I went on a quite an adventure today. I visited nearly every mobile phone provider's store (T-Mobile, Verizon, AT&T) today, as well as 2 of the best electronics stores on the planet in NYC: B &H photo , and J & R Music world.
My mission was really simple: get a high quality microphone into my Nexus One so that I can record really good quality audio into HiFiCorder. I must have spoken to literally 20 people today. I bought and returned about 10 different items, but in the end of the day, nothing worked, nothing fit, and I was very disappointed, but....I have some good news...And its called "TRRS"
The Nexus One has a 3.5mm headphone jack, which should support TRRS aka 3 ring 3.5mm (aka 1/8 inch) adapter.
And I've found some really good products online that I can't wait to see:
And there is even a sexy TRRS to XLR adapter that I'm getting too:
There were some REALLY nice products at B & H photo including a TRS to USB mini pre-amp all on one unit, HOWEVER, this requires phantom USB power, IT WONT WORK!! As mobile phones do not generally supply power from their USB ports.
So folks, try HiFiCorder for free! And happy recording!!!
------ UPDATE! ---------
I received the connections. The iPhone TRRS connectors work for Nexus One. HAPPY HAPPY, JOY JOY!!!
FYI they are made in Liechtenstein.... who would have thought. I suspect, that as time goes on, Asia will start making these. But, for now, get em while they're hot peoples! Thank you, and have a nice day!!!
