Ordered: Apogee MiC 96k
This purchase should get to me beginning September 2014. I intend to assess it against the IK iRig HD microphone which I already own and really like - because it's digital and jacks straight into the Lightning connector of a modern iOS device.
Ultimately I am looking to ditch my field recorders in favour of iOS based solution(s) - learning to love iOS Voice Memos. Having said that, I'm not aware of any binaural recording mic pair that will jack straight into a Lightning port ... #StealThisIdea
I haven't received the MiC yet, but it looks like it ships with a pretty short lightning cable. Since I've not yet found a brand of Lightning extension cable that works with a digital mic, the best bet with the Apogee MiC is to get the 3 metre cable for location sound recording and interview situations.
