Overview

The smartLav+ is a broadcast-grade wearable microphone designed for use in a wide range of film, television and broadcast scenarios, or wherever broadcast quality audio is required in a discreet, portable format without the complication and expense of additional wireless equipment.

With the smartLav+ the user simply mounts the microphone on the talent, connects it to a smartphone or tablet headset jack and records via the R˜DE Rec app for iOS, or any other audio app of their choice.

By employing a professional quality omni-directional condenser capsule the smartLav+ picks up sound equally from all around the microphone, allowing for versatility when mounting and ensuring a high degree of user-friendly operation.

A foam pop shield is supplied to minimise wind noise and vocal plosives (hard ˜b', ˜t' and ˜p' sounds), as well as a durable mounting clip with in-built cable management. Its Kevlar reinforced cable ensures that you never stretch or snap your microphone under normal usage conditions.

The smartLav+ is compatible with any audio app that accepts input from the headset connection, however it has been designed to pair perfectly with R˜DE's R˜DE Rec app for Apple iOS devices. R˜DE Rec turns the user's iOS device into a fully-featured field recorder, with a wide range of equalisation presets to suit various recording situations, in addition to professional editing functions and the ability to publish to SoundCloud and Dropbox direct from the app.

    Comments about Rode Microphones smartLav+ Lavalier Microphone for Smartphones:

    I use this with my iPhone 6 for Periscoping (live broadcasting over the phone) and it works wonderfully. Improves the sound and makes you more professional. Great product for the price. Wireless are nice but cost a lot more.

    Comments about Rode Microphones smartLav+ Lavalier Microphone for Smartphones:

    This Rode smartLav+ sounded very crisp & clear. For this little device delivered quality sound I was surprise by it. I am totally willing to pay for this smartLav+ Lavalier Microphone even thought it's pricey! However, Guitar Center will do a price match so I was able to get it below the MSPR price.

      Comments about Rode Microphones smartLav+ Lavalier Microphone for Smartphones:

      I am a videographer doing primarily weddings. I have done three in the last two weeks and have found created very reliable.
      The most recent was actually a 50th Anniversary and the groom didn't speak because of a stroke. The couple was mostly seated at the alter of the church. They had a drape of the two chairs on which they were seated. I watched the mic between the couple on the drape. It picked the bride and the pastor quite well include the readers a few feet away on the house sound system.
      Ian very satisfied for the price.
