The MV5 Digital Condenser Microphone comes with Lightning and USB cables, allowing you to use it with a wide variety of devices. That makes it a good option to use on-the-go as you record with a tablet or mobile phone, too.

This microphone is Apple MFi-certified and comes with a Lightning cable so you can connect it directly into Apple devices like an iPhone or iPad. It also comes with a USB-A cable that allows it to connect to computers, laptops, and Android devices, though you'd need some sort of adapter to plug it into most Android phones and tablets, such as this USB-C to USB-A adapter (opens in new tab). There are some more affordable options at Amazon too.

Featuring three DSP preset modes (Vocals, Flat, and Instrument), it also has the capability to automatically apply gain, EQ, compression, and limiting. There's a built-in headphone output that allows for real-time monitoring, and its stand is made of anodized aluminum and also detachable. Over 125 customers at Amazon reviewed this microphone resulting in a rating of 4.3 out of 5 stars (opens in new tab).
