    Fantastic! Didn't pick up annoying clock!

    Absolutely fantastic mic. Convenient plug and play -- no need to download any app. Researched about 10 other alternatives, most of them require GarageBand (I hate learning and downloading new apps!) or self apps. This one, you simply plug it in and you're good to go! The best part is it's a unidirectional mic. Which means it picks up the sound of the source you're really after. Not the background noise. I recorded my son playing the grand piano. I was sitting next to (on my left) an antique grandfather clock with a really loud tick-tock (sounded like an annoying metronome!). My son was on right, equally far from me as the clock. I pointed the mic at him hoping it would just pick up his playing, although the tick tock was, to my ears, was simply so loud and distracting. Lo and behold, the resulting video was just the piano playing. No trace of the tick-tock! I compared it to videos I took before w/ my iPhone without the mic. The clock's ticking was as loud distraction to the music (like an offbeat metronome as background beatbox).

    Bought this microphone to enhance the audio on my iphone xs max for my real estate marketing videos. This mic is super easy to use and is a tremendous improvement to using the built-in mic on the iphone itself. I highly recommend this mic!

    I bought this Sobi could film short videos for my job. I work in a noisy Salin environment and I was still able to pick up voices while keeping relevant background sounds.

    This is a great mic for vlogging from the iPhone. Great audio. Problem I have is that I have to disconnect to hear playback, but I guess that is an iOS problem.

    I love this version of the rode for iPhone. Very easy to use and setup. If I had to asked for more it would be to draw less juice.
