MIC-J (1 of 3)

I was looking at low price lav mic’s on amazon and came across this guy. The strangely named “JK MIC-J” is a $29 lav mic that’s been shipping under a few different names on ebay and Amazon over the last few years. I hadn’t really paid attention to it until just recently.

The JK MIC-J lav mic comes with a Sennheiser style thread on the 3.5 mm jack and sports a mic capsule that looks suspiciously similar to the $54 Aspen Mic I was testing earlier this week. Heck even the shirt clip looks similar.

The specs listed for both of these microphones are also extremely similar. I wonder if this is a case of same mic, different branding. Not sure what the story is behind the JK MIC-J lav mic and Aspen Mic, but I think i’m going to attempt some A/B testing between these two this week.

I wonder if the $25 price difference between the two mics is really just better branding and a tin case. Should be interesting to test the audio and listen to the results. These might be using the same mic capsule.
