Blue Microphone Mikey Digitial Mikey Digital microphone by Blue Microphones

Mikey Digital is the only accessory that has both a built-in microphone and 1/8 inch (3.5mm) line-in jack. It also has very high quality microphone capsules and Blue's decades of microphone design experience, resulting in the best recording quality.

Works with Most Popular iOS Recording Apps

Mikey Digital is instantly recognized for use with virtually any audio or video application, including all of the most popular iOS recording apps. To fully benefit from the quality Mikey Digital offers, it's recommended to use a high-quality recording app such as GarageBand, Jammit, FiRe 2.0, Music Studio Lite, or StudioMini Recording Studio, since Apple's built-in Voice Memos app records at a lower bit rate.

Your iOS device recognizes Mikey Digital as a microphone and will use it for any application using a microphone, except the phone and Facetime functions. Video recording and outside apps will use Mikey Digital. iOS compatible with iPod touch (4th Gen), iPhone 4/4S, iPad/iPad2/iPad (3rd Gen). Use the Apple Lightning Adapter (sold separately) for compatibility with iPhone 5, iPad (4th Gen), and iPad Mini.

Automatic Gain Control

The Mikey Digital features an automatic gain control function that utilizes a powerful processor which constantly analyzes the sound and tracks the change in sound volume over a long periods of time, so it is able to make better decisions around when to change the sensitivity. Similarly, the processor tracks the versatile input to analyze the load and voltage level of what is plugged into it, and adjusts accordingly to the best sound quality.

Here's my quickreview of the Blue Microphones Mikey Digital iOS microphone. In conjunction with the FiRe2 field recording app, it is a great portable sound recording studio.

Update: I love this device. The first Mikey Digital I received was defective (had a high-pitched background noise in the recordings). I contacted Blue Microphones and they promptly sent me a new one at no cost.

Let me tell you, not only does it sound great, but I've already tried recording it with my band and the recordings sound amazing. No peaking and everything sounded crystal clear. Plus it's great that you can plug a USB cable into it (not included) and allow it to charge the device at the same time (so I can just tell it to record during a 3-hour show and not have to worry about it). The software I was using to record was FiRe 2 (highly recommended. Not free, but great. For free software, try Blue FiRe which used to be sponsored by Blue Microphones). The builtin compression was my favorite feature - even when the loud music stopped and we were just talking, you could still hear it at the perfect audio level and when loud bursts came in, the levels balanced instantly (no noticeable peaking - I say "no noticeable peaking" because in a couple rare spots when there was a burst I could see a couple spikes while doing some post editing of the audio, but for some reason I couldn't personally hear them. I fixed them anyway in the final editing).

It also has a port that I can plug my guitar into and record. Although I'm not personally interested in that feature, I can see how other's would find it useful (The Mikey Digital has a 1/8" port and comes with a 1/8"-to-1/4" converter).

If I do simple talking and compare it to a high-end/expensive condensor mic, I can hear the difference in quality, but not by much. But for mobile recording, nothing beats this in my opinion. And for recording loud (live) music on a portable device and not have to worry about peaking...

I bought the Blue Mikey Digital mic hoping to turn my iPhone 4S into a device comparable in quality to a good quality dedicated digital recorder. The convenience factor associated with just popping a mic attachment onto the iPhone rather than carrying a separate device to my vocal rehearsals was (and is) alluring. I have learned how to use this mic in such a way that it's valuable, certainly adequate for most of my needs. But it's not as good as my Zoom H2, and I suspect that a less expensive device such as a Zoom H1 or a comparable Tascam recorder would also provide superior results. As such, the $98 price tag seems high. Add to this that Tascam's comparable add-on mic (the iM2) is now much, MUCH cheaper--and I would, alas, hesitate to recommend that prospective buyers purchase this item (until the price comes down, at least).

First of all, it's kind of pointless to use the Blue Mikey digital in conjunction with the iPhone's provided Voice Memo app. The sampling rate used by that simple program apparently does not make proper use of the mic's capabilities. I instead use an EXCELLENT app called FiRe 2 (Field Recorder 2), which costs a mere $5.99 and is absolutely fantastic. This is not a review of the app, but I will insert here that if you do any recording on your iPhone or iPad (though there is not yet a version really made for the iPad) this is easily the best, most versatile program around. It even provides for sound file editing on the fly. Amazing!

Using Blue Mikey Digital in conjunction with FiRe 2, you can obtain very good recordings. The app has various gain adjustment features that, in conjunction with the mic's three sensitivity settings, makes it possible to achieve proper sound levels in just about any situation. If you set the FiRe 2 sample rate at 44.

For anyone who uses hearing aids, you know how hard it is to hear in a noisy restaurant. The Blue Mikey has changed this personal isolation for me. The following New York Times article explains it better than I can. As for issues with the iPhone 4s, I had no problems using it with either the old OS or the new 6. I don't know why people are having problems. My iPhone is in a Lifeproof case so I had to get a special adapter from Lifeproof which works perfectly. I also use the soundAMP R app which is $4.99.

For Hard of Hearing, Clarity Out of the Din
By ANNE EISENBERG (New York Times)

DIGITAL hearing aids can do wonders for faded hearing. But other devices can help, too, as audio technology adds new options to help people converse at a noisy restaurant, or talk quietly with a pharmacist at a crowded drugstore counter.

Richard Einhorn, a composer who suddenly lost much of his hearing two years ago, relies on his hearing aid, of course, for general use. But when he is meeting friends at a busy coffee shop -- where his hearing aid is not always good at distinguishing their voices amid the clatter -- he removes it. He has a better solution.

He pops on a pair of in-ear earphones and snaps a directional mike on his iPhone, which has an app to amplify and process sound.

"I put the iPhone on the table," he said. "I point it at whoever's talking, and I can have conversations with them. Soon we forget the iPhone is sitting there."

Mr. Einhorn's ad hoc solution to restaurant racket is a feasible one, said Jay T. Rubinstein, a professor of bioengineering and otolaryngology at the University of Washington.

"It makes sense when you need to capture a speaker's voice in a noisy environment," he said.
