I have to give a presentation and would like to record my speak.
having the mobile phone in hthe pocket and using the voicerecorder seems like a simple soluiton,
quality needs just be ‘good enough’
a micre like that looks ok
so with some cable and a clip? to put it on the shirt
but which micros are compatible with the fairphone 2?
If you only want to record it for yourself, then I guess the internal mic should be sufficient. I have recorded some interviews with it, where I needed the audio only in addition to my notes (thus only for transliteration), and it was sufficient.
Have you already tested it this way?
btw: any mic with 3,5mm plug should be compatible.
When giving a talk, I have to move around a litte . Placing the mobile on a table give in this scenario no good sound. It works somehow, but …this is tested.
therefore my question
I need the hands free to point at the presentation, explaining, …
So yes, I want the phone in the pocket, a cable and the mic on the skirt.
would this work? https://www.dustinhome.se/product/5010743524/gopro-lavalier-microphone?ssel=false
I appreciate your enthusiasms to help, but if I would have shops here where I can go, test a mic, check the result, do you think I would not do it?
if you look at vendor lists, there are compatibility lists, but of course, the fairphone is on none, even if it would be compatible.
and exapmle of such a list is here. http://www.smartlav.com/list.php
there seem to be 2 connector standards, OMTP and CTIA, apple sony use one, some others the other, thats why a set for apple might not work on an android phone.
I also have a question about external microphones (in order to be able to Vlog). I bought a Boya external microphone: it didn’t work… Now, I bought a Walimex Pro Lavalier: it doesn’t work…
Any idea how to to make it work on a Fairphone?
I feel that not ANY external microfphone with 3,5 mm jack is compatible
Do you have some (in-ear) headphones which have 4 contacts on the plug (and therefore has a button and/or a microphone)? Plug it in and play some music.
The music should be played via the headphones. (Turn up the volume while playing music if not.)
The button should pause/resume the music.
The microphone (of the headphones) should work with the built-in audio recorder.
If not, your headphone jack is broken (or dirty). Ask support for a new top module in this case.
If that test worked, try your microphone with the built-in audio recorder.
I have one idea: Do those microphones need a special (recording) app to work? (That could be so if those microphones are powered via the headphone jack. Read the manual or ask the microphone manufacturer whether the microphone needs a special app.)
Turn the volume up to the maximum while the microphone is plugged in and the recording is running.
