IK Multimedia announced iRig Mic HD 2, a handheld, high-resolution USB digital microphone for iPhone, iPad, Mac and PC. Ideal for recording vocals, interviews, podcasts, instruments and more, the new iRig Mic HD 2 combines an improved condenser capsule in a handheld microphone with integrated headphone output and a USB interface, supporting high resolution audio recording with improved 24-bit/96kHz converters.

The new iRig Mic HD 2 is the successor to the highly acclaimed iRig Mic HD, which IK Multimedia introduced already in 2014. After reviewing what could be improved, the new iRig Mic HD 2 now offers improved high-quality 24-bit converters with sample rates up to 96kHz, a new low noise preamp, a high-quality gold-sputtered electret condenser capsule for exceptional frequency and transient response and an onboard dedicated headphone output with volume control for direct signal monitoring.

This makes the iRig Mic HD 2 the only handheld microphone and recording solution with high-resolution digital audio support, in a configuration that's ideal for singers, musicians, interviewers, broadcasters, presenters, podcasters, and vloggers who are looking to capture pristine mobile recordings anywhere with remarkable ease and at an affordable price. The iRig Mic HD 2 comes with all the cables and accessories needed in a variety of situations, as well as a convenient table tripod for use during interviews, calls or video conferences.

Both in the studio and on the go, iRig Mic HD 2 becomes a comprehensive tool for boosting the quality of audio content creation with an integrated low-noise preamp that provides an optimal gain range while the gold-sputtered condenser capsule ensures clarity and accuracy over a frequency spectrum of 20 Hz - 20 kHz (-3 dB) making sure all the tiniest details of the sound source are faithfully captured in recordings.

Able to withstand a maximum sound pressure of 120dB, iRig Mic HD 2 provides a high level of performance and quality even when recording loud sources, while the cardioid pickup pattern will help reject sounds coming from the rear of the microphone.

iRig Mic HD 2 features a versatile, integrated headphone output with volume control that can be used for monitoring the audio signal during recording or for listening to high-resolution music - including on the iPhone 7. The output can also come in handy for sending the audio signal to an external device like another recorder, a mixer or a PA system.

The improved iRig Mic HD 2 was designed to work flawlessly with the latest generation of iPhone, iPad and iPod touch devices as well as with Macs and PCs. It comes with a Lightning connector cable, a USB cable and extra accessories like a convenient table tripod, a sleek carrying pouch, a mic stand clip and a handy 5/8" to 3/8" thread adapter. It also comes with downloadable versions of Mac and PC software including Ableton Live Lite, a Digital Audio Workstation application; T-RackS Classic collection of audio processing plug-ins; and Mic Room, with incredibly realistic virtual models of some of the most desirable microphones of all time. Also included are iOS apps such as the Mic Pack for VocaLive, that adds a collection of virtual microphone models to the real-time vocal effects processing and multitrack recorder app; and Pro Bundle for iRig Recorder, which adds indispensable processing like equalization and compression to the pro-audio recording and editing app with video.

iRig Mic HD 2 can be preordered now at just $/€129.99 (price excluding taxes) and will be available for shipping in September 2017.
