  1. No, they lose a little charge a day or two after you charge them. They have a minimum and a maximum capacity.
  2. By the way, how do you guys recharge your batteries? You use them completely before recharging or with charge left?
  3. My K-tek Avalon collars are destroying the K-tek gloves I got from pro-sound . They are coarse compared to the Klassic. The good thing about this is that it makes it easier to expand and collapse. The bad thing is that I like the feel of the Klassic collars better. I never used an internal cabled pole before getting my Avalon, but just after a few hours I got used to it and rid of the noise. Didn't try other brand yet
  4. I just ran around my house with the Invision, a 416 and a softie and didn't hear any noise from the suspension. Only footsteps and breath.
  5. They are a customizable version of the DT 770 and usually more expensive
  6. Hello, If using a headphone monitor with a XLR pass-through like the Rolls PM55P, does it matter if I am using cables with a different brand, spec? If not, then in which case using different cables can become a problem? Until now I have only used one cable from source to equipment, unless going through mixers or preamps. Thanks.
  7. I use some JK 044. There is some comparison in youtube. I find it better than the me2. I have used the sanken cos 11d rented and even though they are very good, I found these chinese to be a better match to Sennheiser mics. I will be holding them until I have the cash for DPA.
  8. Got this response from Rode: "As you'll see form the web page it does in fact ship with the Rode Lavalier microphone (while it is not included on the web page I would assume it will also ship with the micon-1 adapter in order to be able to connect the LAV to the transmitter)." So it is the Rode Lavalier and the connector is a Sennheiser locking 3.5mm. Regarding the sound, I have seen and used chinese lavalier that sounds better than Rode, Sennheiser ME 2 and even Sanken. Haven't seen one that sounds better than a DPA though. And they are cheap. But they are also much more fragile and less durable. Sometimes price don't change sound quality but almost always changes build quality.

    First mic - 416 or 50

    I have been wondering that myself. The 416 is very popular and has the toughness fame. But isn't the 50 as tough as the 416?

    Nice, I will travel in the beggining of March. I didn't find much used gear on the TAI website, so maybe they don't post everything. Also, Pro sound doesn't have a MKH 50 on the used section of their website, they also don't say which store each gear belongs to. Anyway, 1 or 2 weeks before going to the USA I will send a message. I will arrive and leave US through Fort Lauderdale's airport (coincidence)

    Here in Brazil we basically use Sennheiser. There are some Neumann (mostly studio) and almost no Schoeps. I have seen DPA lavs. Recently Rode is becoming very popular, it is easier and cheaper to find, and you can pay 12x. So if I want a NTG 3 to go with the 50, I could buy it here. The main reason is Technical Assistance and Warranty. There is Sennheiser, Neumann and Rode support. The other reason is climate. Also, being my first mic, I think I am already spending too much going higher than $1000. I thought about getting used mics, but I am going to Florida only, and my options are limited. Shipping to hotel doesn't really seem a good idea.
  12. Hi, I have been using the ME66/K6 most of the time and sometimes a 416. Now I am going to the USA and have the opportunity to buy my own mic. The 416 do sell here in my country for twice the price ($2000), like every other gear that I can find, but I can't find a new or used MKH 50 to buy. I would have to import and pay 60% plus other taxes (eg: 788t = $11,069) I was thinking of getting the MKH 50 to use both indoors and outdoors with a rycote WS2 or a Small Super Shield. Later I could perhaps buy an 8060 that could even fit the same rycote. But many have had problems with the 8060 and say the "416 is a must have in every kit". I will be shooting around 75% indoors 25% outdoors.
