Point Source Embrace Earmount

Recommended Posts

https://www.point-sourceaudio.com/products/microphones/earmount/

 

Have any forum members given these a go? I'd really like to try them out but the cost is putting me off a speculative investment as you have to buy a minimum of 6 and they wont mix the colours. It looks like a great idea and the design makes them a bit easier to carry around in a lightweight kit for use on the off chance.

Hi Daniel,

 

The EMBRACE Earmounts are sold as accessories to the EMBRACE Microphone. EMBRACE Earmounts hold two patents and are custom-fit for Point Source Audio lavalier microphones having a standard cable diameter of 1.5mm. We do not guarantee the fit for other brands of lavalier mics, but the Earmounts can fit cable diameters from 1mm up to 2mm.

 

If you'd like to learn about how others have used EMBRACE, please check out the video here from a location sound mixer in Los Angeles:

And here is a story from Televisa on how they're using it in their studio broadcast on actors.

The mic element itself is the same one used on a majority of the Broadway and West End Productions:

I hope you find this info helpful!

@Techie23 , would be a great idea if you offered these in a smaller pack of 3 which came in a mix of one of each color? Am sure then many of us would be interested in it as another optional tool in our kit.

Just looked up the price for the six pack of the mounts.  They come in three left hand and three right hand configurations.  Its a great idea but $300 for these is much more than I expected.

In the US, at least, a number of dealers sell these individually, so you don't have to buy six at once. Are there Point Source dealers in the UK? Or do you mean that you need six?

@IronFilm  @daniel  We hear you.

 

Our EMBRACE design originated for theatre to solve the time consuming task of hand-tooling "ear rigs" for large casts...thus their packaging in bulk. Its awesome they're finding their way into other applications for TV and film. In the U.S. Trew Audio in Los Angeles can offer these as one-off. https://www.trewaudio.com/

You may have to call or email them though as this is a special item. 

 

If a 3-Pack is interesting for folks here, please "raise your hand" and we will be sure to pass this on to our Marketing team. Thanks for all the input!

I just realised they come in left/right as well, plus three different colours, so I guess you could sell a six pack as usual but a mix bag with one of every type of the six different versions you make? (if I counted it right, there are six types?)

Makes more sense for us who just need exactly the right tool at hand to solve just one problem perhaps on set, rather than theatre folk who are dealing with large casts.

@IronFilm

That's right: L/R each in beige, brown and black = 6 units.  Traditionally, lavs are most popular in beige and black, but with camouflaging using EMBRACE, we recommend matching the mic to the hair rather than skin tone so all 3 colors will come in handy. The material can also be custom colored with markers for extreme camouflage.

 

What are your preferred outlets for purchasing gear?

Thanks Techie23. I had a look on Trew's website but didn't find the listing.

@daniel Sorry about that; looking into it. Will get back to you!

Anybody have an idea where the microphone or elements are sourced.  Curious how they sound to DPA or Cos-11.

@drpro 

Thank you for your question!  PSA is often compared to Sanken & DPA. It’s important to understand which “flavor” though in an apples to apples comparison. 

 

We have both a HIGH and LOW sensitivity lavalier mic for different applications. https://www.point-sourceaudio.com/products/microphones/lavalier/co-8wl-omni/.

 

If you’d like to hear from someone who’s using the product, check out the video here: https://www.point-sourceaudio.com/markets/broadcast/.
