The Mic for Phones
Matt R, 21.08.2017
I use this microphone to attach to my smart phone and improve the sound when I am shooting music videos. I shoot outside in nature and in venues when I am playing live. It seems best when recording small volumes, without too much outside interference. Acoustic guitar, trumpet, etc.

I don't own a camera or DSLR but I know it works on them too. I have a mobile tripod (Tarion Multifunction Ball Head Mini Tripod) with a cold shoe mount on it so the phone sits in the tripod and the microphone sits snugly on top of the tripod in the mount. The microphone points forwards, the phone screen backwards.

So onto the actual microphone. It definitely improves the quality of the sound from a normal phone microphone. The microphone needs to be fairly close to isolate the sounds you want. I have shot in wind with the pop-shield and it really reduced the wind noise. I wouldn't record a band with this mic really. But speaking, interviews, live acoustic stuff, definitely.

You cannot monitor the sound or change the input volume which is a shame, and perhaps the only con I can find for this mic. Maybe with the correct app it would be possible. Bear in mind, it is a small mic. It's reach is not massive. You could reduce the distance by attaching it to a mic stand and using an extension from the mic to your recording device. Rode makes all the various cables you need. I bought an extension and another type of converter. Nowadays it is not simple jack to jack. There are various options of jack, TRS, TRRS etc. Smart phones need a TRRS normally and the mic needs a normal TS connection. So make sure you do some research into what connections your device needs.

Overall, I am super happy with it. Great build quality. Rugged. Amazing pop sheild and mount. Is perfect for small projects.

Big Sound in Small Size
Beatsnatcher, 11.01.2018
I can't praise this microphone enough. It's so easy to use and returns stunning audio quality with very little effort. It's lightweight and compact design makes it a no brainer to take out to any video shoot whether you're an amateur or professional.

My only criticism would be of the holder for the microphone. If you move around a lot, it moves a lot as well and some of that movement gets translated into sound disturbance in the recording. I would have loved it to be a bit more rigid.

Great product
Mairts, 22.09.2019
I use it for recording all kinds of videos with my Canon EOS M50. It really improves the sound quality SO much and I am so happy with this purchase. I also use it while hiking so the small size is also a great advantage for me. Very happy with this purchase.

Standby mic for all occasions
orenpux, 29.10.2019
I use many different microphones of various professional level and therefore I can compare the sound. This microphone certainly will not replace the more expensive and professional microphones (including
mics in Rode assortment). This mic is rather a lightweight and compact backup device that can always be with you and which can be used, for example, in windy weather. Both for the camera and for the smartphone. However, if you need really high-quality clean and beautiful sound - get ready to fork out for more expensive versions.
