    Three benefits of an external phone mic: Great audio, low-noise, and free movements

    Why do you need an external iPhone microphone for recording? This small device will be much more versatile than the built-in one. It can provide sound quality with clarity even in a noisy environment, and the wirelss lavalier type supports your free movements during recording.

    Improve video audio quality

    An external microphone will have much better sound quality than the built-in microphone of the phone. Recordings with the iPhone itself may sound grainy, have a lot of ambient noise, and have echoes.

    Avoid recording ambient noise

    Good sound quality is not the same as less noise, it has to do with the polar pattern of the recording and other internal settings. Nowadays, many microphones are equipped with CVC or DSP noise reduction technology, which can filter out the human voice from ambient noise, the air conditioner sound when recording indoors, and the wind and car sound when recording outdoors.

    Expanded range for free movements

    If you're using a wired headset or the iPhone itself, the speaker's range of motion is very limited, confined to the device's immediate vicinity, or else they won't be able to hear at all. If you use a wireless lapel microphone, the transmission distance can be stretched to dozens or even hundreds of meters, which can make your video content richer and more diverse.
