That was too easy

If you want to record video with your own voice-over, the sound is never good enough. I had some decent results with the Lumias but never with iPhone or a serious camera. They all assume that the sound in front of the camera is what you want to record. If you stand behind it, you are noise.

I tried to figure out how to use one of my Plantronics headsets, but apparently you cannot route this microphone into the camera app. Then I tried the Klipsch headset, a few of my UrbanEars, but none of them was good enough.

As it turns out, the solution is just too simple: the Apple earbuds that came with your iPhone are brilliant. Just plug them in and start recording. In case you did not know that, the plus button doubles as a camera button. There is your remote.

Do you already have any experience quality wise? E.g. recording during a loud live concert: Is the built in microphone better than the one in the earbuds as the built in is really good now in avoiding clipping?

No experience. I don't think the earbud would be better.
