Whether you’re an interview newbie or a seasoned pro, you’re surely already aware of how important it is to have the right equipment for the job. You might have even experienced every interviewer’s nightmare already: playing back a recording to find it contains muffled sound or, worse, no audio at all. If you’ve been spared, consider this a fair warning. And if you’ve been burned, here’s your chance to upgrade your goods.
Consider the your trusty recording companions. Rated 4.4 out of five stars on Amazon, these professional-quality mics are easy to set up and perfect for on-the-go use. From important and live streams to podcasts, enjoy peace of mind that your audio quality will be crisp and clear.
Simply plug the lav mic into your phone — it’s compatible with iPhone and Android devices — and you’re ready to start interviewing, no batteries or complicated wiring required. Perfect for a two-person interview, don’t miss the secondary mic, which allows you to record your interviewee’s audio. The lengthy cables (eight feet and 4.9 feet) ensure you and your interviewee can move around comfortably throughout your chat.
This gear is as professional as it gets, with two metal alligator lapel clips and a set of four foam windscreens to eliminate those disruptive pops of air. The dual mic kit even comes with a carrying case for easy transport and a sophisticated touch. And if you have had a bad recording experience in the past, use the 3.5mm audio jack to listen to the audio in real-time with headphones.
