It bears repeating once again that recording stuff with iDevices will not eclipse the kind of quality you can get with dedicated equipment. But that doesn’t mean you can’t try and make things a little better through the use of attachments like the above boom microphone for the iPhone, iPod, iPad, etc. It attaches to the headphone jack and secures to the rest of the device through adjustable clips; it’ll even hold on with the use of a case. The 4 inch long mic has two settings, for near or far recording, and will improve the quality and intensity of recorded sound severalfold. It works on 1 AAA battery.
It’s pretty cheap too, considering what it does: $40, with shipping starting April 23rd.
