    So there were a few people on here that put this mic down. Let me just say that if you are stuck with a very strict budget but need to add production value to a shoot, this mic is a no brainer!

    Here's a video I recently shot using the mic with a 3.5>XLR adapter into a Tascam DR40. There is only one downside to using this MIC and that is is that it's wired. My subject ran off to grab something and yanked my Tascam recorder off the table popping the batteries out. There is a section that the DR40 failed because the batteries popped out while in pause mode. You can hear the difference between raw camera audio compared to audio with the MIC and the DR40. I did tests with the MIC directly into my D7100 and the results were night and day compared to the internal MIC.

    Purchased in Toronto from great vendor who automatically included alternate tie clip as AT supplied reportedly break when connecting to mic. Sure enough it does right out of the box. Using with Samsung Note 5 for Periscope. So many audio test Private Periscopes to determine working. After several dozen and numerous battery replacements, finally working. Audio quality is okay, not great. But getting to this point took several days of frustration. Better to pay for more expensive but user promoted mic like Rode Lav...We have the USB NTSB and its Great so went with lav thinking reviews must be incorrect?

            I don't know if this is common but in my opinion the sound captured by the ATR3350 should be crystal clear. Every time I recordo someone talking, in a complete quiet room, there's this noise with the voice. Why is this? Is the microphone bad or am I doing something wrong?

            I'm recording it using a Canon 60D.

              Hi, Considering a debate/tv-set ...I am planning to connect 8 x Audio-Technica ATR-3350 mics to a "Behringer Q1202USB 12-Channel Mixer" in order to mix, equalize and use the mixer's RCA output to digital recording this sound in a computer. Is this possible with this equipments or you have any suggestion?

                Comments about Audio-Technica ATR3350 Omnidirectional Condenser Lavalier Microphone:

                I have had some up and down experiences. Because there is no on-off light I have had the embarrassing experience of conducting an interview and then discovering I had not turned on the mike.

                Also because of the lack of a light I have left the mike on after the project and run down the battery.

                I can certainly take the blame for these two operator errors. BUT when I try to replace the battery I find the space so small that I cannot hold the spring down and insert the battery at the same time. Terrible design flaw as far as I am concerned.

                If there is an easy way to replace the battery please let me know.

                    This mic hasn't worked since the day I open the packaging. I have bought new batteries, used it on a Windows 8 laptop, Macbook, and an iPhone. So the only explination that I can think of is that I received a brand new mic that cannot function. I am extremely displeased.

                    This microphone's sensitivity is listed at -54 dB basd on 2 units. It's sensitivity is ABOUT -70 dB, typical of a hand-held microphone. Lapel microphones need to be about 10 times (20 dB) as sensitive as a hand-held microphones. They are farther away from the sound source and they need to be omnidirectional vs. directional for hand-held mic.

                              Don't listen to the naysayers. This mic works great if you use it for the task it's intended for. I simply plug it into my video camera (using a mono adapter), clip it to my shirt and the sound is crystal clear. And considering the low price, the thing is a Godsend, making good video sound a breeze.

                              And no, I don't work for Audio-Technica. This is the first of their products I've ever bought and used�and it won't be the last.

                                  The signal coming from the ATR3350 is unbalanced. However, a vast majority of 3.5mm inputs (including 3.5mm microphone inputs) are also unbalanced.

                                  The ATR3350 microphone is a "dual mono" which means that the element is a single mono microphone element but is duplicated to be sent to both a left and right channel on a stereo source.

                                I purchased my ATR3350, installed the battery and tried it out - but there's absolutely no change in the sound whether the microphone is on or off! I do get sound from the microphone, but the sound is very weak. I have to boost the gain by over 1000% (inducing a lot of noise) in order to make it discernible.

                                I've checked the batter (it's good at 1.59V) and I've even tried recording w/o a battery (gives the same results, i.e. sound comes through, high boosting needed). Does this mean that the microphone's power supply is broken somehow?

                                Is this product also made as a headset mic? I am a tour guide and want to use the mic through the van stereo sound system by plugging into the audio jack?

                                What type of battery does this take? The one it came with has no description and I've tried to replace it with 2 similar looking duracell's but nothing works.
