Lectrosonics announces Earset microphone

Lectrosonics has introduced the HM172 Earset microphone, a nearly invisible device featuring a comfortable, bendable silicone frame that mounts securely to the user’s ear.

Lectrosonics said the new HM172 provides excellent vocal quality. The mic offers a 105mm (4.15inch) boom length that is ideal for providing maximum gain before feedback while keeping the microphone’s omni-directional condenser element away from the wearer’s breath stream to minimize wind noise.

The HM172 is wired standard with a TA5F connector for use with any Lectrosonics UHF belt-pack transmitter, including the UM400a, LMa and SM Series. The HM172’s sensitivity is moderate for use with speech or singing. The included cable is a 53in, enabling the belt-pack transmitter to be positioned nearly anywhere on the body.

Frequency response is 50Hz to 20kHz ± 1dB, while sensitivity is 7mV/Pa with a dynamic range of 93dB and a maximum SPL of 125dB. The HM172 is available in beige and includes a high-frequency peak cap, cable clip and windscreen.
