AVerMedia has a new solution for streamers and content creators that are in need of an affordable mic. Having your audio dialed in for social media is just as important as nailing the visual presentation. Some might argue it’s even the most critical factor to your content.
What’s in the box
AVerMedia has done a nice job in including everything you’ll need to get up and running with the Live Streamer MIC 133. Along with the unit itself, you’ll also get a Shock Mount, Metal Stand, Windscreen, Carrying Case and various 3.5mm cables to ensure compatibility. The added accessories bundled in make this a tremendous bargain for those looking to up their audio production game.
The mic itself is unidirectional in design and can easily fit in your pocket. Its compact factor makes it ideal for quick and easy setup when recording on the go. I thoroughly tested this unit out using my Samsung Galaxy Note 8.
As advertised, simply connecting this mic to your smartphone greatly enhances the audio clarity. It couldn’t be an easier or more streamlined process, which will make this an attractive option for many. This tiny mic packs a serious punch in isolating your voice and making it far more pronounced during recordings over the stock audio quality captured on the Samsung Note 8. The windscreen works as intended too, cutting out potential distortion and providing a solid recording when creating content outdoors.
Conclusion and Score
The AVerMedia Live Streamer MIC 133 is a slim, affordable and compact solution for YouTube and Podcast personalities. It offers great performance and clarity for an entry level mic that can easily be attached to your smartphone or video camera. It comes packaged with a nice selection of accessories to ensure maximum compatibility and efficiency straight out of the box. This is a great choice for beginners. The simplicity when used with a smartphone make it excellent for vlogging. It will without a doubt increase the quality of your content and it accomplishes this at a great price.
