Saramonic SmartMic+ Overview

Record broadcast-quality sound straight to your Android smartphone or tablet with the Saramonic SmartMic+ UC; a compact directional microphone that connects directly to your mobile device's USB Type-C port without the hassle of cabling. Ideal for vlogging, live streaming, and mobile video production, the SmartMic+ UC features a lightweight and durable metal housing, which can be oriented to match the direction of your front- or rear-facing camera. Thanks to its plug-and-play design, this mic requires no batteries or charging; just plug it in, open your favorite recording app, and then go!

The condenser capsule delivers a tailored-for-speech frequency response of 75 Hz to 20 kHz, and utilizes a cardioid polar pattern to provide focused sound pickup with reduced ambience. To attenuate wind noise and protect the mic from dust whether shooting indoors or outside, foam and furry windscreens are included. In addition to the USB Type-C male plug for connecting to your recording device, the SmartMic+ UC has a 3.5mm TRS headphone port, allowing you to monitor audio without having to disconnect the mic.

Provides broadcast-quality sound to Android smartphones and tablets by plugging into your mobile device's USB Type-C port when shooting video, recording audio, live streaming, vlogging, podcasting, and more
Directional cardioid pickup pattern clearly captures sounds in front of the mic while rejecting sounds to the sides and rear
Can be positioned facing forward when using the selfie camera, or facing outward for standard shooting
Metal housing is lightweight, compact, and ultra-portable while maintaining durability
Simple plug-and-play usage; never requires batteries or charging
3.5mm headphone jack for real-time monitoring while making recordings (app dependent) and listening to playback without removing the microphone
Included snug-fitting foam windscreen for indoor use and furry windscreen for outdoor use; each reduces wind noise, and protects the capsule from dust and dirt

Will this work with a Go Pro Hero 8 Black ?
Asked by: Bradley
No, the USB-C input on those GoPros is proprietary. The only way to get a microphone into those cams is to buy the GoPro 3.5mm microphone input adapter. Sorry.

Would this work on iPad Air as an external microphone for FaceTime calls?
Asked by: Donald
YES!. I just tested it with my iPad Pro which also has USB-C and it worked great. Keep in mind to hear the other caller you will need to plug-in a pair of 3.5mm headphones into the SmartMic+UC. The speakers on the iPad will not be in use when you use the SmartMic+UC. Also make sure that you plug in the microphone before you start FaceTime.

There is a DJI branded USB C to 3.5mm accessory specifically intended to support external mics on the Osmo Pocket, so a mic with a USB C connector should work fine, right?
