I've had to record a lot of audio at trade shows like Macworld and CES using the iPhone as a microphone, and while it was okay, it was never ideal. The Mikey by Blue Microphones brings it much closer to ideal. The Mikey connects to your iPhone or iPod using the 30-pin Dock connector (or through a Lightning to 30-pin adapter for newer iOS devices) and turns them into mobile recording powerhouses.
Well respected microphone manufacturer Blue is launching a new range of microphones aimed squarely at users of the iPhone, iPad or iPod touch. Two new models will be on display at CES 2012 which starts next week.
