Testing the Rode i-XLR Adapter for iPhone/iPad
September 8, 2016 Leave a comment
There are quite a number of audio accessories in the market for iOS devices…
I created an interactive image exploring them recently and now I need to add a new one to the mix. Welcome the Rode i-XLR.
As I mentioned at the end of the unboxing clip, I gave the iXLR to Cian McCormack who is a radio journalist as well as VJ and Mojo in RTÉ. Cian is regularly in the field and up against deadlines for radio packages and indeed Live Audio broadcasting so he of all people is well placed to put a new audio accessory through its paces and assess its audio quality. Here’s what he had to say…
Note the return audio to the headphone jack on the i-XLR depends on whether the App you are using supports the feature. Monitoring is also possible via the (soon to be obsolete) headphone socket on your iOS device.
This is the live broadcast (Using Tieline Report-IT Live) and pre-recorded clips Cian made for Morning Ireland using the i-XLR.
