5.0 out of 5 stars Mini Microphone for iPod 22 April 2009
This is a small mic that fits in the earphone socket of an iPod. (Mine's an iPod Classic). It comes with an overcap that makes it look rather like a bean when closed. When you pull it open you'll see a triple ringed connector that just pops in to the earphone socket.

For the iPhone 3G & iPod Touch you'll need to install additional software, such as iTalk Recorder or Easy Recorder, to use this item. For the iPod Nano & iPod Classic there's pre-loaded software on the units, so you're ready to use this straight away.

Once you put the mic in the iPod, a new menu item appears called "Voice Memos". In there you've a choice of High or Low quality recordings. Just click and start the recording. It'll save the recording as a .WAV file to the iPod. You can make iTunes automatically copy these voice memos to a playlist called "Voice Memos". Pretty simple.

The quality of the recordings are quite good. I tried from a few distances (1, 3 & 6 feet away) and it seemed fine for dictaphone use and even recording a guitar & vocals.

I don't know about how much battery life it drains, as I've not used it for that long as yet. However, as it plugs into the earphone connector, I assume you can plug a charger in to the dock connector at the same time to charge the battery as it runs - which you can't do with a mic that connects to the dock connector. If that works it's a good feature of the unit.

I also like how compact this unit is. It fits on the little bag I've got for my earphones and is very discrete when plugged into the unit.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Little Mic! 13 May 2009
By Adz
I own an Ipod touch and wanted to use some of the audio features and apps that an Iphone can use because it already has a microphone. I seemed to recieve this product quickly and undamaged.

For its size I think it is an excellent piece of kit! It is smart and compact like a little black bean so it stays protected and seems to fit into my ipod well without it being loose or faulty. I have had it for a few weeks now and I am very please with it!

Its very sensetive for a mic that is so small and this means it is good for recording things that at a distance however if you are recording loud noises you may find it become distorted. However at a reasonable volume volume the recording quality I would say is very good! It fits neatly into the headphone socket and does exactly what it says and I would recommend this for anyone looking for a cheap and easy solution for turning and ipod or iphone into a audio recorder!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great for recording interviews 27 July 2009
Does what it says. Sensitive enough for recording interviews at a comfortable distance. No compatibility problems with my 4Gen nano. If I was going to have a winge I would say it would be very easy to lose due to its size and inconspicous appearance.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best little listener in town 6 Aug 2009
A tiny little microphone that, for the price, picks up well. Don't expect great quality sound, and music tends to distort, but great for lectures etc. I thought at first I would need to keep it somewhere safe; but (probably through laziness) I simply keep it plugged in to my iPod Touch at all times. As I don't listen to music much, that's no problem for me. And the wear and tear has not affected the performance. You need to remove it in order to hear what you've recorded; but, hey, what do you want for that amount of money?

5.0 out of 5 stars Great gizmo 4 Aug 2009
Verified Purchase
This is a super little gadget. Works brilliantly with my 120gb classic ipod. Obviously not studio/professional standard sound, but for memos/voice recording etc, it's great - nice and clear. Works really well with my ipod on 'low' quality sound, thus saving battery power. Good price, and I got mine within 24 hours of ordering. Only downside is how not to lose it when it's not attached to the ipod, as it's so small. Any ideas, not involving velcro?

5.0 out of 5 stars Works well 13 Jan 2010
It's good for recording voice or musical instrument onto your ipod. I tried it with my guitar and the quality is great. Also its really easy to carry around as it is small but careful you don't lose it.
