A new Lightning-connected microphone for iPhone, iPod and iPad touch is designed for the users to want professional-quality recording of audio using applications such as Apple's Camera and GarageBand, but most others as well.

The launch of Zoom iQ5 on was timed to coincide with the trade show by National Association of Music Merchants.  The device is selling for $99.99, and in its mid-size configuration it includes two microphones, with recording modes in portrait and landscape.

Users can start audio recording simply by handling small circular attachments on the top of the device.  Right and left channels are clearly labeled. Audio can be recorded in fields of 90- or 120-degrees. The degree can be adjusted with a turn of the switch on the microphone.

The iQ5 microphone can record 16-bit/44.1kHz sound with an analog-type microphone wheel which allows precise adjustment of levels of input. The Lightning accessory has three auto-gain levels, automatic recording, built-in timing, and a headphone jack.

The device is charged through a microUSB port and is available in black or white, to match Apple’s devices it is supporting.

Zoom has its own recording app, HandyRecorder, but the iQ5 is compatible with Apple's apps GarageBand, and Camera and other popular apps for audio and video streaming.

The iQ5 works with iPhone, iPad or iPod touch devices which have a Lightning connector that is running iOS 6 or higher. It is available at resellers like B&H.
