Five fine microphone review coming your way right now hi everyone Digital David here today in this video I'm gonna be unboxing and reviewing the five fine lavel ear mic lapel kit I did receive this product to review but any opinion expressed in this video is strictly my own if you're interested in this product but link to it will be in my video description below you can see how comes packaged to you right here in a very simple retail box now let's go ahead let's open it up and look at the package contents here all the package contents first up we have a customer service a contact card then we have your

User guide and manual right here complete with full setup instructions walking me through every possible scenario and device to connect the included microphones to walking you through some tech specs as well then we have a nice carrying bag for everything to keep it organizing for easy travel and storage then you can see we have a 1 to 2 microphone adapter right here no more spot passing and swapping the lapel mic to each other you can just plug two mics in right there then we have an adapter that they call a 4 to 3 adapter this is for your trrs and your

TRS devices so this end will plug into your DSLR cameras or it will plug into your computer if you have a dedicated microphone port we have some additional covers for you so two additional windscreens one for the pal mic and one for the headset mic and we have another clip for the lapel mic then you can see with a long extension cable right here we have our lapel mic right here and we have our headset mic as well now let's go over some of the scenarios of how to use and connect these microphones so for iOS devices if you have an older iPhone that has your headphone jack still just

Plug the microphone in you're all set and ready to go if you have a newer iOS device you have to use the dongle so you have to get a dongle if you don't already have one that plugs in your phone or iPads lightning port then you can plug in the microphone and you're all set and ready to go the same thing can be said for Android users as well if you have the headphone jack you can plug directly and that if you don't you'll have to get a dongle for your device USB type-c or maybe micro USB it will depend on your device

I have a Google pixel 3a that phone has a headphone jack I can plug this mic directly in with no issues then I can open up the camera app from my phone and I can choose to use the external mic if I want so I can use it without having to download anything else or by any other adapters if your Android device doesn't have that option from the camera settings once you have your mic plugged in then you should try the open camera app right here they walk you through how to install it on your phone how to access the settings video settings audio source and then choose external mic if

Present now for a PC there's two options as well so if you only have one headphone jack on your PC that is for headphones and microphone combo so it's a 1 port for both then you can plug directly into that port and use the microphone with no issues if you have a PC that has two separate input jacks one for like your headphones one for your microphone then you'll have to use the included adapter what they call the 4 to 3 pin cable so you can see it right there you have to use that adapter to be able to use the microphone so you can see that very helpful guys here's the

Camera option as well with your DSLR camera you can see that we have to use the adapter again to connect the lapel mic to the mic port so just know you'll have to use the adapter for your DSLR cameras then they show you the Y connector right here with this which supports two microphones the trrs female ends so you can see how they're using it ones using the headset mic ones using the lapel mic we can see that in more detail right here guys plugging it into the device then plugging both microphones in they also have the extension cord option as well –

79 inches in case you're wondering 2 meters a little bit more than 6 feet here's connection options as well with the cell phone if you want to use both so see how they're doing it you have the adapter if necessary then you have the splitter and then the two mics same can be said right here so we have the 4 to 3 adapter if necessary we your extension cord litter so color-coded everything's ready for you so again extension cord Y connector both mics then T the fork 2 3 pin adapter extension cord Y connector Y adapter right there you're all set to use both

Microphones then they have some more things on the back for you which devices they're compatible with iPhone XS only back to the iPhone se do you can see you may need use a lightning adapter to have a newer device XS x r x8 +7 anything that doesn't have the old headphone jack tablets as well iPad and tablets Samsung and other smartphones so wide variety and range of products this will work with any iPhone all the way back to the SE iPads Android tablets Samsung and other smartphones right there now let's go ahead let's try them out alright guys so I got everything set up right now you

Can see I got the headset mic plugged into the extension cable that's plugged into my computer that's recording this audio right now for us in real time this is raw unedited audio in anyway coming straight from the microphone you see right here right here guys that's where it's coming out of this microphone right there it's recorded through OBS right here and by default when I plugged it into my Windows 10 machine it was at 85 for the volume level so we can adjust that too in a second for you so we can turn it kind of all the way up and my window settings are also showing that

The microphone boost is set to 10 decibels right here haven't tweaked it on OBS or anything else that's just my Windows 10 audio settings for this microphone so we can kind of adjust it a little bit further out if we wanted obviously we could go a little bit lower it's gonna hit my chin though we could go up I mean this is really flexible it kind of stays where you want it to within a little bit of give or take from that so you can see it right there I kind of feel like Britney Spears a little bit wearing this mic so yeah guys that's the headset mic now let's go and

Let's turn it up to 100 from Windows so now we have it at 100 I can see we're already in the red so I'm going to talk a little quieter if I talk loud like this I can see we're getting awfully close to peaking if we haven't peaked already right there with audio sample but that's a hundred and Windows with the 10 decibel microphone boost I'll bring it back down to 85 you're just gonna have to tweak this for your settings if you're gonna be using the computer what you're gonna be doing guys you'll have to tweak it yourself to get it exactly match to your voice the

Room you're in and everything else that you intend to use this microphone for right there but there we go that's the headset mic using OBS with the extension cable and our window settings at 85 now let's go ahead let's unplug it and plug in the lapel mic now we have the lapel mic plugged in right now let's go ahead let's open up those windows settings – so let's see what we got right here so levels are still 85 for the lapel mic let's go ahead let's clip it on so this is the mic I use normally for my review videos when I'm not in the studio and I record the audio to my task cam recorder

So we have it plugged in guys that's it I'm talking with the lapel mic I'll move my head around we'll go up we'll talk for a minute talk to the left again we'll talk to the right then we'll talk right down into the lapel mic kind of go all around again with our head we'll turn over the shoulder other shoulder we'll keep talking and you'll get a good sample and feel for this lapel mic again you can adjust the settings however you want let's go ahead let's bump it up from 85 to 100 so here's 100 now with the Windows settings for this mic that's what we're getting with a hundred set in

Windows nothing else is being tweaked or anything like that the audio is raw coming to you guys so you can get a great feel for the quality of this microphone and all the equipment you're seeing here in this video today so we're looking right down at it right now we'll go to the left and talk again we'll go to the right and talk again we'll talk to the ceiling we'll talk down low we'll kind of move our head all around while we keep talking we'll turn this way we'll turn the other way as well so that's the lapel mic at 100 as well with Windows 10 let's bring it back down 85

So let's see if we get it there 84 all right got it to 85 again that was the ten decibel microphone boost as well with this guy right there now let's go and let's plug both microphones in so I got the lapel mic plugged in now we got the headset mic plugged in let's try to put it back on again so now we have both microphones so if you can see that we got both of them plugged in right now so we're doing the audio from both microphones right here we're at 85 the lapel mic we have the lapel mic and we have the headset on so we got both mics on again that's 85 from windows right

Here now let's go ahead we can bump it all the way up to 100 again we're talking with both microphones right now testing now – you guys can see in real-time what everything sounds like this nice splitter does work right though we can hear both tracks of audio from both microphones so everything works as advertised I think it's a nice kit it gives you so many different cables and connections for you now we're back down to 85 again it just gives you everything you would need with a lapel mic and the headset if you like these head set style microphones it's not my

Favorite but I know it serves a purpose for a lot of different people out there especially if you're an instructor or teacher in some capacity for you but I love the lapel mics they're great I use them all the time it's nice to pick up these extra cables and connectors that I don't have in my studio kit already so overall guys decent quality let me know what you think about it in that comment section below well that concludes our video thank you so much for watching don't forget the product link will be in our video description below please go ahead check it out and do your shopping
