6 Different iPhone 4S microphones compared

The best way to improve your video right off the bat is to improve your audio. This video compares 6 different microphone solutions you can hear them being used in an iPhone video.

The 6 different microphones I compare are:
1. iPhone 4S built-in mic
2. Audio Technica ATR-3350
3. Audio Technica ATR55
4. Zoom H1
5. Sony ECM-AW3
6. Sony UWP-V1

I’ll let you be the judge on the different mics. The price range is free (for the built-in mic) to around $500 for the high-end Sony UWP-V1. All the links above are affiliate links to Amazon where you can read and learn more about each mic. But I wanted to provide a video so you could HEAR the difference between all of them.

Hope this helps. Let me know your thoughts in the comments.

  1. Scott,
    Loved this video but I had a quick question.

    I have an iphone 4s and Im trying to find a mic in order to get
    better audio quality when I shoot my videos but I’m confused as to
    how exactly one of these above mics would hook up to my iphone 4s?

    Thanks and keep up the great work!

    I came across a great app today called ReadyMic. Information at http://www.readymic.com/ – I have no affiliation to this.

    I just installed it and used my new Vxi VoxStar UC Bluetooth microphone to record video with wireless input at a distance from the iPad. It worked great for me.

    Tell me what you think of it.
