What does that have to do with Blue and their mic? 

Blue is one of the best microphone manufacturers on the planet.  Their Kiwi mic is my favorite instrument microphone of all time.  I’m sure this thing sounds great.

No, it doesn’t play nice with any gen Touch or iPhone. Something about the pin connectors not being the same/allowing for mike hookup. Apparently some company custom modded another mike that would work, but I don’t know off the top of my head who.

I’d love a mic that works with my iPhone for recording street noise, environments, etc… If anybody knows, please email me at adam at

with rumors about iphone 2.2 having input support for the headset jack, this may be moot, but if there is an alternative or a plug in source, that’d be great.  post it.
