In Reply to: RE: Or Dayton Audio for $16.35 for IOS or Android? posted by Mel on March 08, 2017 at 11:25:27
I bought a Sonos Play Five Gen 2 when they first came out and it has room correction in it. I had to use an Ipad to do the correction part of it because Sonos stated in their directions that the Android mics were not consistent in quality to the point that they didn't offer it for Android. They also stated that they would continue testing and include the Android if the mics started testing better. That was before the seven came out so things may have changed by now.
Hence the need for an external mike. The question I'm raising if whether this inexpensive mike from Dayton audio will do the trick. Since the mike (and at least one Android app) have provision for calibration, I'm guessing Yes. But I would like to hear from someone who has used it.
Dayton Audio is reputable. If all you want is basic RTA and FFT-derived frequency response, I would think this is good enough, as long as you're using an app that can import a calibration file. I don't think I would trust this for more advanced use though, e.g. measuring loudspeaker distortion.
Do you use it with the "Audio Tool" Android app?
? No, I just wasn't thinking. You weren't talking about using the mic in the Android at all. I bought the kit at the link below about 3 months ago but haven't gotten around to using it much yet. It has very good reviews (22 and 5 star)
