Make a lasting impact with the right sound equipment
Think about your favorite scene in a movie, how does it heighten your emotions? Are you sitting on the edge of your seat in suspense? Are the tears slowly seeping out of your eyes? Are you about to cover your face because you can’t bear to watch? Now think of that same scene without sound. No dialogue. No properly-themed music. No sound effects. Is the impact the same?
Sound is such an essential component to any successful video because it’s often the first thing people recognize when watching content. If the sound isn’t captured properly, or if it doesn’t come through clearly, it can lead to someone clicking away or turning off your video before they’ve had a chance to watch the whole piece. They could miss your message, all because the sound was too muddled.
People don’t watch what they can’t hear
The right audio equipment adds vivid and crisp detail to your video production project to really drive home the impact and emotion you’re hoping to convey. However, it can be challenging to maintain the vast array of sound equipment needed for every type of video you may be called upon to create. Supplementing your own production equipment by renting audio gear helps cut down on project costs while still allowing you to use the highest quality equipment.
Utilizing a company like Lens Head Media for sound equipment rentals gives you access to all the latest tools to capture and enhance sound, dialogue, and special effects for your video production project. Rent speciality equipment that can process sound more clearly than a standard camera can. Increase your impact through sound!

How to use the best audio recording equipment for film the right way
It’s important you know how to get the best results out of the outstanding film audio equipment for rent through Lens Head Media. Here are a few tips:
Microphone positioning is everything.
- Play to the strengths of the actual microphone you’re using for your shoot by placing it in the right position to capture the best sound. This is achieved by understanding how your mic should be used. Some mics work better in quiet environments, while others handle wide coverage better. There are even mics specifically used for musical performances. Make sure you’ve got the right one, in the right spot, for your production.
Don’t only rely on your camera to capture sound.
- Utilizing a separate audio recorder can help you keep control over sound levels, which leads to a higher-quality recording than what you may capture using your camera alone.
Doubling up on sound coverage is a good thing.
- Don’t assume that one type of microphone is going to give you the sound coverage your shoot requires. Sometimes production sets aren’t exactly what you expect, and capturing sound with multiple mics can ensure there are no gaps in coverage. For example, using a lavalier and a boom to record the audio during an interview setup instead of just one or the other.
There are a lot of factors that contribute to collect the perfect audio for your project. You might be uncertain exactly what sound equipment you need to rent, but Lens Head Media can help.
