Flexible Mini Capsule Microphone for iPhone – Directional external microphone


It doesn’t matter which phone you’ve got, the video sound recording on them is all pretty woeful. It might have something to do with the mic being behind plastic and only accessible via a pinhole, but what do I know. Brando is here to help if you’ve got an iPhone with this Flexible Mini Capsule Microphone for iPhone.


It plugs directly into your headset port and swivels in any direction to give you the ultimate in sonic directionality. It comes in black or white and it works with the iPhone 3GS, iPhone 2/3G, iPod Touch 2/3G and iPod Nano 4G. Click through to Brando to hear some comparison audio files if you’re interested. It would also be super useful for live narration of your videos, or even for handsfree phone calls. Brilliant. US$14.

Voice and video recording on iPhone 3.0 brings iPhone owners to the new mobile multimedia era. Yet, sound quality is not the best. Try out the NEW Flexible mini capsule microphone which is especially designed for new iPhone 3.0. It enables you to record better sound quality. Instead of receiving sound from the iPhone speaker at the bottom, your iPhone can receive sound from any direction

  • I bought this microphone for the iPhone 3GS and it improves audio quality dramatically. However, it's still only useable within about an arm's reach of the iPhone. Beyond that the non-directional nature of the microphone makes it less useful for narration or individual interviews. Second, you absolutely MUST activate the "Airplane" mode of the iPhone, which shuts off all radio transmitters. If you don't do this , the microphone will pick up interference created by the transmitted radio signals (brackkkkk–you'll know it when you hear it!). Lastly, the microphone is shipped from China, so shipping time is a little longer than normal.
