I Am T-Pain microphone

Posted in music by Conner Flynn on February 14th, 2011

If you like Auto-Tuning, check this out. T-Pain has been using Auto-Tune so much that it’s become his trademark sound, and people have been capitalizing on this. The “I Am T-Pain Mic“ will let you sing into the microphone and it will play it back in T-Pain’s signature voice.

You can even record your singing and transfer the file to your PC if you want to. Is it worth $40? Well, I guess that depends on your taste in music.

IK Multimedia has begun shipping their iKlip iPad microphone stand. It’s a pretty basic accessory. It works by holding everything in place, keeping your hands free to play your instrument and concentrate. The price seems a bit high for something so basic, but I guess it’s worth it.

It will cost you $39.99. Have a good concert, practice or whatever, while keeping your hands firmly on your instrument.

iPod Touch with Camera and Microphone coming?According to a source at Wired, Apple’s Chinese contractors are already hard at work cranking out iPod touch units with cameras and microphones. If true, it would turn the smart media player almost into an iPhone.

According to their source, these new iPods will go on sale in “two to three months.” Could Apple eventually gain carrier independence with a 100% VoIP solution? Things could get very interesting starting in “two to three months.”

6-Channel Surround Sound headphonesThe Zalman ZM-RS6F+M 6-Channel Surround Sound Headphones + Microphone is as close as you will ever get to being that Lobot guy from Empire Strikes Back. I always wondered what that guy’s deal was. It was surround sound!

It’s from Brando. These Real Surround Sound Headphones produce a real surround field that is said to be comparable to a complete multi-channel speaker system as it will enhance directional, spatial, and realistic effects. Only $57.00 and you can be that guy! Now be honest fellow geeks, how many of you actually knew that character’s name?

Sanwa throat microphone

Sanwa throat microphoneThroat microphones have enjoyed some popularity with the military and police, but they haven’t caught on with civilians yet. The Sanwa Throat microphone might be the one that catches the average user’s attention. At least Sanwa hopes so. It doesn’t hurt that it looks like a high-tech choker. Just bedazzle it and the ladies will dig it. It isn’t threatening looking.

It puts the microphone against your throat, eliminating most of the background noise and working in conditions where the background noise is loud. No word on pricing or availability yet. Even though it looks silly, it could catch on in a big way.

E3 2008: WiiSpeak community mic for online group chatting
Another new Wii accessory fresh from E3 is the WiiSpeak community mic and speaker that will let you chat with friends and enemies online. It’s not like an Xbox 360 headset since the emphasis is on group chatting and since it resides not on your head but on top of your TV. It will come bundled with Animal Crossing City Folk and will be out later this year. Pretty cool no? I’m not sure how it will filter out game sounds and such, but it must be pretty good.

Bluetooth microphone dental insert
Here’s something you don’t see everyday. The Bluetooth Dental Insert Microphone is described as the “ultimate bluetooth handsfree”. It’s a super small microphone packaged with solar panel and battery to provide the most portable unit yet. The composite resin filling is designed to fit in a hole 2.2mm in diameter and 1.7 mm deep(presumably replacing a tooth.) and it will pick up sound and vibrations from your mouth thereby producing super clear sound.

The earpiece features replaceable rubber grips and attractive chrome inserts and is compatible with all Bluetooth capable phones with Handsfree and Headset profiles. No word on pricing just yet, but the Bluetooth Dental Insert Microphone will be available soon from those wacky people over at Chinavision. As they point out, “All dental work should be performed by a qualified dentist, Chinavasion does not take responsibility for injury resulting from the installation of this product”.

Logitec stereo mic for your iPod

Posted in Microphone by Darrin Olson on March 5th, 2008

Logitec LIC-iREC01 iPod microphoneAnyone that owns an iPod has probably noticed at one time or another that all of them lack a common feature found in many other media players – an audio input source. This fact has opened up a market for many 3rd parties to create microphone accessories for the iPod including one of the latest designs, this time from Logitec.

The LIC-iREC01 microphone connects to any model iPod that has a docking port and provides dual microphone for stereo recording straight to the device. It also has an input port for bringing in other audio sources to record aside from the ambient noise, and it has a pass through USB port to sync up and charge the iPod without having to remove the microphone accessory. A switch on the side controls high or low levels of recording and the part that we like best is that it’s small and doesn’t need any additional cords or loose parts (aside from the dock cap) to operate.
