If you're looking for a compact, easy-to-use lapel mic that plugs right into a phone's TRRS jack, the Shure MOTIV MVL 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 incredibly: 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 ShurePlus MOTIV iOS or Android 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 windscreen, a tie clip, and a drawstring carrying pouch.

Note:
Please note, this Shure MOTIV MVL is sold in the new packaging. That is the only difference between this item and the other MOTIV MVL on this site.
Great for the Field
The mic is easily hidden, but it offers an omnidirectional polar pattern that ensures you'll get an even sound at any angle of address. This makes it great for run-and-gun sound pickup.
Handy Includes
The included windscreen protects against plosives. The tie-clip makes mounting the mic a cinch. Put everything in the storage pouch when you're done.
Easy to Use
The mic offers no controls and operates in the analog domain. This makes operation a breeze: simply plug it in and play. There's no software to install to make it compatible with your phone—unless you want to achieve extra functionalities, such as the ones highlighted in the next feature.
Compatible App
With the ShurePlus MOTIV iOS or Android app, you'll have access to a wide array of mixing, editing, and exporting tools. Adjust mic gain, monitor mix, EQ, limiter, compressor, and more.

The Shure MOTIV MVL Omnidirectional Lavalier Microphone for Smartphones has a TRRS connector for use with smartphones. It would not be compatible with a wireless transmitter such as the DJI Mic 2.

question

Is this compatible with dslr cameras? Does it need phantom power? Thanks
Asked by: Kelly
This device requires a powered 1/8 jack to operate and is intended for use with mobile devices. This is a MEMS microphone, which is very similar to a condenser in its functionality, sensitivity to acoustic detail and requiring a power source to operate. The chief difference is, however, that it operates on less power, the kind already being provided by every mobile device with a compatible 3-ring 8th-inch connector. This way, the MVL is plug-and-play with no need to toggle on an additional power source in order to use the mic, and power drain on your device's battery will be minimal while the mic is in use.

question

Does it work with ipad 2?
Asked by: Anonymous
I'm not sure, but it works great with the iPhone 6s. So I see no reason why it shouldn't work with an iPad, since there built with the same technology as the iPhones, but I've never tested it with my iPad. My talent uses it for VOs and radio ads that he does on a weekly bases and it works great.
