Make sure you're buying the one that includes the battery power pack. I have included an audio sample from the store, which I recorded with my Zoom H4. There was some loud music playing on the speakers, so it'll give you a good idea of how it might sound under such circumstances. The Pro70 battery pack was powering the mic (not Zoom H4's phantom power). I was impressed with the sound of this mic, and the overall quality. It doesn't have the dynamic range of the next model up in the series (the 831b, which I own) but when you switch on the low-cut of the 831b, it and the Pro-70 sound virtually identical. I like this mic, and feel it's a good value for someone looking for a professional XLR mic that has good sound. Again, I find I generall prefer to swich on the "low cut" switch with my 831b anyway, so there's little reason to spend more than this if you're, say, a podcaster or wedding video place looking for excellent audio quality and bang for the buck. By the way, if it sounds a bit overdriven, that's my fault -- not the mic. I had my levels too high.

I bought this to replace the $20 Audio Technica lavalier mic, which has a very thin cord that tangles like crazy at the slightest provocation and is only a slight improvement over built-in camera mics. You can really tell the difference in the sound of this Pro Series mic -- it's rich and clear, even with music in the background. (I'm using it for video interviews.) Also, the attached cord is thicker, and easier to keep from getting tangled.

Don't forget (like I did) to order a cord to plug into your camera or recorder! This is the one I got for my Nikon D3200:

Since receiving this product I have used it extensively. Its performance is absolutely phenomenal for single user interviews. Even in a crowded hall, the audio quality of the subject is picked up and those around are filtered out (there is some background noise of the crowd but most of it isn't picked up). It uses a single AA battery that lasts forever, I've even left it on in the camera bag and a couple days later I pulled it out and the microphone still operated. This microphone is a must have for any videographer.

I searched for weeks (phone calls to electronic & music stores AND visiting a multitude of websites) trying to find a lavalier mic with it's own battery pack (not phantom power) that delivered high quality sound to use with a standard house system AND with my 1/8" HD camcorder external microphone jack. With this microphone and an XLR female to 1/8" stereo jack adapter I "FINALLY" have the perfect solution to meet my needs. I talked to SO MANY AUDIO & ELECTRONIC PROFESSIONALS who told me that what I was looking for DID NOT exist and that I had to settle for a $29 Radio Shack poor fidelity 1/8" jack microphone. They were ALL WRONG. This is the perfect solution. Quality sound in a quality package. It was a little pricey -- $200+ for the mic and the adaptor and an extra high quality 25' microphone cord, but it is just what I needed for guest speaking engagements and recording videos (to see video recording I did using this microphone go to youtube and cut and paste the following description: "5 Tips: How To Avoid Charitable Giving Scams by Brian Kluth, Generosity Expert & Bestselling Author" - - - - - or got to:[...]be

I've used this mic for 2 interviews. The sound is excellent, very rich & full. The only issue I have is the handling noise. If you move even the cable a little you can hear it....not super loud, but you can hear it. Your talent must be very still and you must route the cable in a way that it is secured to the clothing somehow to avoid the noise. The sound of the mic is well worth the low price, but be warned, you need to secure it well.

I got this microphone (actually, two of them) because I wanted decent sound, but I don't have $400 to spend on a lavalier mic (or $800 to spend on two). For the money, the sound is great! No, it's not $400 sound, but it's reasonably close, and it is several cuts above the sound from a $25 cheapie. If you've got the $400 to spend, don't scrimp on a microphone--get the best one you can. You will never regret it. But if you are on a budget and are forced to compromise, this is a good unit.

This is a nice microphone. Not a great microphone, but still a nice one. I recommend it for amateurs and semi pros, at least until they learn why you might even want a better microphone. I've used a few of these for several years of running studio and location interviews and they've been very dependable and really help cut out background noise and wind.

If you can't justify $400 on a super duper lav mic, buy this one.

Nothing screams "amateur" in a video like bad audio. Unless that is the effect that you are looking for, you're going to need to get beyond the microphone on that camcorder or camera. So, the first thing to do to get good audio with your video is to invest in a separate microphone. Now, although a good quality microphone is important, what is more important is getting that microphone close to the talent (or the interviewee, or family member, etc.) Lavaliers are in an excellent position to do that as they are pinned directly to the person you're filming, and make a huge difference over the microphone on the camera.

The Audio Technica Pro 70 is a good choice. It is low cost, can run on a battery or phantom power, and gets the job done. It is a balanced (XLR) mic, giving the videographer a good, clean signal. It isn't for everyone, however. You will have to buy an adapter if you have a camcorder with a miniplug, or else record your audio separately and sync it up with the footage later. It is a wired mic, so your subject can't be running around. In that case, a wireless lavalier or a boomed shotgun mic would be more appropriate. The power pack and the mic are permanently wired together, so if you want to use a different type or style of lavalier mic, you are out of luck.

All in all, when used in what it does best- interviews- it does an excellent job.
