Search & Rescue

Before making a purchase, a member of the Santa Clara County Sheriff’s Search & Rescue Team conducted a test of the KLOVER MiK 26.  

“The parabolic microphone aided comprehension both meaningfully and statistically at all distances. Between 322 and 1190 m, comprehension with the microphone was 86% vs 52% for unaided listening. Between 1529 and 2510 m, comprehension with the microphone was 57% vs only 12% for unaided listening . These results show the parabolic microphone to be superior in both detecting and comprehending hidden subjects who are calling.” (See the full story here.)

Parabolic microphones are also invaluable for locating victims in rubble or collapsed buildings.

Nature Study / Ornithology

Our 9-inch parabolic microphones have been used by bird watchers around the world. They have also been used to record land animals at zoos and in the wild (even Big Foot!). Our products have been used by National Geographic contributors and nature bloggers.

Sports

The KLOVER MiK line of parabolic has become the industry standard for capturing on-field sounds around the world. They have been used at the Super Bowl, the World Series, the CFP Championship, March Madness, the World Cup, and the Olympics.

While being the “standard” for football, the KM-26 is ideal for other sports where long-range audio pickup is required.  We are aware of it being used for soccer, rugby, kayak racing, rodeos, horse racing, team handball, and basketball. It is also ideal for racing of all types, such as sailboat racing or ski racing.

According to the audio engineer, Fred Aldous, “KLOVER MiK has become the industry standard.” Fred led Fox Sports’ transition to the KLOVER MiK and said, “We hear things that were all but impossible to get before.”

The KLOVER MiK 16 has been used for the MLB playoffs and the World Series.  The have also been mounted in several major league baseball parks, both with and without our Klover Box enclosures.

While not providing the same range as the KM-26, the KM-16 also works well for field sports such as football or rugby.

The KLOVER MiK 09 has been used for various sports including March Madness tournament and the NBA playoffs.  According to audio engineer Dave Grundtvig “the combination of the 9-inch parab and where it’s placed on the backboard perfectly mimics the three-point circle on the court.”

Audio engineer Steve Koubridis used the KLOVER MiK 09 for major league soccer and said “You may notice a shotgun on top of the lens. I had to do the A – B comparison. Well, no comparison at all. I’ll take it (the 9-inch parabolic).”

Military/Security/Law Enforcement

No other microphone can capture audio from such a great distance. Law enforcement and security agencies can monitor dangerous situations from a safe distance.

Broadcast Journalism

Interviews can be conducted with no notice because there is no need to place a mic on the subject. Depending on the level of ambient noise, the audio will be very similar to a lapel mic on the subject from up to 6 or 8 feet.

An unexpected benefit of using the KM-09 is that the audio signal drops off much less when your subject turns their head to the side, as compared to a lapel mic.

The directionality of the KM-09 greatly reduces the amount of ambient, or crowd noise that is captured. This allows your subject to stand out from the background noise. At the same time, the pickup is large enough that more than one subject can be captured with equal levels. You don’t need to worry about the subject speaking while the interviewer has pulled back the mic.

A group of 27 panel members was captured with four KLOVER MiK 09 units hung from the ceiling grid. (Read more here.)

The small parabolic also makes a great backup for wireless mics when mounted above the news desk.

Filmmaking / Documentaries

The KLOVER MiK has been used for prank and reality programs where capturing audio from a great distance is required.

Panels / Press Conferences

The range of the KLOVER MiK allows the presenter or the questioners to be heard, depending on the need. Learn more about how the Philadelphia Eagles use the KLOVER MiK 16.

Meeting / Class Streaming

Presenting classes online is becoming more common every year. Streaming video of the instructor is quite easy, and using a wireless mic provides great audio from the instructor. If desired, it is rather straight forward to add a second camera to capture video of the students. The challenge, however, is to capture audio of student questions and interaction.

Comments from more than 20 students were captured with four 9-inch parabolic microphone mounted in a 20-foot x 40-foot classroom. The audio was more than adequate. Learn more here. Another university placed a 9-inch parabolic (along with a Go Pro camera) in each classroom to stream the professor to students watching from home.

Houses of worship have used our 9-inch parabolic mics to stream the speaker or congregants to those watching online.

The small unit can also be mounted on a pan/tilt unit to follow the video camera, or mounted to a pan/tilt/zoom camera, to provide more focused audio to online meetings.

Mechanical Noise / Leak Detection

The focused pickup pattern of the KLOVER MiK allows noises from specific points on equipment to be monitored and analyzed.  Brakes are just one example of noises that are easily captured.

The focused pickup pattern of the KLOVER MiK allows the high frequency sounds of air leaks to be easily detected and located.

"They (the KLOVER MiK 16) simply did what other mics couldn't do. We pick up sounds and hear conversations happening at a whisper level at a great distance. This is something that other microphones and other technologies simply couldn't do based on the distance of these boats to the camera."

"Are you trying to bankrupt me? I'm just a poor Canadian A1. I pulled the parabolic out of the box yesterday and instantly had a ton of interest from some of the crew. My tech manager loved it. He wants one for his DSLR. He came in during the game and listened in real-time. I'm sure he'll be ordering one soon. I've attached some of the pics where I mounted it. Thought it was pretty ingenious. You may notice in some of the pictures a shotgun on top of the lens. Had to do the AB comparison. Well, no comparison at all. I'll take it."

"I've had a setup I've used for baseball for several years, but at the Little League World Series, we had to set up the shotgun mics back in a hallway that had the scorekeepers and other people walking around. I always ended up capturing "extra voices." When I switched to Klover (KLOVER MiK 16), all that went away."

"In my opinion, there is really no comparison between the Big Ears Parabolic Microphone and the KLOVER MiK. The Klover microphone has a much tighter pickup pattern. The Klover microphone has a completely different focus method and sounds much more like a condenser shotgun microphone."

"The small size of a parab was intriguing, but I wanted to hear it. I have used the parab on Wrestling and on Judo. Due to the small size of the dish, it didn't stand out in the shot. I heard this "tearing" noice and couldn't figure out what it was. Finally, I saw a person pulling masking tape off of a roll 30 feet away from the parab! It doesn't have a tin can sound, nor does it have a resonant hum. Overall you could say I was pleased with my purchase, but maybe a better term would be ecstatic."

"The amazing beauty of your product (KLOVER MiK-09) is that in about a minute one can use whatever lav they have as one of the world's farthest-reaching mics simply by inserting it into the parabolic dome! One can use their lav in a sit down interview one minutes and a couple of minutes later as a fantastic shotgun. And we can easily afford to use two mics at once, one for the person talking on the left and the other for the person talking on the right."

"Ever since I built those boxes around the 9-inch KLOVER MiK and put it on the backstop at baseball and softball, all of the SEC teams that have come to town ask what we are doing for on-field audio. I showed them pics of the boxes with parabs and I've sent them all your way! The other schools that have come to town say the audio we are getting from those parabs are as good or better than the SEC tournament in Hoover. Needless to say they are working out amazing for us."

"The Klover system worked great! Too good for one of the College’s with which we have a season contract. After I got things settled, we had a great broadcast and the Klover was very instrumental. So good that we received emails and text messages from viewers about the value the sideline sounds made to the broadcast. The Monday following the game, I get a call from the College’s athletic director asking for a meeting ASAP. When the coaches reviewed the broadcast, they got upset that you could hear their audibles and felt that their next opponent would have an advantage. So much so they demanded that we take broadcast down from our website and prohibited us from using the dish in their last two games."
