For me, it is less about the mics and more about the supporting pieces. I was curious about the M10 in the pass through bin. What do they say about it, if anything?

Good stealth mics should never be a problem to get around/through metal detectors

Depends. They will either ignore or they will look at it carefully and tell you no way.

You mean your "MP3 player?" You wouldn't want to leave that in the car to get stolen would you?

Exactly. The M10 mics are discreet enough that anybody just kinda looking at it won't see them. It's just a PCM player!

I guess my M10 MP3 player would benefit from some headphones too.

People have the wrong idea how to stealth today.
Think out of the box. YOU WILL set it off every time if you have metal.
Its how you react and what you say, that will get you in.
You wont sneak metal past good detectors and wands.

I'd never show anything that isn't allowed in the show to security. Sure 90 out of 100 security personnel won't care enough to question it, but why chance that your line has one of the 10 that does?

The amount of metal in your stealth equipment isn't that much. There are better ways to get the minimal amount of metal past the gates.

I have the excuse of all the metal in my neck. Even have a cat scan of it in my wallet. 😈 Got me into Dylan when the walk through detector went off.

Ed is absolutely correct. I adopted his approach a while back and have not yet had a problem. For me, it was more about changing the mindset as opposed to changing the gear.

Thanks. I've got a method that has worked before which I will use tonight. The last time I was here they were using walk through metal detectors, so I'm guessing that they will still be employing those. I was just interested in the comment about putting the M10 in the pass through bin. Thanks everyone.

Add me to the list of what Ed says.  Research and experience are worth a lot.  Still easier than sneaking a PCM-F1/SL2000 which we did back in the day.

I’m in awe of you tapers who hauled all that big heavy gear around. We have it easy when the whole rig fits in a cargo pocket or in the boxers.

I have the PCM-M10 in a Lowepro camera pouch. In NYC venues I put it in the pass-through tub and it always is accepted. MSG, Citifield, MetLife, Beacon, Kings Theatre, Terminal 5. They do not care about anything that is not a weapon. Everyone is doing cellphone video anyway.
