For those married to the smartphone, Shure has a toy for you, the MV88+.
A stereo/figure 8 condenser microphone of petite size, the MV88+ is designed for smartphone use, providing an upgrade in audio performance. It features Lightning and 1/8-inch/3.5 mm connectors on the rear.
The MV88+ is available alone or in a video kit with a Manfrotto PIXI tripod, phone clamp, and mount, as well as iOS and USB-C cables.
Shure says that the free ShurePlus Motiv audio and video apps can control the MV88+’s pick-up patterns, as well as set gain and control the limiter, compression, EQ, and monitor mix. Price: $199 for the mic alone, or $249 with the video kit.
