To set up a Wired Lav microphone, you will need:

  • a Wired Lavalier microphone kit
  • a AA battery that should be included with your microphone, 
  • an XLR cable.

Remove the lavalier mic from the case, and unscrew the metal body to open it up.  

Place the AA battery inside the mic, and screw it back together.

Plug the XLR cable into the microphone.

Place the mic clip on the microphone if it is not already on the mic.

Clip the mic to your subject's chest at approximately the center of their sternum. 

If the microphone is not on your subject's body (ie: in their hand), it will not pickup low-frequency sound correctly.

Plug the opposite end of the XLR into the recording device.
