Apple’s iPad is a portable device which impresses with an attractive design and plenty of useful features. It offers a great built-in microphone which uses the same technology as the iPod Touch’s microphone. Because of that the various iPod Touch microphones available on the market can also be used on the iPad. Even if the iPad comes with a built-in microphone there are still reasons why an external microphone would be useful. First of all, you should keep in mind that an external microphone successfully eliminates more background noise than the built in mic. Secondly, if you want to have a private conversation on your iPad in a populated room then a headphone with microphone is a necessity. Moreover, some of the microphones available feature clips which allow you to move around your iPad without carrying the device with you. If you’re getting interested in the subject, you should check out the various iPad microphones that I’ve discovered on the market.
My first suggestion is the Mini Capsule microphone which is the cheapest mini mic available on the market. Like any other microphone, this accessory is easy to store. To use it you will have to simply plug it in (no additional software is necessary). This microphone doesn’t need additional batteries because it uses the iPad’s power supply. The only downside is that it uses the headphone jack, so you won’t be able to use earphones in the same time. The price of this microphone is $23.39.
Another choice is represented by the JBuds J3M high end headphones with in-line microphone which come with a sleek design. They provide high quality sound including high notes and deep low bass. To use these headphones you need to simply plug them into the headphone jack of your iPad and start listening to music or handling Skype conversations. The in-line microphone allows you to record your thoughts and enable apps. With its help you can also play and stop music without touching your device. The in-ear tips are soft and comfortable to wear for a long time. If you want to purchase this accessory you will have to pay around $69.95.
The MXL Tempo USB Condenser microphone should also be on your list because it’s a light mic compatible with your iPad. It allows you to record vocals and other sounds after you connect it via the iPad camera kit adapter. You can use it over various Internet communication systems including Skype, Google Talk, ooVoo and iChat. This microphone can be used for dictations and legal depositions.
These are only a few of the iPad microphones that you can find on the market. The VeriCorder Directional mini microphone is another option.
