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.
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
The RØDE SC6 Dual TRRS Input and Headphone Output for Smartphones is an input/output breakout box for smartphones and tablets. It has two TRRS inputs and one stereo headphone output. It connects to any TRRS device, such as your smartphone, and allows you to use one or two smartLav microphones while providing a headphone jack for monitoring and playback. Use it to monitor audio from the smartLav and input two smartLavs into the mono channel in interview or dual-dialog applications.
Polsen HPC-A30-MK2 Closed-Back Studio Monitor Headphones
The HPC-A30-MK2 Closed-Back Studio Monitor Headphones from Polsen offer a solution for experiencing rich and natural sound when listening to music through a mobile device or monitoring a podcast on your computer. These headphones can also be used for DJ work, thanks to the swiveling earcups that let you monitor audio while keeping one ear free.
The HPC-A30-MK2's over-ear design isolates the sound and prevents leakage for optimum listening conditions in loud environments, such as a club or on the go. The 10' cable also gives you the freedom to move around while working and terminates in a 1/8" TRS stereo plug, which is compatible with most mobile devices and computers. In addition, a stereo 1/4" adapter is included to plug into a stereo or mixing board.
