With a frequency response of 20 Hz to 20 kHz the Rode VideoMic Me-L gives you a wide audible range, while an SPL of 115 dB allows you to record louder sounds without distortion. Being cardioid in polar pattern, the microphone exhibits a directionality that focuses the sound wherever you’re pointing the device, providing a measure of rejection to any audio hitting the sides of the mic. Included with the mic is an easily attached slide on furry windshield for those windy days.

    Love this little mic. Small, compact and lightweight with awesome audio pickup when pointing at my subject to record location reports to mobile or just recording voice reports from home.
