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.

I used this for my Toastmasters club to record speeches.  I had to turn my audio up to max on my PC to hear the recording.  It may just be that I have some learning and experimenting to do to reap the benefits of an external mic for an iPhoneX.  I plan on using it for recording podcasts in the near future.

Never Sure if it Was On or Working Right, Not Very Durable

I first tried this Mic at a SF Con my wife was speaking at for her Website, and to my horror I ended up largely recording me and everyone behind me rather than her! Was never sure what the volume knob was telling me, and even once I got both mics pointed in the right direction the improvement in sound quality was...ehh. Worse, by the end of our second SF Con the microphone had broken off their stands, so didn't matter if I turned it or not - they just hung off the stands by their wires.

Sounds great, easy to use

This is a great-sounding mic that's small and easy to carry. And the included foam windscreen also makes a good gripper to help keep this little guy from slipping out of your bag or pocket. I use it mainly for recording nat sound and ambience, and it has good sensitivity for that. I have an older phone (iPhone 7 Plus), and the lightning plug is a little wobbly and so it makes a little bit of static, but as long as I'm not roughly handling my phone it's not a problem. I tried it on my wife's newer phone and it fits much more securely.

Frustrating

Spent hours trying to figure out why I could not monitor recording with headphones while recording...never figured out. Using on iPhone 12, had to remove Pelican case to keep mic attached. Adaptor supplied was of no help.

Perfect iPhone Companion

Phone speakers are not all created equal and typically not good for recording on the run and or at home. The Zoom iQ7 takes your lightning equipped iPhone to the next level with super high quality audio recordings. I would recommend this to anyone recording audio into the iPhone for music and or voice recordings.

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.

The Zoom iQ7 will work with the iPhone 8 plus but will not accept an external microphone. The 1/8 connection on the side is an output jack for headphone monitoring.
