Here is an affordable way to clean up your vlogs, song ideas, and podcasts as you film/record from your phone. The iRig MicCast 2 is one of the simplest ways to upgrade your mobile audio. It plugs directly into your device's 1/8" headset jack - either directly or by way of a breakout cable - which makes it compatible with most current, and last-gen devices across platforms. We at Sweetwater especially appreciate the MicCast's magnetic mount and switchable front/rear/omni pickup. If you're looking to improve your mobile recordings on the cheap, the IK Multimedia iRig MicCast 2 is a good place to start.
