Best iPhone mic I've found ...
John Richardson, 30.12.2017
Some context for this is the fact that I previously owned a Rode IXY microphone, and while the quality of the recordings was very good, I found its software to be extremely buggy and there was a sense that Rode didn't bother integrate it properly with new versions of the OS. At a certain point mine stopped working. Perhaps the older version of the microphone wasn't compatible with the new OS software.

But on to the Shure Motiv MV88. I actually prefer the quality of the sound in this for live recordings of my band than the Rode.

The software is extremely versatile and integrates well with the Mac software. There are precepts for different types of recording and a wide variety of options for how to edit and share the sound files once recorded. I find it all more intuitive than the Ixy, and despite what I've read in reviews, I prefer the sound quality as a representation of live band music, at least. The accessories that go with it could be better, including the Shure Windjammer wind shield, which isn't a great fit for the microphone. The hard case it comes with could use a clip as is found on the Ixy case, in order to secure it to a belt or some other item. Overall I'm liking this very much so far and would certainly recommend it.

Perfect for on the go quick recordings and placeholders for Voice Overs, as well as being a staple for recording songs at rehearsals... but for reference only. Not studio quality :)

If you increase the bass, it's good
Avadhuta, 31.10.2019
After the iPhone, on which the bass is heavily pulled up, the sound seems to be devoid of bass. But if you increase the bass on the MV88 EQ, then everything sounds great, more transparent and detailed than on the built-in microphone of the iPhone.
