Our take on the MXL MM-VE001

by Ralph Graves

Make better videos with your phone

If you use your smartphone to shoot video, this mobile media kit can help you take your recordings to the next level. The kit comes with a sturdy bracket with an adjustable holder to secure your smartphone, and a shotgun mic that can record directly to your iPhone® or Android™ smartphone.


Great sound from a compact mic

The included MXL FR-310 video mic delivers great sound, even in less-than-ideal conditions. Its integrated windscreen minimizes wind noise, and its supercardioid polar pattern means it picks up sound precisely where you point it, rejecting surrounding noise. The mic has three gain settings, so you can adjust for proximity, and a bass roll-off switch to mute unwanted low tones. The mic can record up to 500 hours powered by a single “AAA” battery. And it has a hotshoe mount, so you can attach it directly to your DSLR camera.

An all-purpose bracket

The rugged kit bracket features a foam handgrip, located to let you easily balance the assembly with one hand. The bracket can be used with either a smartphone or digital camera. And it has two coldshoes, one for the microphone and one for another accessory like a flash or LED light array. You can also mount the bracket on a tripod for even more stability. The included adapter cable has a headphone connection so you can monitor audio input.
