Five factors to consider when choosing a microphone

TikTok microphone is of great help. So how to find one that is suitable for your requirements?

Type

First of all, the selection of microphone type matters. And it depends on how you plan your video.

  • Shotgun mic: Mini shotgun microphone can be directly plug into cell phone. It captures audio from the target direction and won’t be shot by your camera lenses.
  • Handheld mic: It comes in the typical microphone looking but is really small. You can point it to anyone or anything you want to record and add more fun and interaction to videos.
  • Lavalier mic: There are two types, wired and wireless. In general, wireless one is recommended since you can move without the restriction of cable. It is suitable for movable recording.

Polar pattern

The environment plays an important part in selecting what polar pattern to use. For example, if you are in relatively quiet surroundings and feel like capturing many sounds you like, an omnidirectional mini microphone can work perfectly. However, if you want to capture target sound in noisy environment, directional microphone is suitable for you since it can record audio from where it is pointed and block ambient sounds from other directions.

Connection

This helps you confirm the mic can work on your phone. TikTok microphone features different connectors to fit specific mobile phone. For example, microphone with TRRS goes for mobile phones that own earphone jack. Just have a look at the model of your phone and choose an appropriate one.

Power requirement

There are two ways to make power supply. If your shooting can be finished soon, the device-powered microphone is good. If you want to have longer recording, then you can choose a battery operated microphone since it doesn’t consume the power of your phone.

Cost

Before searching for your ideal microphone, think about the budget you would like to spend on the mic and bear it in mind. This can also help you exclude some that you don’t need.
