Step up your iPhoneography with a RODE VideoMic Me-L. Thanks to a lightning connector, it plugs directly into your iPhone or iPad (iOS 11 and up) to record quality audio. It also includes a 3.5mm jack for direct audio monitoring and playback through headphones.

Record only what you want

Unlike your iOS device’s built-in microphone, the VideoMic Me-L is a directional microphone with a cardioid polar pattern, which means that it only focuses on recording the sound where it is pointing at. This means that the microphone won’t pick up any other interfering sounds and it ensures that the sound you want to record is crisp and clear.

The VideoMic Me-L microphone includes a furry windshield for recording quality sound even in windy conditions, and a clip to secure it to your iOS device. The microphone has a small profile to complement your phone and only weighs 28 g, so there’s no excuse to leave it at home.

Better quality than your built-in mic

The microphone also has a wide audible range of 20 Hz to 20 kHz, and a maximum Sound Pressure Level (SPL) of 115 dB that can record louder sounds without the distortion you sometimes hear with smartphone microphones. Distortion is when the microphone is so overloaded with sound signals that it cannot process it.
