Asked by: Hemeid
Yes, this HH-IC microphone will connect to the 3.5mm combo jack on your phone, and will be recognized like an external headset. The mic does have a headphone jack you can connect to, to listen to the other side of the call.

question

We are looking to get some microphones for our iPads to be used with 5th grade students. Two questions: 1) How good is it at cancelling out other sound that would be present in a classroom? 2) How durable is the microphone?
Asked by: Jeffrey L.
The microphone does not cancel sounds at all. Its cardioid polar pattern provides a high level of off-axis rejection, optimizing it for use recording speech as well as instruments and vocals. It is a reasonably durable microphone, but it will not sustain rough handling like dropping.

Does this microphone works with windows?

Does this microphone works with windows?
Asked by: Hemeid
As a buyer, and just now tester, of this microphone, I can say with certainty that it works just fine with my laptop combo jack (TRRS headphone/mic jack). It might be dependent upon the jack into which you plug it in, but it certainly works on this Windows 10 laptop. Was not the use-case I had in mind when I bought it, but certainly glad it has broader ability.
