RØDE VideoMic™ ME-L Microphone overview from GAK

The RØDE VideoMic™ ME-L is a compact and lightweightdirectional microphone designed to enhance the audio quality of recent iPhone models, for vlogging, live-streams and other purposes.

The VideoMic™ ME-L is an upgraded version of the RØDE's immensely popular VideoMic™ ME, that uses a lightning connection in place of the traditional TRRS microphone/headphone socket. The mic produces high-quality recordings that greatly enhance the quality of your videos, removing surrounding noise for clean and directional capture and greatly increasing the intelligibility of speech for interviews, vlogs and live streams.

The VideoMic™ ME-L connects to all recent iPhone models via a lightning connector that plugs straight into your device, power is achieved directly through the devices internal battery, eliminating the need for any additional mic batteries. The VideoMic™ ME-L also features a standard 3.5mm headphone jack on the rear panel so you can connect your headphones and achieve play-through in real-time as well as audio playback post-recording without having to remove anything.

The VideoMic™ ME-L boats the same superb build-quality synonymous with RØDES catalogue of professional industry-leading microphones. It's made from a number of durable aluminium pieces coated in a military-grade ceramic, the result is a tough, scratch-resistant body that's more than tough enough for constant use out in the field. An included deluxe furry windshield also reduces the effects of adverse weather conditions.

“The new VideoMic Me-L’s Lightning connector and plug-and-play functionality is a great addition to the VideoMic family, introducing the latest iOS devices to RØDE’s made-for-purpose mic" - Damien Wilson (RØDE CEO)
