Making iPhone a trillion times better
Earlier this month, AGBeat showcased 6 insanely innovative photojojo tools that transform your iPhone photography. Today, we would like to introduce you to one of our favorite tools that transform your iPhone videography – enter the iPhone Boom Mic.
Even the latest iPhone 4S is not famous for good sound quality, as the built-in mic is inferior, primarily because of size restrictions – it’s good enough for phone calls, but not much else. The iPhone Boom Mic is a simple iPhone accessorie that plugs into the jack at the top of an iphone and clips to the phone with a plastic screw and goes for only $40 with reduced price shipping through photojojo.
The accessory is small enough to carry in a purse or pocket, fits over most cases, and is strictly made for improving the sound quality when you take video (there is a video on the photojojo site that demonstrates sound with and without the Boom Mic that is extremely impressive).
The company says the Boom Mic is super lightweight, so it won’t throw off the balance of your phone as you record and offers directional settings to capture all of the sound coming from specific areas. The mic works through the LiveAction app, which also lets you upload your videos instantly. It is easy to see that the Boom Mic can even actually double as a stand for the iPhone as demonstrated via photo below, which would help with professional interviews.
The iPhone Boom Mic’s top features, according to photojojo:
- A boom mic for crisp, clear sound recordings on your iPhone
- 2 directional settings let you control the recording
- Small enough to always keep with you
- Attaches to your phone’s headphone jack
- Fits over your case
- For iPhone 4 and 4S
- 4 ¾” x ¾”
- Takes 1 AAA battery (included)
