Amazon is now offering its AmazonBasics Condenser Microphone for Smartphones at $16.61. Shipping is free for Prime members or in orders over $25. Regularly $30 or more at Amazon, this is a new all-time low and the best price we can find. Perfect for getting even better audio out of your smartphone videos, this is an electret condenser mic with a unidirectional polar pattern to focus on the audio directly in front of your camera while (mostly) ignoring everything else. It ships with a 1-year warranty. Rated 4+ stars from over 80% of the Amazon reviewers. More details below.
