REVIEW – I occasionally record videos on my smartphone, but one of the annoying things is that the microphone doesn’t work well for some outdoor conditions, mainly windy days. When the Sabinetek SmartMike+ review offer came along, I hoped it would solve that problem.
What is it?
The Sabinetek SmartMike+ is a Bluetooth 5.0 wireless microphone, and as the name implies, it has many smart features. It works with iOS and Android smartphones and is available in black and white.

Design and features
Featuring 44.1khz/48khz stereo sound pickup and transmission in real-time, the SmartMike+ outshines most conventional wireless Bluetooth microphones that only transmit mono voice quality at an 8khz/16khz rate (Apple AirPods). When using the SMike+ app, the interview mode also lets you record audio from the SmartMike+ and the phones’ internal mic at the same time. You can even pair a second SmartMike+ to record three people at the same time.

What I like
What I’d change
Sabinetek offers a 60-day 100% Money-Back Guarantee, but I don’t think you’ll need it because the SmartMike+ simply works as advertised. It’s a tiny, portable, wireless, and sounds excellent. It’s been a pleasure uncovering some of the great features in this device, something I wasn’t quite expecting from such a small microphone.
