If you're a journalist looking to supercharge interview recordings or simply an avid videographer unsatisfied with the iPhone's built-in microphone, the Zoom iQ5 can come in handy for seamlessly upgrading your auditory recordings to professional heights. Featuring a built-in Lightning adapter, the Zoom iQ5 plugs into the bottom of almost any Lightning-enabled iDevice and features three auto gain presets for optimal recordings even if you're a novice user.

While the Zoom iQ5 is easily adjusted via Zoom's Handy Recorder app, the capabilities extend far beyond proprietary controls to the iPhone's Camera and Garage Band apps for seamlessly recording and augmenting with ease. Able to be configured for portrait or landscape sound capturing, the Zoom iQ5 also features a dedicated 3.5mm headphone jack to ensure access isn't lost by the placement of the device on the phone or tablet.
