Microphones that Make Great Stocking Stuffers

Smartphones are great for a lot of different things, but recording crisp, clean and powerful audio recordings generally isn’t one of them. If you are interested in getting the best audio out of your smartphone you certainly need an external microphone.

Thankfully, most of them are very affordable and generally pretty easy to use. Also, with Christmas right around the corner, they make a great stocking stuffer. There is no better time than the present to pick one up for a loved one (or for yourself)!

Without any further ado, here are some of the best options out there for external smartphone microphones:

Movo MA100 Omni-Directional Microphone - $14.95
At barely over $10, this is an amazing option for a stocking stuffer gift for your friends or family. It is quick to set up, easy to use, and much better than the built-in microphone on your device. In addition to being compatible with your smartphone, it will also work with laptops, digital recorders and more. If you are after great value, you can’t do better than this.
Movo MA200 Smartphone Omni-Directional Microphone - $19.95
If you are looking for an affordable, compact and solidly constructed smartphone mic, look no further than the MA200. It weighs less than .6 oz and is perfect for those who want to record on the go. This product also features an adjustable head that lets you maneuver the mic in whatever direction you want for the best clarity.
If you require an external mic for conducting interviews, this could be the one for you. This mic features two separate microphone heads, which connect into a single wire. Each head records individually and the “interviewer” mic has 5 feet of cable, while the “interviewee” has 8 feet. This allows for comfortably positioning without stretching the cable.
If you have a bit of a larger budget (or are looking for a one stop shop for all audio recording needs), check this one out. It is very portable, while also giving you high-quality professional audio. It has two condenser microphones, an equalization feature and is great for many different situations and scenarios.
