Top Customer Reviews
Clipped on my shirt, the pickup is good. I bought it to be a better alternative than the internal mic in my iPhone 5s for making YouTube videos. The ATR's sound quality is clear and true without the ambient noise or room echo I get from from my iPhone's internal mic at the same distance. I may have to boost the sound level a little in post edit, but that would probably be true for any mic. The 6 meter cable makes it very easy to use with my iPhone on a tripod capturing the video at a distance. I used the smart phone adapter to plug into the iPhone, and it works fine. The mic is quite small so it's almost not noticeable in my videos.
On the negative side, the windscreen does come off pretty easily, but that's not a problem for me, as I record my videos inside. In my tests, I doubt I'll need it for my videos. For outside use where a windscreen might be more important, the windscreen comes off too easily. One other negative is that the power on/off switch button on my unit wasn't attached very well. It fell off the first couple times I used the mic. A little superglue fixed it, but I hadn't expected such a repair being required.
If you're looking for absolute top-of-the-line audiophile sound quality or heavy duty design for tons of use, spend some money to get it. But I intend to use this microphone for my YouTube channel videos for my own voice coaching business. Its sound quality is just fine, even for demonstrating nuances of vocal production. And I'm hoping that it will stand up mechanically to my level of use.
A note to Android users:
Using an external mic on video recording doesn't work with the standard video app. The app the worked for me was "Audio and Video Recorder" by "Rana Krishna Paul." But, the app only records using the main camera and not the front facing camera, so you can't see yourself while recording. The thing is the app records the videos to a "3gp" file format. If you want to edit or trim the video (I use VidTrim, which is the simplest to use, then you'll simply have to rename it to an MP4 (no conversion necessary).
However, I contacted Audio Technica via their website and they sent me a new "stronger" clip immediately. The service was excellent.
I can't quite tell if the clip is any different, but I suspect there was a bad batch of plastic clips and therefore they were breaking for people.
One thing I did that was different with the new clip: instead of snapping the mic in as the instructions say, I slipped the mic in from the top. This allows the plastic clip to slowly expland to the mic rather than abruptly over-expand. This worked and the new clip didn't break. I haven't tried the snapping in method with the new clip, so I can't confirm that the clip is any different. But since I only have one clip, I'm going to stick to the "slip in" method, and that's what I recommend to anyone who buys this.
Other than the clip issue, the mic is quite good -- not as good as my Polsen -- but good enough to be used as a video mic for basic interviews, and the iPhone recording adapter itself is worth the cost of the whole thing.
