This mini microphone recorder provides immediate voice recording capabilities. If you are using an iPhone 3G / iPod Touch 2G / iPod Classic 120GB / iPod Nano 4th, you will love to own this small gadget. This microphone plugs into your 3.5mm jack. The cap has a hole in it so that you can pass a string through it to avoid losing this small device.
So yes this microphone is awesome , especially at the pricetag of 1.50 I was really amaze with the quality it provides to my little podcast business I am doing.
I had some problem with Poste Canada and I have to say I was really impressed how quick TECHMART took care of business. My mic was lost in the mail for some reason and I got full refund and I received the mic a day later which was a great surprise. I will buy again from this store (techMart) very soon Im very pleased with the service I got and I would recommend it very highly :)
So yeah back to the mic this is less battery consuming than those Blue mickey that plugs into the sync port so it will give you more time to record what you want. Not sure I would recommand this as a field recording device tho which would require a higher quality mic.
But for the price and the compactness this is a great buy :) dont even think about it its probably less than your frappachino you get everyday at StarBucks !!!!! :))) lol peace
I use this mini microphone on an iPod 5th generation (yes, it works fine on it too) for my choir rehearsals and works perfect for me. No noticeable distortion on high pitch notes, very sturdy and easy to carry with a neck strap (not included). It was a great find for me, and the price is just a joke. The product arrived on time as promised, I would buy again from this seller in the future.
This microphone is really best at recording voice only. Maybe to be used in a meeting or at a lecture or a speech. I've tried to record some live music with it, and it's not built for that. There's a lot of clipping (i.e. the sounds are too loud for the microphone, so the loudest parts end up distorted) happening even when recording just a large choir.
