Wedemark, Germany (April 7, 2021)—Sennheiser has unveiled its latest lav microphone, an omni-directional clip-on mic aimed at content creators. The XS Lav Mobile mic is available in separate versions with TRRS connector and a USB-C connector, respectively, and the USB-C version is also sold as part of a larger Mobile Kit.
The XS Lav USB-C Mobile Kit includes the mic as well as an additional Manfrotto PIXI Mini Tripod and Sennheiser Smartphone Clamp.
The lavaliere microphone is intended to help emerging users upgrade their audio beyond use of onboard mics in cell phones and other capture devices, allowing content creators the ability to mic a sound source (such as themselves) closer and thus help isolate that source.
The mic ships with a 2-meter cable for plugging into a device; a standard USB-C to USB-A adapter will make a XS Lav ready for legacy products, too. For video conferencing, users may want to choose a XS Lav USB-C, as the 3.5 mm jack on XS Lav Mobile will disable a device’s audio output.
All XS Lav mics include a microphone clip, removable foam windshield and a draw-string storage pouch as a standard.
The XS Lav (with TRRS plug) is priced at USD 49.95, while the XS Lav USB-C runs USD 59.95 and the XS Lav USB-C Mobile Kit USD 99.95.
