The iXm Recording Microphone is a universal recording device which is especially developed for journalists. Reduced to efficiency, it is equipped with an easy-to-use instrument panel. The iXm’s onboard LEA DSP Engine gives you perfect audio levels in every recording.

To meet the wishes of the podcasting community, Yellowtec rethought the iXm and came up with an additional version: iXm Podcaster (YT5080) – a tool affordable for every ambitious podcaster who is longing for the iXm Recording Mic’s sound quality. With ease, the integrated LEA levelling technology masters every recording environment and secures professional sound – no post production needed! As a podcaster, you save valuable time for content creation!

Compared to the iXm Recording Mic, iXm Podcaster does not have a built-in battery or interchangeable mic heads. It only supports the dynamic cardioid mic head of the iXm PRO Line by Yellowtec. This makes it the perfect budget pleasant pick for every podcaster who is longing for iXm sound quality. Blue will be every podcaster’s new favourite colour.

Yellowtec’s PRO microphone head with cardioid recording pattern as a directed head is designed for recordings in environments with various noise levels. Thus, it is known as an allrounder which is a solid choice even for complex acoustic environments. Because of its sound pickup from the front, it filters background noise and with its optimal frequency response ensures brilliant voice recording and clarity. The cardioid pickup pattern suits best for interviews in various surroundings like events and outdoor locations with a lot of traffic noise. When using the head, there is a slight bass boost in near-field, but no common high proximity effect of directed microphones. Due to the high-pass-filter that is found inside the iXm recorder’s LEA Engine a perfect balance of frequency ranges is achieved.
