No noticible improvement over the iPhone 4s built in recording
on 19 February 2013
OK, I didn't expect miracles from this as it's a relatively cheap mike, but I did expect to be able to tell some improvement in directionality and sensitivity over the iphone itself. In tests recording the same source in various orientations/volumes/distances, I can barely tell any directionality, hardly any extraneous noise filtering and certainly no improvement in sensitivity. In fact, as another review has noted, it introduces significant hiss compared to the phone itself. Not only that, but the connection design/mount is such that it can't cope with even a relatively skinny case. Ultimately, a complete waste of even the little money it costs. You'd be better fashioning a cone out of paper and using that to put the phone in to help it catch more sound!
