Today I received the Rode Smartlav Lavalier Microphone for iPhone and Smartphones (opens in Amazon). Rode is a great microphone company. They make some really stellar microphones. I’ve seen James Schramko from SuperFast Business use this microphone and I decided to get the same.
I wanted a lapel microphone to use it with my iPhone. The Rode SmartLav Lapel mic offers “Broadcast quality audio direct from your iPhone or iPad or iPod Touch”, which is exactly what I want.
It comes in a protective leather-like pouch with everything you’d need – the instruction book and Quickstart guide and so forth.
It’s a simple little microphone with a decent-sized cord to go from the iPhone to myself. You might need to get a cord extender if you wanted to do a full-body shot.
Just make sure when you’re buying an extension for the microphone that you buy a cord that has four slots on the end or it’s not going to work as an extension cord.
So I can attach this to my shirt with the clip very easily. It provides better sound and helps to prevent interference from background noise. If I were to run my audio through a program like Orphonic I would probably get even better results.
And there you have the Rode SmartLav Lapel Microphone.
