iPhone and Android Smartphones are awesome tools for creating video content. They’re incredibly convenient, plus the camera quality in the latest phones is great – and it’s only getting better! The biggest issue, however, is that most people tend to rely too much on the internal microphones (or a set of headphones) and the resulting audio can massively degrade the quality of any videos…
Fortunately, there are a number of options to easily (and cheaply!) get great audio right from your iPhone or Android device. I’ve spoken about Lavalier Microphones and the benefits of using them a lot in past videos, but there are a lot of options out there and it can be difficult to know where to start…
In this video we look at the top Lav Mics for Smartphones: the iRig Mic Lav, RODE SmartLav+ and BOYA BY-M1. We’ll take you through a quick comparison and my thoughts on each, as well as my recommendation for the BEST iPhone Microphone (and Android!)
NOTE: If you’re using a Lavalier Microphone, it’s important to mount it correctly to get the best results… Don’t worry, it’s incredibly easy to do! You just need 30 seconds and some Duct tape – Check out this video for the full run-through.
