    The Mikey doesn't fit snugly enough to actually be used with my iPod Touch.

    I emailed them and told them about it and all I got was a pitiful response:

    "Please let me know if I can assist in the future. I am sorry this scenario didn’t pan out differently."

    That's as poor as it gets.

    My advice is not to try Mikey with the Touch.

    If they cared a bit more, they'd send me another one to replace the paperweight I own.

  2. Mike says:

    The folks at Blue Mics, the makers of Mikey, are sending me a new style Mikey next month and hopefully, we can give a better review.

    I own their Snowball USB mic and it's a tremendous mic and I'm looking forward to the Yeti, which should be the bomb.
