SANKEN COS-22 Dual Omni-Capsule Lavalier Microphone

The new COS-22 is the world’s first dual capsule lavalier microphone. In the tradition of the popular Sanken COS-11s lavalier, the ultra miniature COS-22 measures only 31.6mm(1.25”) in length but boasts a full frequency response up to 20,000 Hz. The two-channel, dual-omnidirectional COS-22 is designed for a variety of applications, including stereo applications for ambience of nature sound and music recording, redundant lavalier live broadcast usage, e.g. speech for news anchor.

As a special usage, it can be used for “noise cancel” microphone when you reverse phase of ch2 and sum ch1 & ch2 under noisy circumstances.
