Sounds Good to Me
If the last school concert recording you made with your smartphone sounded like it took place in a shower, you need more than a new microphone. With three microphones at its disposal, Zoom’s iQ5 weighs just over an ounce and plugs right into an iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch and can deliver high quality audio. It not only has a volume adjustment as well as a way to vary the area the microphones cover, but the iQ5 comes with a recording app, complete with special effects. It’s available in white or black and costs about $100.
