I'd like to use the Voice Recorder app from the App store to record lectures given to my students to use as podcasts. I doubt the iPhone mic has the ability to pick up voice from the distances that would separate me from the iPhone while lecturing. My question is, what distance could I get if I used a bluetooth headset to capture my voice to the iPhone? I'd likely be any where from 3 to 15 feet from the phone during lecture.

I'd also welcome other suggestions as to how I could use the iPhone for voice recording, instead of buying a separate voice recorder gadget to make my podcasts.

Thanks in advance.

    Mike, I use my iPod for recording my lectures, with the little MicroMemo microphone that plugs into the bottom. Clip mic to my shirt, slide iPod into my shirt pocket. I publish to our iTunes U. Runs good.

    But iPhone would be a sweet variation on that, especially with the bluetooth idea. Unfortunately, I do not have an iPhone yet.
