    Not much you can say about these. They connect the mic to the battery holder and hot shoe mount part of the mic. Mine were extremely cracked, but somehow still hanging on, however, the mic tilted pretty far to the side as the rubber had stretched over the life of the mic.

    These new rubber bands are improved. Instead of just being simple rubber rings, they now have molded ends that go on one side or the other. This makes the rings both easier to replace, and I'd bet that it holds in place a little better.

    If you need replacement rings for your Rode Videomic, these are the thing. These will not fit the Rode Stereo Videomic or the Rode Videomic Pro.

      Comments about Rode VideoMic Silicone Replacement Bands:

      It's really the only option you have for a replacement band on the video mic, they do have a tendency to break after a while and it would be nice if Rode had a higher quality support band for these older mics.

                I use my Rode Mic a lot so there is a tremendous amount of wear and tear on the videomic silicone bands. After awhile the almost all snapped. I was unaware they could be replaced until I found the VideoMic Silicone Replacement Bands by Rode. Being able to replace the bands with this cost efficient package is invaluable.

                  I am very disappointed Rode does not offer a retrofit to upgrade the older VideoMic to the new Rycote suspension. These little silicone bands are weak and will break by looking at them the wrong way. I've tried different O-Rings and rubber bands but the squeak always transfers to the recording. In my opinion this is the only weak point to an otherwise excellent product.

                    I have the new Rode Videomic but want to keep the older, bulkier one in commission. The straps fail in it from time to time since I'm flipping it around when using it with my DSLR and monopod. I'm glad they sell the straps for my convenience.

                    I believe the newer model has created sturdier straps than these.

                    Would be 5 stars, except the price. These bands keep my mic stable, don't make noise, and are excellent quality. My 1st set of bands broke and I used rubber bands (terrible idea!). Now that I have these RODE bands, I'm able to keep my shotgun rig running and gunnin!

                          My Rode microphone still works great but some of the support bands have degraded over time. These replacements bands worked perfectly to stabilize the mic and B&H had them at a great price and the shipping was quick and on time. I'll be back.

                            I accidentally bought these when I needed the ones for the Pro version. But I was able to give them to a friend who has the standard Video Mic. He says these break down a little too easy though.

                                These little rubber support bands are much better than the ones that came with the microphone. They fit tighter and there is less worry that they will fall off.
                                Good investment.

                                      Not to rain on Rode, but crosscutting thin (3/16") rings off an old bike tire innertube works pretty well too. I had a flat 27"x 1-3/8"-1-3/4" tube that will supply dozens of springy yet strong loops.

                                          These bands stretch and break during normal use of the microphone so this cheap cost keeps it functional. I wish it had a better way that they wouldn't break. But since they break rather then the mic itself I can't complain.

                                          They are rubber bands. They work. Just watch out when storing the videomic so that it doesn't happen often.

                                                I love my Rode mic. I trashed two of the shock mount rubber bands climbing onto a boat with my camera rig around my neck. I managed to survive the next two days but i'll never be caught without a spare set again.

                                                    After 5 years the original bands on my Videomic were rotting away. I wanted to start using the mic with my new D5 but it wouldn't work without new Bands. I was pleasantly surprised to find replacements on the B&H website and I ordered them expecting the bands to be identical to the originals. They weren't. They were better. They're molded now to give them better strength and durability. Rode did a great job on this small item. Even if your old bands are good think about a replacement pair. You'll need them one day.
