The Saramonic SmartMic is an ultra-compact condenser microphone that plugs directly into the headphone jack on your iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch or Android device and captures broadcast-quality sound. Even though it weighs less than an ounce, the SmartMic dramatically improves the sound quality of the videos you shoot, and it greatly enhances the sounds you capture with your audio recording apps. The SmartMic is the perfect way to record great sound for YouTube Videos, Vlogging, Livestreaming, Podcasting and more.
The SmartMic features a compact directional shotgun capsule that helps you grab sounds in front of the mic. Plus, an integrated swivel enables you to point it directly at the sound you want to capture. It features a built-in shockmount that helps you avoid recording unwanted vibration and handling noise. The SmartMic is ultra-compact and lightweight, so you can easily bring it with you everywhere you go, and it will never need batteries or charging.
In addition to being compatible with Apple devices that feature headphone jacks, the SmartMic can also be used with iPhones that don’t have headphone jacks when you use a Lightning adapter (sold separately). It’s also compatible with most Android phones and tablets that feature headphone jacks. It’s an extremely affordable way to give your mobile videos and audio recordings a professional level of sound quality.
