Bundled together by B&H for your convenience, this Rode smartLav+ Lavalier Condenser Microphone Kit lets you pair your smartLav+ with DSLR cameras as well as other devices that only accept a TRS connection.
The smartLav sports a TRRS connection, which makes it compatible with most smartphones that have 3.5mm input jacks. However, many recording systems are not outfitted with TRRS jacks—instead, their 3.5mm input is a TRS jack.
Luckily this kit solves these issues by providing you with a Rode SC3 3.5mm TRRS to TRS Adapter.
If you're looking for a compact, easy-to-use lapel mic that plugs right into a phone's TRRS jack, the Rode SmartLav+ is the microphone for you. This mic offers a broadcast-quality sound in a tiny form factor, and can record to many phones and devices that offer 3.5mm TRRS connectivity.
No controls are on hand, which streamlines the process: simply clamp the mic to your subject (or yourself), plug the mic into the phone, and start recording. The mic will work with any app that records audio, including the built-in iOS Voice Memo App—but when you pair it with the iOS Rode Reporter APP, you'll have access to a wide array of mixing, editing, and exporting tools. Perfect for electronic field production, run-and-gun news reporting, or simple mobile vlogs, the mic comes with a windshield, a durable clip, and a Kevlar-reinforced cable.
The Rode SC3 adapter cable is designed to connect a smartphone-compatible microphone that's equipped with a 3.5mm TRRS output connector to the 3.5mm TRS input of a camera or audio recorder.
The SC3 features color-coded connectors that are gold-plated to preserve audio quality. It can be used with the Rode smartLav+ and VideoMic Me, as well as mics from other manufacturers.
The cable is terminated with a 3.5mm TRRS female connector at one end and a 3.5mm TRS right-angled male connector at the other.
