Which countryman for sitdown interviews?

Hello,

I need a good wired lavalier microphone for a corporate interview that will be done sitting down in an office.

I am using a HMC-150 to film it so it needs the XLR connection.

Any suggestions?

Was hoping to pay 200 bucks.

Thanks,

Simon

I'm assuming you want the wired lav for the subject and you're working with another mic.

Here's the B3 for under $200:

I find the Countryman EMW (side address vs B3-B6 top address) to be useful for interviews.

Hello,

I ordered the Countryman B3 and will see how it goes.

I had tried out the Shure MX 185 and was very disappointed. I returned it after 2 days.

Thanks again for the info.
