how to connect external microphone to iPhone 7

Video Marketing for Edutige: Use Follow Up Content to Keep People Engaged

Last week I posted a video showing how to connect an external microphone to an iPhone using the Apple Lightning to headphone adapter cable. This week, it’s a follow up to that video to provide more information about the different types of microphones customers can use with their iPhone 7 and the Apple Lightning to headphone adapter cable. I know that people aren’t overly please with having to use dongles with their iPhone 7 but until there’s a better solution, it’s a good idea to show people that they can still find accessories, such as external microphones, for their iPhone.

This extra content keeps customers engaged with your company and gives people more reason to stay on your website, which is always important.

In this video you’ll hear the Edutige EIM-003 omnidirectional external microphone with an ESL-006 lavalier adapter cable connected to an iPhone 6 using the Apple Lightning to headphone adapter cable that comes with the iPhone 7. This is a great solution for anyone that needs a high quality lapel microphone that is compatible with the iPhone 7 and that is a simple plug-and-play.

In last week’s video, I tested the EIM-008 unidirectional microphone and as you may notice, I filmed both videos on the same day, back-to-back. The thing I want to point out is how in this video, the EIM-003 picks up a bit of the rain hitting the windows. But when you listen to the EIM-008 video, you don’t notice the rain. That’s the difference between the omnidirectional microphones we have and the unidirectional ones.

Anyway, if you have any questions about which microphone to choose, let me know. At least if you’re an iPhone 7 owner, you now know you can easily connect an external microphone for making videos, such as vlogs, or recording audio using the Apple Lightning to headphone adapter cable and an Edutige EIM series microphone.

Video Content Marketing for Edutige - How To Connect an External Microphone to iPhone 7

A big part of content marketing is helping your customers discover solutions to problems or issues they are having. With the new iPhone 7 and 7 Plus, the pain point for customers is not being able to connect an external microphone in order to make videos, to vlog or to record audio for things such as bird watching. And even though Apple released a Lightning port to 3.5mm headphone adapter, it was relatively unknown as to whether or not the adapter would work with external microphones. So to help, I put together a video demonstrating how to connect an Edutige external microphone to an iPhone using the new Apple Lightning to 3.5mm adapter cable. The cable works perfectly and offers a simple solution for Edutige customers so they don’t have to worry that their microphones won’t work with the iPhone 7.

This is the power of video content marketing. You can quickly demonstrate a solution to an immediate problem that your customers have, which makes them happy and earns your company trust and credibility.

If you have an iPhone 7 and you want to connect an external microphone, your only choice is to use the Apple Lighting to 3.5mm adapter dongle thingy. So I wanted to find out if our Edutige external microphones are compatible with the Apple Lighting to 3.5mm dongle. Long story short… YEP, all of the EIM series Edutige external microphones work flawlessly with the Lightning port on either the iPhone 7, iPhone 6s, iPhone 6, iPhone 5s or iPhone 5.

The video shows a test of an EIM-008 external microphone connected to an iPhone 6 via the Lightning port, but other people have tested the Edutige microphones with the iPhone 7 and other iPhones with the Lightning port and everything works great.

One thing to be aware of is to connect the microphone to the Lightning to 3.5mm dongle and then connect the dongle to the iPhone’s Lightning port. If you don’t, the iPhone will use the built in microphone instead of the external microphone. Don’t say I didn’t warn you.

The cool thing is that if you are vlogging, making videos for your business or recording audio with your iPhone 7, you can now connect a 3.5mm external microphone using the Apple Lightning to 3.5mm adapter. All is good.
