The Guardian newspaper and their Sunday edition, The Observer, have published their eagerly awaited round-up of "Thirty of the Best Gadgets under £30". Covering everything from headphones, kettles, chargers and gaming controllers, writer Kit Buchan, naturally, couldn't leave out iRig Mic Cast:
"The iRig Mic Cast is a godsend for on-the-hoof interviewers and smartphone film‑makers."
iRig Mic Cast is the ultra-compact, portable voice recording microphone designed specifically for recording podcasts, interviews, lectures, voice memos, speeches and more. It provides a pocket-sized voice recording solution with crystal-clear audio quality and features a tight unidirectional pickup pattern that minimizes background noise, making it ideal for single-source audio recording.
Previously, The Guardian's Jack Schofield has recommended iRig Mic Cast in his popular "Ask Jack" column for getting better sound quality on smartphones:
"Personally, I’d lean towards the IK Multimedia iRig Mic Cast based solely on its reputation in the Apple market... If you had an iPhone, you could just buy an IK Multimedia iRig Mic Cast, plug it in, and expect it to work."
