I have tried 3 different mini microphones recently for use with my Acer A500 android tablet:
NEEWER Mini 3.5mm Flexible Microphone Mic for PC Laptop Skype
NEW! Gembird MIC-222 Compact Notebook Microphone
Mini MIC Microphone for Laptop Notebook SKYPE MSN VoiP PC ICQ
All three gave different results.
The first was the cheapest, the most robust, and best built. And gave by far superior results than the other two
When I say superior this is in regard to quality of the recording. There was little or no hum/hiss on any of the videos I shot, the audio was a little quieter than the other two but was MUCH cleaner.
If I was in a very noisy environment the last two would be completely useless. Yes they do pick up more audio but the quality is awful and on all video's shot there is a very noticable hum.
If I was pushed to say which was 2nd best I would have to say the NEW! Gembird MIC-222 Compact Notebook Microphone. This mic did perform slightly better than the last mic and was of a higher build quality.
I have only tested the above mics on my tablet and no other hardware so you may experience different results to myself..
