At IBC 2018, Sennheiser will show the wireless Memory Mic for smartphones – an absolute must-have for mobile journalists. The size and quantity of equipment that journalists and reporters require to create professional quality content has decreased considerably within just a few years. In many instances, the smartphone is now the tool of choice, offering a quick and simple way to capture documentary or commentary. The key drawback is the sound quality of the mobile phone’s built-in microphone – which more often than not, performs poorly and fails to satisfy professional broadcast requirements. Enter the innovative Memory Mic: The small, lightweight wireless microphone not only offers excellent, broadcast-quality sound but also works at any distance from the smartphone. The mic and the accompanying app for Android and Apple are available now.
The Memory Mic is available now and comes complete with a USB charging cable and a quick guide; the free Sennheiser app is available in the Apple App Store or from Google Play. For outdoor recordings in windy conditions, a windshield will soon be available.
Sound examples of the Memory Mic are available at https://youtu.be/kz5Izwmb7No (family), https://youtu.be/tQlUvs9Ek3w (food blogger), https://youtu.be/BCd90dznE9c (music).
