Top Customer Reviews
After browsing Amazon, reading hundreds of reviews and Reddit posts, I decided to try the Rode VideoMic Pro. That was a mistake. The mobility of that mic is great, but not the quality.
After returning that one, I switched to the MKE600 and was blown away! The quality is near perfect and the audio quality in my videos has substantially improved.
Now, I don't have the mobility with this mic (see setup below) but that's fine since I'm not a vlogger and on the move all the time.
I use this with the Canon 70D, Zoom H4N and the Comprehensive XLR Plug to Jack Audio Cable. It's quite an advanced setup, especially for YouTube videos, but I'm a perfectionist and the audio quality this beast puts out is top notch! Just be sure that your equipment is compatible with XLR before buying this.
If you want to hear the mic in action, you can search my name on YouTube and watch the videos where I'm standing in front of the mic. I use a different mic in the other videos.
Best mic I've used in my 8+ years filming!
PS: The packaging is awesome as well!
Bottom line, expensive but totally worth it.
Deeper frequency response, lower noise floor.
I run it into a Zoom H1 with a balanced adapter cable. Sounds TERRIFIC.
Internal battery has lasted over 50 hours of shooting so far.
I read that there might be handling noise with this shotgun, but I haven't tested this out in the field, and I don't plan to be be doing any run and gun booming with this. Could be fine, I just haven't tested it like that.
Very pleased for my purposes
