Versatile audio quality on the go
Victor Stan, 19.03.2018
After doing days and nights of research for a good quality and affordable lavalier for light interviews and freelancer work, I finally decided to go with the Rode SmartLav+ as it seemed the best investment for long-term use and a good balance between price-quality-features.

This lavalier is designed primarily to use in conjunction with smartphones to record the audio off-camera in situations where it's not possible or feasible. And it does this brilliantly. The audio quality is on-par with more expensive Shure or Sennheiser lavaliers if placed and used correctly. I recommend using RecForgeII for recording your audio, it's available on both Android and iOS.

The lavalier comes with a pouch, velcro cable strap, foam pop shield and a clip. I am not a big fan of the clip design because it's difficult to loop the cable due to the narrow cable slot. I much prefer the Sennheiser free loop system. Also a bit disappointed that the Rode lav is not compatible with other clip systems due to its small size. I have a few other clips mainly from Sennheiser and none of them work. This means you have to get creative when it comes to placing the lav in certain conditions.

Also I think the cable is a bit short, if it was 150cm it would have been perfect. I tried to use it on a laptop during a video call and it pretty awkward to have it routed under my shirt and into the laptop sitting on the desk.

Overall I'm happy with the purchase and can recommend this to anyone looking for a great lav at a decent price.

Oh and make sure to check out the windshield and cable adapter if you plan to shoot outside or use it with a non-smartphone device.

This is a great all round Lav mic
TillHavis, 22.05.2020
I purchased the Rode Smart Lav+ so I could use it with an assortment of smart devices as well as traditional 3.5mm TRS inputs via the Rode SC3. This is a great all round lab that will get you out of an audio pickle. The It won't match a top brand lav, then again it is not priced the same. However for 80-90% of everyday recording situations it works fine.

A big step up
Andrew935, 17.01.2015
I bought the original SmartLav and was unhappy with the self noise.
It seems that Rode listened to their customers and came out with this.
For this price range, you simply cannot get better. Yes you need a smart phone to operate this Lav mic but surely everyone has one now don't they?

I regularly produce videos and podcasts and this had made getting audio into my productions very simple.

The app is smooth and the audio quality is superb. I edit a little bit in post (low cut roll off) but apart from that, this SmartLav+ does everything you need it to at a budget that everyone can afford.
