I recently purchased the RØDE smartLav+ lavalier microphone. It’s an awesome little lavalier microphone that plugs into your smartphone.
This video is my first test run using the microphone. I doctored the audio up just a bit – I used a little soft compression on the audio to even out my loud/soft/loud talking, and boosted the volume up by 6db.
But I didn’t have to cut out any hissy noises, which is pretty sweet. The only bad part of the audio is the rumble from my car – not bad at all (well, unless you are listening closely with headphones. Then it’s pretty rumbly).
I made the video with my iPhone. I need to learn how to point the video at my head!
Anyway – take a listen. As far as ease-of-use goes, this microphone is very easy to use!
