Griffin MicConnect lets your XLR microphone make sweet music on your iPhone or iPad

Let's say you have an amazing XLR mic on your big, beefy studio or home recording rig, but you also have an iPad or iPhone and you really want to get that same XLR quality on your way more mobile recording rig, what do you do? Griffin's answer, shown off at CES 2013, is the XLR MicConnect.

The MicConnect supplies phantom power, thanks to AA batteries, and connects via the 3.5mm headphone jack on your iPad or iPad.

I really like the idea of these kinds of accessories, and being able to get the quality on the go that I'm used to at home. If you use an XLR mic, let me know if you're also interested in trying this out.

Griffin Binder Insert Case for iPad review

The Griffin Binder Insert Case for iPad is a brilliant idea. I'm actually shocked I haven't seen more of these! It seems like the prefect accessory for those headed back to school.

The basic idea for the Griffin Binder Insert Case is this -- take an iPad case, press three standard spaced holes along one side, and make it perfectly fit a school or work binder. I love it. There's even a built-in pen holder which you can use for a regular pen to take your paper notes, a stylus to take your iPad notes, or even better, a hybrid stylus pen that lets you do both all in one.

Griffin Wristlet for iPod nano -- accessory review

The Giffin Wristlet for iPod nano is nice silicone holder for Apple's tiniest screen-based music player. Just slip your 6th generation iPod nano into the stretchy case, then wrap the wrist strap around your wrist.

The case covers the on/off and volume buttons, protecting them from scuffs and scrapes and minor weather, but leaves the 30 pin dock connector and 3.5mm headphone jack clear for easy syncing, charging, and listening. There's a cutout for the clip, so you can still clamp your nano onto a shirt or band or anything else if you so choose.

The wrist strap is quite comfortable, and the nice thing is you can really hang it on just about anything. And yes, it does let you weaponize your nano, kung-fu whip style -- though it might not survive a lot of impacts. Unfortunately, it's moulded out of the same single piece of silicone as the case itself so it's not really adjustable.

All in all the Giffin Wristlet for iPod nano offers good protection, and the wrist strap an extra option for carrying around your music player.
