Item Description


A revolution in stereo microphones for the iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch.

The Zoom iQ5 is a high-quality mid-side stereo condenser mic, perfect for recording music and compact enough to be slipped into your pocket.

Simply connect it to the Lightning connector of your iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch and get ready to do some serious stereo recording any time, any place.

Use it vertically or use it horizontally

The iQ5 employs a unique rotating mechanism that enables audio recording with correct left-right stereo orientation whether used vertically or horizontally. Use it in standard "audio" position or simply rotate it to the "video" position in order to record video with the attached iPhone, iPad or iPod touch held horizontally.

Mid-side recording made easy

Mid-side recording makes it easy for anyone to record in realistic (and fully mono-compatible) stereo. The iQ5 actually contains two microphone elements: a directional "mid" mic that captures audio coming from in front and a bidirectional "side" mic that covers ambient signal. Stereo width can be set to 90° or 120° according to the recording situation, or you can opt to record the mid and side mic signals as RAW data and then use Zoom's Handy Recorder iOS app to adjust the stereo width from 30o to 150o. This allows you to go from a tight sound focused on a single instrument to a wide image that includes the surrounding ambience and reverberation. The app even allows you to collapse the signal into phase-coherent mono, which is great for interviews, narration and other voice recordings.
