This mic will easily work with Apple iPhones however if you want to use it with an  Android smartphone it may or may not work. I tried it on many smartphones that I had and it did not work. If you want to use the Antlion Audio ModMic 4 on a android smartphone you will need a Audio Y adapter that you will need to plug into the smartphone audio jack and then use the ModMic plugged into the microphone jack.

Using with Desktop / Laptop

If you want to use the Antlion Audio ModMic 4 with your desktop or laptop again it may or may not work. And if it does work and does record audio check if it is also recording buzz / hum noise.
