    IK Multimedia iRig Mic reviews

    iRig Mic is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 21.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from iRig Mic is great for off-site recording Using the iRig mic to record myself in places where a notebook computer is just overkill shows what a great little product this mic really is. It is very clear in what it captures and has a wide frequency response. The one thing which will keep it from getting a 5th star from me is that the attachment from the cable to the plug to insert into the headphone jack of the iPad looks fragile. It would have been better had they used a plug at the end of the mic and included an adapter to insert it into which would then go into the headphone jack of the ipad and would provide a headphone jack as well as the place to attach the mic cable.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Perfect for Facebook and You Tube videos At our company we have been using my iPhone 4s exclusively to shoot and edit videos (edited in iMovie on the phone). While the video is great, the built-in mic picks up everything. we are shooting people describing exercise routines at 12-15' from the camera. I looked at a lot of different mic options and for $ this seemed worth the chance. I've been extrememly pleased. There are three sensativity settings and it integrates seemlessly with iMovie. I have it mounted on a mic stand just below the camera and about a foot in front (closer to the action while staying out of frame). Auidio is good and while it does pick up ambient sound, it is minimal compared to the built-in mic. We are also going to use the mic at tradeshows for on the spot interviews so we can send them straight to You Tube.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from It's Good, It works I write iPadreporter on a wordpress site, and I combined the iRig mic with the soundcloud app. It worked great in the cafe where my daughter and I were sitting. The best part about it is that the filter on it turns off the iPad's onboard Mic. I bought another filter and use a collar mic with that, but both mics are hot when I use that filter. I looked on the Apple site, and there's no way to cut off the onboard mic on the iPad2, so this filter really helps. I image people recording with Garage Band or similar apps would like to have just the one mic hot. The cardiod shape seems to work in the simple tests that I ran. The setting requiring the most input from the user (think singer on stage) really does require the mic to be within an inch or two of the speaker's mouth. The lightest setting does make regular talking sound like shouting, but it captured room noise well. Overall, I liked the tone of the recording. It's a tad heavy, and the cable does not detach.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Makes Interviewing on the Go A Snap! I frequently interview on the go and record my conversations in my iPhone. This mic is a miracle. There are 3 settings, the sound quality is great and it comes with a convenient carrying case. Best of all NO BATTERIES!! I'm extremely happy with my purchase

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very nice tool Very pleased with the performance and ease of use this mic offers. I have used it with iPads, iPhone and iPod Touch units for secondary audio for interviews both on-camera and off-camera ... as well as my iMac for recording voice over narration. Couldn't be more pleased. Came as part of the Podcast kit.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice hand held mic for the price Works great with my Moto and sounds clear; using voice recorder app. Only two things: the carry case doesn't seem to fit and could be improved; a nice additional item would be adapters to use on a computer or camcorder. I would recommend this purchase.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from iRig Mike-- for the iphone Good heft, easy to attach and use-- with the provided app or any other recording apps. The free vocallive app has a hiss filter-- useful for music, but not needed for podcast or interviewing. Pleased with the purchase-- my primary use is interviews.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Does not work with iPhone 5. Does not work out of the box, period. Did not come with any software. I am having to go back and forth with tech support to see if we can make it work; otherwise, this will be returned. Connected to iPhone 5 with latest version of IOS.
