Zoom iQ6 iOS Lightning X/Y Microphone

The iQ6 Stereo X/Y Microphone from Zoom turns your iOS device with Lightning connector into a field recorder for capturing the sounds of concerts, interviews, meetings, lectures and more, at up to 16-bit/48kHz resolution. The microphone uses the same two, high-quality, unidirectional condenser mics found in the popular H4n recorder, allowing your recordings to cover a wide area, while still capturing sound sources in the center with clarity and definition. The X/Y microphones can be set at two different angles, 90 degrees for a tightly focused image, or 120 degrees for a more immersive wide-angle stereo. The input gain can be adjusted using the large, mic gain wheel on the front of the unit, while you monitor your levels using the 3-segment LED. 

Capture the Moment

The compact and lightweight iQ6 allows you to create high-quality recordings wherever you go. Whether it's a podcast on the fly, an impromptu concert, or a sound effect you want to incorporate into your next video, you can count on your iQ6 to capture the moment with superior audio.

Microphone In, Headphone Out

The iQ6's large analog-type MIC GAIN wheel and three-segment level LEDs ensure that you'll always get great audio in every environment—from quiet meetings to loud concerts—with crystal clarity and no signal overload.

The iQ6's dedicated headphone jack—which doubles as a line output—enables direct monitoring during both recording and playback

Extended Connector, Removable Spacer

The iQ6 comes with an extended Lightning connector and removable spacer that allows it to be used with most iPhone, iPad, and iPod cases. Simply plug your iQ6 in and start making great-sounding stereo recordings!

Zoom Handy Recorder App

Zoom's Handy Recorder app, available for free from the iTunes App Store, provides an assortment of tools for your iQ6 and iOS device. In addition to offering onscreen level metering, it enables you to set the iQ6 headphone volume, as well as adding an automatic recording function-handy for capturing the sound of meetings, speeches, and other situations. Choose linear PCM format for the highest quality sound or AAC format to conserve storage space, then apply compression, EQ and reverb effects to your recordings. Handy Recorder even allows you to email your files to friends and to upload them to SoundCloud for sharing with the world.
