iPhone External Microphone Adapter Setup for Video

I’ve had several people ask what audio setup I use when cutting my videos using my iPhone. When I tell them I use an inexpensive setup to plug the mic straight in to the iPhone itself they want to know how.

(NOTE: Some use audio syncing and extra equipment but I wanted something simpler and easy)

Today I recorded a video to show you what I do:

iPhone External Microphone Adapter Setup for Video [VIDEO]

NOTE: I’ve linked to the equipment I’m using below and on my Youtube video. I also have a few extra links for mics that are cheaper than mine.

[00:28 of video] You need 4 pieces of equipment to make this work:

Apple iPhone (I’ve used this setup with an iPhone 6S Plus and the 8 Plus…which I use now)
Atolla Powered USB Hub
Apple Lightning to USB Camera Adapter
Audio Technica Audio-Technica AT2020USB+ Cardioid Condenser USB Microphone, Black (NOTE: You don’t need a mic this expensive)
Any basic gorilla-style tripod

Optional Microphone Options:

Blue Snowball Mic (good value)
Fifine Home Studio Mic
Neewer NW – 700 Mic

[01:25 of video] Here I show you how everything is set up (super easy).

[03:19 of video] As I noted above, I’m using an Audio Technica AT2020 USN Condenser Microphone but you don’t have to spend as much. There are some cheaper alternatives (that I will list below) that work well.

[04:20 of video] Here I show you the difference in sound between the external Audio Technica mic and the built in mic on the iPhone. It’s a big difference.

I want to also note that on part of the video (where I’m going through the demonstration) I’m actually using the Apple earbud mic and it sounds pretty damn good! So if you didn’t want to even go through this setup you would be fine using that. 🙂

There you go…a straight-forward setup that will improve your audio without having to use audio syncing and extra equipment. If you have any questions make sure to comment below.
