Instamic is the smartest and smallest mic on earth, ready to record at the touch of a button.
With working prototypes of two versions, Instamic and Instamic PRO, we launched an Indiegogo campaign and were over 500% funded before the campaign was even halfway through! We’ve raised $300,153 so far and are still in pre-order mode.
We’re also working with two of biggest names in the industry (sorry, NDAs prevent us from saying who they actually are) to both refine our product and have it used in some of the biggest settings worldwide.
Videographers, musicians, and sound technicians alike all love Instamic – keep reading to find out why!
When you feel weighed down by equipment and aren’t able to capture life’s textures so often lost between the recorder and the scene, Instamic is the only audio solution.
Forget setting up transmitters, cables, or external recorders, and simply find your favorite sound source, place your Instamic, and start capturing with ease — even underwater!
Instamic is the easiest and fastest audio recording solution with professional quality, suitable for audio amateurs to the most advanced user with high requirements. Its versatility enables anyone to record sounds previously impossible to capture without expensive equipment and demanding requirements.

How We Stack Up
Instamic is off to a great start.
Our Indiegogo campaign was a huge success!
We have several high profile distributors interested in working with us (details available upon request).
Press mentions and reviews number in the hundreds from technology, lifestyle, and design magazines such as The Next Web, Gizmag, Provideo Coalition, Designboom, and TechCrunch.
We have two huge partnerships in the works — full details coming soon, but we can say that these companies contacted us, not the other way around (so yeah… we’re kind of a big deal).
Well-known videomakers and sound engineers also want to endorse Instamic as their favorite audio production device. Multiple important journalists, sound engineers and filmographers will be using Instamic on the job.
We’ve filed patents in the US and Europe covering our microphone configuration, algorithms, and enclosure form factor and assembly.
Our PCB and mould is ready for manufacturing. We are handling the development in Europe and have partnered with a big manufacturer in China who is ready to scale up.
Up next: we’ll be ready to ship in Q1 of 2016! After covering our Indiegogo backers, we expect to ship another 7K+ units, totaling 10,000 in the first half of 2016. We’ll continue selling Instamics exclusively on Indiegogo until the end of the year, but come 2016, we’ll relaunch our website for ecommerce and distribute our inventory evenly between our website and our retail distributors.
