I'd like to purchase an iRig Pre XLR microphone interface for recording pre-production ideas out in the field.

I'm wondering if anyone has tried this on a Huawei P8 Lite 2017?

I can see that it's compatible with Android, but would be good to know of any first hand experience with this particular phone model and the iRig hardware.

  • The iRig uses a TRRS connection which means it works like any regular headset included with a phone. What are you worried about? Quality? Mar 7, 2018 at 6:39
  • @Timinycricket I did the research on TRRS connections and they're wired differently depending on manufacturer. It should be compliant with the CTIA/AHJ wiring standard, the details of which I can't find on the Huawei website. Quality is not such a concern, since it's only £30-ish I'm not expecting miracles, just less distortion and more bass than a typical mobile mic. Mar 7, 2018 at 10:43
  • This says that the phones are generally CTIA/AHJ so I'd guess if not specified that's what it is consumer.huawei.com/uk/support/how-to/newbie-guide/… Mar 7, 2018 at 18:53
