How It Works

Plug the MV88 into any Lightning equipped iOS device and angle it so you always pick up detailed stereo sound from exactly where you need to. The ShurePlus™ MOTIV™ Video and Audio apps give you on-screen metering, integrated controls and the ability to customize the MV88 exactly how you want it. Where will you post first?

Why It's Better

Wins the popularity contest.

The MV88 is so packed with features that even those new to mobile recording are considering all the possibilities. What will you do?

The audio you’ve wanted.

Especially for mobile devices, sound has always taken a back seat to video. That just changed. Almost a century of audio excellence informs this plug-in mic that’s everything you’d expect from Shure.

Always the right direction.

Tilt, rotate or flip the MV88 up to 90° to get stereo clarity with amazing flexibility. Use the DSP preset modes to get going quickly, so you never miss a beat.

No excuses.

You’ll never miss with the real recording capability of the MV88. Small enough for your pocket and durable enough to take just about anything you can dish out. Anywhere, every time.

Easy, friendly control.
