    External / remote microphone for Nexus One?

    I am considering using my Nexus One to do some documentary style video but I'd like to bring better audio into the experience.

    I thought about using USB, Bluetooth and other things but I understand that the Camera app does not take audio input from bluetooth. Does it take audio input from the headset port?

    USB audio *into* the phone does not yet seem to be an option, either.

    I've been wondering what my options could be.

    I did some searching for microphones with 1/8" connectors. A question that comes to mind is - does the Nexus One have a stereo headset input or is it limited to mono?

    I found several intriguing and reasonably priced products. Does anyone know if any of these are likely to work?

    Olympus ME 52W

    Sony ECM-DS30P

    Sony ECM 719

    Audio Technica ATR 35S <--has a nice long cord & wind screen

    Sony ECM T6

    Audio-Technica ATR 25

    Sony ECM CS10

    Thanks for reading. I hope someone can provide some definitive feed back on the questions I asked.

    I'd be VERY surprised if the headset output could also be used as an input. Usually, they are one or the other.

    It is, however, possible you could write a driver to use the USB input jack to read a microphone input; but, again, I doubt the phone can do that out of the box. Maybe? I dunno much about Linux.

    The headset does have a mic input in it (the headset that came with the phone has a mic), but its not stereo...

    Danger when you say it's not stereo are you talking about the nexus one or the OEM earphones cause I was pretty sure that the nexus one had stereo output so I just checked and ya I get stereo output.

    Adaptor

    There are several adaptors than may work. Search Google with keywords: TRRS, splitter & adapter. Two items that could work if you are using a microphone with an XLR plug are available here and here. Both are advertised as iPhone XLR micrphone and 1/8 inch headphone adapter - 3.5mm TRRS Male to 3.5mm Headphone Jack and 3-pin XLR Microphone Jack, and while it is targeted at iPhones it should work with any mobile that uses a TRRS 3.5mm socket. Not used it myself but thought I'd pass on the info I've so far managed to glean while researching this.
