Durable and Small
At under 2.9" long and 1 ounce light, the VideoMic Me-L is an unobtrusive companion for your smartphone and its durable aluminum body aids in RF rejection.
Condenser Mic with Directional Sound Pickup
Whereas most built-in smartphone microphones pick up sound from all directions, this microphone utilizes a cardioid polar pattern to focus on sound in front of it while attenuating sound entering from the rear. Its directional condenser element delivers more detailed audio than the mics typically found in mobile devices.
Easy Connection to Smartphone
Since the VideoMic Me-L is outfitted with a Lightning connector, it can plug directly into the Lightning port of your iPhone or iPod, no cable or adapter required. A rubber clip is included to ensure stable and secure attachment to your mobile device.
Powered by Your Mobile Device
The VideoMic Me-L runs on power from your mobile device, so no batteries are required to operate it. Just connect the microphone to your iPhone/iPod and forget about swapping or charging batteries.
With the VideoMic Me-L, there's no guessing whether your audio sounds good. Its 3.5mm output lets you plug in headphones for convenient real-time monitoring while the mic remains connected to your mobile device. It also allows you to listen to playback of your recorded content.
24-Bit Digital Resolution
The integrated analog-to-digital converter operates at up to 24-bit / 48 kHz for industry-standard signal quality and compatibility with most audio and video recording apps.
Furry Windshield Minimizes Wind Noise
The VideoMic Me-L includes a furry windshield to minimize unwanted wind noise from breezes, fans, heaters, and air conditioners.
