    господа, где узнать какое напряжение питания этого микрофона RØDE VideoMic Me ? на оф. сайте инструкций нет. на сайте сказано про микрофон RØDE VideoMicro (это очень похожий внешне и идентичный по параметрам, думаю капсюль у них один и тот же) питание 3 вольта минимум. А сколько максимум, 5 вольт от звуковухи нормально будет? Я свой микрофон VideoMic Me подключал к айфону (питание 1,9 вольт), андроиду филипсу (питание 1,5 вольт), ноутбуку (спаял переходник, питание 2,5 вольт) – везде работает. Интересно, если попадётся звуковуха с 5 вольтовым выходом – нормально ему будет? не хочется 4 рубля выбрасывать 😉

    This looks like just what I need. But, what jack do the monitoring headphones need (trs or trrs)? In the video, yours has 3 bands (trrs) but the headphones that B&H bundles with the Rode Videomic Me have 2 bands (trs). Will either work in the mic?

    Excellent review! Very in-depth and you clearly know what most people are actually want to learn about the product. I appreciate you taking the time to do the review.
    May I ask some question? What are the app that you are using solely for the voice-record purpose? and does it allow audio monitoring with the Videomic Me?
    Thanks in advance!

    Ever noticed out of sync audio? I used it with my cell phone and there's a delay in the sound to the video. Does a FANTASTIC job in eliminating sound though

    When I use my Rode VideoMic Me, i get a distinct and constant almost like a metronome, clicking throughout every recording. Any idea what is causing that?

    This is a really useful review but I'm shooting a short film soon and was wondering if the sound quality wouldn't drop if the mic was further away from the subject, as in your video you get the best sound from closer to the mic. Would the audio quality still be the same if I tried for shots that weren't just close ups? Thanks

    I bought one based on this review, sly it will not allow me to monitor my audio while video taping on my iPad. Do I need an adaptor for my headphones, or is my mic defective.

    I would say there is an improvement, but not very much really. Its a shame because out of all the iPhone mics out there this is a decent price. The Shure MV-88 is twice the price but is by far the best mic for iPhone.

    Been thinking about buying a shotgun mic and its between this and the rode micro. I've asked around other mobile film producers and the video me has been criticized for noise when the phone is moved around too much. The micro is cool and nit that much more but needs to be mounted on a cold shoe. Hmmm…any suggestions on how to decide? Great vid btw…thanks for sharing.
