Which brings up the point about headworn microphones. We're using
Countryman and DPA headworn mics for the clergy at our church and
they perform very well. The Countryman is easy to attach but bounces
around more. The DPA is more invasive, but holds its position better.
The DPA picks up more ambience in my application, but sounds better.
Has anyone tried these for oral histories? I suspect many subjects
would object to them more than to the clip-on mics. The only clip-on
mic I have is a Sony ECM-50P, but that is not the best compared to
what is now available.
