Chuck Fadely talks to Sennheiser about their latest iPhone mic, developed in collaboration with Apogee. This reporter microphone is based on one of Sennheiser’s dynamic microphones with a full metal body and is designed for outdoor use. The microphone is resistant to wind and the EMI emitted by mobile phones.
The converter and all the electronics are built into the body of the mic, allowing it to plug directly into the lightning port of the iPhone – the 7ft cable allows plenty of room to get the user in the shot. The device is compatible with apps like Filmic Pro or with Apogee’s own audio app. The HandMic digital will be available later this year. The price is still to be confirmed.
