The VP64A and VP64AL are high-output omnidirectional handheld dynamic microphones designed for professional audio and video production. They combine exceptional performance and comfortable feel with a handsome on-camera appearance.

The VP64A and VP64AL are identical except for handle length. The 7 7/8" (200 mm) long VP64A is ideal for close-up use and can be used outside as well as indoors. The VP64AL is well-suited to location interviews, sports broadcasting, and other situations where the 9 5/8" (244 mm) length is an advantage.

The omnidirectional pickup pattern provides uniform pickup on or off axis, eliminating the need for critical microphone positioning. The VP64A series also features a tailored frequency response with an upper midrange presence rise that adds crispness and clarity to speech. The cartridge utilizes a neodymium magnet for higher output and increased signal-to-noise ratio.

The cartridge is housed in a rubber isolation mount for ruggedness and to minimize handling noise. It is protected by a water-resistant mesh that enables the microphone to be used during the most challenging weather conditions. For added wind and "pop" protection, use the supplied windscreen.

              I use the VP-64A for ENG field reporting & there is no other mic for the money that performs as well, I have used this microphone in the pits at Bathurst, Australia's premier V8 supercar race and the sound quality is amazing even in this extreme noise environment.

                I've used this mic for interviews and the sound has been flawless. My son and his band also used it to record their music and were thrilled with the results. A good product at a reasonable price.

                  A SUPER AFFORDABLE workhorse dynamic handheld hosting mic. I took this mic to Texas thru the week leading up to Super Bowl XLV, and it held its own thru lots of super loud situations. Great simple dynamic mic, at a great price that makes you almost never need or want to upgrade.

                    I'm an event videographer and I purchased this mic to accompany my sony z1u for on-the-spot interviews. While music/noise is blaring in the background, this little mic will pick up voices for my interviews beautifully. Never have I been so happy with a mic's performance.

                      The product is used to conduct interviews. The freelancers and contractors love to use it because the weight of it is not to much and does the same job if not better.

                        It is indeed a very good product, the only negative that I find is that the cable plug fits a little loose. I guess is normal, but it makes me think it will disconect at any time.
