There's a built-in microphone on an iPad, but if you're looking for better sound and more audio reach, Lifehacker reader JeshuaSan tested out a Guitar Hero microphone with a Camera Connector kit, and it worked great for an Evernote audio memo.
JeshuaSan claims a Guitar Hero mic worked fine with his iPad, but we'd have to assume Rock Band peripherals would do the trick as well, as they're fairly common USB microphones. Along with audio memos, there are a good number of speech-to-text and other apps focused on audio input that could benefit from a more clear connection, we'd wager. If you can think of any, or vouch for other peripherals, tell us about them in the comments.
