SONY PCM-D100 & Wired LAV mics
« on: October 20, 2018, 06:53:25 PM »
I have a D100 and am mulling the purchased of a wired LAV mic which does not have any battery or amp.  It's just the mic and wire.  Have any of you D100 users tested any wired LAV mics that are not powered, plugging them directly into the D100's external mic input and switching the D100's Plug-in Power setting to ON?  Any details of your experience with wired LAVs would be appreciated.  (Example wired LAVs that are NOT powered: Sennheiser ME2, ME2-II, MKE2, Senal OLM-2, etc.)

Thank you.

Why not just purchase a lav mic that requires plug-in-power rather than phantom? Naiant, Micboosters, Audiotalaia, MicrophoneMadness and LOM all offer lav mics (or stereo pairs) that use PiP.

I use a couple stereo lav pairs (MM BSM-7 & LOM mikro-Usi) with a D100, and they work well with it.

I believe he was specifically asking about plug in power mics.

The D100 has close to 5 volts PIP and in my experience will run just about any PIP mic without a battery box without distortion.

Thank you for the replies and for confirming the D100 has 5V Plug-in Power.  After spending many hours watching YouTube video reviews and listening to audio samples, I decided to go with a low cost LAV to test in my D100 and also in my GH5's mic input.  I went with this:

The audio samples I have heard put it right up there with the more expensive Rode LAV.  The Rode has a tad more gain, but when used with the D100 that doesn't matter much.  The name is stupid and so is the purple furry wind screen, but I only care about getting good vocals from my lapel so that doesn't matter much.  I'll report back with my findings after it arrives.
