Here's the lowdown in IK Multimedia's own words....
iRig Voice is designed specifically for quality voice recording and is the perfect companion to the most popular singing and music apps like IK's EZ Voice and partner apps like Smule's Sing! Karaoke and AutoRap, plus The Voice: On Stage by StarMaker, musiXmatch, Karaoke Anywhere by JoltSoft and many more.
iRig Voice features an ergonomic design for comfortable handheld performance, and its shape fits easily into most standard microphone stand clips for stage use. And for maximum clarity its unidirectional cardioid design features a pickup that minimises feedback when used with speaker systems.
iRig Voice provides a unidirectional close voice pickup that's tuned for optimal vocal frequency range reproduction. It has an on/off slide switch for quick muting, and it connects through the microphone/headphone jack found on all iOS and Android devices providing a stereo output to connect headphones or earbuds for private practice and performance.
