Jonathan, I don't think you'll be disappointed. 
The thing is tiny, about a 16th of an inch shorter than a tripple A battery
and slightly slimmer as well.
I'm guessing, though I haven't compared, that the sound in to your braille
note will be great! I'm particularly thinking about situations where you
don't want to open the BrailleNote. Just use the mic in to the side of it.

Have fun! I hope to hear it on the explosion soon!

Hi folks,
A while back I heard mention of a place to get high quality mics alled Giant
Squid Audio Lab. I checked out the site, just did a google search for it. I
downloaded a few of their demos and read the site a bit. Because they're
inexpensive, I thought I'd start with the "gold plated mono mic." This is a
mic with no cord. You simply plug this mini jack in to the line in or mic in
of your recorder. It works great for the iriver ifp units. Built in to the
other end of this little mini plug there is a mono omni directional

What can I say. It works great!
It's a mono mic, so it's best to set your iriver on mono, and crank up the
volume a bit, but it's hand held, or you can ware your iriver on your arm,
and record! I'm guessing this would work great for the braille note Mpower!.

I also purchased the stereo oak mic. This is a similar mic, but two mics are
housed in a small wooden cylinder which has a mini plug on one end. I'm not
recomending this one yet because I'm having a problem getting it to plug in
completely because of the little plastic protrusion between the headphone
and line in jack on the iriver 799. 
If these guys make corded mics which are as good as this mono mic, I'm going
to get a set.

Good luck!
