OmnidirectionalRØDE SmartLav

Omnidirectional Condenser Microphone

The Rode SmartLav is an omnidirectional lavalier mic that plugs directly into the iPhone/iPad TRRS headset jack. It is designed for professional-quality audio capture of speaking voice when paired with any compatible iOS device.

The microphone measures approximately 5mm x 25mm, and is mounted at the end of a 45-inch (1.1m) cord. The connector is gold-plated.

The capsule is a miniature omnidirectional electret.

The mic is supported by the Rode Rec HD ($5.99) and Rode Rec LE (free) apps, available from the iTunes App Store. Both allow recording via the SmartLav at sample rates up to 48kHz. The mic works with iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch — presumably, any iOS device whose headset has a microphone built in.

The SmartLav ships with a foam windscreen, a tie clip, and a soft storage pouch.
