    Customer Video Review Length:: 2:01 Mins

    I put the iRig Mic to the test against the internal iPod Touch mic in several different Manhattan public settings. The iRig mic on the 2nd setting captures normal talking exceeding well against a backdrop of loud noise including traffic, construction, subways and crowds. Previously I’ve used flip cameras for video projects but flips do not have external mic capabilities. Here on out, I’m all about the iRig and iPod Touch.

    This review is from: IK Multimedia iRig Mic for iPhone/iPod Touch/iPad and Android devices (Electronics)

    I purchased this mic the first week it came out. It lasted about 2 weeks before the cable came loose from the base of the mic.

    BTW, the cable is attached to the mic. It is not an XLR to mini cable. I knew this going in, so it was not an issue for me, but some folks might want to have that information repeated.

    I sent it back, partial refund because the instructions were not included in the return. (as if they were going to turn around and sell a broken mic. hmm…)

    I bought a new one. This one was a dud out of the box. Just didn’t work.

    I sent THAT one back, and thought it had to be a coincidence…that I just had the bad luck of having the only two defective mics from the lot. Wishful thinking.

    The third one lasted about 10 days. I sent it back and obviously will not be purchasing this mic (or any other hardware) from IK until their hardware department shows as much promise as their software department does.

    Here are three things that I understand about this mic, and want to just say in fairness to the company:

    1) I am a professional singer/songwriter. I use my iPad a lot on stage, and was hoping to use this mic on stage with the iPad. That didn’t happen, because none of them lasted long enough for me to rehearse a decent performance with the mic, but I did try to get it to work for a performance, which meant that I used the mics every day for several hours…sometimes on a stand, sometimes hand held. So, I might not be the target end user of this mic. The target end user might be a casual singer, or someone who bought the mic because they had to have the latest iPad gadget, but never uses it, I don’t really know. But I *do* know that the target end user is not a professional musician.

    2) The mic is under 60 dollars. There are no “pro” mics on the market that are 60 dollars new. If you are singing into a 60 dollar mic, you are either at karaoke, or it was purchased used. I recognize this as a limiting factor to the quality and longevity of a mic. But when the longest lasting mic of 3 is around 2 weeks…well, you get what you pay for usually. In this case, I got much less than I paid for. In essence, I rented what amounts to a Radio Shack mic for 2 weeks for 60 dollars.

    3) During the short time that the mics worked, they worked pretty well as a unidirectional mic. Outside noises were kept at a minimum, and mainly the voice that was directly behind the mic was the only one heard. There are three quite confounding setting on this mic: 1) completely and utterly inaudible, 2) I can almost hear what you are saying, could you speak up slightly?, and 3) OMG STOP SCREAMING AT ME!!! when the person holding the mic is barely whispering on the “higher” setting. In some applications, there were ways to modulate the output of the mic, but on less sophisticated apps, this mic was useless.

    I agree with other users. The onboard mics for the iPad/pod/phone are at least as good as this mic, maybe better. No need to get another mic. At least not until the cables come apart from the mic, so they can be replaced without replacing the entire mic. I’m looking forward to seeing their G2 of this mic.
