These microphones can be used with your mobile, camera and even PC

Improve audio capture

When you start creating video content, whether for a YouTube channel or even for broadcasting on Twitch, your smartphone’s camera is sufficient in most situations. It is true that you will not have the same possibilities offered by a camera with interchangeable lenses, but in some cases due to quality issues it will not be. Because devices like the iPhone, Galaxy S21 and many other Android models offer very good video performance. The only thing you have to control is a little lighting and voila.

Of course A great image quality is useless if the sound is poor afterwards. So betting on a microphone for your smartphone is always a great idea. But if you want that investment to compensate you a little more, why not look for one that is compatible with both your mobile phone and your camera and even your computer?

Yes, these types of audio capture devices already exist and in recent months they have become even more popular. To the point of seeing how many of the first brands are releasing their own versions. So that’s what we’re going to do, take the opportunity to show you the most versatile microphones that you can buy and use with any device you have.

Shotgun microphones compatible with smartphones, cameras and PC

We start with those that are for us the best cannon-type options. That is, microphones that are ideally designed to be placed on top of the camera to record the sound of the source in front of it. Even so, they can also be used on poles when the camera is far away or in these things, connected to a tripod or microphone arm if you want to use them during your streams on Twitch.

Rode Videomic NTG

East Rode Videomic NTG It is a microphone that we know well because we use it in our day to day. It is a cannon-type solution that has the particularity of offering 3.5mm audio connection and also USB CThe latter being the one that really gives the product versatility.

With the first you can connect through the included cable a reflex or mirrorless camera as well as mobile phones that retain this analog connection. Because the 3.5mm Jack connector is TRRS type. And you do not have to change it when it is going to be used in a camera that has a TRS as it includes a sensor that adapts the line input.

With the second, and here comes the most interesting of it, thanks to a simple cable from USB C to USB C, USB A or even Lightning (they are purchased separately) you can use this microphone with any phone regardless of whether it has or not 3.5mm Jack connection and even with computers and tablets like the iPad.

When it’s done like this, really the microphone becomes a mic plus USB audio interface which is the one that does all the communication work between the two. So, yes, it is one of the most versatile mics on the market.

And yes, it is also true that its price is somewhat high, but in the long run it compensates for every euro it costs. Because with it you have everything, a microphone for when you record with your camera, with your mobile, for voice-overs, to stream and to be able to monitor or listen to others by connecting headphones to it.

Deity V-Mic D3 Pro

Rode’s proposal somewhat paved the way for many other manufacturers. With this we do not say that Deity copies, but it is true that in the end there are products that serve to set trends or as a starting point for something that was already in the oven.

Be that as it may, the truth is that Deity has his own version of the Videomic NTG. It is the Deity V-Mic D3 Pro and it is a very interesting shotgun mic also for quality issues. Because in a matter of options it is practically identical.

For starters, this Deity V-Mic D3 It has two outputs: 3.5 mm Jack and USB C. Both allow analog and digital connection depending on the equipment with which the microphone is going to be used. For example, in cameras you would pull the audio cable and when using it with a smartphone or computer with the USB option.

Along with a wheel that also allows you to control the capture gain and thus avoid saturation, like the Rode model, it is a very versatile microphone that does not disappoint and will save you from having to make several investments in different microphones depending on what type of microphone. use you want to make of it.

Wireless microphones, total freedom

If shotgun microphones are interesting in a multitude of scenarios, nothing like the freedom offered by wireless solutions. In addition, in these cases, you could even combine these proposals to convert any microphone with an analog connection.

Rode Wireless Go II

Recently introduced, this second generation of Rode’s popular wireless microphone system included a second transmitter and inherited features seen in the Videomic NTG such as connectivity via USB C.

This new option of the Rode Wireless Go II It is very attractive, because the quality of the audio capture is already more than proven, but now it offers the possibility of using the microphone system with any device. From camera to mobile phone and computer can use it no need to fiddle with adapters or the like.

You will simply have to use the cable with 3.5 mm Jack connectors in devices that have analog input and USB C to the rest. And if you want to connect them to an iPhone, either the Apple Lightning adapter or the Rode SC-15 cable.

Why these microphones instead of other more classic (and inexpensive) solutions

We suppose that you will wonder why these three microphones or other similar ones that will gradually arrive on the market are more interesting than more common solutions such as the popular Videomic Pro or other models that with their respective adapters can also be used in phones, cameras and even computers.

Well the answer is there: you need additional adapters and sometimes even a USB interface. That makes you lose some versatility and speed if you find yourself in situations where for one reason or another you need to record with one of your devices, either video with audio or audio only.

If you are looking for a equipment as minimalist as possible and capable of adapting well to each type of situation, It is clear that these are more than valid solutions. Even so, you will have to assess what compensates you or not with respect to what you usually do. But being able to use these microphones to improve the recording with your smartphone, with your camera, to do live on Twitch or even a podcast no matter where you are and with the highest possible quality is priceless.
