Title: Internal or headset mic for metering
Post by: spinoxa on February 27, 2012, 08:54:09 AM
Hi there,

Can you please tell me whether the internal iPhone 4 mic or the headset mic is superior for sound metering, both in terms of frequency response and in terms of accurate volume reading? Are there significant differences between the two mics? Generally speaking, is one microphone significantly superior to the other, or are they quite similar in your opinion?

Many thanks for your help

Please check out details regarding the microphones and also the high-pass filters through which each passes in the following articles on our blog:
