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.
