Deity Microphones V-MIC D4 DUO Overview

By B&H Photo's

Designed for fast-moving, run-and-gun DSLR/mirrorless videographers, the Deity Microphones V-Mic D4 DUO is a compact and lightweight on-camera microphone that offers a smart feature set aimed at capturing better-sounding interviews from the field.

The V-Mic D4 DUO offers a dual-capsule design, with one cardioid capsule focused on the subject in front of the mic and a second aimed at the rear, allowing it to pick up audio from the camera operator/interviewer/journalist filming the scene. Instead of being forced to shout for the benefit of a microphone, it lets the interviewer speak in a normal tone of voice without sounding muffled and distant, providing improved sound for interviews and voice-overs.

The versatile V-Mic D4 DUO also features a 3.5mm Aux input designed to accommodate a lavalier mic or wireless transmitter (both available separately). If you have time to mic up your subject with a lav, simply plug it into the jack and flip the stereo switch that bypasses the rear mic on the D4. The lav is recorded on the camera's right channel, while the front capsule of the D4 DUO is routed to the left. With the audio from each mic on separate tracks, you can dial in the exact blend you want of the close-miked sound from the lav and the ambience of the on-camera mic in post-production. No longer do you need to carry around bulky camera mixers or hard-to-find stereo splitter cables to achieve similar results.

Weighing only 1.4 oz, the V-Mic D4 DUO adds quality audio to your camera rig without weighing it down. Included are two faux-fur windscreens to reduce wind noise when shooting outdoor, a Rycote Lyre shockmount to reduce vibrations and handling noise, and a coiled 3.5mm output cable.

Do More, Carry Less
  • Dual cardioid pickup patterns for directional sound capture in front and behind the camera
  • Low-noise circuitry for high-quality speech and dialogs
  • Aux input for lavaliers microphones or wireless receivers
  • Powered via plug-in power from the camera
  • Compact and lightweight at 1.4 oz
  • 3.5mm TRS coiled output cable for DSLR/mirrorless camera or portable recorder
  • Rycote Lyre shockmount with camera shoemount
  • 1/4"-20 and 3/8"-16 threaded mounting options
  • 2 x faux-fur windscreens

Deity Microphones V-MIC D4 DUO Reviews

Just good enough

By Matt

Bad, unusable audio in any breezy condition with dead cats on. Very interesting microphone with the added input on mic to have a lav mixed in. Rear audio dual capability is what made me choose this and was helpful a handful of times to be able to have a -10db audio to help try to fix the wind noise from the terrible dead cats.

This is a awesome mic the included wind guard works great ! I used it in 30-40 mph wind gusts and could still hear audio.

Good sound, front and back!

I shoot a lot of POV pornography and this mic is fantastic with capturing audio for that purpose.

What a concept with front and rear facing mics in one capsule. This is what i needed for the person behind the mic facilitating the shot or providing play by play while also recieving front audio. Perfect! One and two channel options for editing in post. How is the sound quality? Good for a $100 mic. Is it perfect? probably not but an excellent replacement for dual cavs when needed or desired. I would by again, again and again.

Great starter microphone

By Viel

Deity D4-Duo is a great starter microphone for beginner vloggers and audiophiles. Using with a mobile device (with an app that is compatible with an external mic input setup) and a Go Pro, the audio quality is expectedly better. However, I did notice a higher noise floor even with just the front capsule enabled, and I can't accurately describe if the dead cat is "working" (mixed reviews from other vloggers). The gain and bass appear to be less sensitive than the newly-released Deity D4 Mini. I plan on using the D4-Duo with my GoPro setup as I cannot control the gain on the GoPro, and the D4-Mini with my mobile device setup. It would be nice if the D4-Duo included both TRS to TRS and TRS to TRRS cables just like the D4 mini at its price point. For this reason, I give it 4-stars.

Good Concept

Used the product on a Canon EOS C70 for home movies. It's a great concept to capture front and rear facing audio. The signal comes out stereo where the Left Channel is the front and the Right Channel is the rear. For this specific camera/mic pair, make sure you enabled the "powered mic" option in the audio settings. Results were alright. Audio was clear from both channels. However, I will be returning to use a dedicated phantom-powered shotgun mic. For example, my Sennheiser MKE 600 renders more "presence" (for more $, unfortunately). Don't get me wrong, this Deity product is not bad - it's just okay - it's a mic.

Over priced

Not worth the price. Catches a lot of wind even with the dead cat. The duo does not work with iPhones. Only works one way. Do yourself a favor and save up for a better one. Also if you need to return this item, make sure you keep the original box of B&H won't accept it.

Best camera mic yet!

I've tried out a lot of mics for my camera and this one is by far my favorite. In the past, I've had issues with poor quality or WiFi causing sound issues, but this mic is perfect! Not to mention you can switch back and forth between the front and back mic if you're using tis for vlogging.

How does this compare to the rode videomicro? Anyone have real world experience for comparison?
Asked by: John
This mic is better than videomicro because it is a duo mic for interviews or YouTube videos. It works very well with either phone or camera. If you don't need the rear mic, you can turn it off. I have both but I like this better.

The included cable will only work with cameras and audio recorders with mini jack connections that provide plug in power. To make the mic work with am iPhone, you will need to use a trs to trrs adapter, like this one from Rode BH# ROSC4.

Can this turned 90 to record left and right instead of front and back?
Asked by: Ignacio
I am not certain whether the mic and shockmount can turn 90 degrees separately from the shoe mount on the bottom. But there are 1/4"-20 and 3/8"-16 threaded mounting options on the bottom which you can use with a separate shoe adapter to use on a camera or to attach the mic to a stand, and that would allow you to turn the mic and position it as desired. For a shoe mount option, you could use the Revo Hot Shoe to 1/4"-20 Male Post Adapter (B&H # RESACS14M).

I’ve seen reviews that mentioned bad wind noise. Has anyone noticed that?
Asked by: Darrin
I tested it just now against a supercardioid mic both had dead cats. I just tested them by blowing on the mic dead on the capsule and from the side. The performance was more or less the same, not a super scientific test. In general mics in this price range aren’t the best for high wind scenarios but I don’t see this mic having problems in most real world situations as long as you have the included dead cat on the mic when using it outdoors.
