Our Australian friends at RØDE have made a collaborative deal with the Earth’s gravitational field to simplify lavalier usage. Although not yet tested on other planets or moons, I suspect that it will also work very well in other places with a similar gravitational pull. The new RØDE accessory is called MicDrop and in essence is a US$19 brass sleeve weighing 32 gram (≈1.1 ounce) that attaches to the lavalier microphone’s cable near the plug, so after dropping the plug inside someone’s shirt or blouse, the plug will fall more easily and expediently to the user’s waist. MicDrop is compatible with all RØDE lavalier microphones and is likely to be compatible with most other ones on the market. Ahead is a video and a closeup photo from RØDE which illustrates its use.
