What we say:

At A Glance:

The Rode iXY Lightning is a stereo microphone that's compatible with iOS devices. Featuring a pair of cardioid condenser capsules set at a 90 degree angle, Rode iXY captures an accurate stereo image in studio quality sound, straight through your iPad or iPhone's Lightning connection.

Features We Love:


The iXY Lightning features a pair of high sensitivity capsules set in a tried and tested XY configuration. XY is a commonly used mic configuration that's practised in recording studios to capture stereo recordings, where two microphones are set at a 90° angle, pointing towards a source. The result captures an authentic stereo image that works in a very similar way to your own ears.

Audio Quality

Behind the accurate condenser capsules is a high-quality audio to digital converter that can record at 24-bit/96k.


Compatible with most iPads and iPhones, iXY Lightning provides studio-quality sound in stereo direct to your iOS device. Can also be used via a Lightning to USB-C adapter.

Customer reviews

Overall Rating 5 (1 reviews)

Rode gear is solid and robust, meant to last and I've always found their microphones totally reliable. The iXY fills a gap bringing extra quality audio recording to mobile devices. ONE adverse point...due to the pace of mobile 'progression', the Rode documentation has not been updated. In with the iXY are several connectors, each designed to fit a different iPhone model...each is numbered, BUT there's NO explanation as to which connector fits which mobile...oops
