EIM-008 Unidirectional External Microphone for iPhone, iPad, Smartphones, Tablets


5 in stock

Product Description

The EDUTIGE EIM-008 is a unidirectional microphone, picks up sound from directly in front of the mic capsule and rejects sounds from the sides or back. This makes the EIM-008 a great microphone for making videos or even for recording a podcast when you’re outside or in a less than quiet place indoors.

The EIM-008 is a perfect companion for iPhone and all other iOS devices, such as iPad, iPad Mini, iPad Pro, and iPod Touch. It will also work for many smartphones and tablets but your mileage may vary. Actually, the mic should work for the devices with the integrated headphone/mic jack, of course, if they support external microphone.

Android Devices: Because Android is open source there are variances in operating systems and hardware. The result is that we cannot guarantee compatibility with Android devices. Some work great with our mics, while others don’t work at all. It is always best to ask us if you are not sure.
