      Pretty good for the price

So far I have created two YouTube videos and one test video and I did not experience any problems what so ever. However since this is a directional mic, your native recorded sound volume will fall off the farther away you get from your device and this microphone. I was aware that this might be a factor. I tested a couple of musical instruments and this microphone was able to pick up the sound just fine. I have not downloaded or used any editing software that might be associated with this microphone. I have only tested it with my iPhone's camera system. I am giving this microphone 5 stars for what it is.

      Great Audio Pickup for Video Recording

      I bought this mic because I was suffering with the poor audio quality of the in-built iPhone mic when recording outside. The directional mic and the included wi I bought this mic because I was suffering with the poor audio quality of the in-built iPhone mic when recording outside. The directional mic and the included windjammer really focus the audio and the jammer cuts out that annoying wind noise. Rode also have an audio recording app for free on the app store called Rode Reporter. Its great for just recording audio on your iPhone or iPad and then using that in the post with video.

      good product but don't buy, Trouble with L connector

      First of all, this product build solid and the works great with original app and filmic pro, I have no problem with DOA. Then the reason why do not buy. 1,wh First of all, this product build solid and the works great with original app and filmic pro, I have no problem with DOA. Then the reason why do not buy. 1,when you plug it into your phone, the speaker muted. so after you shot a footage then playback, OMG no sound. you have to remove it to hear the sound. 2, the L connector is short, do not feet most of the case if there's only a hole for the connector. I cut my moment case to feat it. 3,the most horrible issue : this mic do not feat any extension cable. i tried all the adapter and extension , non of them works, both original app and filmic pro. 4, Big problem caused by 3 : no gimbal feat this little mic. even freefly one ,when you use the counter weight. So basically, when you need an anti-noise mic for shot film outdoor, you also need an stabilizer too, but you can't. Reason why only one star: if apple and rode make something only for apple, at least make it works, why it doesn't even work with extension cable?. cost me another 100 dollars and 2 weeks to buy and try adapters, extensions and cut my cases to make it works. and it doesn't.
