Top critical review
Only worth the money if you want a more unidirectional mic on your phone.
on 1 May 2015
I bought this for use with my HTC One (M8) smartphone for making fieldrecordings of interviews and music for my ethnomusicological research which requires me to have a discrete and small microphone. The mic is about how good I would expect for the price i.e. not very good, but there are some advantages too.
•It's much more directional than the default mic on my phone so it's good for cutting down on background noise.
•It has a poor bass response which can make speech clearer if there's wind
•Poor bass response makes speech and music sound tinny and less satisfying
•Quality overall is no improvement on the phone's in-built mic
•Only records in mono—no stereo.
