Capture high quality audio on your iPod with Mikey


The best iPod recorder of its kind is just around town and we don't want you to miss it. Blue Microphones, the makers of studio mics, are out with their latest offering for the iPod and it is an iPod recorder aptly named - Mikey. And it can help you record your lectures, voice notes, live music, interviews, or just about any audio that you want to tuck away on your iPod.

This mini stereo microphone attaches nicely to the bottom of your iPod and can be rotated upto 180-degrees around its connected end to catch the appropriate direction of sound. Though Mikey leaves a lot to be desired in the looks department - it is unflatteringly square and almost boring - the excellent stereo quality sound that it can capture more than covers up for that deficit. This detailed unboxing from CNET places Mikey a level higher than even its higher-priced competitors such as the Belkin GoStudio as far as the quality of recorded audio is concerned. That said, more control on your recording comes via the three gain settings that you can tweak to your satisfaction and are indicated on the mic via three LED indicators.

You do not need any software to use Mikey, and it records without a fuss for upto 4hrs on the iPod Nano 2G, 3G, and 4G; the iPod Classic, and the iPod 5G. Which is to say that the Touch and iPhone are out of consideration for the moment. For the rest of us, it is a $80 well-spent.
