Zoom iQ6 overview

  • 1Description

The iQ6 Stereo X/Y Microphone from Zoom turns your iOS device with Lightning connector into a field recorder for capturing the sounds of concerts, interviews, meetings, lectures and more, at up to 16-bit/48kHz resolution. The microphone uses the same two, high-quality, unidirectional condenser mics found in the popular H4n recorder, allowing your recordings to cover a wide area, while still capturing sound sources in the center with clarity and definition.

The X/Y microphones can be set at two different angles, 90 degrees for a tightly focused image, or 120 degrees for a more immersive wide-angle stereo. The input gain can be adjusted using the large, mic gain wheel on the front of the unit, while you monitor your levels using the 3-segment LED. The iQ6 also features a dedicated 3.5mm headphone jack, enabling direct monitoring during both recording and playback. The headphone output can also be used as a line out for making a backup recording if desired.

The iQ6 comes with a removable spacer that allows it to be used with most iPhone, iPad, and iPod cases. The mic is compatible with Zoom's free Handy Recorder app, which gives you the option to record as PCM or AAC files, and offers effects such as compression, EQ, and reverb. Additionally, it will work with Apple's Voice Memo app and GarageBand, as well as most apps that support input from an external microphone.

Zoom Handy Recorder App
Zoom's Handy Recorder app, available for free from the iTunes App Store, provides an assortment of tools for your iQ6 and iOS device. In addition to offering onscreen level metering, it enables you to set the iQ6 headphone volume, as well as adding an automatic recording function-handy for capturing the sound of meetings, speeches, and other situations. Choose linear PCM format for the highest quality sound or AAC format to conserve storage space, then apply compression, EQ and reverb effects to your recordings. Handy Recorder even allows you to email your files to friends and to upload them to SoundCloud for sharing with the world.

    Zoom iQ6 reviews

    iQ6 Stereo X/Y Microphone for iOS Devices with Lightning Connector is rated 3.2 out of 5 by 5.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Mic For the negative review saying that it doesn't pick up far sound as well: This configuration is designed more for recording direct sound, not so much for ambient noise, and the others (iq5,iq7) are more designed for picking up wider ranges of sounds. The iq7 is just a nicer version of the iq5 I think, and the iq6 is designed more for recording something specific, less for recording ambient noise. As a classical musician, this is the better option for me.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from High expectations but low performance For the price of the mic and also the reputation of the company, I was not satisfied with the product. I got the product because my professor was very soft spoken during lecture. I sat about 10 feet away from him but I had to crank the manual gain all the way up to 10 to get some reading. Upon hearing afterwards, it picked up lots of ambient noise and not much of his voice. Pros: In a quiet room setting, has a great recording capability. Recorded my guitar with it and sounded clear and crisp. Light and well built Windshield is not the best but great addition 90/120 degree for wider recording is helpful Cons: It was not focussing and picking up far sound as clear. I had to put high gain resulting in lots of ambient noise. Not too focus. No option to smaller degree (shotgun) zoom.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Mic The quality is great! I use it with GarageBand on my iPad to record. Easy to use, and portable. Hefty too.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Simply Worthless Accessory That I Returned Immediately I've used Zoom stand alone microphones and thought this mike plug in for my iPhone would provide the same quality, making my iPhone audio recordings even better. DEAD WRONG. There was no difference between the iPhone's own microphone and the Zoom mike. Save your money or look elsewhere. This Zoom accessory isn't worth a dime.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great device I really recommend this product for recording music.
