YBLTV Video Review: iRig Mic

Rugged and Durable is the iRig Mic

Watch our video review above to learn more about IK Multimedia’s iRig Mic. The iRig Mic is the first handheld, quality condenser microphone for iPhone, iPod touch and iPad – must we not forget that it is also compatible with Android devices!

iRig Mic’s great apps for singers, songwriters and journalists – you name it – comes* with VocaLive FREE. which is the company’s new real time effects processor suite for the singer and vocalist. iRig Mic also comes with AmpliTube FREE  – perfect for guitar players and songwriters in addition to iRig Recorder FREE, an IK app for quick audio recording and processing.

Both close mic and long distance mic conditions are possible. The iRig Mic features a unidirectional condenser-electret microphone capsule. Real time monitoring is available with its dual mini-jack connector design. Anyone can easily mount on any mic stand.

There is a nice three level gain switch (for low, medium and high sound pressure sources) and the cable measures 2m/6.5 ft. which I find a perfect length for any recording.

One of the best features of the iRig Mic that we love shall we say (again) is that it supports Android smartphones and tablets and your favorite Android audio apps. Just be sure to click here for a list of compatible Android devices.
