Avlex Corp., a producer of professional audio products, introduces four low-profile, single-earset microphones that combine an omnidirectional condenser element with an interchangeable earhook designed to accommodate different face shapes.

Avlex’s latest earset microphones are the HSP-39, HSP-29, HS-38 and HS-28 deliver exceptional audio quality that makes them ideal for tasks such as live performance and audience audiovisual broadcasts, the company says. All models use a moisture resistant, omni-directional, back electret condenser capsule with a frequency response of 20 hertz to 20 kilohertz.

The HSP-39 and the HSP-29, the company’s flagship models, ship with a premium 3mm diameter element while the remaining two models utilize a cost effective standard 3.5 millimeters design.

When it comes to fit, earset microphones have presented challenges for years, because uses’ faces vary considerably, the inability to achieve a comfortable, secure fit not only impacts the audio quality sought, it can dramatically affect the ability of the user wearing the microphone to remain focused on a task, Avlex says. Therefore, all of the new Avlex earset models provide three sizes of interchangeable earhooks to ensure firm placement on either ear, the company says.

In addition to pristine audio quality and interchangeable earhooks, equal attention has been paid to the design of the microphone’s boom, Avlex says. All four models use a malleable stainless steel boom that is extremely light and offers maximum flexibility in terms of adjusting the boom for proper positioning of the capsule, the firm says. On the HSP-39 and HS-38 models, the boom’s length is also adjustable—thus helping to facilitate the best fit and audio quality possible.
