Zoom iQ6 Overview

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.

question

Would the headphone output produce lower quality sound? I'd like to use this for field work and also for recording podcasts while mixing several inputs (skype, music, etc).
Asked by: Jacob P.
No the headphone out will not produce a lower quality audio signal. In fact the 3.5mm headphone jack doubles as line out.

question

Can this be used stand-alone, without an iOS device? If so, what kind of power would need? I'm wondering if it can be powered externally, then plugged into a camcorder. (Or is there an equivalent Zoom product that doesn't need to be hacked to work with a camcorder?)
Asked by: Anonymous
The iQ6 from Zoom is an iOS only device. Unfortunately Zoom does not currently offer a product similar that works standalone. For a stereo recording option for a camcorder, I would recommend a more traditional camera mountable , battery powered mic. Senal offers a compact solution, the SMS-45. <a href= http://bhpho.to/1yN4UPN target= _blank >http://bhpho.to/1yN4UPN</a>

question

I need to point this mic at a subject while recording video on a phone. How is that done as it looks like it points toward the floor if one were to record video. Is there an adapter available? Or how can the mic be pointed at subject?
Asked by: Anonymous
I do not think it is possible, but I have not tried with a thunderbolt extender of male and female adapter. For this same reason, I went with another one by this company called iQ5 Zoom, which works much better for shooting video.

Which mic would you recommend this one the iQ6 or ...

Which mic would you recommend this one the iQ6 or the iQ7 if i want to record youtube and fitness videos where I am speaking about 5 feet away from the iphone and mic? i was considering a the BOYA wireless mic but would rather not have anything on me
Asked by: Tim
Both mics will give you a high quality recording, so you can't go wrong with either mic, but the iQ7 is more versatile. The mid-side capsules on the iQ7 rotate and can be adjusted for stereo recording at 90 or 120 degrees and you can adjust the width of the stereo field. The stereo audio is also fully mono compatible. The iQ6 offers X/Y stereo recording at 90 or 120 degrees which will capture a narrow or wider stereo field. The stereo audio recorded with the iQ6 is not mono compatible, which may not matter for your needs. Because of the flexible options for positioning the capsules and the options for adjusting the width of the field, as well as the mono compatibility, I would recommend the iQ7.
