Hi.

Here's a video of the Osmo Pocket being used with the Rode Lavalier GO.

Rode have sent me some other stuff that I'll be testing with the Pocket. When the mic adaptor is released for the Osmo Action I'll be doing a load of videos with that and all the Rode mics I have, plus a bunch of other mics including studio condensers and shotguns.

This video is also in 4K/UHD for anyone interested in such things.

Cheers,
Dave,

Hi Tony.

You are very welcome.

Yes, I agree, the audio is very clean. I do think that this lavalier microphone pairs up very well with the Pocket.

Cheers,
Dave.

Very good, and unusual for any company to not put conditions of use to supplying equipment.
Nice to see a Rhode mic that works OK with the Osmo Pocket but you didn't mention whether it is powered by the Pocket or battery in the review.
Also congratulations on finding a good weather day to film on

Hi Ray.

It’s a standard lav, not self powered, the Pocket is providing the power. Having seen a number of Pocket owners mention incompatibility of some mics with the Pocket, presumably due to to impedance, I thought it would be useful for others to know that this one works.

As for the weather, it’s a good job I didn’t do it today

Cheers,
Dave.

Hi Sam.

I agree. I’ve used other lavs that have been a let down but I do think this one is OK.

As this one is designed to work with the Rode Wireless GO, I suspect that its sensitivity/output has been tailored, attenuated slightly, to match the input of the Wireless GO which is prone to be overdriven and clipped. For a voice like mine, a bit on the loud side Attenuation is a help.

Although, like all mics that are designed primarily for dialogue, some are more suited to certain voices compared to others. This is why I’d always suggest, even with a mic that’s technically good, that it’s always best testing them first wherever possible to see if they’re a good match. Unfortunately, this is why listening to examples like this one should only be taken as a guide of certain technical abilities and not necessarily as proof of absolute tonal quality.

On the points that I’ve just mentioned about matching mics to sound sources etc. and the differences, or not, between mics, you may find this video interesting.

Cheers,
Dave.

Hi Tony.

You are very welcome.

You're most welcome. Lavalier will be a good option for the Osmo Pocket.
