Investing in some live stream gear can make your broadcasts look more polished and professional. I use most of these, while others are items that are on my list of future purchases.
The smartLav will produce better quality sound than your smartphone mic alone or the mic on your earbuds. Plug it into your smartphone and clip the mic onto your clothing. Buy from Amazon.
Movo PM10 Deluxe Lavalier Lapel Clip-on Omnidirectional Microphone
This is a less expensive option than the Rode. Buy from Amazon.
(I have not used this mic but I have heard people say they like it.)
MXL Mics MM130 Handheld Microphone for Smartphones and Tablets
If you’re going to be doing interviews and want to hand your guest the mic, this one is excellent. I use it when I’m live streaming from events, and it does a great job of picking up the person’s voice and not much of the background noise. Buy from Amazon.
Blue Yeti USB Microphone
This is a professional mic that plugs into your computer. Buy from Amazon. I have this one and love it! The sound is great!!
Square Jellyfish Spring Tripod Mount for Smart Phones
If you have a tripod without an attachment to hold your phone, use the Square Jellyfish. It can be mounted quickly to any tripod with a universal screw mount, or it can be mounted to the Square Jellyfish Pocket Tripod. Buy from Amazon.
Photography Photo Portrait Studio Lighting Kit
Good lighting is essential to your broadcasts. These will require some floor space, but will make your broadcasts look much better. Buy from Amazon.

Make sure you have a battery charger when you’re out and about! This one has two USB ports so you can charge two devices at once. Buy from Amazon.
