The VT500WATER is a waterproof version (IPX-7 certificated) of the VT500 lavalier microphone.


Due to a special molding injection treatment the microphone can even be temporarily situated completely under water, without taking any damage. This enables a special flexible use in broadcast and live area or even at sports events. In addition the microphone is rugged and shockproof and RF protected. Voice Technologies counts also on an especially flexible cable, which has excellent isolation from handling noise.

Ken Travis/Sound Designer of Disney's Aladdin and Newsles:
      "I was the sound designer Karen Katz was mixing for when we used your VT500WATER Microphones. Our entire sound team was impressed by the durability and sound quality of the microphone. The actor who wore the microphone sounded the same on your product as he did on his main microphone which cost about $200 more. The only reason he didn't wear the VT500 for the entire show was the size of the element made it difficult to hide two of them in his hair. However, I do not know another microhone that would have held up to a down pour of water while an actor sang. Very impressive. We are considering trying them on future productions of Disney's Aladdin for actors who sweat out other microphones."

    "That mic got us (Ken Travis designing, me mixing) through a new musical where the Act1 finale would have come to a dead halt if the mic went out. Thank you so much for a great product."
