Lavalier Microphone (Photo Credit: PowerMax.com)With more and more people recording video and producing music, there are some new terms you may begin hearing. One of them is “Lavalier Microphone.”

Lavalier microphones are small microphones that can be clipped onto a person’s shirt to record their voice. They usually have their own power source in the form of a small battery pack with one AA battery. The small size of lavalier microphones make them ideal for sit-down interviews as they provide a close perspective sound and block out a lot of ambient sound such as traffic and wind. Many lavalier microphones are omni-directional, which means that the direction it is pointing is not significant. However, this also means that it can pick up other voices or sounds from nearby, which can distort the speaker’s voice.
