DK5A Professional Water-Resistant 7mm Omnidirectional Lavalier Microphone for Saramonic, Sennheiser, Rode, Azden, Nady, Senal, Boya and more Wireless Transmitters and Recorders with 3.5mm Input
- Item no: DK5A
The Saramonic DK5A is a water-resistant premium 7mm lavalier microphone for wireless systems. The DK5A delivers crystal-clear sound quality to your productions with its truly excellent sonic performance and can handle the rigors of extremely demanding professional applications. Specially tailored for voice, it delivers a crisp, full-frequency response and increased vocal intelligibility. Its omnidirectional polar pattern provides 360-degrees of sound pickup and is ideal for capturing natural sounding dialog and vocals for stage performances, video productions, news capture, fitness sound, speech and many other applications. Designed to be extremely rugged, but with a premium, professional look, its compact size makes it visually unobtrusive and looks great on camera. At 7mm in diameter, it is easily concealed, disappearing when hidden under clothing, in hair or on costumes.
Ready to get Wet and Dirty
Impervious to water, make-up, sweat and inclement weather the DK5A lavalier is an ideal choice for those demanding filmmaking and stage applications where getting wet and dirty is part of the job. Whether you are recording a news report in a hurricane, filming an action scene on a boat, getting sweaty in the gym, or performing in an intense stage production, the DK5A can handle it. Designed to be used anywhere a normal lavalier wouldn’t be up to the challenge, the DK5A can handle the moisture, dust and debris that would cripple a standard lavalier and keep sounding great. It can even be 100% submerged in water, just shake off the capsule and you’ll be ready for the next shot.
Perfect Sound Anywhere
It doesn’t matter if you’re using the DK5A indoors in a quiet room or outside in a storm—you’re always going to get perfect sound because every critically important windscreen accessory you need are all included. The microphone, metal mesh mic clip, and five included windscreens all fit neatly into pockets in the included compact soft-shell case. When you don’t need to go wireless, plug it in to a portable recorder with 3.5mm input or use the Saramonic C-XLR+ adapter (sold separately) to easily plug the DK5A lavalier into equipment with XLR inputs.
Designed with Care
It’s the little things that make a big difference in the quality of a product, and the DK5A is loaded with them. A good example are the innovative elastic fastening clips on the included furry windscreens. It’s easy to accidentally lose a windscreen, which can potentially jeopardize your day’s work. That’s why the furry windscreens have bands and fasteners. They allow you to wrap the windscreen closely to the mic for added protection from the wind, and to prevent it from falling off.
For Wireless and More
The gold-plated locking 3.5mm connector is compatible with numerous wireless systems from Saramonic, Sennheiser, Rode, Azden, Nady, Senal, Boya and even more, plus audio recorders with 3.5mm microphone inputs with plug-in power from manufacturers like Zoom, Tascam, Sony, Marantz, Roland and more. And because it is standard 3.5mm TRS wiring, it can even be plugged directly into DSLR, Mirrorless and Video Cameras with 3.5mm microphone input that provide plug-in-power.
