Microphones for iPhone & Android (NO Headphone Jack!)
iPhone and Android Smartphones are awesome tools for creating video content. They’re incredibly convenient, 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…
We’ve covered the different microphone options for Smartphones in the past – but ALL of these have relied on a 3.5mm port, or headphone jack, to connect… With Apple canning the headphone port back when they released the iPhone 7, and newer Android phones heading the same way (thanks, Pixel… ????) – it’s time for an update with some NEW options!
In this video, we take a look at the options when it comes to microphones for iPhone & Android with NO headphone jack, along with some of the best iPhone microphones and Android mic’s – no matter what device you’re using.
