IK Multimedia’s newest accessory, the iRig Mic, has been on pre-order status for some time. Today, the high quality handheld microphone designed for use with your iDevice is now shipping and available for standard ordering.

The iRig Mic is a professional handheld microphone with metal housing, quality condenser-electret unidirectional capsule, 3-level gain switch to adjust for soft or loud sound input, and a dual mini-jack connector for combined audio input and output at the end of a 6.5 foot (2 meter) cable. Use the iRig Mic for anything from a rock performance to a group speech to video recording and interviewing.

It doesn’t require a musician to utilize the iRig Mic, because it works with any iOS app that uses microphone input. Take advantage of better audio quality with the video portion of Apple’s Camera app, Voice Memos app, iMovie, GarageBand, and many others.

For those who are musicians, IK Multimedia has a reminder that the iRig Mic works as a great companion to VocaLive, AmpliTube, AmpliTube Fender, and the upcoming iRig Recorder iOS apps.

The iRig Mic is available at the IK Multimedia Web Store for $59.99/€49.99, plus applicable shipping and taxes.
