Records with a Cardioid polar pattern, and featuring an array of practical and versatile features, the VDS-M3 is the perfect companion to help skyrocket your audio recording to the next level. It features a built-in rechargeable battery, that lasts approximately 220 hours, with the option to run off Phantom Power if you would prefer. The VDS-M3 is perfect for professional videographers and filmmakers, audio engineers and serious content creators.

Capture Rich Sounds

The VDS-M3 delivers crystal-clear natural audio without any colouration due to its professional XLR-based interface. With its super-cardioid pickup pattern, the VDS-M3 shotgun Microphone accurately captures far-away subjects that are directly in front of the microphone, whilst eliminating as much ambient noise as possible. Perfect for complex recording situations, such as shooting outdoors.

Ultimate Powerful Supercardioid Condenser Shotgun Microphone

The VDS-M3 features a built-in rechargeable battery, rated to last up to 220 hours on a full charge. This means that you will never have to worry about the power cutting out mid-shoot. It charges via a USB Type-C port, making it compatible with a wide range of chargers. The Ability to power it via a battery, makes run-and-gun style recording, mounting on a boom, and using a pistol-gip easier and more convenient.

Supercardioid Condenser Microphone with Phantom Power Option

The VDS-M3 can also be run on Phantom Power. When it detects an input current, it will disable its built-in battery and power itself via the phantom power source. When no input power is detected, it will revert back to its built-in battery.

Shotgun Microphone with Digital Switching

The VDS-M3 Shotgun Microphone has a full feature set enabling you to have the best audio possible:

High-Frequency Boost: - Helps restore some of the high-frequency ranges lost when a blimp or dead cat is placed over the microphone.

High-Pass Filter: - Reduces low-frequency rumbles produced by things such as air conditioning or traffic, for cleaner audio.

-10dB Attenuation Pad: - to cut back on the amount of amplitude by 10dB, for better recording of loud audio sources.

Supercardioid Condenser Microphone with Rugged Metal Construction

The VDS-M3 has durable metal construction, making it more than capable of withstanding the rigours of professional audio recording.

Shotgun Microphone with Adjustable Bracket

The VDS-M3 comes with a tiltable mounting bracket, enabling you to mount the mic to a microphone stand or a boom. The bracket has 270° of rotation, enabling you to position it to whatever angle you require.

The GODOX VDS-M3 Cardioid Shotgun Microphone is everything that videographers, filmmakers, and content creators need to record high-quality audio for their projects. With the ability to convert power via its built-in rechargeable battery, or via a phantom power source, the VDS-M3 is an essential piece of kit for anyone wanting to record professional-sounding audio.
