Best Wireless Mic for iPhone! (and Android)


what's up guys i'm ben from authentech, and this audio is being recorded wirelessly over into my iphone in thisvideo i'll be showing you guys why and how i'm recording wireless audio overinto my phone i'll also be shown a little comparison of the built-inmicrophone versus a wireless mic and as a little bonus at the end i'll becomparing all these lenses versus each other on the iphone to see which one isbest note this video is not sponsored by anyone here i paid for all myselfall the links to the products and adapters will be down below make sureyou're following me on instagram for my behind the scenes shots and let's jumpright in now it's been said over and over that video is very importantnowadays it's just about everywhere on our phones we see these platformspopping up left and right a lot of people are trying to get into the videocontent creation game and i'm on the train that it's not the fanciest gearthat's needed nowadays especially when you're starting out but it's often thebest camera is right here the smartphone that's in your pocket and a lot ofpeople say half a video is the audio so it's so important to be getting goodclean audio now the video quality on our phones is getting better and better butthere's only so much that the built-in microphones can actually accomplish ipersonally shoot so much of my b-roll footage on my phone for workflow andefficiency now sometimes i'm doing an unboxinglet's say and i need good clean audio and this is what took me down thisadventure for this microphone system owen don't worry all this isn't just forthe iphone but it's for androids as well i haven't forgotten about you i'll showyou all that at the end as well now i also pretty deeply researched a lot ofthose plug-in shotgun microphones and they seemed okay but it's going fromlike a d-minus to a c-minus it was just a small step up but i was looking for ana+ audio option and I wanted something wireless and this brings it so for themain microphone system I'm using the rode wireless go now there's a lot ofpros to the rode wireless go system for example I saw its pricing is down to$180 right now on prime again compare that to historical and other competitorson the market and that's actually a fair price it's super timeand portable I love these little grips nice attention to detail there's rubberfor extra grip in there it's perfectly sized to slip into a cold shoe mountthey both are USB C rechargeable internal batteries there's lots ofutility that a wireless mic system will give you I love the built-in microphoneon here we just turn it on and the auto pair plus there's a mic jack in so wecan plug in a wired laugh or even better closer quality audio the lav mic thatI'm using today is from rode as well again I'll link that down below I thinkthis came in that Wireless filmmakers kit I bought a long time ago which isway more expensive than this so here's the little lightning to mic Jack donglethat goes into our iPhone I'll also show you the USBC dongle that I found thatworks on my Samsung we're gonna use the trrs the three rings adapter going intothe iPhone the TRS goes into the receiver here it's receiving that signalsent from the transmitter and then from here we can use the built-in microphoneclip it anywhere or plug in a wired lab for even better quality audio here's aninteresting low comparison of the internal mic versus the rode wireless gomicrophone plus the wired lav in there as well and this is audio on the roadWireless go I'm about 10 feet away and I can be talking here I can be facing thisway or this way and you should be hearing some crisp clean audio and thisis audio on the road Wireless go how does the audio sound and this is audioon the wired lavalier microphone shooting over to the road wireless gohow does the audio sound this is audio on the road Wireless go through alavalier standing about 10 feet away shooting on the iPhone 11 Pro how doesit sound powering up the cycle board roverputting in the password send speed to level five and we're offnow here's just one cool little example of a wireless mic system if I wasnormally zipping along here on the path going about 20-ish miles per hour thefootage on this iPhone might look good but the audio is gonna sound like trashbut with this wireless mic system and a lavalier we should be able to pick upsome crispy clear audio while scooting along plus camera can be looking at meor we can slide it down to be looking at whatever subject we want flying aroundlook at these cool wheels here's this big motoryada-yada we're down here at the lake and the audio should be sounding prettygood if only we had some image stabilization on this ultra wide lensthat would be really nice but what we don't so that's unfortunate maybe a fewthings to note here now of course the obvious a wireless microphone system isgonna offer a million times better and more options in capturing clear qualityaudio that otherwise would be impossible with the built-in microphone or a wiredlav only also this rode wireless go system has been performing really wellfor me I've been really impressed and satisfied in the purchase again theprice point seems to be pretty budget-friendly the built-in mic on theroad go transmitter isn't bad and I totally forgot to use their includeddead cats which would have probably helped minimize that wind noise a wiredlav mic is gonna get you even better quality audio but it's not needed for alot of cases and that should save you some money the distance here isimpressive now rode rates them up to 70 meter range or about 230 feet I'm notexactly positive on my distance here but google map says I walked about 200 feetaway to those trees and it sounded fine the whole time and of course I'm still ahuge Android fan I tried it on my Samsung Galaxy Note 10.

1 eating aslightly different adapter this one is USB typesee I found it on Amazon for about ten bucks it works great just plug straightin we have a mic in Jack worked perfect audio check this is going into the note10 plus and here's a fun video quality comparison test of that front cameraversus the rear primary lens versus the rear ultra-wide this is 4k 30 video onthe rear-facing primary lens how does it look about dynamic range and this isvideo 4k 30 on the rear-facing ultra wide lensnow it should look drastically different but how's dynamic range clarity andquality now this is video 4k 30 on the front-facing camera which is prettyawesome it can do 4k 30 and here's a little stabilization test some of thekey details I noticed first the HDR and dynamic range looks really great on allthree even that front-facing lens however there's plenty of this obviousflickering effect from the HDR I believe and it sort of ruins the shot now I hopeApple can improve this down the line secondly I was surprised that thatfront-facing lens was as wide field-of-view as it is this is great tosee it's good for action shots selfies vlogging or whatever as for clarity wellI'm grateful all lenses can record up to 4k resum however you should be able tosee slight sharpness differences like that primary rear lens is the bestquality then I'd say the other two are sort of tied that front-facing lenslooks a little bit soft and that ultra wide can appear a tad pixelated it's notbad by any means now this is a great reminder for all if you want the verybest quality shoot on that primary rear facing lens I hope this video washelpful in some way or another thank you guys so much for watching and until Isee you next time let's live authentic.
