2 This is basically a Sennheiser ME 2 lavalier (lapel clip) mic with a Lightning adapter on the other end, rather than a 3.5mm jack. That’s good because the ME 2 is a well-regarded mid-range mic. You can record audio directly into Apogee MetaRecorder on your iPhone, with gain and effects controls, or use it with Camera or most other apps. How you configure the mic in Apogee Maestro is saved in the hardware, so choices apply regardless of app. The mic does a great job of isolating your voice, and the wind shield is surprisingly effective.

There’s a premium for Lightning connectivity over the basic ME 2, but the ClipMic Digital is worth it – it’s a great little mic.
