iRig Mic is a hand-held, quality condenser microphone for iPhone, iPod touch and iPad designed for all of your mobile sound needs. Now you can make professional audio and vocal recordings anywhere on your iOS device.

iRig Mic is ideal for the singer, vocalist, and songwriter on the move, but also perfect for recording speeches, instruments, performances, or other sound sources in the studio, on stage or in the field.

The iRig Mic features a highly unidirectional condenser-electret microphone capsule that provides quality recording in both close mic and long distance mic conditions, and provides real-time monitoring with its dual mini-jack connector design. A 3-level gain switch makes it instantly adjustable for any sound pressure condition&deash;from soft speaking to loud playing. Its familiar form is perfect for hand-held performance, plus it allows you to mount it on any mic stand leaving your device free for operating your favorite app. Its rugged metal body is road-ready for the mobile musician.

    Good PR not so good in real world

    By John magee

    from richmond

    Comments about IK Multimedia iRig Mic:

    I bought this mic to use with my iPad 4 but I never got a chance to fully test it because of one major issue - the connector plug. The connector plug is very poorly designed as it doesn't sit snugly against the iPad when plugged into the headphone jack. It is simply too cumbersonme and tends to pull out very easily. It is also very noisy. It would have been a whole lot better if the mic cable had two branches at the end of it - one with a single mini-jack to plug into the iPad and one with a female mini-jack for headphones. Then there is the noise issue - which is just flat-out discouraging. Despite all the glamourous advertising, I'm forced to admit this product is second rate.

    Low gain mic - too much noise and feedback

    By Cristian Caro

    from AZ

    Comments about IK Multimedia iRig Mic:

    I just bought this mic to use with my iPad and the Garageband. It didn't satisfied me. To much noise and feedback even with the right setup. I tried different volume settings, different instruments, distance to the mic and the noise and feedback still there. I read about this problem a lot in forums and through internet, but i decided to buy it anyway b/c the "promotional video" from IK Multimedia and youtube was really convincent (work well done!). No surprised with the IK app (you need to pay to upgrade it and make useful the app. I which Line6 would have a ipad mic in the market.
