    Did not work with my iPhone 6

    from Australia

    Pros

      • Doesn't work with iPhone 6

      Best Uses

        Comments about Audio-Technica ATR3350iS Omnidirectional Condenser Lavalier Microphone for Smartphones:

        I set the mike up as per instructions. It worked with a heavy guitar amplifier I have borrowed but refused to work with my iPhone 6, even when the phone was plugged into power. There's nothing on the box or in the online specs about the mobile phones with which it will or will not work. I clicked on a link on this Website which allegedly would have allowed me to ask a question about the failure to work but the resulting page came up with frame only--no capacity to ask a question. Hence I am forced to write this very negative review.

          Comments about Audio-Technica ATR3350iS Omnidirectional Condenser Lavalier Microphone for Smartphones:

          This little microphone is the best lavalier microphone in its class. It delivers good sound quality; much better than the built-in mic of a computer or a smartphone. The long cable allows producers to have flexibility in where they position their talent relative to the camera position. Users will find that It works well with cameras and smartphones. When using with computers, users will find that the sound from the mic is too low. The solution is to use a USB sound card, which boosts the sound to an acceptable level. While there are a LOT of USB sound cards on the market, the ATR2USB from Audio Technica is rock solid, and inexpensive. Are there better-sounding mics out there? Absolutely! But not at this price point. This is a wonderful entry-level mic.

            Comments about Audio-Technica ATR3350iS Omnidirectional Condenser Lavalier Microphone for Smartphones:

            I tried this microphone on my phone, computer, and video camera.

            In all cases the audio level was far too low. I can't change the microphone level on my phone. Video recorded on the phone requires me to turn the volume up all the way to here anything.

            On Windows, I turned the mic level all the way up and encountered the same problem.

            On my video camera, a Black Magic Pocket Cinema Camera, I turned the mic level all the way up and was able to get better audio than on the other platforms, but there was far too much hiss and it still wasn't loud enough.

            I'll be looking for a different solution that has level settings on the amp.

                    Here's the deal. It records much better sound than relying on your smartphone or built in mic on a camera. BUT, the issue I have experienced is the smartphone adapter that comes with it will not let me monitor my sound level when I'm recording with the lav mic. There is some issue with the jack that plugs into the phone ( in my case Apple 6+). I've tried different ear buds with different tips. So, you may not be able to monitor your sound recording with this package, but it does work well as a inexpensive mic for far better sound when using a smartphone (or DSLR).

                        I did a lot of shopping around before buying this mic. I read a bunch of reviews and listened to quite a few audio samples before deciding this would be the best bang for my buck in terms of highest quality with the lowest cost. I've only been using this mic a short why, for completely amateur purposes, but I can honestly say that this mic records voice at a much higher quality than any other mic I own and built in mics aren't even in the same ballpark.

                          I was really excited about this mic and was looking forward to using it to record sound for video projects. I used it twice with the camera and was happy. It was a little hot, so I bought a digital recorder so I could adjust the input levels. When I plugged the mic in there was no sound at all. I replaced the batteries. Nothing. Tried it with my computer. Nothing. I have had the mic for 3 months, used it a total of two times. Very disappointing.

                          Maybe I got a dud. I saw a lot of other positive reviews. Sadly, that was not my experience

                          • Q:

                            I have used this on my Samsung s5 with the enclosed adapter. I upgraded to the S7. I plug it into the headphone jack, just as I did on the s5. But, there is no sound recorded on the s7. Worked ok on the S5. I could possibly use my S5, but prefer to see how much better the S7 is. What do I have to add to the connections to make the S7 understand the mic is plugged in and not the earbuds?

                            I have a set of 3 Ask a question ATR3350iS lav mics.

                            I'd like to run them into a single XLR jack on my camera , so I have them going into a Beringher UMC404HD with 3.5 mm TRS to 1/4" TRS adapters. Then I have an XLR cable going out of the L Main output and into the camera, but I am getting no modulation into the audio interface. Other mics (like the mic in the BPHS1) work just fine.

                              Thank you for your inquiry. You will need the proper 1/4 TRS to XLR adapter. If tip is connected to pin 2 and ring is connected to pin 3 they will cancel each other out. I assume that is what is happening.

                            I bought this because of the recommendation from the Micro Center store but because this is the first time Ive ever bought such an item, it is required to have access to a jack amplifier or wireless transmitter. I present to large crowds so how do I know what kind of jack amplifier or wireless transmitter to purchase that is compatible with the ATR3350iS?

                              The ATR3350iS is designed to be connected to a DSL camera or smartphone connection with the included adapter.

                          • Q:

                            How long will the microphone last before replacing the battery? How many uninterrupted minutes of it being turned on?

                            Does it only turn on once plugged into a device? Or is it on when it's switched to on.

                              No, it cannot. We do make a wireless system that uses a microphone that has the same element (pick-up) inside however if you prefer the sound of the ATR3350iS. It is the PRO 88W-R35 VHF Wireless Microphone System.

                              The replacement windscreen is the AT8129 and the clip is the AT8435. You may contact your local Authorized Audio-Technica Dealer to purchase those.

                            It doesn't appear that the iPhone connection is compatible with an iPhone 7S. Do we need yet another adapter to make this lav work with this current model iPhone? If so, which one?
