What external microphone setups work best when recording with the iOS and Android mobile app?

When recording with the Riverside app on your mobile device, we recommend using:

  • Wired headphones with a built-in microphone;
  • Wired headphones connected to a wireless Bluetooth microphone;
  • An external 3.5 mm wired mic connected with a TRRS splitter/adapter (iOS devices); or
  • A Bluetooth headset with a built-in microphone (like AirPods).
    Please note: Recording with a wired microphone is more reliable than with a wireless one.
IMPORTANT:
You can connect an external 3.5 mm microphone to your iOS device and the device's speakers will play the Studio's audio. The app will prompt you to switch between Speak mode and Listen mode to prevent echo.
