The HQ-M lavalier is designed to connect to recorders in mono. Our HQ series of lavaliers feature an omni-directional polar pattern that provides a dynamic range of sound capture. All of these features are enclosed in a small package which is great for filmmakers as the lavalier is minimally visible on the talent. Included are a pair of foam windscreens that help reduce wind noise. The microphone clip provides a secure fastening point for mounting and is easily removed for alignment and/or passage through small openings.
Our Aspen Mono Lav mics record to one track (left side) as opposed to two tracks (both left and right). Some audio recorders can be set to mono mode and double it's recording time. The Mono Lav mic also require less gain from your audio recorder (or camera's) internal preamp allowing for a cleaner recording.
[Note: As with most mono microphones you will need to duplicate the audio track in post video editing to both channels prior to exporting. See Mono vs. Stereo Tips]

Why are your lav microphones cheaper than other lavs?
In the world of big business, you have distributors that import products into different countries, which work with sales people that specialize in regions, who then hand the product over to retail chains for sale. This process often requires a certain percentage increase for each step in the process, often requiring up to a 90% increase in pricing.
At this time, we are still a small company that ships products directly from our USA warehouse with products only available through our online channels. At the moment we are able to offer pricing much lower than other microphones found in retail stores or with retail partners.
Unfortunately every business needs to expand, and as we begin to partner with retail stores our prices will have to be increased to support the new supply chain. So it's a great time to take advantage of our small business and our great pricing.
