Hey Mikey, I like it, but not at that price

Blue Microphones, maker of the same Snowball USB microphone we use at the Appeal-Democrat, has released a new microphone for the iPhone and iPod Touch called Mikey. It’s a strong, professional sounding microphone that is a great addition for a mobile recording setup. The microphone features a 1/8″ line-in jack to plug in a different microphone.

My only problem so far is the price. The Snowball for the desktop comes in at $99, while Mikey comes in only $20 less at $79. That’s almost the cost of a new iPhone 3G with a two-year contract. Still, if you do a lot of portable recording, this could be a good option to use in the field.
