Ideal for the Modern Content Creator
The XS Lav Mobile is an accessible and affordable tool for improving your content with pro-style audio. This is because the mic on your phone or DSLR/Mirrorless camera system captures more than just vocals, with loud exterior sounds such as traffic-noise drowning out your voice. The XS Lav Mobile utilises an omnidirectional polar pattern for enhance speech intelligibility. In short, this means that background noise is minimised and vocals become the key focus of your audio recording. Due to its compact, minimal design and plug-and-play functionality, setting up the XS Lav takes no time at all. You can easily clip the mic discreetly to your shirt collar, lapel, pocket, tie, or other item of clothing for a pro-level look and impressive sound quality.
USB-C vs Mobile (TRRS)
In short, a TRRS mic plugs directly into your device's 3.5mm headphone input, whilst the XS Lav USB-C connects via the USB-C input. A TRRS mic becomes troublesome as it disables your onboard speakers. This means that you cannot engage in two-way conversations/interviews/video conferences over this same device, or monitor your audio real-time via headphones. The USB-C connection leaves all of this alone and can be a really good option for business professionals, content creators, and anyone looking to record audio from video calls over Skype etc. However, this XS Lav Mobile would be preferable for those recording via mobile devices that do not have USB-C connectivity, such as iPhones, iPads, and more.

Can this be used for two-way conversations over Skype?
The Sennheiser XS Lav Mobile does not allow two-way conversations/interviews over video conferencing applications such as Skype. However, the Sennheiser XS Lav USB-C is great for two-way conversations, distanced interviews and conferences over Skype, Microsoft Teams, and more. This is because the USB-C connection allows your mobile device to still utilise its internal mic to output audio (or via headphones).
How does the USB-C connection differ to the Mobile (TRRS)?
The Mobile (TRRS) connection utilises your device's headphone input, which can become troublesome as it restricts real-time headphone monitoring and two-way conversations. This is because a TRRS mic disables your onboard speakers, where as a USB-C connection is entirely separate. However, a TRRS connection may be required if your device is not compatible with USB-C.
What forms of content creation is the Sennheiser XS Lav Mobile best suited to?
The Sennheiser XS Lav Mobile is great for vlogging on-the-go, content creation, broadcasting, and lectures/teaching.
Does it come with a carry pouch?
This device comes with a smart Sennheiser carry pouch for easy transportation.
