Donner DM-1 Lapel Microphone Mini Clip-on Omnidirectional Condenser Lavalier Mic
****(4 Can YOU Hear me now Stars)
My Personal Experience:
I do a great deal of speech to text in my everyday routine. It is so much easier to say what it is that I want to write instead of sitting here trying to text out physically what I want to say. It is less time-consuming to use a microphone then it is to press each and every button forming words. This package includes the lapel microphone, a velvet drawstring bag to carry and protect your microphone and extra pieces, two strong steel clips, and 2 noise dampening windscreens. This is being transcribed from this microphone at the present time. Now with all that being said what I received was the lapel microphone with one steel clip already attached to it, 2 of the noise dampening windscreens, which are pretty much like the foam pads that used to wrap around earphones back in the day, and a nice velvety drawstring bag with instructions. So essentially I am missing the second clip that goes with this device which I'm guessing it's not a huge deal in the grand scheme of things. To use this mic you simply clip it to your lapel, shirt, or whatever area that's close to your mouth and plug in the adapter to the Audio Port of the device you wish to use . . It seems incredibly easy in theory but I attached this very close to my mouth on my shirt and for some reason this did not pick up what I was saying at all. The only way that I could get it to pick up anything that I was saying was to hold it in my hand directly in front of my mouth and speak rather slowly so it could be understood. I looked through the manual to see if there was anything that I was doing that was wrong but apparently everything that I'm doing is correct except for this one tiny little detail that I was not aware of. Apparently the very first thing but it says on the user manual is that it is designed for vocal or video use with Apple iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, iPad (again) and most Apple computers. WELL the fact that I have an android phone kind of makes this a little bit difficult. So which begs the question is the fact that I'm using this on an android device the reason I cannot pick up my voice unless I'm pretty much eating the microphone or is it just a defect in the microphone itself, I have no idea. I do know however that the only reason that I purchased this microphone was A. So i would not have to hold the microphone and B. I could just easily clip it to my shirt and effortlessly do what I need to do, hands-free. Unfortunately again for me this is not something I can do, so I guess I will have to go back to my trusted earbuds with mic or type out everything I need to say. There is a small pro to this mic, if you wish to call a pro, it picks up almost everything I say reasonably clearly. Of course there are a great many things that it does not pick up correctly but it's just like any other microphone! This is just my personal experience using this microphone but hopefully you have better results than I have had. It really does look and feel like quality device.
