I've been trying to connect an external mic to my S20 Ultra for sometime now and I always face a problem of constant static noise while recording.
I've tried the following:
- 2 different Usb-c to Aux dongles with DAC and an external 3.5 mm microphone designed for smartphones.
- Usb-c microphone for smartphones
In the three trials I get the same very loud static while recording.
I don't get the static when I use the usb-c headset that came with the phone though, so I don't think it's a port issue.
I have the s20 ultra and having nothing but problems with trying to use an external mic. I get similar white noise, but more like static, so when speaking it garbles the sound. I have tried 2 different usb c adapters to head phone jack, Including the Samsung brand. it happens very randomly, I can record a video and no problem it works fine. Then record another right after and thinking it's all good to only find out later is messed up the audio. So frustrating, I have tried 2 different mics, the rode micro and the rode wireless go and same issues with both. When I try these set ups on my S9 phone, no issue at all. I see this topic come up a lot and for some people ot works and others it does not. So I don't know, I have spoke with Samsung tech support and they could not help, they were supposed to get back to me with an answer but that was over a month ago. Samsung has really screwed this up in these new phones with not having a headphone jack. They could have at least tested these with a usb c adapter to for external mics before mass producing them. With most people using their phones as a video camera, the internal mics are terrible for recording a youtube video. This has really made me think about not getting a Samsung phone again.
I'm pretty sure it's not a dirt issue but thanks anyway
Very frustrating, specially when there are people with the same phone who are using an external mic without any issues.
I can't seem to understand where is the issue coming from.
Hi Mate, i am having that issue with S23 Ultra. I have a good mic with a 3.5mm adapter to the USB-C and the noise is contant. i plugged the mic into my computer 3.5mm and works perfect. How did you solve the problem? THanks
