Boom microphone

especially noisy environments. The advantage of
this mi­crophone is that its
signal remains unchanged
even if the speaker turns
their head.
Placing the boom
microphone
Hang the microphone behind the left ear
(Illustration 10).
Note:
Due to the directionality of the microphone, we
recommend that the boom
microphone be worn on the
left ear.
