All V-Mic D3 features

Broadcast Quality Sound

Using the same 14mm prepolarized condenser capsule as the D3 Pro, the D3 delivers superior sound quality on a budget. Its supercardioid pickup pattern captures audio that will surely make it through to the final mix of your video.

Low Self-Noise + Low Distortion

Unlike many 3.5mm microphones on the market, the D3 is able to deliver XLR-quality audio due to its low self-noise circuitry and extremely low distortion THD (0.1%).

Up to 200 Hours of Battery Life

The V-Mic D3 uses a single AAA battery for power and features a one-button on/off switch. When the camera or device is powered on, the D3 automatically activates. The same is true when the camera or device is turned off. Never worry about accidentally leaving your mic on again.

Unmatched Build Quality

A uni-body aluminum metal chassis means the D3 is as rugged as they come with no weak spots to flex or bend after prolonged use.

Smart 3.5mm 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, allowing you to carry fewer adapter cables.*

Where can I find the serial number for my D3 so that I can register my microphone?

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.

My D3 does not seem to be turning on… help!

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.

Deity says I need a “3rd Party TRS” cable, what is that?

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.
