Love the iQ5 mic !!!!!!

I've been using the iQ5 with my iPhones ever since the release of the iQ5, having owned every model of iPhone ever made I'm happy to report that my iQ5 works flawlessly with my new iPhone 7, I was a bit worried about compatibility with the iPhone 7 since Apple made changes to the lighting port with the 7.I use the iQ5 with my iPhone to record video of bands I'm in and record live video music events I attend, the sound produced by the iQ5 is simply amazing.The reviewer that stated the iQ5 was no better than the iPhone's mono mic is insane, PLEASE ignor that review !!!!!!!!I've even used the iQ5 in really really loud rock clubs and no distortion at all, I think the trick is to just leave the iQ5 set to Auto gain, even when the red LED is clipping I don't worry about it, the Auto setting for me has worked better than manually setting the gain in almost every case, even in super loud venues were the band is playing on 11,,,,, of course if your really super close the the main PA speakers your going to perhaps get some distortion, just use the iQ5 within a sensational distance from the FOH system and you'll be fine.Anyhow, I highly recommend the iQ5 for everything, works great for making a demo video of your band as well to get gigs.CheersDavyo

iPad supplemental microphone

I'll admit to more than a little skepticism when I purchased this. We provide marriage seminars at local churches and record them using an iPad Air. We had issues with the weakness and directionality of the organic iPad mike, particularly not picking up questions and comments from the audience. When we listened to the first video taken using the Zoom 1Q5, we were blown away with the difference in quality. Not only were we, as the facilitators/instructors crystal clear, but all the voices from behind also were crystal clear. We really needed an omnidirectional device for our purposes, and this one did the trick in spades. Added advantages are the fact that it is small and easy to carry, is powered by the iPad and doesn't require a separate power supply, and the "ball" mike can be turned to provide primary focus in whatever direction you need. I can't speak to frequency response, since we use it for ambient sound/voice recording, not music, but I suspect that a mike designed specifically for that might be best, but I haven't tried it out. All in all, I got every penny's worth of my investment. Short of giving it away at no cost, I can't see how you can get better value for your dollar.
