iRig Mic HD
The first handheld digital microphone for everyone
Put the power of superior digital audio performance in the palm of your hand
iRig Mic HD is the first affordable high-quality handheld digital condenser mic for singers, podcasters, online radio broadcasters, journalists, videographers, home studio enthusiasts and anyone else who needs to record high-definition digital audio on the go. Talk about versatile. And you can connect it directly to your iPhone, iPad, iPod touch or your Mac/PC! How’s that for convenience?
But versatility is just one of iRig Mic HD’s many attributes. iRig Mic HD sports a 24-bit audiophile-grade A/D converter, a 44.1/48 kHz sampling rate and a low-noise/high-definition pre-amp. You can count on iRig Mic HD to give you professional quality results, anytime and anywhere. It can handle the most demanding professional needs in the field or in the studio and is comparable in quality to what you'd get in a mic that costs three times as much.
The successor to our highly popular iRig Mic, iRig Mic HD features a sturdy metal body construction and an ergonomic handheld form factor that allows for hours of comfortable recording and performance. It can also be mounted on a standard mic stand using the included clip — How's that for versatility?
And since we know you want to look good while you're recording and performing, iRig Mic HD comes in two eye-catching colourways: You can buy it in black or silver version.
And with iRig MIC HD you'll be able to record right out of the box thanks to its generous assortment of free apps and software — the largest collection included with any portable microphone. You get superior vocal processors, tools for field recording, guitar and bass effects (try them on your vocal recordings for a sound you'll never forget) and a whole lot more.
Sure, there are many other mics out there, but none can match the powerful combination of high-definition sound, multiplatform compatibility, versatility and "bang for your buck" price that you get with iRig Mic HD.

Superior digital sound quality
The most significant feature that iRig Mic HD has that the original iRig Mic didn’t is a digital signal path into your device. iRig Mic HD plugs directly into the digital port on your device or the USB port on your computer. When you speak, sing or record any audio into iRig Mic HD the sound first goes through a high-definition, audiophile grade preamp and then is converted to a digital signal with a 24-bit analog-to-digital converter.
From that point on your audio never leaves the digital realm, as it's sent to your mobile device or computer. This might sound overly technical, so let's make it simple: The result is an extremely accurate recording, with no added noise, and no sonic degradation. iRig Mic HD's sound quality is so good that you can even use it for 48 kHz high-resolution recording projects.
Universal compatibility for all your iOS devices and computers
The secret to iRig Mic HD’s broad compatibility is its selection of included detachable cables. The mic comes with a Lightning connector cable and a USB cable. This covers you for the latest generation of iPhone, iPad and iPod touch devices, and it also gives you the flexibility to connect directly to your Mac or PC. If you have an older 30-pin iOS device, you can easily order a cable from the IK Online Store, and you'll be up and running in no time.
iRig MIC HD comes with a full suite of apps that let you start processing and editing vocals (or any other audio source) straight out of the box. iPhone, iPad and iPod touch users will enjoy: VocaLive FREE*, a real-time vocal effects processing and multitrack recorder app. iRig Recorder FREE*, a professional field recording and audio processing app. And AmpliTube FREE*, a recording and studio app that features stunningly realistic virtual models of some of the most desirable amps, cabinets and stompboxes of all time. iRig Mic HD also comes with the free version of AmpliTube for Mac and PC and many other powerful IK apps. No other microphone comes with such a wide variety of useful apps and software. And that means you'll spend more time doing what you love: performing and recording music.
With iRig Mic HD now anyone can now afford a professional-quality handheld digital condenser microphone for recording and performing on the go.
