MikMe Pocket + MikMe Lavalier Pro

We love our microphones here at How To Kill An Hour and we have tested yet another great microphone. Perfect for all you content creators our there.

We took a look at the Mikme pocket and it is a compact and powerful wireless audio recorder and transmitter. It connects to your smartphone and delivers studio grade audio quality. Now there’s no need for a separate receiver attached to your phone. Therefore removing bulk from your kit! There’s literally no need to connect cables, adapters or separate receivers. Life savers!

The Mikme pocket always saves a copy of your recording locally so you won’t need to worry about data loss, if there is a dropout in connection. Furthermore there is a Mini XLR connector. Therefore you can record audio any way you like. So you can use a handheld mic, clip on mics, line level signals and many more mics that use the Mini XLR connection!
