Top Recommended Microphones for iPhone Lightning Connector

2024-04-10

Theme:PA

The Lightning port has been discontinued from the iPhone 15, and all devices are now integrated with the USB Type-C port.
As someone who has been using the Lightning terminal up until now, I feel somewhat sad about this... Lol

Therefore, I would like to introduce recommended microphones for iPhone with the Lightning port!
“What is an iPhone microphone anyway?” “Why not just use the built-in mic?" If these thoughts have crossed your mind before, please take a look at this page first!

If you’re thinking, “I need an external mic for my phone!” “I’ll still use the Lightning connector!”, please read this article until the end.

If you don’t know whether your iPhone has Lightning or USB Type-C port, I will show you how to check for it.

① Check the version of your iPhone

As I mentioned at the beginning of this article, the Lightning port was discontinued with the iPhone 15. The iPhone 15 Series was released on September 22, 2023, so if you purchased your iPhone before that date, it’s definitely a Lightning port iPhone.
Also, if you purchased your iPhone after September 22, 2023, check your iPhone series!

Open Settings > General > About to check which iPhone series you own!

In my case, I can determine that my iPhone has a Lightning terminal because mine is iPhone 11!

② Look at the shape of the charger

Let’s take a look at the terminal on the iPhone side of your battery charging cable.

Lightning terminal

It has several fine lines and is very thin.
In contrast, the USB Type-C terminal looks like this.

It is slightly thicker than Lightning and has nothing on its surface.

Now that you have distinguished the two.
Let’s take a look at some of my personal recommendations and popular microphones for the iPhone!

BOYA / BY-M2 High-Quality Sound Lavalier Microphone for iPhone/iPad with Lightning Connector

BOYA / BY-M2 High-Quality Sound Lavalier Microphone for iPhone/iPad with Lightning Connector

First of all, I want to show all of you this clip-on microphone. It can be attached to the chest as it is, so it is easy to use.
A clip-on microphone may have a strong image of a wireless microphone, but a wireless microphone can be unstable depending on how good the signal is...
Wired clip-on microphones are sometimes used for recordings where you don’t want to fail.
Since they are wired, you need to be somewhat aware of the cable when moving around, but the cable length is about 6m! If it is this long, you can move with some freedom, even if it is wired.
It is also powered by the iPhone. It can be used immediately after connection, so it was perfect for me, a sloppy person. Lol
I recommend this mic for video recording and live streaming.

Incidentally, dual types are also available.

This is a dual type lavalier microphone. Isn’t this one super rare!?
It can be used when shooting two people!(^^)!
It is also suitable for interview recording!

Shure / MV88+DIG-VIDKIT Microphone for Smartphone for Video Shooting

Shure / MV88+DIG-VIDKIT Microphone for Smartphone for Video Shooting

Next, I would like to recommend this microphone to all video creators.
As the name “video kit” suggests, it is very well equipped with accessories.

AMV-88WS Windjammer
AMV-PC Smartphone Clamp / Shoe Mount Microphone Clip
AMV-LTG15 Lightning Cable (38cm)
AMV-USBC15 USB-C Cable (38cm)
Manfrotto®PIXI Mini Tripod
Roll-Up Tool Bag
(Taken from the manufacturer’s website)

A Lightning cable is of course included in the package, so you can connect it to your iPhone as soon as it arrives and start shooting.
Also, if you install the official Shure app, you can make more detailed sound settings. Preset mode is my personal recommendation! There are a total of 5 presets, and they adjust to the appropriate stereo width and equalization for speech, vocals, instruments, and other recording situations.
Since it is made by Shure, which has produced many famous microphones, you don’t have to worry about sound quality or product quality!
If you are looking to get to the bottom of video recording with your smartphone, I hope you will consider this microphone!

Saramonic / SmartMic Di Mini Microphone for iOS with Lightning Connector

Saramonic / SmartMic Di Mini Microphone for iOS with Lightning Connector

This mic can be directly connected to iPhone via Lightning.

The angle can be flexibly adjusted.
It is also omni-directional, allowing sound to be recorded from all directions. For example, it can be used to record meetings or field recordings. It can also be used when you want to record the reflection sound of a room.
I recommend this microphone for a wide range of situations, from general use to audio recording for acoustic enthusiasts.
It is plug-and-play, and like the BY-M2 I introduced first, can be plugged in and used immediately. It is very easy to use.

Saramonic / Blink100 B3 Wireless Microphone for Smartphone with Lightning Connector

Next is a wireless microphone with Lightning connection.
Wireless microphones for smartphones are all the rage these days, and we are seeing more and more of them in YouTube Shorts and TikTok videos. This time, I’m introducing a product that is equipped with a Lightning port and can be immediately connected to an iPhone!
First of all, the appeal of this product is its lightweight and compact design. This palm-sized mic is super convenient to carry around. Because it’s equipped with a noise canceling function, you can record clearly even when recording outdoors. While the noise-canceling mode is equipped, you can also attach the included windjammer for added peace of mind.
Best of all, since pairing occurs as soon as the power is turned on, you can connect the receiver to your iPhone, turn on the transmitter, and start recording right away!
When you hear the word ‘wireless’, you may have the impression that pairing is somehow difficult, but this is seriously incredibly easy. Or rather, since there are no special operations other than turning on the power, it is easy to forget that pairing is necessary from the start (haha).

Sound House has a lineup of many other wireless microphones for smartphones.
