    • Q:

      Will this lav mic work with a Sony Handycam HDR-CX260V?

      I need a relatively inexpensive but decent-quality portable lav system that can plug easily into the camera (1/8" stereo jack) and clip to the wearer without a lot of bulky transmitters and receivers. Thank you!

        The AM3 will not work. It is designed specifically for use with our Wireless IEM Receiver packs. The pack provides bias voltage to power the microphone on the RING of the plug, not the tip which is more common.

        I recommend our ATR3350iS Omnidirectional wired Lavalier microphone (with an attached 20 foot cable) for your application.The mic provides its own power via a button cell battery located in an inline power module. The module also contains an On/Off switch. Do NOT use the provided Smartphone adapter when connecting the mic to your camera.

    • Q:

      is there an xlr adapter to use this mike with a cable instead of wireless system? (similar to Sennheiser MZA900P)

      • A:

        There is not. This mic was designed specifically for use as an ambient microphone to be used in conjunction with our wireless in ear monitor systems receiver pack. It requires 5 V DC on the ring of its 3.5 mm stereo connector.
        If you remove the 3.5 mm plug and re-terminate the mic to a TA3F type connector, we have phantom power adapters that will allow you to use it with a cable.

    • Q:

      Will this work with a ATW-T210?

      • A:

        No it will not. The AM3 is designed to be used specifically with our Wireless In-Ear Monitor Systems Receiver packs as an ambient microphone. It uses a 3.5mm plug, and is expecting to see +5V DC on the Ring. Our MT830cW is the same microphone element designed specifically for use with our wireless microphone systems which feature a Unipak model bodypack Transmitter. The ATW-T210 you mention is such a Transmitter. It uses a 4-pin female connector that is expecting to see bias voltage from the Transmitter on pin 4.Use the MT830cW Lavalier Microphone instead.

      Where is the volume control on M3 receiver for this ambient mic?

      • A:

        Thank you for your inquiry. The volume is set via the menu on the M3 receiver. First, make sure the Aux input is set to microphone (not line) in the menu and then adjust your volume accordingly. This informationa can be found in the manual for the M3 system.

        Thank you for your inquiry. It will work, but not as well as the AM3 that is designed for this system. Please note that the ATR3350 is desined to plug into a stereo microphone level input.

        Thank you for your inquiry. This will not work with teh 600 series wireless system. You need any of our lavalier microphones that have a "cW" in the name such as AT831cW or MT830cW.
