Sennheiser India has officially launched the Memory Mic, a wireless solution for audio recording on your smartphone, with compatibility for both, Android and iOS devices. The best part about this microphone is that it is wireless and so, you can keep it connected with your phone wirelessly and not have to worry about any cables.
The Memory Mic can be connected to the smartphone via the Sennheiser Memory Mic App and that can be downloaded free of charge, and then you can set the sensitivity of the microphone at three levels, where the altering of sensitivity will help the microphone to adapt to your speaking style.
Besides easy one-touch synchronization of audio and video, the Memory Mic offers you the benefit of an audio mixer in the app and convenient recharging via USB. Even better, you don’t have to worry about getting out of range: Once the mic has been synced, you can record at any distance from the smartphone. When recording with the Memory Mic, the integrated microphone of the smartphone will also be active and pick up ambient sound, and once the video has been recorded, the audio mixer can be used in the Memory Mic App and a desired balance between the ambient sound and audio captured can be set.
The Sennheiser Memory Mic is 30 grams in weight, replacing the heavier microphone options the current market has. A single charge of this microphone can give up to four hours of recording, and an hour of charging of it through the MicroUSB port can charge it up to 70%. The microphone has an omni-directional pickup pattern.
