Main Features
  • Apple MFi Certified Lightning connector

  • Sennheiser ME 2 microphone capsule
  • Apogee 24 bit/96 kHz digital connection to iPhone, iPad or iPod touch
  • For IOS 8 or later

The MKE 2 digital is a professional solution for mobile recording.

Whether videos, recording or interviews: With its wide range of applications, the MKE 2 plug-in microphone is already regarded as a legend for large- and small-scale productions.

While delivering top-quality musical images for speech and song, its tandem membrane provides it with a high degree of robustness against all environmental influences.

The condenser microphone is connected via Lightning to modern iOS devices – allowing the jack socket to remain free for monitoring headphones as needed.

An external converter from the Apogee high-end forge undertakes the digital signal conversion. With 96 kHz and 24 bit, the signal surpasses any CD quality available.

The corresponding apps (MetaRecorder and Maestro) for recording and control are included in the package.

In addition, the apps deliver metadata for the further processing, thus making the recording a simple matter. Essential features of MetaRecorder can be controlled from Apple Watch – start and stop recording, add a take to Favorites, add Markers or set your microphone input level.

There are, of course, many other apps that can also directly access the microphone.

Made for:
iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus, iPhone 5s, iPhone 5c, iPhone 5, iPad Air 2, iPad Air, iPad (4th generation), iPad mini 3, iPad mini 2, iPad mini, iPod touch (5th generation)

Comments about Sennheiser ClipMic Digital - Clip On Microphone for iOS Devices:

The Sennheiser ClipMic Digital is very easy to use especially with any IOS device! All you need to start recording is the desired app that is required that is the "APOGEE MetaRecorder" Once installed the app is fairly easy to navigate and within the app you are then able to control the mic control input level as well controlling voice filters. This app also allows easy upload of the recorded file audio via Dropbox which makes it very easy to transfer the file from the IOS device to any Dropbox compatible device. Sound quality is excellent and the ability to produce great mid to low tones is exceptional, if anyone is thinking of getting a high quality lavalier mic this is a must.

  • Q:


    I read here:
    that this microphone is compatible with iphone 7 plus. But it's not written in your description.

    Is it?

    Kind regards,

      As long as you have the latest iOS, it'll work no problem.

  • Q:

    Will it work while recording video on an iPhone? I noticed in the 'con', post synching is required. Does this mean it records audio separately to video? If it does, can you recommend a mic for recording video vox pops on iPhone 6?

      You'll require an video app that allows you to control external mic. Do a search in iTunes.

    Hi Guys

      We do VidPro XML Lavalier mic that can be used with all products, but I do not think it's in the same quality as Sennheiser.

      Hi Joe,

      Closest product that I can think of would be the Rode Lavalier microphone - you can then buy the appropriate connector to suit your application. They sell a connector that has a TRRS end for iOS & select android devices & they also sell a 3.5mm end, an XLR end & so on. The beauty of the product is that it can support virtually any device you upgrade to in the future & the quality of the microphone is very good.
