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.

5First mic under $200 I've ever owned. Impressed.
By MrVideo
Wow. I have a closet full of pro filmmaking gear but expanded it to include a GoPro Silver and EVO GP-Pro stabilizer. This mic turned that rig into a superb compact VLOG rig but also serves as an interview rig all because of the awesome sound from this directional mic. It does an excellent job of rejecting ambient sound. To mount it on the EVO, I used the EVO quick release extension mount accessory. That QR mount holds the VideoMicro shock mount shoe and the mic can easily be removed and flopped 180 for VLOG position and then for interview position. I used the MXL MM-C003GP audio cable. It's all a bit floppy and can sometimes overload the stabilizer motors but after tidying up the MXL adapter by molding the female jack to the mini USB jack at 90 degrees (pointing up), that greatly improved things. It would be perfect of RODE offered a cable for this model that could plug directly into the mini USB of the GoPro. Still gets 5 stars for great sound in an inexpensive mic with shock mount included. Does it sound like my expensive mics? No. But they can't touch this VideoMicro for size, weight and portability.
