Can someone recommend a good Lav mic?

I am in need of two lav mics for a upcoming interview, thanks!

Best Answer:

If just the mic, then I would go with a CountryMan B6 - You can find more info on their website

I use Sanken Cos-11D lavalier microphones and they are amazing. http://www.amazon.com/Sanken-COS-11D-Black-Lavalier-Mic/dp/B0072ND0W8/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1388369598&sr=8-1&keywords=lavalier+mic+cos

Brandon, what are your thoughts in comparing to others, or is that the main one you have used?

I've used several lavalier microphones and the Sanken Cos-11D is my favorite by far. It doesn't record as much background noise or fuzz as the other microphones do and the sound quality is more crisp. You can hear the difference in sound quality in the videos below. You can go with a less expensive microphone, but if you want the best sound quality, I would go with the Cos-11D.
