Capture naturalistic stereo audio straight to your phone with the RODE i-XY Stereo Microphone, designed for iOS devices with a Lightning connector. With its X/Y stereo microphone arrangement, high-fidelity audio recording, and included accessories, the mic excels for picking up accurate stereo recordings on the go. Use it for concert recording, on-location filming, and more. A zippered case and a foam windscreen are included.

A Mobile X/Y Mic

At the heart of the i-XY is a matched pair of 0.5" cardioid condenser capsules, fixed in a perfect 90 degree 'near-coincident' alignment. This results in immersive and true-to-life stereo recordings, captured in incredibly high detail. The mic comes with a windshield and a zippered case.

Works Right Out of the Box

The mic automatically works with any Lightning equipped iOS device. You can purchase a 30-pin adapter separately for older devices.

Quality Components, Quality Sound

The mic provides 24-bit/48 kHz recording, which is perfect for broadcast editing and mixing. You'll note the metal casing for enhanced durability and electromagnetic interference immunity. A software-switchable 72 Hz high-pass filter allows for reduction of unwanted low frequency noise.

question

Looking to buy this for OnTheGo Podcast recordingDoes it pickup background noise? Lets say outdoors or in a closed car environment
Asked by: John
This microphone is designed for recording larger spaces, not focused close-miked vocals. For podcasting recording only one voice, and if you plan on recording with the microphone less than 4 feet or so from your mouth, I suggest getting a microphone more designed for that. This microphone is for recordings in rooms, nature, and other situations which require a stereo sonic image.

question

does it work with iphone 7?
Asked by: TA-CHUAN H.
Good question. Keep in mind that iPhone 6 is a bit thinner 6.9mm, while 6s and 7 are 7.1mm. Mine came with 3 adaptors 7.51mm, 7.12mm and 8.82, that I guess if for iPhone5. So if the 7.51m doesn't fit well on your iPhone 7, you can switch for the 8.82mm.
