    The Rode smartLav+ is a broadcast-grade lapel mic perfect for discreet and portable recording. Simply mount the microphone on the talent, connects it to a smartphone or tablet headset jack and records via the Rode Rec app for iOS, or any other audio app of their choice.

    Your film, made easy
    The Rode smartLav+ makes it easy and inexpensive to record multiple actors in one scene. Mount one mic to each actor and simply connect to their smartphone, check levels and hit record. Once the director calls ‘cut’ collect the devices and download the audio direct to your project. Using RØDE Rec on iOS devices you can quickly share direct from the app!

    Gaming & live streaming
    Most gaming headphones have ordinary microphones with the sound of the headphones prioritized over the quality of the microphone. The Rode smartLav+ is the perfect replacement if you want to be heard loud and clear.

Simply attach the microphone to a smartphone for a discreet and slimline solution to record the groom, minister or any other party throughout the service.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Failed to work with any hardware I own Failed to work with my phone and laptop. I bought the smartLav+ with the intention to complete online interviews on my laptop (which it does state it has PC support on the box and another reveiwer confirmed) however it did not recognize any sound. I also tested the smartlav on my phone and it also failed to recognize any sound. I confirmed my suspicion when I tried an alternative microphone for my laptop and it recognized the sound. After a quick google search I found that it requires another adaptor in order to work with PC. Cool. I wish it told me that before I pruchased. To summarisie: It's finicky with which hardware it will work with.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from What a great little product I had to do some filming for work and usually a mobile phone is used but audio is no good. Saw this product thought I'd try it in a hope it would make it a bit better. It's actually fantastic. The audio is very clear and its cheap. Works with both iPhone and Android (i use Galaxy Note 5). It's better than I expected it was going to be so am super happy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Liked it as being my first Microphone This is my first Microphone. I really liked the simplicity of this microphone. It doesn't capture significant wind noise. and even is there is some in high wind condition it can be edited in post-production. I would highly recommend this if this is your first microphone and you are on tight budget.
