The Zoom iQ5 Stereo Microphone

A revolution in iOS microphones

The cameras in today's iOS devices are awesome. The built-in microphones, not so much.

Zoom's iQ5 solves that problem by adding a high-quality stereo condenser mic to any iPhone, iPad, or iPod Touch equipped with a Lightning connector. Simply plug it in and start recording great-sounding audio any time, any place—even stream your creations live. At last your videos can sound as good as they look!

  • Works with any Lightning-equipped iPhone, iPad, or iPod Touch
  • Works with most iOS apps that support audio input from an external microphone, including GarageBand, Voice Memos, Camera, iMovie, Instagram, and Vine
  • Mid-side recording for adjustable stereo width and perfect mono compatibility
  • Unique rotating mechanism ensures correct left-right stereo orientation whether used vertically or horizontally
  • Analog-type mic gain wheel for precision level setting
  • Auto Gain and Limiter prevent clipping overloads
  • Free Handy Recorder app allows you to edit sound files and add effects

Blur the line between observer and instigator

Affordable, easy to use, and compact enough to be slipped into your pocket, the iQ5 allows you to make quality audio recordings wherever you go. It's ideal for taking your YouTube, Instagram, and Vimeo creations to the next level and for capturing the sound of live concerts, lectures, and meetings, as well as for conducting interviews and covering breaking news in the field.

Mid-Side recording made easy

Mid-side recording is a great way to capture stereo sound. The iQ5 contains two microphone elements: a directional “mid” mic that captures audio coming from in front, and a bidirectional “side” mic that covers the signal all around you.

A simple three-way stereo width switch on the iQ5 allows you to customize your sound to your precise recording situation: Set it to 90° to hone in on an individual sound, or 120° for a wider image that includes the surrounding ambience and reverberation. For even more control, you can record the mid and side mic signals as "raw" M-S data so you can later adjust the stereo width from 30° to 150° with Zoom's free Handy Recorder iOS app.

It's all in the app

Download Zoom's free Handy Recorder app to add even more functionality to your iQ5. In addition to providing MS decoding for variable stereo width, it offers effects such as reverb and six-band EQ, as well as editing tools like Normalize and Divide. There's also an automatic recording feature that allows you to start and stop recording whenever a particular level is reached—convenient when recording lectures or meetings.

The Handy Recorder app also allows the iQ5 to record audio in either linear PCM (WAV) format for full CD-quality, or in AAC format for smaller file sizes and faster data transfer. With Handy Recorder, you can even email your audio files to friends and upload them to SoundCloud for sharing with the world.

1, Reason why I chose this product :
I purchased this because of its oversea reviews (rated very high).
This is a very well made product for its quality. I've used all recording modes, and they worked as it stated.

2, What I like & dislike :
Round shape microphone rotates depending on its recording mode (audio only or Video), so you get correct stereo recording.
It could be a hassle to carry because of its size.

3, I recommend this product to :
Anyone.

4, Priced :
I think it's about right.

I'm an organist and actually have a Zoom [stand alone] recorder. But when I saw this online, I bought it since I always have my phone or ipad with me. First disappointment was that the way it's shaped, it's impossible to use with a case on either the phone or the ipad....so I have to go through the trouble to peel off the case(s) to use it. It works very well, though. The pipe organ is the hardest instrument to record and it does a great job. I did end up getting a cable (Lightning Extension Cable (2 foot black) for iPhone 6, 6 Plus; Pass Video, Data, Audio Through Male to Female 8-Pin Cable. dockXtender for Lightning by CableJive.) from Amazon that does solve my problem with the cases. But the iphone or pad tell me EVERY TIME I plug it in that it's not a official cable and may not work with the device....so far it has.
I've recommended it to friends, but warning them about the case problem.
It's a little on the expensive side, but then, I'm old enough to remember microphones costing $400 EACH that were good enough to record organ music...so $90 for a STEREO MICROPHONE is damned cheap. I always record at a distance from the organ [like the balcony rail] so the stereo separation is great! May not be as good up close. Would I buy it again...sure---though wishing they'd solve the plug problem with a case!
