The device allows reporters, correspondents and audio professionals to quickly and easily capture professional interviews and dialogue to a smartphone or tablet. A three meter shielded cable allows the operator to store the phone in a pocket or bag, and a headphone output with adjustable level on the body makes it easy to monitor your audio while recording.

    Rode I-XLR Reviews

    i-XLR Digital XLR Adapter for Apple iOS Devices is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 7.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great way to get quality sound on an iPhone I use the FiLMiC Pro app on my iPhone 6, which enhances the phone's video capabilities tremendously. Adding the iXLR adapter allows me to get a similar bump up in audio quality. Combined, the two additions make for recordings you'd never guess came from an iPhone. The iXLR allows you to use the iPhone's lightning port to bring audio in from high-quality powered XLR microphones (the iXLR does not supply phantom power). It includes a headphone input through which you can monitor the audio being recorded, which I think is essential. Solid build quality. Great functionality. Highly recommended.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great sound, lots of gain, may be limited on apps I use this for daily news gathering. It replaces an analog XLR mic-to-TRRS adapter for iPhone audio and video recording. When used with the Rode Reporter app - the audio quality is terrific, there's a huge range of gain and record quality options, and it seems reliable. When used with apps other than Rode Reporter, including the iPhone's native camera-video recording function, the mic gain - or audio output - may be uncontrollably high. Certain apps have the ability to reduce the gain enough for a clean recording (Luci Live), but many do not. I'd recommend using the Rode app for recording and then open in another app to get the audio into the alternate app for editing, file conversion, etc.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best accessory for iPad video! I waited a year for this product to become available, and the wait was well worth it! I can now use any of the various microphones I own to achieve the best possible audio to accompany the video I shoot on my iPad. I shoot veteran oral history interviews an concieved a portable setup that would allow me to shoot in the field, in confined spaces and under difficult conditions. The only item missing from my kit was a professional audio solution. The Rode iXLR now allows me to fulfill that final element of quest. The only way to make it better would be to add an additional Lightning port to allow an external battey to be connect so that I can record longer while in the field.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from This product adds a whole new dimension to iDevice recordin So far, I have tested the Rode iXLR with Sennheiser G3 wireless systems (lav & handheld), ME66/K6 shotgun and MD46 dynamic handheld with excellent results. I will acquire a TRS to XLR adapter so I can test the Rode Video Mic Pro and other 3.5mm TRS microphones.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from This thing has burned me twice - Its Garbage I use this to connect an XLR to my iPhone for FB Live videos. Monitoring the audio when the FB app is open is terrible. Im looking for another piece of equipment to replace this.
