No, it won't.

I have a cute little tiny mic from Sony that's built right
onto the mini plug, but it doesn't work either. The problem
isn't the microphones. The issue is that the recorder's
external input is a *line* level input, so in order to use a
microphone with it, you need some sort of preamp. On the
other hand, I get great recordings using the line out from
either my Roland digital piano or my mixer.
