Sennheiser Launches XS Lav Mobile Mic

The XS Lav Mobile mic is an omnidirectional clip-on mic aimed at content creators

Sennhesier, microphones, lavalierSennheiser has unveiled its latest lavalier microphone, an omnidirectional clip-on mic aimed at content creators. The XS Lav Mobile mic is available in separate versions with TRRS connector and a USB-C connector, respectively, and the USB-C version is also sold as part of a larger Mobile Kit.

The XS Lav USB-C Mobile Kit includes the mic as well as an additional Manfrotto PIXI Mini Tripod and Sennheiser Smartphone Clamp.

The lavalier microphone is intended to help emerging users upgrade their audio beyond use of onboard mics in cellphones and other capture devices, allowing content creators the ability to mic a sound source (such as themselves) closer and thus help isolate that source.

The mic ships with a 2-meter/78-inch cable for plugging into a device; a standard USB-C to USB-A adapter will make a XS Lav ready for legacy products, too. For video conferencing, users may want to choose a XS Lav USB-C, as the 3.5 mm jack on XS Lav Mobile will disable a device’s audio output.

Frequency response is listed at 50 Hz–18 kHz.

All XS Lav mics include a microphone clip, removable foam windshield and a draw-string storage pouch as a standard.

The XS Lav (with TRRS plug) is priced at $49.95, while the XS Lav USB-C runs $59.95 and the XS Lav USB-C Mobile Kit is $99.95.
