Small but noisy

Purchased this microphone since I needed a very small mic that would be able to capture just the speakers voice, without all the overhead noise in our environment. The mic is small - Check The mic eliminates ambient room sound - Check If that is all it did, I would love it. BUT, the mic also seems to capture the sound of the cord whenever it moves on the individual. The slightest movement of the shirt is like running a piece of sandpaper across the top of the microphone. We actually had to start taping down the cord on the person to get quiet recordings.
