You can now achieve high quality recordings on your iPod player. By connecting your own external microphone via the Belkin Universal Microphone Adapter to your iPod, recordings of your conversations, lectures, interviews, or memos will be cleaner and clearer. You can also listen to these recordings with your headphones or powered speakers. This Adapter will begin shipping on March 17 in North America. The Belkin Universal Microphone Adapter (F8E478) carries a suggested retail price of US$39.99.
The Universal Microphone Adapter connects to your iPod and to any audio microphone with a 3.5mm plug. You can use the iPod player’s abundant storage capacity to store hundreds of hours of audio, and easily review your audio notes using the built-in 3.5mm jack with headphones or your computer. Copy recordings to your computer for easy storage, editing, or to send in e-mail.
The Universal Microphone Adapter is an alternative to another Belkin recording device, the Voice Recorder for iPod, which offers a built-in microphone and speaker.
“We listened to feedback from our customers who wanted a better way to record their lectures and interviews,” notes Joe Jaconi, Sr. Business Unit Manager in the press release. “This Universal Microphone Adapter gives iPod users a superb way to both record and play these back.”
