Zoom Am7 Mid-Side Stereo Microphone for Android Devices with USB-C Connector

Record high-quality, Mid-Side stereo recordings straight to your Android device with the Zoom AM7, a microphone that plugs right into your Android phone thanks to its USB-C connector. With a naturalistic stereo depth of field, the mic is wonderfully suited to music-video recording, video-based podcasts, and more. The AM7 records broadcast-quality digital audio, and offers a stereo-width slider to adjust how "wide" you want the resultant recording to feel. The controls for width control and gain are easy to master. The mic is optimized Zoom Handy Recorder App, and also ships with a foam windscreen.

Capture Events Just as They Happen

M/S stereo is beloved in the pro world, for the technique results in a highly realistic recording, both in terms of width and depth. M/S recordings also "fold down" to mono without issue, and this makes them particularly attractive to people who demand mono-compatibility for their stereo recordings. The Am7 can also shoot in selfie mode, allowing you to be in the center of the action. With the AM7, you can rest assured that your audio will sound equally good, whether its heard on headphones or off a phone's speaker.

For Horizontal Video, Vertical Video, or Audio Only

Built with a rotating capsule design, the AM7 mic can align with your camera to capture audio while recording video, or to better suit an audio-only recording. It can also be used to record audio for horizontal or vertical video, delivering perfect left-to-right stereo orientation in the resultant recording. When recording audio without video, simply rotate the mic to the audio position, and point your phone like a mic to the sound you want to record.

Broadcast-Quality Sound

The AM7 records audio at broadcast-quality 48 kHz/16-bit. You'll have the ability to adjust the stereo width using a slider. The controls are easy to master: a simple gain knob and the aforementioned stereo-width control. Note the 3.5mm headphone jack as well; this output allows you to monitor audio through headphones while you record, and it can be used as a line out for recording an analog backup recording if desired.

Easy Controls & Monitoring

Adjust your input level, with a large front-facing MIC gain knob and LED level meters. Use the headphone jack for monitoring your audio before, during, and after recording.

Available Zoom Handy App

The mic is designed to work with Zoom's free Handy Recorder app. You'll be able to monitor audio without latency straight from the app. When it comes to preparing your recording for the outside world, you'll be able to perform fine editing functions with a waveform display, save your files in either linear PCM or AAC file formats, and apply effects such as compression, EQ, and reverb to further enhance the sound. Share your resulting files over email or post them to SoundCloud for the world to hear.
