The RODE smartLav is a professional-grade omnidirectional lavalier microphone with Apple iOS and Android compatible TRRS connector. Designed for use with iPhone, iPad and iPod touch as well as Android mobile devices. Comes with tie clip and foam windscreen as well as a small carrying pouch. Compared to it's big brother the "RODE Lavalier" at $229 - the smartLav is quite the bargain.
Tip: Mount the smartLav inverted on the speaker's chest to avoid "plosives" - gusts of air which can cause "poof" sounds and distortion on the mic capsule. It's also a good idea to use the cable strain relief on the included tie clip - and we recommend going one step further by taping a "loop" of the cable to the wardrobe (shirt, blouse, jacket, etc.). Tip: Order the optional $10 RODE Vampire (AKA Viper) clip which allows you to easily attach a lavalier on to a t-shirt or under clothing! A must have for any lav owner!
