Our Best Apple iPhone Microphones For Beginners

Sound is Very Important to your Video Production, especially when shooting outdoors! You never want your audience saying “What did he say?”

The Apple iPhone Internal Microphones were originally designed to make Phone Calls, not to record High Quality movies.

• Try to get the Microphone as close to the Actor’s mouth as possible.
• If shooting outdoors, use a 10mm “Dead Cat” over the microphone to Reduce Wind Noise.
• Set your Audio Levels Correctly in your Recording Software.
• Add Royalty Free Music and Sound Effects to your video to create suspense and add interest.
• YouTube has over 30,000 Royalty Free Music and Sound Effects that you can freely download.

Every Apple iPhone Audio Recording situation is slightly different, so there isn’t one method for recording audio.

• Hard Wired Microphones – We use a small T Lightning Connector on the Zhiyun Smooth 5S Gimbal to connect a Lightning Finch Pixel Microphone to the Apple iPhone along with a 6” USB-C to Lightning Power Cable. This requires moving the Apple iPhone out on the balancing arm only about 1/2”.

• Bluetooth Microphones – The Apple Air Pods Pro will Bluetooth to Moment Pro Camera and work very well for voice.

• Wireless Microphones – A wireless microphone records independently from the Apple iPhone. Sync the audio back in post production. These can be expensive, but can also improve your video production quality.

• Audio Check – Check your audio level of your video production before shooting. If shooting your Audio separately on another device, a simple video of a hand clip before shooting will help sync the Audio back in Post Production.

For a Lapel Microphone Solution, we use and recommend this inexpensive Finch Pixel Apple iPhone Microphone.

Features a noise filter and noise cancellation chip for clear and consistent recordings. Works well with the 10mm Dead Cat Wind Screen (Below). Microphone Specs: Frequency Range: 50Hz–20KHz. Sensitivity: -36dB ± 3dB. Signal/Noise: ≥60dB. (8g).

This 10m Dead Cat Wind Screen fits perfectly on the Finch Pixel Lapel Microphone (Above). Reduces background noise: block all excess air/wind noise but they don’t muffle the recording quality. Soft and comfortable, can protect the microphone for a long time use. If you have a mic that gives you wind noise while riding, this is the solution! (1g).
