Irig lavaliere mic works on tablets and other smart devices as well. The big thing with this mic, you can plug another lav mic into it, enabling you to record two lab mics at the same time on your cell phone or sound recorder I wouldn’t ever use this feature for film making because you’re going to have two separate signals baked into one track, you can’t separate the signals and posts so you’re gonna lose options in the Edit but some of you might find that useful. Now you can use this mic for a sound recorder or a camera but you’re going to need an adapter, I use one by road called the SC three runs about 15 bucks plug it into this adapter plug this adapter into your sound recorder or camera in your GTG. If you flip a switch you can plug a set of headphones into the same port and monitor your audio live this comes in handy if your camera doesn’t have a headphone jack don’t get too excited though if using a cell phone or a recorder. This only works in audio recording apps that allow for if you’re recording straight into a camera this only works for cameras that allow for it. Of all the ones that we’re talking about today I’ve used this one the most only because I’ve had it the longest I’ve recorded with my cell phone a few times I typically use this with an h1 zoom recorder.
The Boya lavaliere mic currently runs for about 20 bucks in the boya you get a lav mic complete with a 20 foot cable and Lr 44 battery for the mic of my clothing clip pop filter is 3.5 to 6.3 millimeter adapter and a carrying pouch. It has an inline switch one setting is for sound recorders and cameras, the other setting is for cell phones and smart devices, this mic works on anything that takes a 3.5 millimeter connection build quality the cables made of standard rubber, the capsule is plastic, it’s not really built to last. But again, it’s 20 bucks. I’ve used this mic a few times, I’m really mixed feelings about the obnoxious long cable if you’re plugging this directly into camera and then walk in 10 feet away to record yourself in like a vlog or some type of demonstration, then it’s awesome but outside of that it’s just, it’s annoying cable management is also an issue it always gets tangled up no matter how well I wrap it the last few times I used it I spent five minutes detangling the cable keys stored away and then it gets tangled because you just got so much cord, if you’re doing running gun filmmaking, just be aware that you’re gonna have to find a way to manage the cable or else you’ll end up detangling it for five minutes.
The Panda lavaliere mic lots of people are using this little guy currently runs for about 25 bucks on amazon.com in the kit you get an omnidirectional mic with a four foot cable the mic works with cell phones both iOS and Android, you get an alligator clip foam windscreen, the 9.8 foot extension cord, a really big one saw a trs two trs adapter for sound recorders laptops and camera connections, a mini USB adapter for GoPros, although I think it only works up to the hero three plus. And of course, the cute little purple panda carry patch.
This Mic comes with a lot of accessories and is powered by whatever recording device you’re using so you don’t have to worry about swapping or changing batteries, the mic cabling is only five foot long, so you’re not going to get stuck hiding extra cable, but if you do need that extra cable for selfie vlogging or interviews, you’ve got that extension, the capsule is smaller than the boy on the Xbox which makes it easier to hide. It’s also made of more durable material just like the iRig I’ve dropped this mic twice, it still works. If you have any issues I hear their customer service is on point but I wouldn’t know because I haven’t had any issues.
