Take it from the boardroom to the pulpit or anywhere you go, the Rode SmartLav Lavalier Microphone is a professional-grade wearable microphone designed for use in a wide range of applications. Using an omni-directional capsule the SmartLav picks up sound equally from all around the microphone and can be mounted on the user, pointing away from the face to reduce plosives.
The Rode smartLav uses a standard TRRS connection, which plugs directly into your smartphone or tablet's headset input and can be used on iOS and Android based smartphones and tablets. The SmartLav is supplied with a foam pop shield to minimize wind noise and vocal plosives (hard ‘b’, ‘t’ and ‘p’ sounds), as well as a durable mounting clip with in-built cable management.
The smartLav works with any audio app that accepts input from the headset connection, however it has been designed to pair perfectly with Rode’s Rode Rec app for Apple iOS. Rode Rec turns your iOS device into a fully-featured field recorder, with a wide range of equalisation presets to suit various recording situations.
The smartLav is fully compatible with the iPhone 5, iPhone 4S, iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS, iPhone 3G, iPad (3rd and 4th generation), iPad 2, iPad, iPad mini, iPod touch (1st generation through 5th generation) and is compatible with Android OS Devices through other recording apps for Android.
