Way professional sound on videos

Easy to use, great sound quality. Our application is for yoga videos. We needed a low-profile headset instead of the lapel clip, so we ordered a wire headset "blank" that allowed us to clip the mic on it. Works great. And, I'm always impressed with the service here. Got to me fast and the service reps were very helpful.

Great product bad clip

Sennheiser makes great gear. This mic is no exception. Purchased for DSLR videography - it works great. Only problem is the cheap plastic clip that broke the first time I went to use it. Sennheiser graciously replaced it, but a better quality clip would make more sense.

Mic clip does not work!!!!!!

The mic clip simply does not work. I purchased a spare clip from BH which arrived the same time as my system that I ordered from Sweetwater. They were distinctly different clips and neither fit the mic that came with the system. I bought the system for a doc I am shooting, and apart from the clip issue, they seem fine, for a wireless system at this price range anyways. Even on vacant channels, in some places the receiver had to be perfectly still and aimed perfectly in a particular direction to avoid extreme static; but in another location it didn't matter what was happening, crystal clear the entire time. Not to harp, but the clip issue was a pain. I even showed the clips to a professional sound recordist and he said no way they were meant for this mic. I called Sweetwater and while they did send a replacement out very quickly, it was the same faulty clip. The whole thing would have been a wash without Rycote Undercovers.
