Rode Miniature Omnidirectional Pin Mic


The RØDE PinMic™ is a discreet lavalier/lapel microphone with an innovative pin-through design that is not only easier to conceal than a traditional lapel microphone, but provides greater mounting versatility.

Comprised of a cabled backplate and a removable omni-directional capsule head, the PinMic™ is easily mounted onto any clothing or fabric by simply pushing the backplate pins through the back of the fabric and sliding the capsule into place on the front. The microphone backplate and cable are hidden behind the fabric, and the capsule head can be easily disguised, covered or decorated to further conceal the microphone.

The PinMic™ capsule is discrete at only 9mm deep and 11mm in diameter, and is supplied with both a black and an unpainted silver mesh head that can be further camouflaged by painting.

The microphone easily mounts through any fabric up to 1.5mm (0.006") thick without any damage to clothing. A longer pin version (PinMic-Long) is available for mounting on thicker fabrics (up to 3.5mm/0.14" thick).

The microphone capsule is connected via a 1.2m (4') shielded, detachable Kevlar® reinforced cable that has been rigorously strain tested to ensure reliable performance.

The included mini-furry for high wind protection ensures quality recordings in adverse environments, while the anti-trauma water resistant case provides rugged and secure protection for the microphone, a spare capsule head, the microphone cable and included accessories.

The PinMic™ is an ideal solution for film, television, video, theatre, house of worship and anywhere where a high quality microphone needs to be heard but not seen.

Knowing that versatility is paramount in any product, RØDE has developed the MiCon™ connector system which provides seamless integration between the PinMic™ and a wide range of wireless systems as well as consoles, cameras and portable recorders.

The RØDE PinMic™ lapel microphone is designed and made in Australia and is covered by RØDE Microphones' innovative 5 year 'no questions asked' warranty which provides 12 months of complete cover, and an optional replacement microphone during the extended warranty period.

FAQ's

How do I register for the RØDE extended warranty?


Registration for the extended warranty can be made by completing our online registration form.

Once registered you warranty will be extended to either 10 years, 5 years capped or lifetime, depending on your product.

What is the procedure for returning a faulty product?

Please view our FAQ to try and troubleshoot the issue. If you believe the microphone is at fault please contact our distributor in your country of residence for the correct procedure for returning your product. To find your nearest distributor please use our technical support finder here.

DO NOT send any product back to RØDE without first obtaining a unique RMA number from us.

Is my microphone covered by a service warranty?

RØDE microphones come with a 1 year manufacturers warranty, this can be upgraded to one of our free extended warranties by the registration of the microphone on our website. Please register your microphone using the WARRANTY tab above.

Our warranty covers faulty workmanship and faulty components. RØDE may either repair or replace the product at their sole discretion. The product must be returned to the service centre in the country that the product was purchased for service and repair.

Please note: the warranty does not cover normal wear and tear, nor the use of the product in heavily corrosive, polluted or extremely humid environments.

I want to buy a RØDE mic from overseas. Will the warranty be valid?

The warranty is only valid in the country of purchase so in the unlikely event that the mic were to fail it would need to be returned to the country of purchase for repair.

Alternatively, the mic can be sent to a local distributor but they may (at their discression) charge an admin fee for repairing a product that was not bought locally. As we offer a 10 year warranty this is always worth considering when adding up the initial cost of the mic.

 

Can I still get support for my legacy/discontinued product?

Spare parts are usually available so please contact your local service agent for assistance with these repairs.
