IK Multimedia is now shipping iRig Mic Lav, the compact, chainable lavalier microphone with built-in monitoring for iPhone, iPad, iPod touch and Android. features a high-quality omnidirectional condenser capsule, a foam pop shield, a durable secure mounting clip, on-board monitoring output and a generous cable length. It has a chainable input jack for using two mics with one device and a comprehensive arsenal of convenient features all bundled into a rugged, durable and roadworthy lavalier microphone that can be used with virtually all mobile devices.

iRig Mic Lav is a compact microphone designed to meet the demands of broadcast professionals – it sports an omnidirectional condenser capsule with a 30Hz – 16kHz frequency range that captures audio from all directions. Its included foam pop filter eliminates vocal plosives, wind noises and other undesired sounds. It can be easily mounted on a t-shirt, lapel or other material thanks to its durable mounting clip. And its 150cm/66″ cable provides plenty of length to work with while recording in the field.

Among the major brands, iRig Mic Lav is the first mobile lavalier microphone to offer on-board monitoring. It comes with a combo 1/8″ TRRS port that can be used to output audio to a pair of headphones. Just set the toggle switch next to the port to “monitor” and then they can plug in their favorite pair of headphones to start monitoring.

In addition, you can use two of them with one device to record two audio sources simultaneously, such as a broadcast interview.  No additional hardware is required. iRig Mic Lav includes a dual-purpose 1/8″ TRRS input jack that can be used to connect a second iRig Mic Lav or headphones for monitoring. Users simply set the toggle switch to “input” and then plug a second iRig Mic Lav in to record with two microphones. To monitor a dual iRig Mic Lav setup, users simply need to set the switch on the second iRig Mic Lav’s jack to “monitor” and then insert their preferred headphones.

iRig Mic Lav is ready to go right out of the box thanks to its powerful suite of included apps. iRig Recorder for iPhone, iPad and Android are straightforward audio capture apps that are great for everyone from journalists who need to make recordings in the field to podcasters who want to broadcast while on the go, and everyone in between. VocaLive is an expandable, powerful effects processor and multi-track recording app that’s perfect for adding a creative touch to recordings. Mic Room is a powerful and easy-to-use microphone modeling app for iPhone or iPad. EZ Voice for iPhone, iPad and Android are streamlined and easy-to-use apps that make it easy to practice and record over any song stored in the device music library.

Another use for iRig Mic Lav is making small group presentations – when used with EZ Voice or VocaLive and a portable powered speaker, like iLoud, iRig Mic Lav makes a great “hands-free” portable PA that fits in a briefcase for trade shows and small group gatherings. iRig Mic Lav is now shipping and available from music and electronics retailers worldwide, and from the IK online store, for only $49.99 (excluding taxes).  iRig Mic Lav 2 Pack, a bundle that comes with two iRig Mic Lav units, is also available for preorder for just $79.99 (excluding taxes) and will be available in November.
