Product Description

Rode Stereo VideoMic X Key Features:

  • Acoustically matched true condenser capsules
    An acoustically matched pair of 1/2″ externally biased, true condenser capsules provide studio-quality, immersive stereo sound.
  • Rycote® Lyre onboard shock mounting
    Integrated single-piece thermoplastic shock mounting, designed to minimise handling noise at a capsule-level.
  • Heavy-duty, lightweight aluminium construction
    Robust metal construction that only weighs 300g (10oz).
  • 9V or Phantom Power (P48)
    The Rode Stereo VideoMic X can be powered by 9V battery (up to 30 hours), or via P48 phantom power using XLR connectivity.
  • Balanced professional XLR output
    In addition to standard 3.5mm stereo output, the Rode Stereo VideoMic X provides balanced output via the professional XLR standard (via miniXLR – not included).
  • High Frequency Boost
    An innovative setting that will allow the Rode Stereo VideoMic X to enhance its high-frequency sensitivity when using the included wind shield.
  • High Pass Filter
    Three stage high-pass filter at 0/75/150Hz, to cut out any unwanted low frequency audio such as traffic noise and air conditioners.
  • Level adjustment
    Three stage level adjustment, offering a -10dB PAD for recording loud sound sources and a +20dB level boost to provide a cleaner audio signal to your camera/recording device.
  • Included pop shield and wind shield
    High quality environmental protection for both indoors and outside.

The Rode Stereo VideoMic X is the ultimate broadcast-grade stereo microphone for on-camera use. Utilising all-metal construction, it is incredibly robust making it ideal for regular professional use, while also providing high levels of resistance to RF interference. The mic features a matched pair of ½” true-condenser capsules, configured in a stacked X-Y configuration, providing a highly-immersive soundscape. Each capsule is supported by the Rycote® Lyre® shock-mounting system, providing isolation from vibration as well as knocks and bumps. Digital switching on the rear of the SVMX allows the user to control the level adjustment (-10dB or +20dB), high-pass filter (0/75/150Hz) and an innovative high-frequency boost (+6dB @ XHz) designed to boost the intelligibility of dialogue. In a first for the VideoMic range, professional-grade balanced outputs are available on the side of the body, in addition to the RF shielded 3.5mm stereo output cable. An outer dome structure provides physical protection for the sensitive capsules, while reducing wind noise in the same manner as RØDE’s RedDot-winning Blimp.
