Rode SmartLav+ Microphone Review, Unboxing and Sound Quality Test

If you’re looking to upgrade the sound quality of your YouTube
videos then check out the Rode SmartLav Plus Microphone.  

It’s a great little microphone that you can take anywhere that your iPhone or Smartphone goes. When you’re ready to shoot a movie just plug the microphone into your iPhone and you’re ready to go.

Here are the top 10 benefits for using
the Rode SmartLav Plus Microphone

Watch the video below..

1. Broadcast quality sound
The sound quality is the same as if using a large microphone

2. Plugs directly into your iPhone or smartphone
No longer do you have to worry about replacing batteries to your microphone

3. Use anywhere such as your office, car or even outside.
In your office you can plug it into your phone or your tablet

4. Compatible with IOS and Android devices
This means you can plug it directly into your iPhone or any smartphone that uses the Android system

5. Omnidirectional
This means it will pick up sound from every direction even behind the mic

6. Minimizes wind noise
The foam windscreen that comes with the mic eliminates wind noise when recording outside.

7. Turn your iPhone into a fully-featured field recorder
Install the RØDE Rec app to adjust and monitor the sound that you’re recording from your mic.

8. Extremely portable
The handy pouch that is included with your purchase enables you to put your microphone in your pocket.

9. Well made and reliable.
The Rode SmartLav microphone is Australian made and owned

10. Free 1 year extended warranty

The only suggestion that I have is that the microphone cable could be a little longer than 3 feet. This can easily be fixed by purchasing the 20 foot extension cable. Just click the link in the description to check it out.

So if you want to upgrade the sound quality of your YouTube videos I highly recommend the Rode SmartLav+ Lavalier Microphone. It’s is only $79.00.
