Remarkably clear directional audio on the go! The Rode VideoMic GO Light Weight On-Camera Microphone delivers clear, crisp, directional audio with incredible ease of use. Rode designed the VideoMic GO with a tight pickup area that focuses directly in front of the mic and reduces other surrounding sounds, ensuring that your subject is isolated from background noise. The integrated Rycote Lyre shock mount isolates the VideoMic GO from bumps and vibrations that could otherwise interfere with your sound. Constructed from a single piece of hard-wearing thermoplastic, the Lyre provides superior acoustic suspension to traditional elastic solutions, and will never wear out, sag or snap. The Rode VideoMic GO has no complicated switches or settings and is powered by your camera's external microphone input, requiring no batteries to operate, ensuring you never miss a great shot.

5Rode VideoMic Me Shotgun Mic Review
By Chris Gray
[[VIDEOID:5dc27ea15b339aabd07ec96284055af2]] Recording video or audio with an iPhone or other smart device has become the norm. Why not take better video or snapchat audio? You already have a great built in camera, so now we just need better audio. Thats where the Rode VideoMic Me comes in.

It's a directional shotgun mic that is easy to use and set up. And it's passive, which means no batteries. While this may be a drawback for the more pro-user, the lack of battery or power may be better for the regular everyday user. With quality construction, it's built pretty tough - Mostly aluminum, with a bit of plastic on the back.

The Mic plugs in with a 3.5mm and is compatible with most smart devices that have the female end. There is even a passthrough connection in the back so you can listen after you record something. Heck, you can even use the Rode VideoMic Me for phone calls or FaceTime, if you want.

The kit is pretty decent and includes a dead cat and plastic clamping piece. All in all, a great device to capture better audio for Instagram, Snapchat or Facebook live, not to mention just recording memories on you device. I totally recommend this if you're in the market to increase the audio in your videos on a budget.

5Best microphone for iPhone videos ever!
By Go Mom Go
So I make fun videos with my friends just for the fun of it, we Edit them and post them on KelBellFilms. It's just a fun hobby for me. And I just wanted to start putting some audio in my videos. So I didn't want to waste a lot of money on a big expensive mic for my moms camera. So I just got one for my phone to make the audio sound like it is a expensive camera. And after putting the rode mic me through a few tests I absolutly love it!!! The wind muff works so well and makes my audio sound so good! I'm sooo happy with my purchase and it's just so amazing! Now if you do try and do a test with the mic on and off like saying hello, it doesn't make a big difference. But after testing it in crowded areas that have lots of noise it works great!!!! And I would buy it over and over again if I had too. So happy with my purchase and now my videos don't look like they were filmed with a phone!!
