I understand this mic was made primarily for cameras and smartphones/mobile, but would this work perfectly well on computers as well for video conferencing?
Asked by: J
In theory, yes, teh Sennheiser MKE 200 Ultracompact Camera-Mount Directional Microphone could be used with a computer for video conferencing. If the computer does not have a dedicated 3.5mm microphone input connection, an interface such as the Audio-Technica Consumer ATR2x-USB 3.5mm to USB 2.0 Type-C Audio Adapter (BH #AUATR2XUSB) could be used: https://bhpho.to/3uzc5Ra

What cable do I use to connect with an iPhone 10?

What cable do I use to connect with an iPhone 10?
Asked by: Kimberly
For connection to your iPhone, use the 3.5mm TRS to 3.5mm TRRS cable that is included with the microphone. The TRS end connects to the mic's output and then attach an Apple Lightning to 3.5mm Headphone Jack Adapter (B&H # APLAADAP) onto the TRRS end of the cable which converts the plug to Lightning for connection to your iPhone.

Is it possible to monitor audio with headphones while recording with this mic? What would the setup be?
Asked by: John
If using this mic with a camera, you would use the headphone output of the camera to monitor audio. When used with a smartphone, there is no headphone option, unless you use the TRS cable meant for a camera and attach an adapter to the phone, such as the Sabrent 3.5mm Combo Headset to Microphone and Headphone Y-Splitter Cable, BH #SACBAUHM. this will allow for the signal to e split so you can connect a TRS mic and have an output for headphone monitoring.
