More about the Memory Mic
Sound plays an important role in videos: It instantly creates atmosphere and evokes emotions. Getting started with the Memory Mic is simple: Download the free Sennheiser video app from the Apple App Store or Google Play, sync the mic with the app via Bluetooth, attach the mic with its magnetic clip to the clothing of the person you want to film – and you're ready to go.
At just 30g, the Memory Mic is an ideal companion on day trips and holidays. It is reliable, robust and very forgiving when the distance and direction you talk from varies. The mic's operating time amounts to up to four hours, then it is simply recharged via the USB connector. After an hour, the battery has already reached 70% of its full capacity.
When recording with the Memory Mic, the integrated microphone of the smartphone will also be active and pick up ambient sound. The Memory Mic app allows you to select the perfect mix between the audio recorded by the Memory Mic and the standard sound recorded by the smartphone.
Via the app, you can also adjust the level of the microphone, which is very helpful for soft voices. As the Memory Mic is wireless, it does not occupy any input on the smartphone, therefore you can still employ additional accessories such as a gimbal if desired.
The Memory Mic comes complete with a USB charging cable and a quick guide. The free Memory Mic app is available in the Apple App Store or from Google Play.
