone I could buy for online content creation?. Or if you’ve ever wondered why you would need a lav mic, well you’ve come to the right place. I’ve done the research so you don’t have to. And I’m so confident in my choice I went out and bought two with my own money. All my accolades come from me using these little gems!
One thing that has always bothered me when reading a review or trying to find out what I should actually buy is no one actually tells you what to buy. They give you their top 10 choices, top 15 choices, top 20 choices – different prices, different ranges, how the EQ sounds, how this sounds, how that sounds. Well now I’m telling you guys exactly what you should buy – no more thinking, no more second guessing. This Tascam DR-10L lavalier mic and recorder works awesome and I’m going to tell you why.
Which is a no brainer. Dual Recording – Records Two Files Simultaneously at Different Levels – what this means… With the single lav mic you can set two different levels for your voice. So let’s say you have your regular level, and you’re talking along and you get very loud and bam your voice distorts. Not to worry cause you have a 2nd recording of your voice which you set to a lower level thus saving your content!
Wireless Lav System Vs Recorder Lav System ( Tascam DR-10L ). With a wireless system you have 2 components. Wireless transmitter on you and wireless receiver connects to your camera. This system opens you up to a whole lotta RF ( radio frequency ) interference/noise and in some cases complete signal dropout. With the Tascam DR-10L your voice travels directly to mic, down wire to recorder. Which means no interference or loss. You get a good clean recording of yourself!
The compact and lightweight body that is only 2.2oz. (63 g), including battery – often times I forget that I’m actually wearing it. It has been designed to be easy to conceal, which allows me to move around and get that perfect shot with perfect audio. It comes with a durable belt clip or easily slides into a pocket.
The DR-10L uses 1 x AAA Alkaline battery which powers it up to 10 continuous hours. You can also use disposable lithium or rechargeable NiMH batteries. There is a battery level indicator on the OLED screen. Also if by chance the battery does run out, your recording will automatically be saved – whew!
Easy recording with special sliding recording mechanism. No worries of accidentally turning off your recording. You have to hold this switch for a moment to stop recording.
1/8 in headphone jack makes it very easy to listen to what you just recorded!
Locking 1/8 mic jack keeps your mic cord securely attached to the DR-10L
