How It Works

A mic that sounds so accurate and travels so well can only come from audio pros with major touring experience. This compact barrel mic has a supercardioid/lobal polar pattern for capturing only your intended sound source, with a wide frequency range for natural audio reproduction. Advanced user controls for headphone monitoring, low-cut filter, mic gain adjustments, track management and playback support are all intuitively accessed for uninterrupted control. As for quiet? We’re less ‘boomy’ than you’d ever believe. Hear for yourself. 

Why It’s Better

Sound pro perfection

Our audio pedigree has been thoroughly sound checked by legends. With the YouTubers catching on, it’s time to up your audio game.

SD card’s a charm

You’ll still record directly to your camera, but with an ace up your sleeve: micro SD card backup that never passes through the pre-amps in your camera.

Lose the noise

Built-in shock-absorbing Rycote® Lyre® suspension isolates vibration and mechanical noise. Stellar RF immunity eliminates unwanted audio artefacts from mobile phones and RF devices.

Form for function

VP83F components are the same as ones used by the pros, with plenty of power for marathon filming sessions. And all controls are positioned intuitively, which you’ll appreciate by about hour two.
