Sennheiser 506791 Overview

  • 1Description

The ClipMic digital from Sennheiser is a professional solution for mobile recording that can be utilized to capture audio for several applications using iOS devices such as iPhone 7, iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus, iPad Air 2, iPad Air, iPad mini, and much more. The lavalier microphone enhances the sound quality by direct source pick-up. Unwanted background noise is reliably screened out.

The ClipMic digital ME 2 omnidirectional condenser microphone is connected via Lightning connector to modern iOS devices - allowing the jack socket to remain free for monitoring headphones as needed. An external converter from Apogee does the analog to digital signal conversion using the 24-bit/96 kHz sampling rate when connected to an iPhone, iPad or iPod touch. This allows for a signal quality that can be better than any CD available.

The corresponding apps (MetaRecorder and Maestro) for recording and control are included in the package. In addition, the apps deliver metadata for the further processing of this information, thus making the recording a simple matter. Essential features of MetaRecorder can also be controlled from the Apple Watch - start and stop recording, add a take to favorites, add markers or set your microphone input level. There are, of course, several other apps that can also directly access the microphone.

Finally, a mic clip, a metal windscreen, and a carrying pouch are also included.

ClipMic digital is suitable for anyone who wants a simple setup to record podcasts, presentations, interviews or meetings directly to their iPhone
You can rely on iPhones as flexible tools for film production. When paired with DSLR video cameras, MKE 2 digital and an iOS device make capturing professional quality productions simple and efficient

    Sennheiser 506791 Reviews

    Clip-Mic Digital is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 15.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great sound - live the ios interface BUT... ...beware to CHARGE your phone before + get a kind of box/cover(or gaffa) to make sure the plug dosnt jump off during the talk! Besides this its really great and you can sync by just clapping before recording - even in imovie - its really simple and easy! (And I work with 4K video- no problemo with speed / sync anything :-) And drag the sound from the iphone via itunes and cable OR via dropbox :-) For this price its a MUCH better solution than any wireless mess out there for 4-6 times the price! Can ALSO be used DIRECTLY on the iphone for videorecording!

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Lots of digital interference - I really want it to work I thought this would be the most perfect thing ever. To have a good quality lav in your pocket anytime, a back up and even as a third mic when you need to record more than 2 people. Right from day one, about 25% of the recordings have terrible digital interference. I had always switched the phone to airplane mode just to prevent people from calling or notifications ringing. I contacted Sennheiser and I just ended up sending it to them today at my own cost. I know I could return it but I really want this product to work for me and hope they can actually find the problem. The concept and the sound quality when there's no interference is excellent. I wish I'd be able to upload an audio clip here for people to listen to.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pairs great with my G3 I bought this for a series of short films that I'll be shooting soon. I went with the Clip-Mic because I needed a relatively inexpensive mic solution that would cut with my Sennheiser G3 system. I've tested it out, and it does just that. A blind listener couldn't tell the difference between the two. So, as of right now, I'm very happy with it. I'm just excited that there's a comparable, inexpensive alternative to the G3s. No complaints.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic new mic This new mic is fantastic. It produced clear sound, is easy to set up and you can control the volume from your iPhone. The analog sound is converted to digital before it reaches your iPhone. You can also monitor the audio you are recording with a headphone that does not have it's own mic. The clip-mic cord is long enough for to place the subject at relaxed distance from the camera.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Shure APP saves the day! Now this thing works I bought this about six months ago, and the free Apogee app gave me nothing but trouble. I want to use this to record video, and it simply did not work.? I was looking to sell, and in the mean time bought the Shure MV88. Shure has two apps, one for audio and one for video, and they both work great with this Sennheiser clip-mic. Putting the Shure MV88 and Sennheiser Clip-mic head to head, the Sennheiser sounds much better. I ended up keeping both, as they have such different uses. This is an expensive combo, and may not be for everyone. But it works great. If just doing voice, the clip-mic and Shure apps (motiv audio and video) would be my go to.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great lav mic! Great lavalier mic, sounds fine for the price and the app is really good (Apogee), I use it to have good speaker audio when video recording with my GoPro. It never go out of sync in longer shots, this could happen with normal voice recording apps, the frame rate is different than video rates. Make sure you record with the Apogee App if you are recording audio for external video. I also use it for Facebook live and voice audio is great.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simply wonderful We use this with iTouch in Officiant's pocket for over 30 wedding videos per year. It is impeccable audio! I cannot get over the quality of the audio it produces. Absolutely broadcast level. And I can control the level from my iWatch from Apple. Just love this. I am not a gear tech freak but this one really ranks high on my list of great products.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outstanding microphone I was using an Apogee One with Audio Technical XLR lav mic for audio input for iPhone 6 plus video production using Filmic app. This mic rivals the sound quality of that setup. Sennheiser and Apogee hit a home run with this mic! Clarity is superb with very minimal background noise.
