Videos comparing the iPhone built in microphone with this microphone and the PERISCOPE-MIC-1:
New! Now available for the iPhone, Blackberry, most “Smartphones” and computers using 4-pole (TRRS) connector, this is professional miniature mono Cardioid (unidirectional) condenser lavaliere or instrument microphone with high quality shielded cable. The sound quality of this microphone far surpasses the built-in microphones on these devices.
This clip-on lavalier mic provides crisp, full-sounding voice pickup. The AT831 also excels as an instrument mic, especially for pickup of acoustic guitar with the optional AT8444 guitar adapter. Excellent gain before feedback and suppression of background noise.
