The Rode smartLav+ is an inexpensive, broadcast quality microphone designed for use with your iOS or Android device.

A feasible alternative to complex wireless recording systems, the smartLav+ can be discreetly attached to a shirt, collar or tie then plugged directly into your smartphone or tablet for recording.

The omni-directional microphone delivers flexibility by capturing sound equally from all angles, giving your subject the freedom to move normally without negatively affecting the recording. An improved microphone design features better sensitivity and a higher signal-to-noise ratio resulting in crisp, natural audio results.

A foam windshield minimises wind noise when being used outdoors while a cable clip ensures a subtle, neat, professional look and minimises handling noise.

Utilizing a TRRS connection, the mic is compatible with any audio app which accepts input from the devices’ headset connection and utilises plug-in power for convenience and ease of use. The Rode Rec app is strongly recommended for iOS users, taking the guess work out of recording on-site. It features a wide range of equalisation pre-sets optimised for a many common recording scenarios plus professional editing functions and the convenience of publishing direct to online services such as SoundCloud or Dropbox.
