But versatility is just one of iRig Mic HD’s many attributes. iRig Mic HD sports a 24-bit audiophile-grade A/D converter, a 44.1/48 kHz sampling rate, and a low noise/high definition pre-amp. You can count on iRig Mic HD to give you professional quality results, anytime and anywhere. It can handle the most demanding professional needs in the field or in the studio, and is comparable in quality to what you’d get in a mic costing three times as much.
The successor to our highly popular iRig Mic, iRig Mic HD features sturdy metal-body construction and a convenient handheld form factor. It can also be mounted on a standard mic stand, using the included clip, thus giving it additional utility.
The mic comes with a generous selection of free apps and software, covering vocal processing, field recording, guitar and bass multi-effects and more; assuring that you can start recording right out of the box.
Sure, there are lots of other mics out there, but none can match the combination of sound quality, multiplatform compatibility, versatility and bang for the buck that you get with iRig Mic HD.
iRig Mic HD Micro USB connector
Perhaps the most significant feature that iRig Mic HD has that the original iRig Mic didn’t, is a digital signal path into your device. When you speak or sing or record any audio into iRig Mic HD, the sound first goes through a high-definition, audiophile grade preamp, and then is converted to digital with a 24-bit analog-to-digital converter.
From that point on, your audio never leaves the digital realm as it’s sent to your mobile device or computer. As a result, you always get a super-accurate recording, with no added noise, and no sonic degradation. You can even use iRig Mic HD for 48 kHz high-resolution recording projects.
It’s all on the cable
One of the secrets to iRig Mic HD’s wide compatibility is its selection of detachable cables. The mic itself comes with a Lightning Connector cable and a USB cable, which covers you for Apple recent generations of iPhone, iPad and iPod touche, and a USB cable for connecting to your Mac. If you have an older 30-pin iOS device, you can easily order a cable from the IK Online Store, and be up and running in no time.
