The mount is designed to enable videographers, broadcasters and journalists to make high quality video productions with professional audio on their smartphones, courtesy of a built-in XLR mic preamp, wireless receiver support, steady hand grip and secure holder.

 

The unit features an integrated microphone preamp with phantom power that lets users record with high-quality external microphones via its XLR input, with the device providing 48V phantom power for high-end condenser mics via two AA batteries.

A built in gain control, headphone monitoring output and 1/8″ TRRS audio output lets users tweak the sound as required and the ergonomic can also hold most popular wireless microphone receivers. There’s also a standard tripod screw.

Smartphones with a screen size from 3.5″ to 6″ can be accommodated, and the iKlip A/V works with any smartphone or camera that accepts a 1/8″ TRRS (CTIA/AHJ wiring standard) audio input.
