Polsen MO-PL1 Reviews

Just right for the task

I wanted an inexpensive lavalier mic to use with my iPad for making crafting videos for YouTube. This fits the bill perfectly. I especially appreciate the long cord, so I can easily move around while working on my craft and not have to worry about pulling on the iPad on the tripod.

Good Price and Quality

Sound quality good by price. Highlights for the carry case. The long cable are great for use with a tripod.

Everything I was expecting

This microphone came with a fairly sensitive element, an effective windscreen, mic clip, 12 foot of cable, and a storage bag. The bag is a bit small, but it is usable. As for the jack, it is a TRRS made for mobile devices, utilizing the second ring and the sleeve for the audio. It would be nice if there was an adapter that this same mic could then be used on a TS/TRS configuration, such as a computer. The 12 foot of cable is about as far as I would want to go (18 foot being my personal max) as the longer a mic cable gets, the more interference it will tend to pick up. So far, I have used this mic primarily on a Samsung Galaxy S7, but also an older S5. In both situations, it provided a clean pickup that required no post-production gain +/- alterations. For the money, this is an excellent choice for a mobile-only microphone.

This mic is great for the price, however I would recommend spending a little extra for a mic with better sound quality

Not bad as long as you keep the mic away from your mouth, like away, even though this is supposed to be placed on your shirt, you need to keep it 2-3 feet away to get the best sound. or use a recorder that gives you the ability to control the audio input.

Very good microphone, perfect fit

I use it to make professional video, and short self taped videos. I choose to record with a smartphone for convenience, and it does the job perfectly. Note that it might be a little sensitive for the iphone's voice recorder. I downloaded another recording app, and the level is perfect. Perfect level on my android device as well. I highly recommend this mic!

Economical and it works!

I'm a professional actor and have to do a lot of self-tapes to audition. Using this microphone makes it very easy to speak quietly and still be audible for the more intense passages which are sometimes required. The cord is long enough for proper camera distancing, no battery is required, the jack connects solidly to my Android cell phone, the collar clip is robust and the foam-shielded mic picks up every nuance. In fact it's infinitely better and less expensive than the one it replaced. Buy this by all means- if I can afford it, you can!

Works fine

This lavalier mic can go under clothing while recording and it will not create a brushing sound. No need to purchase covers for it. When recording from the cell phone, always use a lavalier like this to prevent room echo. The phone's sound system picks up echos that our ears do not hear.
