Their small size, flat frequency response and high sensitivity makes them great for any situation where a discreet microphone solution is required. Lapel mics can make great interviews mics and broadcast microphones. They're also often used in live theatre applications as wireless microphones. Lapel mics aren't just used for voice however, because they come included with a handy clip-on peg, they can be attached to props or instruments and used in location recording or live instrument mic'ing.
