Blue Upgrades the Mikey

first_imgBlue Microphones announced the second generation Mikey iPod/iPod Touch/iPhone microphone back in June, but it seems to have been delayed several months. We’ll it’s here now–just about. On Monday the 15th, you’ll be able to get Mikey 2G at Amazon or Apple.com for $79.99. The original earned a lot of fans as a plug-and-play mic for Apple devices that was able to record CD-quality sound. Now the second generation upgrades the first with improved circuitry for better recording at higher volumes. It also now features a 3.5mm line-input for direct recording from sources like a guitar or mixer.The Mikey 2G offers a 230-degree range of adjustability with seven positions. That means you can position it perfectly for whatever you’re recording: a lecture, voice notes, live music, interviews, or anything else. It also now comes with a carrying case. Like the original, it offers stereo condenser capsules and three selectable gain settings. Note that it doesn’t work with the iPad or iPhone 4, which use different input technology. Blue says an updated version is coming. But when?  AdChoices广告last_img
