Griffin iTalk Pro for iPod
Griffin Technology today announced that its new iTalk Pro has shipped to stores. iTalk Pro "combines simplicity with versatility, to allow iPod users to faithfully record under real-world conditions," the company said. "It's the most compact configuration possible, eliminating the need for extra cables and adapters." The iTalk Pro, which plugs directly into the iPod's dock connector, offers one-touch operation and can record in stereo or mono. It features built-in twin microphones that record in stereo at 44.1kHz to yield professional, CD-quality recordings. iTalk Pro also features a stereo 1/8-inch (3.5 mm) input jack to accommodate external microphones for greater stereo separation. The device also offers adjustable gain settings for control over the volume. The iTalk Pro work with the iPod video and second-generation iPod nano; it is priced at $50.
