Zoom iQ6 XY Stereo Microphone

XY stereo recording microphone for iOS with lighting connector
MFR# ZIQ6

Product Description

Turn your iOS device into a field recorder by plugging in Zoom iQ6 XY Stereo Microphone, a stereo X/Y microphone with a Lightning connector small enough to slip into your pocket. Capture the sound of concerts, interviews, meetings and lectures with precision and full fidelity, then share your creations with the world.

The compact and lightweight iQ6 allows you to create high-quality recordings wherever you go. Whether it's a podcast on the fly, an impromptu concert, or a sound effect you want to incorporate into your next video, you can count on your iQ6 to capture the moment with superior audio.

The iQ6 features two high quality unidirectional condenser microphones in an X/Y configuration—the same ones used in the world-famous H4n Handy Recorder. X/Y stereo recording is a great way to cover a wide area while still capturing sound sources in the center with clarity and definition. You can even change the mic angle from 90 degrees for a tightly focused image to 120 degrees for immersive wide-angle stereo. (US Patent 8184815)

The iQ6's large analog-type MIC GAIN wheel and three-segment level LEDs ensure that you'll always get great audio in every environment—from quiet meetings to loud concerts—with crystal clarity and no signal overload.

The iQ6's dedicated headphone jack—which doubles as a line output—enables direct monitoring during both recording and playback.

The iQ6 comes with an extended Lightning connector and removable spacer that allows it to be used with most iPhone, iPad, and iPod cases. Simply plug your iQ6 in and start making great-sounding stereo recordings!

Zoom's Handy Recorder app, available for free from the iTunes App Store, provides a wealth of tools for your iQ6 and iOS device. In addition to offering onscreen level metering, it enables you to set the iQ6 headphone volume, as well as adding an automatic recording function—useful for capturing the sound of meetings, speeches, and other situations where you don't want to miss a thing. Choose linear PCM format for the highest quality sound or AAC format to conserve storage space, then apply compression, EQ, and reverb effects to your recordings. Handy Recorder even allows you to email your files to friends and to upload them to SoundCloud for sharing with the world.

Take your creations to a whole new level with the iQ6. It works not only with Apple's Voice Memo and Garageband, but with most apps that support input from an external microphone. Use the iQ6 with voice recognition apps to add high-quality audio; with streaming apps to broadcast live performances; and with music apps to record vocals and instruments in full range stereo.

I would like to thank VK for the wonderful sales assistance, service and prices. This was my first purchase with you and it won't be my last. I only wish I'd discovered you years ago!

I had two Grammy wins this year - Ray LaMontagne & Carolina Chocolate Drops. Both made with help from Vintage King!

In almost 20 years in Pro audio buying, never did I receive a unit so well packed and exactly as described. Works flawlessly. The whole process has been so smooth. I will never hesitate to do business with you guys in the future and will recommend you to everyone I know.

This was my first experience buying something from Vintage King (although I surf the "used" categories on the website frequently!), and, despite being on the other side of the world, I had absolutely no trouble and everything went very smoothly.
Phil T.
The speed of delivery exceeded my expectations! I was VERY pleased that my shipment arrived in time for a scheduled vocal tracking session. The packing insured that my order arrived safely. And the sales staff responded quickly to questions regarding the product.

My experience with Vintage King was excellent. The order was here fast considering it was out of stock. The sales person had SKB send it to me directly and I couldn't have been more pleased.
Michael D.
From the minute I placed my order I was kept well-informed through each step in your process. Even though I was buying a comparatively modest piece of gear, your attention to detail made me feel like I was purchasing a six-figure mixing desk.
Thomas W.
I am a new customer of yours. You guys provided me the absolute best deals in ordering all the equipment to power my brand new recording studio. Your customer service is amazing and i will always deal with you from here on out.
