Capture Events Just as They Happen
M/S stereo is beloved in the pro world, for the technique results in a highly realistic recording, both in terms of width and depth. M/S recordings also "fold down" to mono without issue, and this makes them particularly attractive to people who demand mono-compatibility for their stereo recordings. With the iQ7, you can rest assured that your audio will sound equally good, whether its heard on headphones or off a phone's speaker.
For Horizontal Video, Vertical Video, or Audio Only
Built with a rotating capsule design, the iQ7 mic can align with your camera to capture audio while recording video, or to better suit an audio-only recording. It can also be used to record audio for horizontal or vertical video, delivering perfect left-to-right stereo orientation in the resultant recording. When recording audio without video, simply rotate the mic to the audio position, and point your phone like a mic to the sound you want to record.
Broadcast-Quality Sound
The iQ7 records audio at broadcast-quality 48 kHz/16-bit. You'll have the ability to adjust the stereo width using a slider. The controls are easy to master: a simple gain knob, and the aforementioned stereo-width control. Note the 3.5mm headphone jack as well; this output allows you to monitor audio through headphones while you record, and it can be used as a line out for recording an analog backup recording if desired.
Easy Controls & Monitoring
Adjust your input level, with a large front-facing MIC gain knob and LED level meters. Use the headphone jack for monitoring your audio before, during, and after recording.
Available Zoom Handy App
The mic is designed to work with Zoom's free Handy Recorder app, available on the iOS store. You'll be able to monitor audio without latency straight from the app. When it comes to preparing your recording for the outside world, you'll be able to perform fine editing functions with a waveform display, save your files in either linear PCM or AAC file formats, and apply effects such as compression, EQ, and reverb to further enhance the sound. Share your resulting files over email, or post them to SoundCloud for the world to hear.

This will depend on the specific make and model of case you are using. However, the iQ7 can be attached to most phones with cases by removing the black spacer around the iQ7's lightning connector.
