Using Karaoke Microphone on your iPhone!

I guess its no secret that I'm always relying on the mic on my earphones to sing on singing application. However, I recently discovered that we do have some spare microphone lying around that we hardly use.




So I did some research online and discovered that its possible to use them with my iPhone and sing with them! There are a few ways to do this, the more expensive way (by getting a cable that connect the mic straight to your phone) or cheaper way by using adapter.

It's obvious which way I chose, right?

Anyway, here is what you need:

1) Microphone and XLR Cable (obviously) - $0.
If you already have a microphone, you probably have these already.



 2) XLR to Mono 3.5mm TRS - $1.

I'm no expert with these audio jacks and their segments. However, I realised that only those with one line will work. 
3) An audio split that works with iPhone. - $2.



Note that the number of lines should be as the photo. (3 lines) And you should get one that work with iPhone!


The audio split will ha…

I've mentioned in my previous post that the Remax RM-610D and Plextone X53M are very "gift-able"; and the 1More 1M301 win those 2 by a whole body length in terms of packaging and presentation! I especially love the colour combination of black/dark grey and red, great contrast and very eye catching!

I won't go into all the details, but here is everything included in the package. You'll probably be thinking, "How the hell did they packed so much in such a small box?"... At least I did.


Basically, other than the earphone, you get a clipper, 3 sets of replacement eartips (XS, S, L), a 1More bear sticker, a earphone pouch and a very nice container for the earphones.

 

The earphone itself... well feels pretty plain when compared to the packaging, I was little disappointed actually. I guess, it just looks better in the promotion posters and it also lacks character and uniqueness, even though I like the combination cable (braided and TPE). I do love the Mic/Volume controller though, it looks very stylish and is also very comfortable and responsive. It is also surprisingly light.

I've been using this pair for a few days now, I must say, I really love how it sounds. I love the overall sound of this pair than the others I've reviewed. I guess it could be the very good sounding and clear midrange which made the vocals forward and very appealing. Bass is boomy and I can "feel" it although there seems to be something lacking in the low. High is comfortable to hear.

Without wasting time, I'll go to the Pros and Cons.

Pros:

- Accessories. Pouch, cable click, 1More sticker and 3 replacement eartips (XS, S, L)

- Stylish Packaging Design that is full of surprise

- Fit. Very comfortable and stay in my ears.

- Noise cancellation is pretty good.

- Mids is clear, smooth and sweet. Vocals are such good enjoyment.

- Remote Controller works well with iPhone (skip, pause, play songs, answer/end calls, volume control)

- Remote buttons are easy to press. (not too stiff or loose)


Cons:

- Earphone design can be a little better, although its not ugly or what.

- Low can be better.

- I actually don't like the cable clip

- Microphone is a little soft when singing on some app.


Overall Score: 4/5.
Mic score (for singing app): 3/5.


The 1More 1M301 is my favourite pair so far (well, excluding the Sennheiser one, which I try to hypnotise myself that I've never own it). I really like how the vocals/mid sound on it.
