In this video you’ll learn how to make a DIY wireless microphone using an iPhone, an Edutige EIM-003 and an ESL-001 extension cable. This is a great idea if you have a different camera you want to use to make your videos with and want an affordable way to get great audio. A wireless microphone is super convenient because it’s, well, wireless! But high quality wireless microphone systems are $400 to start, which is fine, but if you want the comparable audio quality for way cheaper and you already have an iPhone, then you already have half of a wireless microphone kit for your videos.

What you need

All you need is an Edutige EIM-003 microphone and an ESL-001 extension cable. And if you ever plan to film outside or vlog, then have a look at our Smart Bundle 3 that includes the EIM-003, ESL-001 and an EWS-003 furry windscreen.

Why use your iPhone

Using your iPhone as a wireless microphone gives you a small, high quality audio solution that is a convenient way for people such as mobile journalists, vloggers, documentary or narrative filmmakers, or ENG newscasters. Pretty much if you shoot videos and you have an iPhone, you can easily throw this kit into your pocket or bag and never have to worry about how to record good audio while on the go.

Compatibility

This DIY wireless microphone will work with any iPhone, the original iPhone, iPhone 3G, iPhone 3Gs, iPhone 4, iPhone 4s, iPhone 5, iPhone 5s, iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus, iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus. This will also work with the 5th generation iPod Touch. It works with the iPad, but who’s going to use an iPad for a wireless microphone, right? TOO BIG!

It will also work with Android devices, but compatibility may vary. We do have a 30 day money back guarantee if the EIM-003 doesn’t work with your device.
