OVERVIEW

Mid-side stereo condenser mic for iOS devices.

When you're ready to take your iOS audio to the next level, plug in a Zoom iQ7. This compact yet full-featured mid-side stereo condenser mic is perfect for capturing music as well as video with outstanding audio. With the iQ7, you can create great-sounding recordings on your iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch any time, any place.

Create and Innovate
Connect an iQ7 to your iOS device and prepare to make your mark on the world. Craft audio that makes a difference. Move from bystander to creator.

Comprehensive Control
The iQ7 offers advanced features that allow you to create extraordinary stereo recordings every time. A large front-facing MIC GAIN knob allows you to easily set the optimum input level, and three-segment level LED level meters ensure clean, crisp sound with no signal overload.
In addition, a dedicated headphone jack-which doubles as a line output-allows you to monitor your audio during both recording and playback.

Perfect Left-Right Every Time
The iQ7's rotating mechanism ensures correct left-right stereo orientation whether you're creating audio-only recordings or capturing audio for your video.

Mid-Side Recording
Mid-side is an advanced recording technique that allows the width of the stereo image to be varied, even in post-production. The two microphone elements in the iQ7 include a directional "mid" mic that captures signal coming from directly in front of your iOS device, and a bidirectional "side" mic that captures the audio coming from both sides.

A three-way switch allows you to select between 90 (to focus on sounds coming from the center) and 120 (for a wider image that includes ambience and room signal). A third setting, labeled "M-S," enables you record the audio "raw" and adjust its stereo width afterwards, using Zoom's free downloadable Handy Recorder iOS app.

Extended Compatibility
The iQ7 works with all Lightning-equipped iOS devices. It comes with an extended Lightning connector and a removable spacer for compatibility with most iPhone, iPad and iPod cases. Leave your case on and start recording.
* Some cases might prevent connection even when the case adjuster is removed.

The Zoom Handy Recorder App
Zoom's free Handy Recorder app, available from the iTunes App Store, adds a wealth of audio tools to your iOS device. Overdub to the stereo recordings created with your iQ7. Perform fine editing functions in its waveform display. Save your files in either linear PCM or AAC file formats. Apply onboard effects such as compression, EQ and reverb to further enhance the sound. Handy Recorder even allows you to email the audio you create and to upload it to SoundCloud for sharing with the world.

Amplify Your Creativity
The iQ7 is compatible with most iOS apps that support input from an external microphone, including Apple's Voice Memo and Garageband, as well as other popular music recording, voice recognition and streaming apps. Apps that provide support for multiple sampling rates-such as Handy Recorder-work great too, allowing you to choose between 44.1 and 48kHz recording for optimum audio quality.

    Comments about Zoom iQ7 MS Stereo Microphone for iOS:

    firstly....be aware this will not fit on the phone if you have a caseon it. Yes, they have a case adapter, but even with it it still did not plug in properly. Total pain to have to keep removing the case, and my case is a very average size, nothing oversized.
    Secondly, I found I got better and clearer sound using the iphone 6 mic than I did with this plugged in. I have done probably around 100 or more recordings for people, onto CDs, and am very experienced at recording, mixing, editing etc.
    I will say the app for the recorder is excellent however, I did enjoy that.
    The idea of a better and stereo mic for the phone is nice, but I will be looking for a different model. For now, for casual but good recording with something small, I will go back to the Zoom H2n which is an amazing little hand recorder. I have returned this phone mic....disappointed. Even if it had been great, having to remove your case each time you use it, makes it too much of an ordeal.

    Comments about Zoom iQ7 MS Stereo Microphone for iOS:

    I was excited to have received this. But it was too good to be true. The device did not record audio. It only worked in my iPhone camera app when making video. In the Zoom app and in the plain old voice recorder app, it did not pick up the mic -- at all. Did some troubleshooting with Zoom customer service and it seems it just doesn't work.
