More than Reference

On-Camera microphones are more than just a way of getting better reference audio for sync, the V-Mic D3 allows you to get accurate quality audio for your B-Roll or Vlog.

Broadcast Quality Sound

The V-Mic D3 has a superior off-axis sound performance compared to some of the other on-camera microphones on the market at this price range. Combine that with its low self-noise, low distortion, and this microphone will make you want to use your camera’s audio in the final mix of your video.

  • Low noise circuitry
  • Extremely Low Distortion THD (<0.1%)
  • High-grade SNR (max. 78dB @-32dB sensitivity)
  • Same 14mm Prepolarized Condenser Capsule as the V-Mic D3 Pro

Featuring Our Smart 3.5mm Microphone Output

As soon as you plug the V-Mic D3 into a 3.5mm microphone jack of a device, its microprocessor shakes hands with the device. This means carrying much fewer adapter cables*.
*Check our microphone’s compatibility chart at the bottom of this website to see if your device is supported.

Out-of-the-box the V-Mic D3 is compatible with:
  • DSLRs
  • Camcorders
  • Smartphones*
  • Handy Recorders
  • Laptop*
  • Bodypack Transmitters
  • Tablets*

Swappable AAA Battery

The V-Mic D3 uses a single AAA for power. It also features a one button on/off switch. When turned on the microphone is ready in Stand-By-Mode and automatically goes into Run-Mode when the camera or device turns on. This also allows you to save battery on your microphone when you turn your camera off.

If you look on your shockmount you will see a sticker that features your microphone’s serial number. To register your microphone go to our warranty form.

It’s possible the device you’re trying to use either does not supply 3v bias voltage or the ground pin of the 3.5mm jack is out of spec and does not align with the ground pin on a TRRS plug. Make sure your device supplies bias voltage and try to use a TRS to TRS cable.

It means that your device requires a legacy 3.5mm TRS to TRS cable, much like the “AUX” cable you might use to plug your iPod into your car radio.
