What customers say about "Size & Weight"
Apogee MiC 96k Professional Quality Microphone for iPad, iPhone, and Mac
  • It's small and rugged for portability.
  • I was truly delighted with the size, ease price and performance.
  • This mic is just what i needed, i can going down the road, just turn on my mac pro and sing about things i see going down the highway.
  • To be perfect it just had to come with a little longer cord and a "scaled" gain selector...for eg a 1-2-3-4-5 levels selector would have been very helpful.
IK Multimedia iRig Mic Studio Microphone - Black
  • It's a nice portable size. Very little to no self noise. Pretty bright sounding.
  • Overall very nice portable mic. I like this size!
  • This mic really packs a ton of awesome qualities into a small package.
  • Compact, light weight, and very portable, this mic should always be in your bag if you are an amateur producer who works outside the studio.
  • Works very well with Garageband on Mac but size is not perfect for me.

What customers say about "Features"
Apogee MiC 96k Professional Quality Microphone for iPad, iPhone, and Mac
  • The sound is so good...you'll never have to worry about traveling from the comfort of your home studio.
  • I love this mic. I have used it to record several songs now. This mic is so easy to use with my macbook or iPhone.
  • Apogee got compact size, amazing sound quality, simplicity, and rugged/solid build all in one product.
  • Love my new mic. I use it to record voice over auditions. Sounds great. Travels so compactly.
  • The price looks a little high until you get it and start using it. I don't have obscenely expensive mics.
IK Multimedia iRig Mic Studio Microphone - Black
  • The direct connection to the iPhone is invaluable. I recommend it.
  • Worked great with my laptop, iphone, and ipad. Super easy to set up, and get going.
  • I got this Mic to use with the SMULE app on a Samsung S9 phone. So far I have been happy with recording quality.
  • I like this product and doing a review because I have used this microphone with IPhone XR on GarageBand and love the microphone!
  • The poor support for USB encoding on android and the price/quality ratio move this mic to a not great purchase option.
