The RODE smartLav+ is a broadcast-grade wearable microphone designed for use in a wide range of applications, from the boardroom to the pulpit, the car to the classroom, or wherever broadcast quality audio is required in a discreet, portable format, without the complication and expense of additional wireless equipment. By employing an omni-directional capsule that picks up sound equally from all around the microphone, the smartLav+ can be mounted in a variety of positions and orientations on the subject.
The smartLav+ works with any audio app that accepts input from the headset connection, however it has been designed to pair perfectly with RODE’s RODE Rec app for Apple iOS. RODE Rec turns your iOS device into a fully-featured field recorder, with a wide range of equalization presets to suit various recording situations.
The smartLav+ is supplied with a foam pop shield to minimize wind noise and vocal ‘plosives’ (hard ‘b’, ‘t’ and ‘p’ sounds), as well as a durable mounting clip with in-built cable management.
The RODE smartLav+ uses a standard TRRS connection, which plugs directly into your smartphone or tablet's headset input. The smartLav is fully compatible with the iPhone 5S, iPhone 5, iPhone 5C, iPhone 4S, iPhone 4, iPad Air, iPad (3rd generation), iPad 2, iPad mini and iPod touch (5th generation).
