Luckily, you no longer need to struggle to record crisp, clear audio on-the-go or on a budget. The iRig Mic Cast 2 is an affordable, pocket-sized microphone that easily attaches to your device and lets you sound your best anywhere, any time.

Capture noise-free audio
iRig Mic Cast 2 is a tiny mic with big sound. The sequel to IK Multimedia’s innovative iRig Mic Cast, it lets you record crystal clear speech anywhere using your iPhone, iPad or Android device. A new dual-capsule design lets you select front or rear pick-up patterns to reject off-axis noise whether you’re recording yourself or someone else. You can also select both at once, for an omnidirectional pattern that’s ideal for recording interviews and Q and A’s.
