Works OK as a mic, but it does one bad thing. – Mini Microphone for iPhone 3G/iPod Nano 4G/iPod Touch 2G/iPod Classic 120 (3.5mm Jack/Black) Reviews

Pros:
1. Great price. You wouldn't believe what some companies charge for this kind of thing.
2. Nice packaging. Plugs into a plastic "socket" so the whole thing becomes a sealed capsule when not in use so the plug won't poke a hole in your pocket. There's even a place provided so you could hang it from a string around your neck.
3. Works fine in many programs, unfortunately, the built-in voice recorder in the 3.x version of iPod touch software is not one of them. Use iTalk (free) instead.
4. Great build quality, quite decently made AFAIK.
Cons:
When you plug it in, it *disables* the earphone completely! Yes, I know that it plugs into the earphone jack, but it even disables listening via Bluetooth headphones, so you cannot reasonably use this for making VOIP phone calls at all! I'm not sure if this is bad design of the mic or Apple's fault.
Other:
Bottomline:
Great for quickly plugging in and making voice recordings or Evernotes, but then you will have to *unplug* it every time if you want to listen to make sure it worked.
