Best Lapel Microphone for iPhone/Android AND DSLR – Under $50!

I’m always tinkering with new gadgets and toys that promise to improve video production quality and efficiency.. I’ve already done a few videos on the importance of using an external microphone when filming, ESPECIALLY with smartphones (linked below).

One of my favorites has been the ~$80 RODE SmartLAV+… BUT, I’ve just tried out the considerably cheaper BOYA BY-M1, and the results were very surprising!

Best Lapel Microphone for iPhone/Android AND DSLR – Under $50!

The sound quality is great on both microphones. Unlike the more expensive RODE, the BOYA works out-of-the-box with both smartphones (iPhone, Android) and DSLR’s (something the RODE doesn’t do), and has a very long cable.

After a few weeks with the BOYA, it’s quite possibly the best lapel microphone for iphone/android and DSLR Under $50.

If you’re in the market for new Lapel/Lavalier Microphone, make sure you check out the BOYA BY-M1.
