Get perfect levels every
time - with no distortion

Thanks to Auto Level Sensing technology and multiple gain settings, Mikey Digital protects your recordings from distortion. It can even handle input sources up to 130dB—that’s loud enough to turn the built-in mic on your phone to dust. Microphone shielding drastically reduces environment noise, and an onboard LED clipping indicator lets you know when to adjust the sensitivity so you can get flawless recording results. Whether you’re recording a piano recital from the back of an auditorium or a monster truck rally from the front row, Mikey Digital is always optimized for best-quality sound.

Capture sound
from any direction

Mikey Digital is a real head turner, with a unique 230-degree swivel head and reversible Lightning connector that lets you capture sound from any direction. All you have to do is direct the logo side of Mikey toward the sound source you want to capture.

Record instruments and other line-level sources

No recording idea can stump Mikey Digital. The high-performance 1/8" stereo input lets you record instruments such as guitar or bass, or line-level signals like a keyboard or DJ mixer. All with pristine audio quality, right on your iPhone or iPad. Whatever you need to record, Mikey Digital is your perfect companion.

Reviews

"Recording a full-and loud-rock band with the Mikey and an iPad 2 running GarageBand sounded remarkably clear and balanced. The mic's auto mode did a good job of keeping the clipping to a minimum, and quickly adjusted when a section suddenly jumped in volume."

"Blue Mics really hit the ball out of the park with the Mikey Digital... The important thing to remember with the Mikey Digital is that it is meant for portable recording, and for that purpose I think it does the job better than any portable mic I've tried so far."

"Given the size of the Blue Mikey Digital it offers a nice set of specs. The audio quality of an iOS device is improved vastly with this mic attached. We found it particularly great for recording the spoken word, so interviewers and students looking to record lectures will find it invaluable."
