Reviews around job (5.00 of 5)

  • The microphone is of course the centerpiece of this set up, and it's small but powerful, it's not studio mic quality, but it does do a far superior job of isolating and recording the subject while suppressing a lot of the ambient or background noise
  • This guy does a great job picking up the sound that you need (if you set the settings right)

Reviews around result (5.00 of 5)

  • I used this mic to record our large church choir's and orchestra's Christmas cantata and the results were truly impressive
  • Be under no doubt this mic give great results and by far outperforms the microphones build into the iPhone
  • I recorded a bunch of videos with airplane mode on and off and the results are clear.
  • I'm using it to mic my piano, and the results out of the box are pretty good, with clear stereo separation of the high and low end of the piano

Reviews around way (5.00 of 5)

  • I haven't found a reliable way to make sure that it is always recording
  • No good way to mount it to a rig for iPhone videography.
  • No reliable way to tell if interference is occurring while taking video, even with an audio level meter-equipped video app
  • Most straightforward way is to use it is the Shure App, although it does works with most other recording apps.
  • I use it to record my music lesson and it does in the most useful way.

Reviews around product (4.59 of 5)

  • Awful product
  • Even if I had been using it straight from March thru July that is still not a good product
  • But the product itself works and records nice quality sound, but it is a pain in the behind to deal with it if you use a protective case.
  • It is a great product for whatever recording your own music, covers or live videosWorth the price though ~~
  • If you use your phone to capture audio frequently, I recommend this product.

Reviews around thing (4.33 of 5)

  • A bit pricey but for practicing, recording meetings, and even doing podcasts, it really simplifies things and with a much higher quality.
  • I want to record my music using iPhone 7's amazing camera and with this little beautiful thing I now have amazing audio to go with it
  • This fancy little thing has great sound quality for a phone mic and it’s pretty sturdy
  • A bit pricey but for practicing, recording meetings, and even doing podcasts, it really simplifies things and with a much higher quality.
  • But the best thing is being able to make 24 bit recordings and export them as a lossless WAV file, for editing, etc

Reviews around recording (4.33 of 5)

  • There's a noticeable improvement with the MV88, and it's really amazing to hear how much better recordings are
  • I think the best option is to use it in "flat mode" when recording and manipulate your audio recordings as needed in postproduction
  • The Shure Documenter MV88 iOS Digital Stereo Condenser Microphone joins the landscape of new microphones that utilize the iPhone Lightning connector providing a greater confidence that recordings will sound good, as opposed to using the headphone jack
  • Takes a bit to understand app that goes with this mic and instructions not great on making the best recordings
  • Many of the poor reviews are using it for speech or "quiet" recordings.

Reviews around app (3.97 of 5)

  • Great sound, nice app with it that gives trim and pattern control.
  • There's been times however when using the filmic Pro app on an iPhone 7+ when I'd lose all audio saved
  • I'm not sure if this is an app bug, an iOS bug, or a hardware bug.
  • You don’t have to exclusively use their app for the mic to work.
  • The app that you must download is very good and easy to use.

Reviews around microphone (3.94 of 5)

  • Tips: check the light on the condenser, if the light is on that means the microphone is working
  • Unlike cheap microphones, this is a microphone that I would gladly use to record live music performances (I am a music student).No documentation is included with the microphone, but there is a picture of their apps on the side of the box, so I looked them up and downloaded them
  • This is a great microphone and all of my callers comment on the qualityI have the phone mounted on a tripod on the desk and use it as a speakerphone
  • The microphone in the box does not look like as advertised
  • If you need a solid microphone for your iPhone/iPad, get this.

Reviews around case (3.92 of 5)

  • I didn't like the fact that I had to take my phone out of its protective case to use the microphone
  • Professional quality Mike in a compact format with a very nice and handy carrying case
  • Or the mass vs. using the iQ7 by about 4.1%.(192+24+41)/(192+24).(192+24+41)/(192+24+31)Claiming a 4% increase in mass would push an iPhone-plus-mic into tripod territory is baffling.“It won't work with many cases…”It fits Apple, and some Incase cases
  • It also comes with a nice hard case for storage and transport.

Reviews around fact (1.54 of 5)

  • I didn't like the fact that I had to take my phone out of its protective case to use the microphone
  • One big oversight is the fact you are not able to plug the microphone into a device that is still in its case
  • The ONLY drawback I can see is the fact that it can't be used with an Otterbox cover
  • This mic has stopped working as of yesterday, July 14, 2017 at an Orchestra Concert.

Reviews around time (1.54 of 5)

  • I've recorded at least 20 times, every time the connection between the phone and the microphone stops somehow, and it interrupts the video/audio recording
  • I had a hard time choosing between this unit in a separate digital recorder, but I figured this made more sense since I always have my phone with me
  • sound Great i like that
  • I'm getting random loud crackling and in my most recent broadcast there was a constant fuzzy sound the entire time
  • Only problem is, I'm having a hard time finding an extension cable that will work
