No More Adapters!

The V.Lav is a broadcast-grade omni-directional lavalier microphone designed for use in video productions.The V.Lav is the world’s first lavalier to feature a microprocessor that adapts the TRRS plug to work with almost any 3.5mm microphone jack.

V.Lav is Easy to Use - 5 Meters Long

The V.Lav is a perfect fit for mobile use with a 3.5mm TRRS connector. With a 5 meter cable, you will have plenty of slack to even run the lav into a camera on a tripod. Simply clip it onto your clothes and plug it into your device’s microphone or headset jack and start recording. Getting professional audio has never been so easy.

Better Sound Than Ever

The V.Lav delivers clear, natural sound. By employing an omni-directional condenser capsule, the V.Lav Mobile picks up sound equally from all directions. In addition, its flat un-colored frequency response is optimized for hearing sounds the way they sounded in the real world.

Long Battery Life

The V.Lav uses two LR41 cell batteries. The battery and microprocessor chip are enclosed in a CNC aluminum housing. Battery power is only used when the V.Lav is determining how to adapt to the microphone input you’ve plugged it into. After the V.Lav has adapted to your device the microphone capsule then uses the voltage from your device and puts the LR41 batteries back to sleep.

All-In-One

The V.Lav delivers hands-free clean audio and comes with all the accessories you’ll ever need. The included windscreen minimizes wind noise and vocal plosives. The cord organizer allows for clean cable management and the rugged carry case is perfect for carrying and protecting the entire kit together.

V-Lav is compatible with:

DSLRs

Camcorders

Smartphones*

Handy Recorders

Laptop

Bodypack Transmitters

Tablets*

late model iOS devices require Apple’s Lightning to 3.5 mm Headphone Jack Adapter.

Coming from the Zoom F1, I wanted a system where I didn’t have to take out an SD card or plug a unit into a computer just to extract the audio. My audio needs are generally light, so I didn’t really need an external unit where my iPhone would simply suffice. I was interested in the Shure MVL, Rode, and Sennheiser options and all seemed fine. However, once I saw that Deity went the extra mile with a chip that can recognize different gear, I felt this was the best option should I be in a situation where I wasn’t using my own stuff at a later date.
Along with the mic, it comes with a carrying pouch, an extra foam windscreen, a small dead cat type windscreen, and for some odd reason, a cleaning pack (gloves and all!) Probably won’t ever need that, but perhaps can use it for something else.
Sonically, the lav pretty much sounds how you’d expect an omni directional patterned mic to sound. I felt my lower baritone type voice sounded balanced and full, but not muddy. I’d still have to EQ in post with a high pass filter. I’m not experienced with any high end lavs so I can’t compare, but I feel it was generally on par with the Zoom lav from the F1, just without the locking ring.
If I had any gripe, and this is for my preference, I would have liked a shorter cable. I know the longer cable is preferred in some situations, but the Shure, Rode, and Sennheiser options all had cables that were more akin for personal use than mixing up someone from a distance. I figured once you add distance, you might as well just go wireless or sync a separate unit like the F1 or DR-10L. The longer the cable, the more chance it can get crimped and damaged in my opinion.
Oh and good luck trying to get it back into the carrying pouch the way it arrived (that’s not gonna happen ever again).
So my conclusion is that for the price, and versatility, the Deity lav is a very good deal. It’s a better mic than the cheap $20 Audio Technica you see here and there (which I’ve owned and also wasn’t into the long cable.) Its probaly good for perhaps home vlogging studios where you don’t wanna sync in post as it goes in-camera.
If you’re like me and more or less using it primarily for audio journaling or you’re going to location shoot with movement, the cable might be cumbersome. For the price, it’s handy to have in the proverbial mic tool kit in the right circumstances.
NOTE: In my tests, this mic won’t recognize equipment if going through an adapter, say through an XLR adapter into an audio interface. It seems this has to go direct into whatever your plugging into, with the exception of the Apple headphone dongle which works fine. I haven’t yet tried using a TRRS to TRS adapter and then into an XLR adapter yet... but I’m thinking that it probably won’t work either. Still, if your equipment has a 1/8” in plug, it will probably be fine.

Was planning to use it along with the RODE Wireless Go, but everytime I connect it, I hear radio interferences. I tried other lapels and mics like the Aputure A.Lav and the Deity D3 Pro with the Wireless Go, and none of them are having the problems I'm having with V.Lav.

Very unfortunate. Would've rated this 5/5 due to the audio quality, but because of the lack of RF shielding in mine, it just became way less useful to me.

I bought this last year but never got around to using it. Opened and tried using it over the past few days, the pickup was extremely low and if I boosted the level, I got a lot of noise. I have the Aputure A-Lav and used it for comparison, works much better. I got this based on my experience with the Aputure A-Lav, as it is made by the same company that now operates under a different name. I was hopeful but disappointed in the end. I would have sent it back for a replacement had I tested it when I first got it. I took it for granted it would work now that they have made the move to provide better equipment.

I used it with the Zoom H6 and it worked a bit better with the batteries removed and depending on how you place the cord. Part of the issue seems to be at the plug. Playing around with the cord can either produce a lot of noise or decent sound but that wouldn't last long. The long cable was way more than I need. Let's hope they have some better products this year.

Update - The mic works and sounds great. It seems the issue is with the battery pack. It does not always turn green, I have to play with it to get it to turn on. It seems like it could be the cable or the battery not making contact. It works as long as the cable is kept in a stable position and the light can stay on. Will play with it to determine where the fault lies.

This is a versatile mic. Plug it straight into a tascam digital recorder on the 3/4 channel or use with a zoom h1n in your pocket for solid quality backup. Use the deity d-XLR adapter to plug into a juicedlink/beachtek preamp then into a DSLR and it’s very usable as primary audio. Can even use with a lightning adapter with an iPhone and it works. Very impressed with sound. Can pick up rustle from crinkly clothing but overall clear, crisp and resonant audio. I think they should have a shorter cable with an adapter and extension cord because it’s long and can be cumbersome to manage but I see why they do it and I’m really just being nit picky. The only thing I really would like to see changed is the size of the mic head. It’s quite big by lav standards, so not the most discreet lav. But again, not a huge issue. Overall, good bit of kit that you’ll be glad you have.

Good microphone, nice sound and really good quality.
I use the microphone with my Cannon DSLR and my IMac.

This lav works great with the Rode Wireless Go. Many have lav mic issue with the Rode using a lav, but it works great with this mic. The only issue I have, is the length of the cord... 5m is 16.4ft... That is a huge hunk of cord to contain, but it does come with a belt pouch that is sturdy and holds the muff/extra cord. If you don't have a belt to attach it to your body, then you need some pocket space, if you are using a wireless system! Sound quality is awesome. The muff works, bit is WHITE and if need more cover, buy another one. Great post editable sound and easy to use. Don't know how long the batteries will last, but we'll see...

 Pretty expensive for the sound quality. I found that a $20 cheaper mic sounded the same, maybe that's subjective. Also the case was too small to fit the massive long cable and the label mic. Upon review, there is def less noise compared to the cheaper mic but it's still too expensive for the performance imo. I am going to buy the D3 Pro and use a shotgun mic instead. I think lapel mics in general don't work well for me given my voice.

had some issues with the mic, hearing it playback sometimes is very muffled. my 20 dollar powerdewise mics perform much better and more reliable.

might send it back but its been a while and i haven't bothered.
