    I use this Mic specifically with my GoPro Hero4. Sound quality is great on this product. When you have it at a specific distance. Too close. You'll hear your mouth breathing. Too far you can't hear. The packaging seemed really cheap which normally feels like the product is cheap. In this case. I was wrong. However; this is my big complain, the mic doesn't come with any wind resistors. So if there's wind, you WILL hear it and loud. So wether it's your mouth or nature, you won't be happy. Best Buy didn't have any plushy wind resistors as far as I can see and per employees. So I highly recommend buying the plushies from Amazon or EBay before you buy the mic so that you are ready to go once you get it out the package. That's my only complain. Aside from no plushies, the quality is great for GoPros. Check out my videos on YouTube. Search 4erazmo and click away. All videos used the mic. But I recommend watching the motorcycle ones. To truly get the best example. Hopes this helps.

    Used with my Google Pixel XL but needed a breakout cable attached to the headphone jack first. You need a 4-contact headphone/microphone splitter cable to plug in to your phone first, then plug this in to the dedicated microphone jack on the splitter cable. This is probably the case with most phones. Otherwise your phone just thinks you plugged headphones in and you won't hear any sound on your videos at all. Don't forget to unplug the splitter cable from the phone to listen to the recorded video (unless you plug in dedicated headphones to the headphone side of the splitter cable.) See attached image. ALSO be aware that your default camera recording app may not record sound from external devices. My Pixel didn't; I had to use the "Open Camera" app.

    The sound from using this microphone seems to be quite good but...I bought it to mount in my motorcycle helmet as suggested by moto-vloggers on YouTube. They were using them with GoPro Hero 4 though and I am using it with Hero 5 Black using the appropriate GoPro microphone adapter that is also way too big with way too short of a cord by the way, and I am having popping issues. I have covered the mic ends with furry wind silencers but still have the issue. Sounds great indoors though and when riding under 35mph. Still looking into this problem and haven't had a lot of good testing days or a chance when there was. Midwest...winter.

    Sony Clip On Microphone

    I had to do recording into a PowerPoint project for a Social Media class I just took. I bought one of these microphones to use with Sony Digital Voice Recorder I bought at the same time. This microphone allowed me to work hands free with the papers I had to read my notes from to go into my PowerPoint Presentation. This really made things a lot easier. The sound recorded using this microphone was clear. The only issue I had was that I clipped the microphone onto my tee shirt and when I swallowed the mic moved causing some sound because it was so close to my throat. So, just make sure you have it hooked lower so your swallowing does not cause this effect.

    This little microphone it seems to work great I had any position that you replace it. It works well with the recorder I got so there is no problem using it with many songs. I would think you were good with the phones but I have not tried it. This little microphone seems to work great I had any position that you replace it.

    Much Better Than I Thought

    Had to grab a new mic because the lapel that worked didn't have a clip and the one that did... well, you know. Where else but Best Buy as the number one stop for a hard to find item? Even during sound check, I could tell this was going to be something special. My last shoot with it was a group of three in a six' spread and the audio was good- none of the empty room effect most mikes would have. Thought maybe it would come with a windscreen, but don't think it did.

    Better than most expensive Mics

    I also bought a more expensive mic ($65.00) in addition to this Sony. I have a tape recorder that I use to dictate my notes at work. Once I'm done, I download the audio to my Dragon Naturally Speaking software to transcribe my notes. This Sony Mic worked great and it picked up my voice clearly so that the software was able to recognize my spoken words. The other more expensive mic did not do a very good job so I'm very happy with my Sony Mic. Highly recommended.

    Bought this along with a Sony Digital Voice Recorder. Works well when recording myself for my study sessions. Playback shows that it works and is very clear. Not sure how it would work in a noisy or windy environment. Have read that you may need some foam to cover the portion that takes in sound, but you can easily purchase them online if need be. I, as of yet, have not needed to purchase them.
