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

would this be of any use for recording telephone interviews with an iphone 6, for instance, with phone in either regular mode or set to speaker phone mode?
Asked by: Anonymous
I have never tried to do that but my feeling is that it wouldn't work too well, certainly not with the phone in regular mode. In speaker mode, the mics would pic up some sound but it would be pretty poor quality, IMHO.You'd be better off getting an app that allows call recording, or using a plug-in mic on a cable (such as the micW) and pointing it at the speaker. Quality would still be poor, though.
