IK Multimedia has a great line of microphones that can improve your phone’s audio. I’ve used the handheld microphone in conference situations, and know how important it is to condense the ambient noise. Today, I’m looking at 3 iRig mics that can help you with your VLOG, interview, or whatever you plan to record.
iRig Mic HD 2
If you want to do interviews, sing into your phone, podcast, or simply have video using a handheld mic, then the HD2 is for you. This is a dynamic hand-held microphone that will record at 24-bit, 96kHz.
The mic has an on-board pre-amp with gain control, and headphone jack with volume. It can be used for vocals, recording an instrument, and more.
The USB connectors will allow it to work with iOS, Android, PC, and Mac. Using Mic Room can turn this microphone into whatever sound you’re looking for.
The iRig Mic HD 2 is $99.99 and available now.
iRig Mic Cast HD
This is a pocket-sized microphone that hangs on your phone. It can do a stereo split audio to get a good one-on-one interview.
The Mic Cast HD also records 24-bi, 96 kHz sound, and the selectable switch allows you to record solo, interview the host only, or have a conversation with the device in the middle.
If you add the Double Take App, you can record one-on-one videos from across the table.
The Mic Cast HD is also $99.99, and available now.
iRig Mic Video
Sometimes, a boom microphone is needed to capture sound. That way, you can be farther back from the camera to capture more area.
The best part about the Mic Video is you can use this with your favorite camera. 3.5mm jack allows to plug into a DLSR, sound recorder, or other type of audio/video recorder to get sound at a distance.
You can even record to camera, and through your USB device to get the audio in two places.
Just like the other two, the Mic Video records at 24-bit 96 kHz sound. A wind screen is also available to attach on the boom.
The iRig Mic Video is $129.99
