Pretty useful when I want to record lectures – Mini Microphone for iPhone 3G/iPod Nano 4G/iPod Touch 2G/iPod Classic 120 (3.5mm Jack/Black) Reviews

Pros:
Such a nice small shape. Comes with a cap that fits snugly around the jack (is that what it's called?) and protects it. I tested if my ipod 2G could record my voice from 10-12 feet away and I could hear myself pretty decently when I replayed the recording. It doesn't come with a keychain, but on the cap, there is clearly a loop where you can put one around it. Now I have a black pill-shaped microphone keychain!
Cons:
Not really a con of the product itself, but you're going to have to unplug the microphone before you try to listen to the recording.
Other:
It tells you in the instructions to upgrade your ipod to some sort of new software version. However, I didn't upgrade my ipod 2G and the voice memo worked just fine. Not sure on how this microphone would on other apps.
Bottomline:
Convenient size and a useful function. Sure beats spending another $200 on an iphone or carrying around a tape recorder.
