    I'm considering purchasing the Shure C606WD external microphone to use with my iphone 4. Has anyone here used this mic with an iphone 4 and can recommend it. Thanks!

    Watch out, read this:


    Very nice unit, but doesn't seem to work with iPhone 4. I suspect it requires more power than the iPhone delivers through the mini-jack. It would be nice if they specified that the mic isn't for iPhone. I'm still looking for an inexpensive directional mic for the iPhone.

    The iPhone 4 requires a special adapter to use external mics. Check out KVconnection.com This mic may NOT work even with their adapter, but they will know if it's compatible.

    You'll need something like a KVConnection adapter so that the condenser mic's TRS (tip ring sleeve) plug will adapt correctly to the inputs on the iPhone (which uses a TRRS plug (tip ring ring sleeve—stereo headphones and mic connection).
