The RØDE iXY: An awesome microphone for 30-pin iOS devices by Antonio Rosario | Feb 11, 2013 | Audio/Video, Posts | The RØDE iXY looks like an awesome attachment for an iOS device. Looks to be only compatible with devices that have the 30-pin connectors, so iPhone 5s & newer iPads are out. At least for the moment. $200. Available now but sold out at Rode’s store.
