Superior digital sound quality
iRig Mic HD 2 delivers incredible performance giving you the ability to record your instruments or vocal performances with 24-bit resolution and sample rates up to 96kHz. It utilizes a high-quality, gold-sputtered electret condenser capsule that ensures exceptional transient and frequency response (20 Hz - 20 kHz, -3 dB) along with enhanced durability, and the integrated low-noise preamp lets you dial in just the right amount of gain for the optimum signal level.
Able to withstand a maximum sound pressure of 125dB, iRig Mic HD 2 will stand up to recording even very loud sources and the cardioid pickup pattern will help reject unwanted sounds from back side of the microphone.
This makes it perfect for a multitude of applications where audio quality is paramount along with versatility and freedom of movement. Both in the studio and on the go, iRig Mic HD 2 is much more than just a digital USB microphone; it is a comprehensive tool for boosting your creativity and the quality of your audio content with all the convenience of a handheld form factor.

This can also come in handy to send the signal out to an external device like another recorder, a mixer or a PA system.
Compatibility for all your iOS devices and computers
Key to iRig Mic HD 2’s broad compatibility is its selection of included detachable cables. The mic comes with a Lightning connector cable and a USB cable.
