Microphone Review for Rode SmarLav+ and iRig Mic Lav + Joby GorillaPod Zoom

In this video, I am doing a microphone review of Rode SmartLav+ and iRig Mic Lav + bonus review of Joby GorillaPod Zoom.

I have been using the SmartLav+ for over a year and I just unboxed the iRig MicLav and the Joby GorillaPod Zoom and I was so excited to share them with you.

As a live streamer and a vlogger, the sound is of utmost importance, if not even more important than the video quality.

SmartLav+ PROs

  • It’s compact
  • Sound is very clear
  • Longevity tested, survived for a whole year of intense streaming.

SmartLav+ CONS:

  • It’s not cheap
  • The cushion is easy to get lost
  • It does not have a second plug for headphones or a second microphone, so it’s hard  to interview two people with it.
  • Its cable is short, which can be both a good and a bad thing, depending on the situation.

iRig Mic Lav PROs 

  • Sound is clear
  • Have a second plug for interviewing or headphones.
  • it comes with a nice container/box.
  • It’s cheaper than the Smart Lav+

iRig Mic Lav CONs 

  • The cable is longer so that could be a good or a bad thing.
  • It doesn’t have many reviews online so it needs some testing.
  • Less compact than the Smart Lav+
