The MXL MM-160 Lavalier Microphone is made to record audio onto cell phones, tablets and other mobile devices. As a small lapel microphone, the MM-160 is positioned close to the source of speech, so audio comes through loud and clear to your mobile device. Best of all, the MM-160 lav mic works with virtually any smartphone or mobile device through the 3.5mm jack. Plug it in and you're ready to record using virtually any video or audio recording app. The MM-160 lavalier lets you walk and talk freely with nothing more than a phone in your pocket recording your speech. For video production, the lavalier is easily hidden on camera. The 6 ft. cable is long enough to allow the mic to be worn by the person on-camera while another person records with the mobile device. The cable has a built-in headphone jack to allow audio playback and audio monitoring (with appropriate app). The MM-160 is an omni-directional microphone with a clip and 3.5mm cable. A windscreen is supplied to minimize plosives.
HOW IT WORKS:
MXL Mobile Media microphones connect to the 3.5mm (1/8") jack on your mobile device. They are compatible with Apple® iPhones, Android™ or Windows® phones and tablets. The microphones can be used to record audio only or audio for video. In the latter case, the audio will be recorded simultaneously with the video via a video app onto one file.
Most apps will detect the external microphone immediately. No set-up is required. Simply plug in your Mobile Media microphone and you're ready to record. (If the app does not detect the microphone, consult the app's instructions.)
MXL Mobile Media microphones are ideal for journalists, students, musicians, telecommuters, and mobile videographers. Audio recording goes mobile with MXL Mobile Media Microphones.
