If you're a podcaster on the go, you'll dig Blue Mic's latest offering: the Spark Digital ($200). It's the first studio-quality audio microphone built for the iPad. Price seem a little steep for an iPad mic? The good news is you can hook Spark Digital up to your computer as well with both USB and iPad connection cables. The condenser mic is great for all kinds of situations — from recording instruments to vocals — and features a headphone-out port so you can monitor your levels during recording sessions.
This sleek mic comes with a desk stand, USB and iPad cables, along with a six-month SoundCloud Pro account.
