The VT500X eXtreme is the waterproof IPX-8 certificated version of the VT500.
 

Description

For the most demanding situations.

In a lot of theatre performances, musicals or broadcast productions, water comes in play. This is not only a challenge for the performers but also for the microphones.

Based on the worldwide success of the existing IPX7 certificated waterproof versions VT500WATER and VT500WA Water Adventure Voice Technologies developed the VT500X eXtreme. With some special production steps it is possible to seal the microphones to the point when they can even endure submersion without taking damage.

The VT500X eXtreme provides even more protection against water and is IPX-8 certified (1m under water for 24 hours). Beside of the maximum capsule protection it has a reinforced cable against sweat, cuts and tearing. This microphone is the ideal solution for the toughest outdoor shoots and stage applications. The waterproof designs proof advantageous even when no larger amounts of water are included in the production, as they also protect the electronics from sweat!

   Film trip with VT500X

Matt Maddaloni:
"I just finished a scouting and filming trip into North America's deepest cave Bisaro Anima. The 3 day underground trip consisted of 14km of crawling and squeezing through mud filled passages and 1.5 km of rappels and ascending. I had your VTX-500 Extreme mounted to the helmet of our hero Katie Graham. She dove underwater in the sump to 15 feet at the bottom of the cave and wore the microphone throughout the entire cave. It never failed! The audio is amazing and I wanted to thank you. This mission was to take dive tanks of air and more equipment to the bottom to prepare for a 2 hour dive on the next trip. We are planning to go back on November 23rd for 7 more days underground and push the cave deeper. Our film is for a large network here in North America and this story will be the main component."
