The iAudioInterface2: New A/D for iPod, iPad and iPhone

Holy crap, I think I might have broken the “i” on my keyboard typing that headline.

As recording voiceovers on our iDevices becomes more common there have been a multitude of doodads released for us to choose from to just plug a dang mic into the iThing and get a clean signal.  Most of the test recordings iHave heard with them sound pretty lackluster though.  Perhaps this will be an iMprovement, it certainly seems iMpressive:
