Broadcast quality, professional-grade Lavalier Mic with TRRS Jack High-quality omni-directional condenser capsule Discrete 4.5mm miniature microphone Compatible with iOS devices and select Android devices* Kevlar® reinforced cable Includes wind shield and durable mounting clip Twelve month warranty The smartLav+ is a broadcast-grade wearable microphone designed for use in a wide range of film, television and broadcast scenarios, or wherever broadcast quality audio is required in a discreet, portable format without the complication and expense of additional wireless equipment.
With the smartLav+ the user simply mounts the microphone on the talent, connects it to a smartphone or tablet headset jack and records via the RØDE Rec app for iOS, or any other audio app of their choice. By employing a professional quality omni-directional condenser capsule the smartLav+ picks up sound equally from all around the microphone, allowing for versatility when mounting and ensuring a high degree of user-friendly operation. A foam pop shield is supplied to minimise wind noise and vocal plosives (hard ‘b’, ‘t’ and ‘p’ sounds), as well as a durable mounting clip with in-built cable management. Its Kevlar® reinforced cable ensures that you never stretch or snap your microphone under normal usage conditions. The smartLav+ is compatible with any audio app that accepts input from the headset connection, however it has been designed to pair perfectly with RØDE’s RØDE Rec app for Apple iOS devices. RØDE Rec turns the user’s iOS device into a fully-featured field recorder, with a wide range of equalisation presets to suit various recording situations, in addition to professional editing functions and the ability to publish to SoundCloud and Dropbox direct from the app. SmartLav+ Specifications Acoustic Principle Permanently Polarise Active Electronics JFET Capsule 0.10″ Polar Pattern Address Type End Frequency Range 60Hz – 18kHz Output Impedance 3000O Maximum SPL 110dBSPL Maximum Output Level 189.0mV (@ 1kHz, 1% THD into 1KO load) Sensitivity -35.0dB re 1 Volt/Pascal (17.80mV @ 94 dB SPL) +/- 2 dB @ 1kHz Equivalent Noise Level (A-weighted) 27dBA Weight 6.00g Dimensions 1180.00mmH x 4.50mmW x 4.50mmD Output TRRS Output Warranty 1 year
