Do you really need an external microphone for your smartphone?

If you’re a digital content creator who’s constantly making fresh videos and sharing viral stories, then you would definitely benefit from smartphone mics and audio accessories.

Smartphones today are packed with astonishing video features that can compete head-on with bigger cameras. Shooting on mobile is the best way to create and share in-demand content to millions of people in real time. Using an external mic for your Android or iPhone can help you publish even faster by skipping the editing process of low-quality audio.

With a smartphone mic, you get to capture voices and ambient sounds crystal clear. Sometimes, your iPhone’s tiny built-in microphone tucked within a tight space just won’t cut it.

What’s the best smartphone mic for your device?

Generally, a microphone for smartphones should be light and not too big so that you can use it with ease while connected via the phone’s jack or mounted onto the grip. If you plan to shoot a wide variety of activities, your best bet would be either a shotgun mic or a lapel mic. They are both small and portable, with plug-and-use options that don’t require batteries.

Shotgun Microphones for Smartphones

Smartphone shotgun mics can come as a plug-and-play design or a professional-grade directional mic that can also be used on DSLR cameras. They’re compatible with Android phones and iPhone models with a 3.5mm socket. As shotgun mics are directional, they pick up sounds right in front of them and shield the noise from other directions. They’re great for interviews, outdoor shoots, and musical performances.

Lavalier Microphones for Smartphones

If you want a simple lapel or lavalier microphone for your smartphone, an affordable battery-free plug-in model will do. Wireless lapels let your subject move freely, but if you want the same flexibility for your wired mics, go for those with a generous cable length. A decent lavalier has a good signal-to-noise ratio, a foam cover for filtering distortions, and a sturdy clip to attach to clothing. These are the first three qualities to note, as they can affect the quality of the speech you’ll record.

Smartphone audio accessories to use with your microphone

Expand your mic’s functions with accessories that eliminate unwanted noise and movements. You can get furry windscreens for outdoor shoots on a stormy day, rigs for mounting the mic securely, and tripods for stabilizing shots, as well as additional lights, cables, and adapters. Bring these video-making essentials together, and you can now shoot awesome videos anywhere with your own mobile studio.

But the choices can be overwhelming, and it can be difficult to tell which equipment works well with one another. Cut the confusion by getting a smartphone video kit, a bundle of add-ons composed of every audio accessory you need. From a simple starter duo of a mic and muff to all-in-one sets complete with wireless mic systems, a video kit can improve the production value of any clip shot from a smartphone.
