Forehead Microphones

Post by flleeppyy »

Hiya, I'm looking for forehead microphones that go over the head/through the hair, since the show that my crew is putting together involves a lot of hair, and we're looking for a way to get the microphones as invisible as possible.

Does anyone have suggestions or recommendations?

I'm looking for mics compatible with mini XLR, or the traditional connectors you would see on Sennheiser receivers/

@flleeppyy, I have never heard of a forehead microphone. Are you referring to a headset microphone, with a small boom?

This unusual form factor wireless microphone system puts the transmitter pack at the back of the person, so it rests on the neck behind their head. No wires to the transmitter body pack because the mini transmitter is integrated into the mic mount.

Yes there are forehead mics. A few years ago, I provided the PA gear (X32 Rack, stageboxes, speakers, etc.) and training for a high school musical event. They also hired someone who took care of all of the wireless mics (25 of them) for the actors. They all used the forehead mics and bodypacks (Sennheiser) and they worked surprisingly well. Since @flleeppyy posted his request, I've been racking my brain to remember the guy's name. I also checked my contacts and business cards to no avail. Wish I could help.
