This beltpack field interview tool, incorporating a professional mic preamp and headphone amp, lets you do professional man-on-the-street interviews through your cellphone. It provides two-way IFB through the phone or notebook for remote monitoring.

Connect to your phone or notebook through the wired headset jack. A 3.5 mm stereo line input jack allows recordings to be mixed in. A 3.5 mm stereo line output jack provides your mic signal on the left channel and return audio on the right. Stereo headphone output gives a mix of the XLR microphone input, 3.5 mm input and return audio. Use it as a headset replacement for normal voice calls, or transmit full-bandwidth audio using popular codec apps. Expect 20+ hours on a 9V cell. Price: $315.
