Posted July 13, 2021 by Andrew Semicek in Tech


  • Plug and play, its that simple!
  • Excellent audio quality from the mic that rivals much more expensive ones that can be attached to an iPhone.
  • Hard carrying case makes traveling with it easy.
  • Mic can be moved up and down to give it the best accuracy deoending on how the phone is oriented.
  • Included widscreen is a huge plus vrto help retain audio quality as well.


  • No passthrough to allow charging of the iPhone while using the mic.
  • Lack of assocaited app can be frustating to set EQ levels for the mic.

In Summary

If you are looking for an excellent performing mic for your iPhone for doing things like podcasts, voice recordings, etc you can not go wrong with the MA5L. For under 50$ this is a must have accessory for anyone using their iPhone for audio recordings. I do wish that this had a passthrough port to allow charging for the phone while using the mic, but that is a small quibble compared to what you get for the price.
