The HQ-M Mono lavalier records to one track (left side) as opposed to two tracks (both left and right). Some audio recorders can be set to mono mode and double it's recording time. The Mono Lav mic also requires
less gain from your audio recorder (or camera's) internal preamp allowing for a cleaner recording.
The HQ series of lavaliers feature an omni-directional polar pattern that provides a dynamic range of sound capture. All of these features are enclosed in a small package which is great for filmmakers as the lavalier is minimally visible on the talent. Included are a pair of foam windscreens that help reduce wind noise. The microphone clip provides a secure fastening point for mounting and is easily removed for alignment and/or passage through small openings.
Belt Clip for the Zoom H1 Handy Recorder features three different safety cable traps for line in and line out cables. With the lavalier cord securely looped under the belt clip there is a less likely chance for the lavalier microphone to be accidentally disconnected or pulled out. Your talent can now slide the Zoom H1, using the clip, onto their belt, pants, side pocket, or etc. easily be taken on or off.
The belt clip was also designed so the battery can be easily replaced on the Zoom H1 without having to remove the belt clip. Also with the clip installed, you still have complete access to all of your buttons and switches on the Zoom H1.
