Edutige EIM-001 External Microphone for iPhone Using Lightning Adapter

The EIM-001 microphone for iPhone or iPad is great for vlogging, birding or recording audio. But what if you have an iPhone 7 and need to use the Lightning to headphone adapter? Will you still be able to use an external microphone like the EIM-001? Well, yes, you can. And it works really well.

The only issue I find with the Lightning to headphone adapter cable when using a microphone like the EIM-001, is that the cable is flopping around. This wasn’t an issue with previous generation iPhones because we could plug the external microphone directly into the iPhone headphone jack.

Anyway, it is what it is, right? If you want to connect an external microphone to an iPhone 7 or iPhone 7 Plus, then you need to use the Lightning to headphone adapter cable. The great thing is that it works perfectly with our Edutige microphones.

Let me know if you have any questions about what microphone to choose for your device or situation.

    1. It all depends on what you will be recording and where you will be using the microphone.

      The EIM-001 is often used in capturing bird songs far way, 20ft, 50ft, or even more. It is also used for recording lectures and meetings when you can’t get close to the sound source.

      Recently, the mic becomes popular among vloggers, recording their own voices for videos. Of course, the closer you get, the better the sound you get. You get the best recording about 6 to 10 inches but it should work fine 2 to 3 ft away or even further away in a quiet room.

      Please note that the EIM-001 is a high sensitivity and omnidirectional mic. It will pick up all the surrounding sounds, not just your own voices. If you wanted to record your own voices without any surrounding sounds/noises, you should consider other alternatives such as the EIM-003 or EIM-008. Also, you will need an EWS-003 furry windscreen if you record outdoors a lot.
