Belkin on Thursday announced plans to ship its TuneTalk Stereo in North America in mid-June. This $69.99 device plugs into the dock connector on video iPods and enables them to record audio in stereo — voice memos, interviews, lectures and conversations.
The TuneTalk Stereo features built-in stereo microphones and also includes an auxiliary 3.5 mm stereo input jack so you can record with an external microphone. Included is a credit card-sized stand that lets you position your iPod facing the source of the sound. An adjustable Gain Control switch can adjust recording quality, and a plastic spacer provides some added stability when the iPod isn’t in a case.
Recordings created using the TuneTalk Stereo can be copies to a your computer for storage, editing or transfer. Support for the device is already built into the iPod, so there’s no need to install additional software.
Belkin is making the TuneTalk Stereo in both black and white colors.
