For those of you whose interests are now peaked, the Blue Mikey is simply a REAL microphone for iPod users that offers stereo sound recording (comparable to some near field recorders on the market) which lets you hear a low-volume preview of whatever you’ve just recorded. The Mikey is made with the same technology that supports their large line of microphone capsules, so you are assured of excellent quality. The Mikey is ideal for recording jam sessions, concerts, interviews and hall lectures.
The Mikey can flex in 45-degree increments through 180 degrees which allows users to lie the iPod on it’s back or allow it to stand up for recording with the Mikey serving as a base.
At this point in time, it does not feature a USB port or input for musicians who’d like to record their guitar for instance, but I don’t believe that it was their goal a this point. But after reading this review, I am sure they will be on it. Bottom line, the IPod needed a solid recording microphone and who better to create on than a prestigious Microphone company.
You’ll notice I haven’t mentioned “iPhone”. That’s because the original Mikey wasn’t created for the iPhone, but in case you are wondering, it DOES work for the iPhone when you put your cell in airplane mode. With that said, it has now been optimized for iPhone usage and will be upgraded sometime this year.
If you are a musician, concert lover, college student and you need a great means of recording and you own an iPod or iPhone, the Blue Mikey is your smartest choice for great audio quality!
