Monday 28th March 2011, Sydney Australia – RØDE Microphones is happy to announce the release of three new MiCon™ connectors to add additional compatibility with its line of compact wearable microphones that include the RØDE Lavalier, HS-1 headset and the innovative RØDE PinMic™.
The MiCon-6 adaptor provides connectivity with selected AKG systems including the PT40, PT60, PT61, PT80, PT81, PT400, PT2000 and PT4000. The MiCon-7 adaptor provides connectivity with selected Lectrosonics systems including the SM, UMa and LMa Series, as well as the UM450. The MiCon-8 adaptor provides connectivty for the Sony UWP series of wireless transmitters.
Released in late 2010, the original five MiCon™ adaptors allow for connectivity with both 3.5mm stereo and XLR as well as selected wireless systems from manufacturers including Shure, Sennheiser and Audio Technica. For a full list of compatibility and to find the right MiCon™ for your needs, simply visit www.rodemic.com/micon.
RØDE has also announced an additional PinMic™ with longer pins to allow for use with heavier clothing and fabric. Both PinMics offer a unique and innovative take on the traditional lapel microphone. While lapel microphones are the industry standard for close-miking presenters and talent, depending on the application their presence on a collar or lapel can be distracting or entirely undesirable. The PinMic™ features a detachable capsule head 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.
The RØDE Lavalier, HS-1 (black/pink), PinMic™, entire suite of MiCon™ adaptors, cables are shipping now and will be available shortly from all authorised RØDE retailers.
