Novato, CA (May 17, 2012)—Point Source Audio has launched its CO-7L, which is a miniature lavalier version of its CO-7 earworn microphone.
According to the company, the CO-7L fills a need for speakers in broadcast or theater production who generally prefer or need an "invisible" option. The CO-7L element can be hidden in the hairline, behind a button or attached to eyeglasses. It is also water-resistant to be more resilient against humidity and moisture stemming from breath or perspiration.
The CO-7L is an omni-directional, condenser microphone that reportedly handles up to 140 dB SPL, and is offered in multiple colors to allow matching or blending to hair, skin or clothing.
"Customers that love our CO-7 earworn mic have been asking us for a sister lavalier for quite some time," said Yvonne Ho, vice president of marketing for Point Source Audio. "There are definitely advantages and applications for both an earworn and lavalier—earworn mics are extremely easy to fit, while miniature lavs can be completely camouflaged."
