Today’s smartphones are extremely powerful when it comes to taking photo and recording video, but most built-in smartphone microphones are still lagging behind. If you want to record high-quality, professional audio to your smartphone, you’ll need an external smartphone mic to level-up your production. The best smartphone microphones are typically small, portable, and connect through your phone’s existing headphone jack. Most are wired to ensure quality connectivity, but there are a few that offer bluetooth options. Many come in the form of a clip-on/lavalier mic to allow for distance and flexibility from the phones body, while others can serve as a boom mic or a handheld mic and will connect directly into the phone or attach via short wire. Shoppers should be mindful of their phones audio/headphone jack to be sure of compatibility.
