3.0 out of 5 stars Does the job but could be better, 26 April 2014
This review is from: RØDE SMARTLAV Lavalier Microphone For Smartphones (Electronics)
I was looking for a lavaliere that could be plugged in my ipad/iphone and that was not going to cost me a fortune. This one fits the bill. The sound is OK (not amazing but for the price I have to be realistic). It comes with a pop filter that avoids most unwanted noises - within reason. I use it also to film youtube videos and there is an improvement in the quality of the audio - not massive.

The problems that I have with this mic are:
- the wire is too short (I had to purchase a wire extension)
- the pop filter keeps on coming off (I have glued it in as I was far too frustrated because it kept falling on the floor)
- you need to purchase the rode app to make it work properly

Overall it is great for its price range, but not great if you want a significant improvement in the quality of your audio.
