The MOTIV mv88 digital stereo condenser microphone directly connects to any apple iPhone, iPod or iPad equipped with a lightning connector to capture high-quality recordings on the go. The mid-side microphone element is mounted to a unique 90-degree hinge with built-in rotation that allows for highly flexible microphone position, even in video applications. Five built-in DSP preset modes (speech, singing, flat, acoustic instrument, loud) can be accessed via the Shure plus MOTIV recording app, a free download from the apple app store. The MOTIV app also allows for real-time adjustments including microphone gain, stereo width, and high-quality 24-bit/48 kHz recording for optimal results in virtually any environment. Shure-tested, all-metal construction provides confident performance in any environment.

Product ExperienceI own it
Closest StoreDartmouth, Nova Scotia
Couldn't decide between this mic or the Zoom iQ7. Bought the latter and regretted it, upgraded to this one and immediately I was able to hear the difference in the sound quality. Definitely happy with the product. I wasn't too excited about paying $200 for it but in the end it was worth it.
