XY positioned stereo condenser microphones for iOS devices.

With the release of the iM2X iPod Touch, iPhone and iPad stereo microphone, TASCAM has once again introduced another must-have essential to your iOS accessory collection. Spinning off the popular January 2012 release of the iM2 stereo AB microphone, TASCAM features an XY mic placement in the iM2X model. The XY configuration accommodates situations that call for focused recording and tight stereo imaging like acoustic performance and interview/voice recording. iM2X is ideal for songwriting, journalism, broadcast, podcast, recording video and on-the-spot audio recording situations.

Keeping similarity with iM2, iM2X features 180˚ mic capsule rotation, quality mic pres and exceptional A/D conversion. TASCAM's ease-of-use approach is found in the simple layout of functions on the device itself. On the right, a rotary level input control, On the left, limiter switch and mini-USB port to allow charging of your iOS device while the iM2X is in use. The front features a multicolor LED that indicates microphone recognition and input level overload. Replacing the built-in microphone and converters with iM2X guarantees excellent audio quality in any situation.

When iM2X is paired with TASCAMs PCM Recorder app (a free download from the App store) an iPod Touch, iPhone and iPad turns into the ultimate portable stereo recorder. PCM Recorder features 44.1/16-bit WAV recording, 2-band EQ, low-cut filter, L/R swap, and instant SoundCloud upload. In addition, the iM2X will also operate with any other audio or video application that accepts incoming audio from the built-in mic.

    I got this as the stupid deal of the day for cheap. For the price I got it at, you can't beat it. It has superior audio quality to the built in mics on the iPhone/iPad/iPod. I bought it to use as an external microphone for video work. I was surprised at how clear it was. It isn't as loud as the built in microphones, but the noise level is low and can easily be fixed in post. The only bad things about this microphone is that there is not a charge cable provided (although it is a standard charge cable) and there is no TASCAM app that I could find on the App Store. It worked fine with Voice Memos and built in video. There also isn't a way to tell if the device is fully charged or low on battery (that I'm aware of or that was listed in the manual). If you can get it for cheap, it's definitely worth to have as a tool. The limiter function works well, this thing could make a loud show still audible and not a distorted mess.

    Not sure if I missed where it says iPhone 4 or if the abbreviated listing for SDOD skipped that part but the Microphone is useless for me. I suppose the reason they were blowing this model out is because the iPhone it's designed for is nearly obsolete. This will be going back but could have avoided the hassle if the discription clearly stated it was incompatible with the current iPhones & iPads..

    Comments about TASCAM iM2x iOS Stereo Microphone:

    Great mic, perfect for higher quality phone recordings. I use it to jot down ideas, record spontaneous jams, and events. It impresses my friends when they see. It's very light, almost flimsy. The mics do rotate and hold where they are. I do find myself in need of a better iOS recording app, one that can simply record, pause, and stop, in stereo.

      Records clearly and adds stereo "open-ness". Plug and play (Garage Band). Not as good as a condenser mic with pre-amp but definitely an improvement over mics on my iPhone/iPad.

        I got it as a Stupid Deal. 70% off mrsp. Well,that was cheap. So, for that amount of money I'd buy it again and again! no doubt. The sound is a huuuuge step up from the iPhone internal mics. Of course, if you compare to professional recording gear it's going to fall short. Signal to Noise ratio, for example, is not close to a sony pcm d50 or something similar. There are also some annoying bugs regarding to monitoring (sometimes you have to unplug the headphones and plug back again so it will work) but no big deal. And after all it's compact, easy to carry around and fun!

              I bought this because it was on sale. So far, it seems to be easy to use. You need to download the Tascam app or have another app available (I used Garage Band). The sound was impressive for such a small device. I used it with my iPad and thought it did vwey well. My only problem was my unfamiliarity with the Garage Band app. I downloaded Tascam's app to see if it was more user friendly. Have not used it yet.

              If your phone has a case, you might need to get an adapter to be able to plug in the microphone. Other than that, working as expected.
