Voice Technologies Waterproof Pro Lavaliers – VT500 & 403WA Microphones


In today’s episode, we have a look at and listen to the Voice Technologies VT500WA and VT403WA. These professional level microphones have a major advantage over most others – they are waterproof with IPX 7 certification meaning they can withstand being under water at up to 1 meter for 30 minutes. So if you’re filming around water, these may be a good option for you. The non-waterproof version of the VT-500 has been a staple in my kit for the last 3 years and is holding up great!
