RØDE shows how your ears can USB-C with the new VideoMic Me


Now that we all have incredibly powerful video cameras in our pockets, audio recording has definitely seen improvements, but new new VideoMic Me lets your ears truly USB-C some incredible audio recording improvements.

Yes, it's true - RØDE has figured out how your ears can USB-C all the sonic colours of the rainbow - and no, this isn't an April Fool's joke - it's the VideoMic Me-C.

RØDE Microphones designs and manufactures high-quality microphones and related accessories for studio, live and location use, and earlier this year, launched its stunning Wireless Go II - a next-gen, ultra-compact, truly wireless microphone, reborn for 2021.

An Australian brand whose parent company celebrated its 50th anniversary in 2017, RØDE's products are even "designed and primarily manufactured in Sydney, Australia and exported to 118 countries globally", so this clearly isn't RØDE's first rodeo when it comes to ultra high quality audio products.

RØDE’s latest addition to its best-selling VideoMic Me range of microphones for smartphones is the the VideoMic Me-C, a smartphone microphone that plugs directly into the USB-C port of compatible smartphones and other USB-C mobile devices, like the iPad Air, iPad Pro and other USB-C equipped tablets.

It was recently released as part of the RØDE Vlogger Kit range but is now available as a standalone product, and is designed to deliver "incredible audio when shooting video."

Here are the key features of the VideoMic Me-C, after which is an official product video, and the rest of the article, so please read on!

  • High-quality directional microphone for USB-C mobile devices
  • Cardioid condenser capsule delivers crystal-clear, focused audio
  • 3.5mm headphone jack for audio monitoring and playback
  • Mic clip and furry windshield included
  • Designed and made in RØDE’s precision manufacturing facilities in Sydney, Australia

Here's more info:

The new VideoMic Me-C is identical to RØDE’s best-in-class VideoMic Me for 3.5mm sockets and the VideoMic Me-L with Lightning for for iOS devices, but obviously the Me-C has a USB-C connector for plugging into Android smartphones and tablets, and other mobile devices with a USB-C input, such as the iPad Pro.

It features a high-quality cardioid condenser capsule for capturing crystal-clear audio that is focused on what the microphone is pointed at, while reducing background noise. This makes the VideoMic Me-C ideal for everything from recording videos for TikTok to making video calls and recording music performances.

The VideoMic Me-C has a 3.5mm headphone output for audio monitoring and playback. Also included is a clip for ensuring the microphone is secure and a furry windshield for recording outdoors in adverse weather conditions.

The VideoMic Me series has become the go-to audio solution for iPhone users, offering high-quality, directional audio in a compact form factor that is incredibly easy to use. With the release of the VideoMic Me-C, the range now caters to every kind of smartphone, giving everyone access to great sound for mobile recording.
