Zoom iQ7. This compact yet full-featured mid-side stereo condenser mic
is perfect for capturing music as well as video with outstanding audio.
With the iQ7, you can create great-sounding recordings on your iPhone,
iPad and iPod Touch any time, any place.

The iQ7 offers advanced features that allow you to create extraordinary
stereo recordings every time. A large front-facing MIC GAIN knob allows
you to easily set the optimum input level, and three-segment level LED
level meters ensure clean, crisp sound with no signal overload.
In addition, a dedicated headphone jack—which doubles as a line

Perfect Left-Right Every Time
The iQ7's rotating mechanism ensures correct left-right stereo
orientation whether you're creating audio-only recordings or capturing
audio for your video.
Mid-side is an advanced recording technique that allows the width of the
stereo image to be varied, even in post-production. The two microphone
elements in the iQ7 include a directional "mid" mic that captures signal
coming from directly in front of your iOS device, and a bidirectional
"side" mic that captures the audio coming from both sides.
A three-way switch allows you to select between 90° (to focus on sounds
coming from the center) and 120° (for a wider image that includes
ambience and room signal). A third setting, labeled "M-S," enables you
record the audio "raw" and adjust its stereo width afterwards, using
Zoom's free downloadable Handy Recorder iOS app.
The iQ7 works with all Lightning-equipped iOS devices. It comes with an
extended Lightning connector and a removable spacer for compatibility
with most iPhone, iPad and iPod cases. Leave your case on and start
* Some cases might prevent connection even when the case adjuster is removed.

adds a wealth of audio tools to your iOS device. Overdub to the stereo
recordings created with your iQ7. Perform fine editing functions in its
waveform display. Save your files in either linear PCM or AAC file

further enhance the sound. Handy Recorder even allows you to email the
audio you create and to upload it to SoundCloud for sharing with the

Amplify Your Creativity
The iQ7 is compatible with most iOS apps that support input from an
external microphone, including Apple's Voice Memo and Garageband, as
well as other popular music recording, voice recognition and streaming
apps. Apps that provide support for multiple sampling rates—such as
Handy Recorder—work great too, allowing you to choose between 44.1 and
48kHz recording for optimum audio quality.
WSU-1 Universal Windscreen
The optional WSU-1 Universal Windscreen reduces wind noise while
remaining acoustically transparent. Not only with the iQ7, but it can be
