    Shure MVL reviews

    MOTIV MVL Omnidirectional Condenser Lavalier Microphone is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 17.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice back up, but not much use yet Not going to lie, I didn't realize this was a mic for Shure's smartphone app. I was buying this as a microphone for my tascam recorder. As some of you might already realize, it will not work for this. This mic only works with a smart phone and app. Upon realizing this I decided that this might not be a bad piece of equipment to have in my bag. It is now a back up for my other recorders and mic system. I haven't had a lot of chances to try it out, but from the little experience I have. The audio quality is decent and it is convenient that the actual recorder system is something that people usually have in their pocket anyway.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Best Bang For The Buck Reasonable price for many applications. Bought it to use with my iPhone for simulated wireless setup (albeit you have an extra audio file to synch up in editing). It's either hundreds of dollars for a top pro lavalier wireless set up or $20 for a smartphone compatible mic that requires a battery with iffy sound quality or others that aren't directly compatible with smart phones without adapters. This one has a 50 cord and plugs directly in to my iPhone 5s. Works fine with Apple supplied voice memo app and even better with the iTalk app which allows file transfer from smartphone to computer via wifi. Capsule uses power from phone - no extra batteries to die at the wrong time.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great for the price! This microphone works great for quick and impromptu interviews, video blogs and recording lectures. The sound quality is great and the app is easy to use. What is great about it is you don't have to carry your external sound recorder and can just use your phone. Would be great if it were compatible with other recorders or if you could use it as a wireless system, but the price makes up for that. Long cord is great too. Good purchase for anyone making prosumer videos or podcasts on the go or as a backup to a professional lavalier and external recording system.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect and Professional Use this product for recording interviews, teachings, etc. Works great. Plug into my iPhone and using the Shure Motiv app lets me record quality full resolution files in 24bit /48 Khz. And If You are recording video you can just sync it with the audio file in production. Love it. Helps me to capture quality audio wherever I am or whatever the context.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Impressive I ran this mic as a backup to my wireless and it performed beautifully. Good quality sound, if a bit thinner than the wireless. I would use it as a standalone. I did have an issue with one interview where the sound was entirely noise. Not sure if it was the mic, a loose connection, or the software.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great mic I used the product to record audio for talking head interviews. I plugged the mic straight into my MacBook Pro and recorded with Adobe Audition, the audio is great. For the price, it really makes a great tool for a low budget.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Iphone Mic! When placed close to collar, voice has good resonance, picks up just enough back ground sound so does not sound hollow.
