It also makes it sound more natural when you turn your head while speaking. The connectors are gold-plated, which provide the best possible signal transfer and resist corrosion. An included storage pouch with a locking drawstring holds everything neatly, and a foam windscreen diffuses unwanted wind noise, so you always get the best sound. . . Added Lightning audio connectivity for your Apple iOS device. The included LavMicro U1 (SR-C2000) Lightning adapter is also detachable and has a male 3.5mm plug on the other end. When not being used by the LavMicro U1A, this adapter can be used to attach other audio sources to your Apple iOS device, such as other 3.5mm microphones the Saramonic Vmic Mini, the output of mixers such as the Saramonic SR-PAX1, or wireless receivers like the Saramonic UwMic9 RX9, just to name a few.
