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.

Note:
For devices outfitted with iOS lightning ports, the SmartLav+ can make the connection using the standard TRRS to Lightning adapter kit, available separately.
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 windshield protects against plosives. The clamp makes mounting the mic a cinch. The cable is durable, being reinforced with Kevlar, so you won't find it breaking on you in the field. When you're done, store everything in the included carrying pouch.
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
The SmartLav+ is compatible with any audio app that accepts input from the headset connection; however, it has been designed to pair perfectly with Rode's Rec app for Apple iOS devices. Rode Rec turns the user's iOS device into a fully featured field recorder, with a wide range of equalization presets to suit various recording situations, in addition to professional editing functions and the ability to publish to SoundCloud and Dropbox direct from the app.
