    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?

      Comments about Audio-Technica ATR3350 Omnidirectional Condenser Lavalier Microphone:

      Poor sound from day 1. Low audio. Yes, the battery was fresh. I wore it on my collar and I do not speak softly. But the audio recording is far short of the standard range I have gotten using either my iPhone or iPhone headphones. It was low enough that I could not distinguish whether it was muffled as well.

      Also, why no battery indicator? How are you supposed to know the battery is low or dead? Leave it up to chance?

      I would have paid 50% more for good audio and a low battery indicator.

      Great promise, poor delivery.

              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.

                              I own two of these and my customers keep losing the clothing clips for these. Is there another clip that fits this now that they are discontinued and if so is there a part number that I can check with my supplier to see if they carry?

                              How long is the battery life? There is no indicator to let me know if the battery is low and dont want to end up with silent video after a long session of filming.

                                The battery life for the ATR3350 is typically around 1,000 hours.

                                The battery should last around 1000 hours. The replacement is an LR44, also known as an AG13.

                                Your best bet would be to send them into our Service department. You can find information on doing so on our website under the tab labeled "Support".

                              I'm curious. How can a wired lavalier microphone be considered a good option for an aerobics instructor? Wouldn't that type of use demand the use of a wireless device?

                                For someone looking for aerobics use, the ATR3350 would not be a good choice for the reasons you suggested. I'd suggest one of our wireless systems like the System 8, System 9, or System 10 which come in many varieties including headworn microphones for aerobics.

                                The ATR3350 is wired as a "dual mono" signal and this microphone is not recommend to use with unmatched input connections.
