Rode iXY for Lightning Unboxing and initial recording test.

rode-iXY-L

The last unboxing/test/review for today is the Rode iXY Stereo microphone for Apple Lightning devices.

I bought the original iXY for the Apple 30pin dock connector and I have used it several times with the optional Rode SmartGrip to mount it on top of my DSLR while recording in the field.

The fact that both iXY devices can record at 96000Hz is pretty damn impressive. (That’s double CD quality to the man on the street)

Anyway here is the Unboxing Video and the sound clip recorded using the iXY with my iPhone 5S and the RodeRec App
