Hands-On Review: the RØDE Smartlav Lavalier Condenser Mic for Smartphones

Share

Hot on the heels of the iXY microphone, RØDE now introduces the smartLav lavalier microphone—for smartphones. Not only is it compatible with Apple iOS products, the smartLav also works with many Android devices as well. In this video, Rob Rives introduces us to this simple-to-use, inexpensive and discreet mic, and puts it to work recording audio to an iPhone 4S.

Ummm...yeah, we get that you plug it into the iPhone, you clip it on, blah, blah. Where's the review?

The whole video is a real-world demo - he's using the Rode Smartlav mic, the Rode app, and the iPhone to record his audio for the video.

Thanks for watching.

can this app block a call from coming in on your smartphone with out interrupting?

Hi -

The microphone or the software cannot be enabled to block incoming  calls.

Apparently you can stop calls emails etc by putting your phone in flight mode..

The big question is, can I plug this thing into say, my Sony PCM M-10 recorder? I don't see why not...

Hi -

The connection and wiring are TRRS and designed for an iOS device.  It is not the typical stereo connection that your recorder uses.
