Rode SmartLav Plus


The smartLav+ is a broadcast-grade wearable microphone designed for use in a wide range of film, television and broadcast scenarios, or wherever broadcast quality audio is required in a discreet, portable format without the complication and expense of additional wireless equipment.

With the smartLav+ the user simply mounts the microphone on the talent, connects it to a smartphone or tablet headset jack and records via the RØDE Rec app for iOS, or any other audio app of their choice.

By employing a professional quality omni-directional condenser capsule the smartLav+ picks up sound equally from all around the microphone, allowing for versatility when mounting and ensuring a high degree of user-friendly operation.

A foam pop shield is supplied to minimise wind noise and vocal plosives (hard ‘b’, ‘t’ and ‘p’ sounds), as well as a durable mounting clip with in-built cable management. Its Kevlar® reinforced cable ensures that you never stretch or snap your microphone under normal usage conditions.

The smartLav+ is compatible with any audio app that accepts input from the headset connection, however it has been designed to pair perfectly with RØDE’s RØDE Rec app for Apple iOS devices. RØDE Rec turns the user’s iOS device into a fully-featured field recorder, with a wide range of equalisation presets to suit various recording situations, in addition to professional editing functions and the ability to publish to SoundCloud and Dropbox direct from the app.

FAQ's

How do I register for the RØDE extended warranty?


Registration for the extended warranty can be made by completing our online registration form.

Once registered you warranty will be extended to either 10 years, 5 years capped or lifetime, depending on your product.

What is the procedure for returning a faulty product?

Please view our FAQ to try and troubleshoot the issue. If you believe the microphone is at fault please contact our distributor in your country of residence for the correct procedure for returning your product. To find your nearest distributor please use our technical support finder here.

DO NOT send any product back to RØDE without first obtaining a unique RMA number from us.

Is my microphone covered by a service warranty?

RØDE microphones come with a 1 year manufacturers warranty, this can be upgraded to one of our free extended warranties by the registration of the microphone on our website. Please register your microphone using the WARRANTY tab above.

Our warranty covers faulty workmanship and faulty components. RØDE may either repair or replace the product at their sole discretion. The product must be returned to the service centre in the country that the product was purchased for service and repair.

Please note: the warranty does not cover normal wear and tear, nor the use of the product in heavily corrosive, polluted or extremely humid environments.

I want to buy a RØDE mic from overseas. Will the warranty be valid?

The warranty is only valid in the country of purchase so in the unlikely event that the mic were to fail it would need to be returned to the country of purchase for repair.

Alternatively, the mic can be sent to a local distributor but they may (at their discression) charge an admin fee for repairing a product that was not bought locally. As we offer a 10 year warranty this is always worth considering when adding up the initial cost of the mic.

 

Can I still get support for my legacy/discontinued product?

Yes, at RØDE we support our products for as long as possible, many years into their retirement. We understand that you will often have a "go to" mic that you simply cannot work without and we will do everything we can to assist with the repairs of these legacy products.

Spare parts are usually available so please contact your local service agent for assistance with these repairs.


What information should I include with a service/repair request?

The best way to request a service is to register your microphone for warranty and then request a service via the 'My Mics' page.

  1. Product range
  2. Serial number

Hi,

Unfortunately not as the connector is incompatible with the Filmmaker Kit.

Thanks,
