Comments about Audio-Technica AT898 Subminiature Cardioid Condenser Lavalier Microphone:
Sensitive enough to do just about anything you want to do with it. Don't try to operate it without a wind screen on it however. Sound quality second to no other piece of equipment. Ours get's pretty steady (at least twice a week) use and after 3+ years still hanging in there. Couldn't find and still can't find a dealer to service us. Whoever sold total unit didn't hide a business card anyplace. All the people who were involved now moved or gone. This internet site can't come up with a service or sales rep either much less a dealer.

A:The wireless version of the AT898 (wired) that will work with Audio-Technica UniPak Bodypack Transmitters is the AT898cW. This includes the ATW-T310b transmitter. The microphone needs to have a "cW" in the title in order to be compatible with most Audio-Technica wireless transmitters.
