This means you can make higher quality recordings than with the built-in mono microphone on your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch and also comparable mobile microphones that only produce a true stereo sound when held in portrait mode. All of this while all the on-board controls remains easily accessible and properly positioned for maximum comfort.
