RØDE iXY Stereo Microphone Recognised with Prestigious Red Dot Design Award

RØDE iXY Stereo Microphone
From RØDE:
 
The RØDE iXY stereo microphone for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch has been recognised as a product of the very highest design quality by the prestigious international Red Dot awards. An expert panel of 37 judges from around the world, including fashion icon Jimmy Choo, assessed over 4,600 products from 54 different countries and identified the iXY as a creative, innovative and overall outstanding product.
 
Since its inception in 1955, the Red Dot awards have represented the highest standards of product design. It acknowledges the excellent ergonomics, functionality, longevity, formal quality, durability, aesthetics and innovation of a product.
 
The iXY is RØDE’s first product offering for Apple’s iOS devices, and features broadcast-quality 24-bit, 96kHz recording. It is the only iOS microphone able to record at such a high quality resolution.
 
It features a matched pair of ½ inch condenser capsules arranged in a stacked XY configuration, ensuring detailed and immersive soundscapes that are always true-to-life. These are housed in an all-metal chassis that makes the iXY incredibly robust, while also adding electromagnetic shielding.
 
Its unique combination of portability and high-quality audio capture makes the iXY suitable for a wide range of applications, from recording live music to sound design and on-camera use, through to reporting and electronic news gathering (ENG).
 
“Everyone here at RØDE is incredibly proud of this honour,” commented Damien Wilson, RØDE’s Global Marketing & Sales Director. “The iXY represents years of blood, sweat and tears, and to have it received so well by customers and critics alike is validation of the entire team’s efforts.”
 
Peter Cooper, RØDE’s Vice President of Design and New Product Development echoed this sentiment. "We're delighted to win a Red Dot Award. The iXY is designed to be the best product of its kind in the world. To receive such high level recognition is testament to the quality of work by the many people involved."
 
Professor Peter Zec, initiator and CEO of the red dot, pointed out that strong design competence is a hallmark of a Red Dot award winner, explaining, “The winners of the ‘red dot award: product design 2013’ are the protagonists of a highly developed design culture and design industry.”
 
The RØDE iXY will be on display at the Red Dot museum in Essen, Germany along with all 2013 Red Dot Product Design award winners from July 2nd to 28, 2013.
