Tips for Selecting the Right Fitness Headset Microphone
In workout sessions such as Aerobics, Zumba, Group Training, or Yoga etc, the Fitness Trainer keeps guiding & motivating the class through their fitness headset microphone. Through constant speech & demonstration, the trainer keeps their Clients at the edge of their heartbeats. The clarity & loudness of voice is of paramount importance to success as a Fitness Trainer. With the proper headset mic, the trainer can communicate with the class members in the best and clearest way.
Once a fitness class commences, it is impossible to stop because of a technical issue. That’s why choosing a reliable fitness headset microphone comes first for any fitness Trainer. You cannot just go with any fitness microphone because exercises such as aerobics are strenuous, and the aerobics microphone headset used here will go through a lot of sweat & movement.
The microphone capsule must be of very high quality to produce clear sound. Apart from that, here are a few other things to check while selecting the right fitness microphone headset.
Any workout session essentially involves bouncing, jumping & rapid movement in a group. So make sure your group exercise microphone remains steady on your heads and does not change positions with movement.
A session could go on for hours at a stretch. So the mic has to be very comfortable to wear and does not cause pain or irritation over time. While buying, you can simulate wearing the mic and have a feel whether or not it feels natural on your face.
With high levels of activity and prolonged exposure to sweat & moisture, corrosion sets inside the mic. So choose a moisture resistant fitness headset in such cases. The frame, capsule, and connectors are specifically designed to withstand sweat in a sweat proof headset. The warranty card specifically mentions if is a sweat proof headset or not, so make sure to check it before purchasing.
Easy to Use
As a fitness instructor, you must focus on what you do best. The microphone you use has to be easy to assemble & disassemble, so it does not hinder your time or abilities while you are performing.
Wired or Wireless
Sweat proof wireless microphones are easier to use when it comes to fitness training; however, some trainers prefer the wired, lavalier microphones. Go with the one that best suits your needs.
There are branded Microphones such as Supreme Audio, Samson, Shure, Audio-Technica or Aeromic which are very popular as fitness microphones.
