With regard to microphones in particular:

For smartphones (no exceptions & stay tuned for that blog that proves this), turn off the device and remove the battery if you're in a situation (such as a "sensitive meeting") where you absolutely want to eliminate any chance of eavesdropping.

Oobviously: Make sure the other party does the same.

CAVEAT: I know (of) a 24hr/always-on rootkit developed by a hacker who claims his exploit will perform whether your device is on or not.

The way Security pros would get around that is not to have anywhere near, or best: Not bring the device at all. Good luck!
