Sennheiser ClipMic digital Review | For the iPeople

The Clip Mic Digital was created in conjunction with Apogee technology. Apogee delivers technology into this product that coverts the signal for the tiny microphone. Its sampling frequency is 96 kHz with a 24-bit resolution, which surpasses CD quality and most mobile recording technologies.

What’s included

  • ClipMic digital (Sennheiser ME 2 microphone)
  • Windscreen
  • Clip
  • Carrying pouch
  • Quick Start guide

Hardware

First thing I would suggest upon unboxing is to add the small wind screen to the head of the microphone, trust me its a must do. This minuscule wind screen reduces wind noise up to 20 dB and it makes a good difference to the audio quality especially when shooting outdoor. The clip of course has to be added too to work as a proper lavalier mic. The clip can attach to your shirt, I prefer to route the cable underneath your shirt unless you are interviewing someone in that case obviously you would be holding it on hand. That’s it connect the ClipMic’s lighting connector to your iPhone and you are good to go. I had always liked the Sennheiser ME 2 Lavalier microphone, its a classic product and ClipMic actually uses it. Being custom made for iPhone, it’s relieved of the 3.5mm jack and goes in for the lightning connector which makes this product non-compatible outside apple eco system. The cable is pretty long which works well for most use. The build quality is good too.

APP – Getting Connected

Before you start firing your recordings, you need to download the free MetaRecorder app by Apogee. Of course, it works with just about any iOS app and replaces the built-in microphone of your device once connected but the MetaRecorder app makes a difference. It’s custom build for iPhone and has tons of features to bring out the best of the audio and also easy to use. MetaRecorder App ApogeeHighlights of the Apogee app:
  • Mono or Stereo audio recording, WAV. or CAF format, up to 96kHz 24-bit resolution
  • Intuitive multi-Take recording and audition
  •  Master-Satellite Link of up to 4 iOS devices, all controlled from a single Master device
  • Integration with Apogee audio interfaces, Sennheiser ClipMic digital and MKE 2 digital
  • Metadata capture and export to Final Cut Pro XML format
  • Share via Dropbox, AirDrop, Email, Message and iTunes File Sharing
  • Offers Apple Watch App
  • Unlimited Single-device and Multi-Device recording in-app purchases available. For a limited time, unlock Single-device unlimited recording by connecting a compatible Apogee or Sennheiser interface
It also has Apple Watch remote control to start and end the recording which makes it really a breeze to use the mic plus multi-device synchronization. There are also extra bits like tweaking the sound of the clipMic, hiss reduction etc. Even though the Clip Mic Digital works seamlessly with iOS technology, you must still download an app to enable the microphone. Apogee Maestro and Apogee MetaRecorder are both free to download and they both instantly recognize the microphone.

Performance

I tried the mic in mix scenarios and the results were impressive. It’s easy to use and sound quality is great. The app integration is neat and user-friendly. The ClipMic is great for interviews on the go, vlogging. It’s compact and can be sneaked easily in your pockets.

Verdict

If you are tied up with an iPhone, the Sennheiser ClipMic digital is a great accompaniment for your audio recordings.]]>
