"This is a good mic."
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
I bough tv this blemished so I got a pretty good deal. I would recommend this microphone for anybody that wants to have a nice recording with their iPhone, iPad, or iPod. I used it the first time to read a book over FaceTime to my grandchildren it worked really nicely. It is really good quality and easy to use. It comes with an app which is quite intuitive and very effective in controlling the microphone. I really like it.
