However, there's a HUGE problem with it- it prevents the connection of an external power supply or battery to the phone, so your recording time will be limited to the available charge on your phone. If you're trying to use Facebook Live or other livestreaming Apps, which use a lot of phone power, your battery will die before the concert or event ends!
I used it to record a concert last weekend, and I started getting Low Battery warnings on the phone after about 1 hour, so I had to unplug the MV88 and plug in a battery instead, so the end of the concert was recorded in mono (and with lots of crowd noise that the MV88 had eliminated).
It seems that this would be relatively easy for Shure to fix- either by adding a tiny jack for power on the microphone body, or by offering a Lightning extender adapter with an external power input.
I'm torn on whether to keep this- on one hand, the MV88 recording was far better than with the internal iPhone microphone; on the other hand, I had to constantly watch the phone so I wouldn't have the phone die in the middle of the Live session, which would have been catastrophic!
The Shure MV88 has multiple presets which allow for specific gain and stereo widths for different situations. The device also allows the user to choose from 4 different polar patterns which determine how the mic captures sound around it. This unit comes with the microphone, a windscreen, and a case. We go over all of the items that come with the device and explain how they should be used in the video review.
I recommend this device to anyone who is looking to record video using an iOS device. It definitely provides you with improved audio over that of the internal microphone on your iOS device.
