    Did not work with my iPhone 6

    1

    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.

    Great entry-level Lavalier mic

    4

    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.

    Close, but no cigar

    I bought several of these to use on a documentary film shoot and had to replace them all at the last minute with cheapo alternatives from Maplin because it turns out these cannot be plugged into a standard audio mixer as the stereo mini jacks are designed only for use with direct camera or WAV recorder inputs. With decent preamps I reckon the ATR3350 would sound quite good, alas the fundamental design flaws prevent them from being used this way, whereas the Prosound lav mics are both cheaper, more versatile and far more reliable in the same situation.

    Audio level too low

    2

    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.

    This is a joke

    I bought this thing to use with camcorders/dslr/phones, etc. can't seem to get any sound with any volume if any at all. so unpredictable, it was a waste of money

    It's impossible to know if it's working or not.

    2

    There's no way to know if it's working or not. There is no On/Off light. The battery is a difficult one to replace. I had all sort of trouble to get this to work with a Zoom H4n or a DSLR. Don't buy this.

    Great Lav mic for low budget projects

    4

    This product is okay for low budget, use it mainly indoors, with a good foam on it then the sound is acceptable. Battery is not an issue despite the fact that there is no light but one battery can work for 20hrs . I have used this lav mic together with rode smartlav+ in an interview and i was able to get good results.

    It only works the first time of use. Worst quality. A friend bought it and happens the same.

    Limited capabilities

    3

    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).

    Poor Audio = Unusable

    1

    Poor sound from day 1. Low audio. Yes, the battery was fresh. I wore it on my collar and I do not speak softly. But the audio recording is far short of the standard range I have gotten using either my iPhone or iPhone headphones. It was low enough that I could not distinguish whether it was muffled as well. Also, why no battery indicator? How are you supposed to know the battery is low or dead? Leave it up to chance? I would have paid 50% more for good audio and a low battery indicator. Great promise, poor delivery.

  • Q & A

    Can I use SR44 batteries with it? I've been using LR44, but my office provided the SR44s, so I'm wondering if I can use those instead. How long do you estimate the different type of batteries last?

    Ioana

    Yes you may. You may find helpful information here: https://blog.audio-technica.com/audio-solutions-question-of-the-week-how-do-i-install-the-battery-in-the-atr3350is-lav-microphone/

    I am trying to shoot video on my Nikon D5100 DSLR and use an ATR3350 for external mic but the sound is only recording the left channel. Every where I read, it says it is a dual mono and supposed to do both left and right channels. Is that for all the ATR3350's or just newer ones? How can I get mine to work? Do I need some sort of adapter? Thanks very much for your help.

    You may connect the ATR3350 microphone to a MIC level stereo or mono input.

    can i use it with my gopro session 5?

    You may plug the microphone into a MIC level Stereo input

    Hi, I bought 3 ATR3350 microphones for an interview project. I want to plug in the microphone to my Windows 10 computer. But it clearly does not work. What do I do wrong? I and my collegues need to start using them urgently! Microphone is new and thus has a new battery. It is ON. I have tried selecting both "microphone" and "line" entry when my laptop asks me to choose which entry it is that I put in the mini-jack entry.

First question; How are you connecting (3) 3.5mm connections to the computer? Second question; Are you plugging into a MIC level input, a LINE level input, or a communications port?

    ATUS_Specialist3

    Is the output line-level or balanced?

    Neither. The signal is a dual-mono MIC level.

    Is the output line level or mic level?

    Andre

    The ATR3350 is MIC level.

    I am missing the mic piece. I have all the other parts just need the little end that you speak into. Is it possible to just get that part?
