Best Uses

    Comments about Shure Motiv MV88 iOS Digital Stereo Condenser Microphone:

    I was very impressed with this mic's possibilities and once I got it home, I quickly realized some major flaws. First though, let me say that the mic quality is astounding! I did some test recordings and it is basically a studio-quality condenser. The app lets you set the pickup pattern form 135-degree stereo to cardioid mono and everything in between. However, I am returning it because of some major design flaws. These things should have been thought out before releasing it and they seem like really easy things to fix. First, you cannot rotate the capsule, and it only bends in one direction, so you have to unplug it and turn it around if you want to point it away from you. The base also has a weird shape that blocks the headphone output if you put it on one side (at least for the iPhone 6. For iPads and iPhone 7, this is obviously not an issue). And worst of all, there is no true live monitoring. Yes, the app has a "live" monitoring option, but only for the app, and it's actually a monitor of the digitized input with a slight delay. So what's the point? For this kind of money, I expect basic features to be fully functional. Try again, Shure.

    Replaced the M88 with a MV51

    Comments about Shure Motiv MV88 iOS Digital Stereo Condenser Microphone:

    If your device is in a hard case the male adaptor is too short to make the connection. I have an Otter box on my phone and iPad and it would not reach. I ordered the MV51 as a replacement because it has a chord.

    Great 'plug & play' mic for audio & video recording. Proprietary app is easy to use for audio... enhances iPad internal video recording!
