Sharkoon expands their range of input devices and introduces, with the SM1, a clip-on microphone made from metal. If offers a wide range of applications plus the SM1 supplements every type of headphones with a microphone function and, accordingly, allows it to be used as a headset.

The SM1 from Sharkoon is a metal lavalier microphone, which is particularly suitable as a complement for headphones. Thanks to its metal clip, the microphone can attached, for example, to the cable of the preferred headphones or directly to clothing. It is also suitable for applications such as lectures, presentations, video production, podcasts and streaming. Thanks to its lightweight of only 31 grams, including cable, and with its compacted dimensions, the black SM1 ensures discreet use. The 250 cm long cable guarantees maximum freedom of movement.





The directional characteristic of the microphone is unidirectional and especially designed for voice recordings. Frontal incoming sound is preferred for recording, while lateral incoming sound is accounted for extensive spatial sound. However, sound coming from behind is muted and not recorded. The SM1 is additionally equipped with a foam pop filter to assist against wind and movement noise, which is easily removable, if necessary. Specifications include an impedance of 0.68 kΩ ± 30% at a frequency range of 50 Hz to 16,000 Hz; and a sensitivity specified at -68 DB ± 3 db. The SM1 connects via a 3.5 mm microphone jack (TRS) to all conventional PCs and notebooks with a corresponding microphone port.



The Sharkoon SM1 is now available for the suggested retail price of 8.99 euros in authorized retailers.
