It does what it's meant to do but it's a bit frustrating... Firstly the cable is very flimsy. If I take this to clubs to film it will not last long!
You have to plug the adapter into the phone first and only then plug your audio cable into the adapter. This way the phone recognizes it as a headset and stops using the internal mic. If you plug the audio cable into the adapter and then the adapter into the phone it doesn't work. Took a long evening to figure this one out. be careful on the input levels too or you will be broadcasting very badly clipping levels! Takes a bit of experimenting to get it right but not an issue.
Quite frankly I can't believe there is not a more robust solution out there - or that this is £10!
Frustrations aside it does work for the intended purpose.
I had purchased another Rode cable recently, the Rode SC7, in order to connect the Rode VideoMicro microphone to my smartphone. Despite being more expensive that generic non-branded equivalents, I was pleased with the purchase because it is well made, features a good cable, and is colour coded black for TRS (for your microphone) and grey for TRRS (for your smartphone).
Unfortunately, the Rode SC7 connection cable cannot be used with my Shure VP83 as the cable is built directly into the microphone.
That is why I had to buy a TRS to TRRS connection cable that featured a female port for a TRS connection. Once again, I looked at cheaper non-branded alternatives, but I opted for the Rode SC4 as this is a cable I can use for years to come.
Whilst I was really happy with the SC7, the SC4 is a mixed bag.
From a sound quality point of view, the SC4 seems like a good cable. I have did a few test video recordings on my smartphone and everything seems good.
From a build quality point of view, it's hard not to be disappointed with the SC4. The cable is thin; really thin. Due to this, the whole thing seems cheap. I am really surprised that they didn't use the same type of cable as the SC7. That one is coloured red, is branded with the Rode logo, and is thicker. The SC4 is black, super thin, and non branded. It wouldn't surprise me if they are just reselling generic TRS to TRRS cables under the Rode brand.
I have a similar cable to this that has TRS at the male end instead of TRRS. That cable cost me £1.00 and the cable is much thicker than the one on the Rode SC4 that cost me £10.99.
I am happy with the sound quality, but I am really not confident in this lasting any period of time. I am going to continue using this over the next few days to see how I get on, however I have ordered a cheap alternative as a backup as it seems inevitable that this will stop working at one point.
I don't want to completely discourage others from buying this cable as audio quality does seem good and it is allowing me to use my Shure VP83 LensHopper microphone with my Google Nexus 6P. You should, however, be aware that the Rode SC4 cable is vastly overpriced for what you are getting.
The cable is coiled and black on one end and grey on the other. The black end goes into your microphone and the grey end goes into your smartphone
Despite being sold on Amazon as an iPhone accessory, this should work with most modern Android smartphones. Do your research though I as some older Android phones don't work with TRRS connections properly.
I use the Open Camera app to record videos with external microphones. With my VideoMicro mic attached I was heard a significant improvement in my audio.
There are many cheaper generic TRS to TRRS cables available online, but for the price of the Rode SC7 I think it's worthwhile buying one from a respectable brand.
Check out my video to see me using the Rode SC7 with the Rode VideoMicro. Be sure to post a question if you are unsure of anything :)
Let's cut the tech jargon. The Smartlav+ is designed to be used with your phone. It won't work in other things like your PC or a GoPro or Drift Ghost S. You need an adapter and this is the one you need. Only it isn't.
The angled connector won't allow it to connect properly to recessed mic ports.I ended up trimming the rubber surround with a paring knife to make it fit.
Unfortunately, I get the feeling they tried to just be a bit too clever and justify the silly high cost of two bits of metal and a bit of wire.
I ended up buying an alternative mic (Blixxo) because it had a straight line connector included for a third of the price overall. Hope you're listening Rode.
Bought to accompany the Rode mic bought at the same time. £10 for the flimsiest piece of trash connection-ware I've ever seen. Buy it if you must but this is one item I'd take giant steps to avoid in future, I'd be cruising the cheap ebay suppliers to try their bargain price goods.
