Microphone sound quality is good. Pity about the cable.

By Phil H

from Merseyside, UK

Pros

  • Clear Sound
  • Compact
  • Easy To Use
  • Lightweight

Cons

  • Breaks Easily
  • Unreliable

Best Uses

    Comments about Audio-Technica AT831B Lavalier Condenser Microphone:

    We use these mics in church. Sound is good but cable is quite delicate and soon strands of wire snap so that when the cable moves the sound crackles and bangs. Tight bends in the cable are unavoidable in use. Doubt this is covered by the two year guarantee. We use these because they are best value. More expensive mics have the same poor cable. A stiffer cable would make all the difference.

    Good microphone but could use more mounting options

        Comments about Audio-Technica AT831B Lavalier Condenser Microphone:

        I bought this microphone to use on acoustic guitar. The included sound hole mount works and the adjustment allows for some limited tonal adjustments. Audio-Technica should consider offering additional instrument mounts for this quality microphone such as the 4099G mount offered by DPA that positions the microphone over the fretboard of the guitar for more natural sound. I prototyped an alternative such mount and the results are encouraging.
