For the iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch.
The Zoom iQ5 is a high-quality mid-side stereo condenser mic, perfect for recording music and compact enough to be slipped into your pocket. Simply connect it to the Lightning connector of your iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch and get ready to do some serious stereo recording any time, any place.
Versatility For Audio And Video
The iQ5 employs a unique rotating mechanism that enables audio recording with correct left-right stereo orientation whether used vertically or horizontally. Use it in standard “audio” position or simply rotate it to the “video” position in order to record video with the attached iPhone, iPad, or iPod Touch held horizontally.
Mid-Side Stereo Made Easy
Mid-side recording makes it easy for anyone to record in realistic (and fully mono-compatible) stereo. The iQ5 contains two microphone elements: a directional “mid” mic that captures audio coming from in front, and a bidirectional “side” mic that covers ambient signal.
Stereo width can be customized to the precise recording situation: Set it to 90° to hone in on an individual sound, or 120° for a wider image that includes the surrounding ambience and reverberation. For even more control, record the mid and side mic signals as raw MS data so that you can later adjust the stereo width from 30° to 150° with Zoom's free Handy Recorder iOS app
Control + Monitor
Precision gain control
The iQ5 makes it easy to capture great sound no matter what type of material you’re recording. Dial in the exact input level you need with the analog-type MIC GAIN wheel, choose Auto Gain to automatically set the perfect recording level, or use the Limiter setting to avoid overloads.
Headphone monitoring
The iQ5's dedicated headphone jack enables direct monitoring during both recording and playback.
The Zoom Handy Recorder App
Zoom's free Handy Recorder app is specially designed for use with the iQ5. Simply download it from the App Store and install it on your iOS devices. The Handy Recorder app allows you to record in linear PCM (WAV) 16-bit/44.1kHz format for CD-quality audio that accurately captures the full subtlety of acoustic instruments and spaces. When you need to conserve storage space for long recordings, you can instead record in compressed AAC format for smaller file sizes and faster data transfer.
Automatic recording
The Handy Recorder's automatic recording function can be used to start and stop recording when a preset level is reached—convenient when recording meetings or speeches and in other situations when you want to capture sound only when it rises above a certain level.
