I want to use an iOS device as a field recorder for an XLR microphone. However, I need to buy an adapter to plug in the mic via the headphone port. Which iOS devices support mic input (with the third band on the jack) via the headphone port?
Here is a summary of what iOS devices support microphone in via the headphone jack. This information was acquired by looking at Compatibility of Apple wired headset models with iPhone, iPad, and iPod models

- iPod touch (2nd generation and later)
- iPhone (Original and later)

Note: iPod touch (2nd generation) software version 2.2 or later required to use remote and mic features.
