How to mount Uši (Pro)

There are endless ways of mounting Uši microphones, however we would like to list a few to get you started!

The most basic way to mount them is to use lavalier microphone clips like these:

Currently, all Uši are shipped with these. If you belong to the people who didn't get them (older orders), they are easily accessible on eBay or other online stores. Look for “Sennheiser lavalier clip”. Get the type with the circular holder, like on the picture.

Here is a short video on how to mount them on your Uši.

With these clips, Uši can be attached to your clothing, hat, recorder bag – anything is possible!

Other ways of attaching Uši can be rubber bands (Uši mounted to your fingers, for example), piece of solid-core wire, duct tape, blue-tack

Microphone arrangements

One of the popular microphone techniques is called binaural recording – simulating an experience of listening. In that case, microphones are positioned in place of ones ears and allow for realistic recordings. The proper binaural technique involves artificial dummy head, but we had some great results with simple mounting of the mics on glasses in the position of ears.

Other popular method (apparently invented by Chris Watson) is coat hanger mount, where small mics are attached to a regular metallic coat hanger, which serves as a microphone stand.

Another interesting and creative method is mounting the mics on your fingers using rubber bands, for great expressive positioning of the microphones in space.

We have also done many recordings with simple attaching of the microphones on a recorder bag, for extra stealthy setup.
