The Tascam iM2X - X/Y Stereo Condenser Microphone Attachment for iOS Devices connects to morph your iPad, iPhone or iPod into a high-quality digital recorder. The iM2X records at 16-bit/44.1kHz (CD quality) resolution and handles up to 125dB sound pressure levels. The free Linear PCM Recorder App, available on the iTunes App Store, provides optimized functionality.

The X/Y positioning of the two condenser microphones on the iM2x makes it ideal for single-source recordings. The same microphones are used in Tascam's Portable Digital Recorders, DR-07MKII and DR-40. They even rotate up to 180° to perfect their angling to the source.

The Tascam iM2X weighs just over 1 ounce, adding almost no mass at all to your iOS device. It has an onboard USB Mini type B port, allowing you to charge your device during operation despite the docking connector being in use.

Wide iOS Support
Supports the iPhone 4S, iPhone 4, iPad, iPad 2, iPad (3rd gen) and iPod touch (4th gen).
AKM Converter
The onboard AKM AK5357 converter encodes CD quality audio at 16-bit/44.1kHz. It achieves a 100dB signal-to-noise ratio (@3V, 48kHz) and a wide dynamic range. It also features an onboard analog limiter.
Mini USB Port
Even though the iM2X monopolizes your iOS device's docking connector, your battery doesn't have to drain. iM2X includes a Mini USB port that allows you to recharge while recording.

    Great Microphone for iPhone!

    • Lightweight

    Cons

      Best Uses

        Comments about Tascam iM2X - X/Y Stereo Condenser Microphone Attachment for iOS Devices:

        I use the TASCAM iM2X with my iPhone 4S w/iOS 5 and also using the video recording app "FiLMiC Classic".

        It provides clearer recording sound than the internal mic on the iPhone. Background noise is limited quite a bit, although the sound is lower when editing. The TASCAM iPhone app is not very functional, nor intuitive; however, you can use other apps to use the mic. It doesn't require charging since it uses the iPhone's power source and you can charge your iPhone with the a mini USB charger.

        I recommend this product because it yields great results at an affordable investment.

            Comments about Tascam iM2X - X/Y Stereo Condenser Microphone Attachment for iOS Devices:

            for me this microphone didn't work very well. I had to place this mic very very close to my mouth to hear anything! The app that's used for recording has horrible ratings, and for me it kept crashing! wish I could find something great to say, but I cant. I returned the im2x the very next day.

            I use this mic to record my voice during translation sessions. It performs very well - sound clarity and quality are great. I wish it had a compatible pop filter. I also wish it has a lightening connector since the iPhone 5 has been around for a while now.
