Even though many of us have transitioned away from using our phones to shoot video, they can still be valuable devices for audio. Over the last couple of years, I’ve regularly used various phones ass backup audio devices with a Rode smartLav+.
But then Apple went and took the headphone jack away from iPhones. Of course, they included a lightning adapter, but if you’re going to carry adapters around, why not go big? That’s where the Rode SC6-L comes in, offering a pair of TRRS microphone sockets and a stereo headphone jack.
