COS-11D Lavalier Microphones

The new generation COS-11D ultra-miniature lavalier was designed to meet today’s HD audio standards while providing greater immunity to RF interference.

The COS-11D is available in four colors (Black, White, Gray, and Beige) and with many connectivity options and accessories. It features a front mesh screen which is water resistant, better protecting the microphone from perspiration and cosmetics, and is ideal for outdoor shooting in foul weather.

The mic includes an exclusive vertical placement of the diaphragm for a much greater effective area within an extremely small casing. Sanken has combined extensive R&D with the world’s most advanced precision craftsmanship for the ultimate in sensitivity and natural sound.

COS-22 Dual Capsule Lavalier Microphones

The Sanken COS-22 is the world’s first dual capsule lavalier mic. In the tradition of the industry-wide popular Sanken COS-11Ds cavalier — copied but never matched in quality — the ultra-miniature COS-22 measures only 1.25” in length but boasts a truly unique concept: dual high-performance omni-mics in a tiny package.

The two-channel, dual omni-directional COS-22 is designed for a variety of applications, including high quality unobtrusive area miking, stereo recording of music and environmental ambience, redundant capsule live broadcast (e.g. news anchors), and boundary-style miking for film and television.

COS-11D HWM Head Worn Mics

The lightweight omnidirectional COS-11D HWM head worn mic is the industrywide standard for high quality stage microphones.

This ultra-miniature new generation microphone was designed for hi-resolution audio in feature film and television production and is now available for usage on stage, for broadcast, in houses of worship and for other live events.

This new model is ideal for major talent, stage singers, high-profile commentators, on-camera journalists, musical actors, and a wide variety of live performers. The new COS-11D HWM is especially valuable when there is rigorous head movement, while the close proximity of the mic to the vocal source provides consistently exceptional audio with very natural characteristics.
