A revolution in stereo microphones for the iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch.

The Zoom iQ5 is a high-quality mid-side stereo condenser mic, perfect for recording music and compact enough to be slipped into your pocket. Simply connect it to the Lightning connector of your iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch and get ready to do some serious stereo recording any time, any place.

Use it vertically or use it horizontally

The iQ5 employs a unique rotating mechanism that enables audio recording with correct left-right stereo orientation whether used vertically or horizontally. Use it in standard "audio" position or simply rotate it to the "video" position in order to record video with the attached iPhone, iPad or iPod touch held horizontally.


Mid-side recording made easy

Mid-side recording makes it easy for anyone to record in realistic (and fully mono-compatible) stereo. The iQ5 actually contains two microphone elements: a directional "mid" mic that captures audio coming from in front and a bidirectional "side" mic that covers ambient signal. Stereo width can be set to 90° or 120° according to the recording situation, or you can opt to record the mid and side mic signals as RAW data and then use Zoom's Handy Recorder iOS app to adjust the stereo width from 30o to 150o. This allows you to go from a tight sound focused on a single instrument to a wide image that includes the surrounding ambience and reverberation. The app even allows you to collapse the signal into phase-coherent mono, which is great for interviews, narration and other voice recordings.


Precision gain control

The iQ5 makes it easy to get great sound no matter what kind of material you're recording. Its analog-type MIC GAIN wheel allows you to dial in the perfect amount of gain for any recording application. Or choose one of three Auto Gain presets (Concert / Solo / Meeting) to automatically set the recording level for any given situation. You can also use the iQ5's built-in Limiter to avoid input overloads.

Note: The Handy Recorder app is required to enable the Auto Gain function.


Check your sound on headphones

The iQ5 has a dedicated headphone jack that enables direct monitoring during recording and playback.


The Handy Recorder app

Zoom's free Handy Recorder app is specially designed for use with the iQ5. Simply download it from the App Store and install it on your iOS devices. The app allows you to record in linear PCM format for the highest quality sound, or in AAC format to conserve storage space. It also enables you to apply compression, EQ and reverb effects, as well as normalize and divide files. Using the Handy Recorder app, you can even upload files to the SoundCloud audio sharing site, so you can immediately share your recording with the world.


Superior audio

The Handy Recorder app allows you to record in linear PCM (WAV) 16-bit/44.1kHz format for CD-quality audio that accurately captures the full subtlety of acoustic instruments and spaces. When you need to conserve storage space for long recordings, you can instead record in compressed AAC format for smaller file sizes and faster data transfer.


Effects to shape the sound

The Handy Recorder effects presets enable you to easily shape and control your sound. Add reverb for extra richness, or dynamics processing to give performances more punch. Six-band EQ enables full tonal control, and there's also a normalization feature that allows you to increase the volume of your recordings to the maximum possible level.


File division

With the DIVIDE function, you can separate files into their important components. By deleting unnecessary sections, you can increase the amount of open space on your iOS device and extend the available recording time.


Automatic recording

The Handy Recorder's automatic recording function can be used to start and stop recording when a preset level is reached?convenient when recording meetings or speeches and in other situations when you want to capture sound only when it rises above a certain level.


Share your music on SoundCloud

The Handy Recorder app enables you to directly upload your recordings to "SoundCloud"and share your music with people around the world.


Use the iQ5 with other apps, too

The iQ5 can be used with most iOS apps that support audio input from an external microphone. For example, you can use it with the standard iOS Camera app to record high quality audio to go with your video and then use streaming apps to broadcast live performances. The iQ5 can also be used to record vocals and instruments when using music apps like Apple's GarageBand.
