SK from AudioTechnica talks microphones
With an increasing number of broadcasters and reporters now using smartphones for recording, another interesting product from AudioTechnica is the ATR3350iS lapel mic that can be used with a smartphone. Another option for smartphone mics is the AT9913iS, which is a shotgun mic that plugs into your smartphone.
One of the drawbacks of some bluetooth or wireless mics is that, due to the processing and wifi lag, sometimes the audio gets out of sync with the interviewee’s lips, so a wired mic (with a long enough cable) can be a useful tool to have in your location recording toolkit.
