This is an excellent product with performs extremely well.

If you're recording lectures, this may not be critical but if, like me, you want to use your iPod as a portable memory jogger, this is a great solution.

It's great for me, but the mic picks up wayyy too much white noise.

I had a 20GB iPod and was using a Griffin iTalk to record my classes. When I got my new iPod, I wanted to see if there was anything better to use for recording. Now, my needs aren't great (just lectures for the most part), so I don't require a high-end product. The XtremeMac MicroMemo is a good product that covers my needs (and then some). It has a mic and speaker (2 separate pieces). Having a separate mic allows you to use another mic with a 3.5mm plug (should you wish). It has both low and high quality recording modes (8-bit and 16-bit respectively). I typically use the low setting, which takes up less space. The mic is flexible, so you can aim it wherever and it doesn't pick up drive noise from the iPod (a big problem w/the iTalk on my old iPod).

A thing that bugs me is the lack of a carrying pouch or case for the mic and speaker. I worry about the mic sitting loose in my backpack (even in a separate pocket). Another drag is you can't charge your iPod while the MicroMemo is attached - a bummer since the MicroMemo runs off your iPod's battery.

Overall, I think it's a really good product (over 100 hours recorded since Xmas).

For those in search of a fix for the inherent hiss in Micromemo recordings, here's a suggested solution:

I couldn't figure out how to eliminate the hiss in the Micromemo/iPod system, but I had success in removing it from recordings via Audacity.

1) Isolate Micromemo's microphone to where it's recording as close to 0db of sound as possible. Go into a closet and wrap just the mic in a thick sweater (you want to isolate the mic from even iPod noise). Save this 0db recording in an un-compressed format.

2) Make other recordings normally, and open them and the 0db recording together in Audacity.

3) Select the entire length of the 0db recording, select Noise Removal from the Effect drop-down, and then click 'Get Noise Profile'.

4) Select the entire length of each recording that you want to remove Micromemo hiss from, select Noise Removal, then 'Remove Noise' (I always leave accompanying the slider set close to 'less', to take as little bites as possible). This will remove the hiss from Micromemo/iPod recordings. While there will still be some minimal sound detritus remaining, it is negligible in the present context.

I have used 3 different mP3/MP4 recorders, none of them recorded as good as this baby, this is the best recorder I've seen, and with 30 gig video Ipot plus this recorder i don't need any extra voice recorder. you'll be happy with this for sure

I bought this for my wife. As a teacher, she wanted to create podcasts of critical class information. This provides a simple and excellent way to do that. The sound is surprisingly good!

Wow! A product that works great, is well designed, and a great value.

I have a 5th generation video iPod and looked at all the voice recording products. I chose this one because of the playback function. If you're recording lectures, this may not be critical but if, like me, you want to use your iPod as a portable memory jogger, this is a great solution.

This couldn't be simpler to use. Just plug it in and it automatically opens to the voice memo settings, and if you want to save your memos, they sync to your computer when you sync your iPod.

I'm using it for to-dos, as another "capture" device and also as an adjunct to my working journals, which are becoming electronic.

In this age of information overload, I need all the help I can get to capture my ideas and this definitely helps.

You can unplug the mic, by the way, which is useful for storage and also means you can substitute another mic of your choosing.

This was not exactly what I was looking for the following reasons:
1. Only records in WAV format. I don't know if this is an exclusively IPOD OS feature but two hours of recording uses 1.5GB (Too much in my concern)
2. It consumes the full IPOD battery in less than 2.5 hours and the worst part is that this device has not choice to plug any charger the IPOD simultaneously.
3. It has to be very (when I say very is very very) close to the source in order to capture a good record.
4. When the device is attached to the IPOD you have to be very careful because is too easy to disconnect.
In other words need a better design to fix the power consumption problem, the recording sensibility/format and the "attachability" to the IPOD

I got this to record my classes in college with my iPod Video 5G, but it broke and I got a new iPod Classic. This works just as well with the new one (unlike a lot of the other accessories I had, like the video out cable). It is sensitive enough if you are pretty close to the front of the room. Has a pretty good interface and is easy to use. The only thing that might make it better would be a pass-through to make it so you can charge the ipod and record at the same time (I think there is a belkin product that has this capability but the actual recording isn't as good). Recommended overall.
