Blue's Mikey Digital for iPhone gets Lightning Connector

Blue announced the immediate availability of a Lightning connector version of its popular Mikey Digital microphone for the iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch on Thursday. Like its 30-pin Dock Connector predecessor, the Lightning Mikey Digital lets users capture higher quality audio compared to their iPhone or iPad's built-in microphone.

The Mikey Digital includes two custom-tuned condenser microphones, built-in sensitivity control, gain control, an LED clipping indicator, a hinged base that lets it rotate 230 degrees, and a reversible connector so it can face forward or backward. It also includes a 3.5mm stereo input for recording from external sources, and a passthrough USB connector so you can charge your iPhone or iPad while recording.

The Mikey Digital with Lightning connector is priced at US$99.99 and is available at the Blue website and through other retailers.
