Wingdwolf Anthe says:

I use the Boya lapel mic for Moto blogs and love it. I’ve also found the Takstar SCC-598 works great on my Nikon D5300 for my inside studio. I actually use my portrait photography studio gear to record my videos

Tommy J Moore Sr says:

Thanks as always for your up beat tips , Sounded Great

MaxOffcial Vlogging says:

Sean I Use Boya Microphone For my phone I got no issues everything so Good I Love #BOYA

SamTheMan says:

Is it only me or does the “budget mic” sound better than his original mic?

The Tired Dad Tech says:

I’m liking this product. It keeps the conversation more natural. You don’t have to keep moving a handheld mic back and forth…and that price!

CJamesPhoto says:

Pretty good, definitely something I need to invest in. thanks for sharing this! 🙂

Derrick Cleveland says:

Does the microphone run with software for the smartphone?

Mike Gosheron says:

They sound better than your handled microphone!

Kris Roley says:

Sean, you mentioned that this this will work with your smartphone, but I’m curious to know if it will work with the 3.5mm to lightning adapter?

Little Mike Fun says:

Hi, Sean…. You can delete this post after you reading if you want… I constantly check all your videos and video influences videos as well and I always try to get as much content from your videos as possible and apply your tips on my channel…. I dont have sponsers or anything like that… Plus I don’t have good material to shoot better quality videos or anything like that… So, since – for sure – you probably have old equipments that you don’t need anymore, I would really appreciate if you could donate it to me…. I know it sounds wierd to ask this over here but I hope you understand…. just asking for old equipment that you don’t need and you want donate…. in this way I can keep working to get more engagement with better quality videos, keep sticking with your tips and maybe on day I will get there… Thank in advance if you replay…. and if you could give me any personal insight I would appreciate as well…. YOU ARE THE BEST!

Great review! I tried the Purple Panda lav, but it was very (electrically) noisy and sounded awful. Great to see there’s more budget lav options!

Cool mic set up … but noticed a little noise with the two mic set up.


I record my busking music with the Boya boya m1 mic, it’s great.
