Excellent little micI purchased this little mic as a simple replacement for the mic on my Android phone. It works great! It limits the background noise so conversations can be easily heard. The headphone jack works very well and the collar on the plug makes it friendly to phone protectors. I haven't tried recording with it but for what I need, it's an excellent choice.

A Handy Mic To OwnThe iRig MicCast performs very well. I am impressed with the quality sound I get from the MicCast. I write songs and when an idea comes to me I just plug the MicCast into the iPhone, hit record and sing or speak an idea and this way I don't lose the song idea! I would recommend this to any musician/songwriter. The reason for the 4.5 rating was the mic I received had a small dent I the mic screen.

Super little micI purchased the iRig micCast just as a supplemental mic for my android phone to use for conference calls. The Lo/Hi switch is perfect for my noisy office. Put it on "Lo" and most background noise is cut out. It picks up voice great with no echo or other sound quality issues. I haven't used it for recording but for voice it's a great purchase.

A+ Timesaver & UpgradePurchased this mic to solve recording voice-overs in a pinch, as I could get by using the built in microphone on the iPad4 and iPhone4, but struggled to get a clear recording without noise and without distorting the mic because of the preset levels in the apps I was using. The mic is smaller than you think it would be upon unboxing, also is completely plastic and cheap feeling, but this should be expected given the price and application. Using the iRig, the audio quality is improved over the original microphone within both devices, sporting a low noise level and decent SPL handling. The app that is recommended with this device is the iRig Recorder, kind of a clunky, rough, hashed out app, with little user customization. The app is free, and to export recordings via email, a user is required to register (for free). Any other use in the app other than recording or exporting via email, requires in-app purchases.
