Do you wish to use your iOS or Android smartphone for recording interviews, but can't due to its limited mic inputs? Then check out the Polsen 2-Person Smartphone Interview Kit from B&H. It consists of 2 Polsen MO-PL1 omnidirectional lavalier mics, a Rode SC6 dual TRRS input and headphone output adapter, and a pair of Polsen HPC-A30 closed-back studio monitor headphones.
The Polsen MO-PL1 lavalier mics are designed to provide optimal sensitivity and impedance for your iOS device, and are compatible with most Android devices as well. The omnidirectional polar pattern and clear sound quality are a significant improvement over the built-in mic in your smart device. Using the Rode SC6, you can connect both mics to your device simultaneously, while using its headphone output to monitor the interview with the included Polsen HPC-A30 headphones.
2 x Polsen MO-PL1 Lavalier Microphone for Mobile Devices
The Polsen MO-PL1 is an omnidirectional lavalier microphone that delivers high-quality audio for mobile devices. The microphone's sensitivity has been optimized for iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch devices, thus providing proper signal levels, resulting in a significant improvement in the audio quality of your recordings. The MO-PL1 is also impedance matched to ensure compatibility with your mobile device. The mic enables the voice to be "up front" even when recording video from a distance. The included tie clip discreetly hides the microphone and provides hands-free simplicity during presentations or interviews.
Easy to use with no batteries or power supply needed, the MO-PL1 works with many audio and video recording apps to capture clear and natural sound for lectures, dictations, and online videos. The omnidirectional polar pattern provides excellent off-axis response even if the subject's head turns while speaking. The 12-foot cable provides the flexibility of getting longer-distance camera shots with up-close audio. The MO-PL1 is an excellent tool for recording professional-quality sound on mobile devices.

Rode SC6 Dual TRRS Input and Headphone Output for Smartphones

Polsen HPC-A30 Closed-Back Studio Monitor Headphones
The HPC-A30 Closed-Back Studio Monitor Headphones from Polsen are designed for monitoring audio in studio, field, mobile, and DJ applications. They feature 50mm drivers that provide a frequency response of 18Hz to 22kHz for accurate reproduction of your audio.
The ear cups on the HPC-A30 have an around-ear (circumaural), closed-back design, allowing for the increased isolation often desired while tracking or monitoring playback. Additionally, the ear cups can be pivoted for single-ear monitoring. The headphones have a collapsible folding mechanism for compact storage and transport. A padded and adjustable headband provides comfort during extended use. The 32 ohm impedance allows for ample volume when used with mobile devices. The headphones have a single-sided, 9.8-foot cable that terminates in a 3.5mm stereo connector. A 1/4" adapter is included for additional compatibility.
