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 this straight into my Nikon D7000 for interviews on a noisy tradeshow floor.It performed very well, with excellent voice quality and ability to block out ambient sound due to its pattern.

            I ordered this mic because it was a shure and it was the cheapest I could find. I assumed when I ordered it that it would be a good little mic that I will need to upgrade as soon as possible.
            I was blown away after making a few recordings and playing back the sound. I have used the mic for over a month and I am extremely satisfied. I have received a few compliments on the sound quality. I plug it directly into my handy cam and it works great for that.

              Comments about Shure VP64AL - Omni-Directional Handheld Dynamic ENG Microphone:

              This microphone was purchased for a PR company that does media training and stand up interviews. The long length and light weight are a big plus for hand held use and the mic performed admirably in it's first usage. Sound quality was geared towards speech and the sensitivity was very good. I am not sure how this mic would compare in specs to the RE50 by EV but since it costs less than 1/2 the price who cares! I am giving the mic 4 stars due to the omni pick-up pattern making it unsuitable for noisy location use.
              All in all a very good interview mic.

                      Sounds great, but too much handling noise.

                        Pastor loves being freed from his lapel mic. This microphone is attached to the pulpit on a goose neck. Even when Pastor stands on the edge of the platform, the VP64AL still picks up his signal. Thank you for a great mic!

                              Bought this mic for news style interview and the sound is amazing with my HMC-150. Looks pro with company logos on mic flag. Also, the 1-3/8 (BLACK) Foam windscreen is a nice upgrade as well!
