Weighing just three pounds, the KLOVER MiK 16 parabolic microphone excels in mobility. Its smaller size also makes it ideal for security applications where discreet audio capture is needed.

Typical Applications


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 an audience can be captured with a parabolic microphone. The unit can be hand held, mounted on a pan/tilt unit that follows the video camera, or mounted to a pan/tilt/zoom camera.


The directionality of the KLOVER MiK greatly reduces the amount of ambient, or crowd noise that is captured. This allows your subjects to stand out from the background noise.  

Press Conferences

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

Nature Study

Our parabolic microphones have been used by bird watchers around the world. They have also been used to record land animals worldwide.

This video demonstrates how the KLOVER MiK 16 captures sandhill cranes.

Law Enforcement / Security

The range and focus of the KLOVER MiK can provide audible audio to supplement surveillance video. This audio can provide valuable insight into suspicious activity. 


A number of customers use our small parabolic microphone for man-on-the-street type interviews.

The interview can be conducted spontaneously, without having to place a mic on the subject(s). If your subject turns their head to the side, the drop-off is much less than if they were wearing a lapel mic.

The directionality of the KLOVER MiK greatly reduces the amount of ambient, or crowd noise that is captured. This allows your subject to stand out from the background noise.


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.

Mechanical Noise 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.
