The Anchor HBM-MINI is a lightweight headband microphone designed for hands free operation. The microphone features a cardioid polar pattern which is effective in minimizing noise at the off-axis sections of the microphone. The cardioid pattern provides high gain before feedback making it suitable for use near monitor speakers. The microphone is fixed to a flexible boom for easy positioning and optimum pickup. The cable is terminated with a 1/8" (3.5mm) mini plug, compatible with Anchor wireless body pack transmitters.
