Saramonic SoundBird V1 Shotgun Microphone (Battery, Phantom)

The Saramonic SoundBird V1 is a professional shotgun microphone that delivers premium, broadcast-quality sound, provides advanced features, and comes with a suite of useful accessories. It features a super-cardioid, directional pickup pattern that allows you to clearly capture sounds in front of the microphone and from a distance while rejecting unwanted sound from sides and rear. The all-brass construction is both incredibly durable and helps to reduce radio-frequency interference and the finish is both attractive and non-reflective. So, you can be sure it won’t catch the light, and add a glare to your shot. The XLR output is gold-plated to resist corrosion and provide the best possible signal transfer. The 10.7-inch length is the perfect size to either mount to a camera or uses on boom poles and stands.

Captures Sound Effectively

You will always know what settings are being used on your versatile SoundBird V1 because the built-in buttons are illuminated. The first button activates the high-pass filter, which removes unwanted low-frequency sounds, like the rumble of HVAC systems, footsteps, and traffic noise. The second button activates the -10dB pad, which enables you to capture louder sounds without distortion. The third button is On/Off, which controls the internal AA battery. When you power SoundBird V1 with external phantom power, the On/Off button illuminates green. When powering with an internal AA battery, it illuminates blue. When the battery is low, it illuminates red. SoundBird V1 also remembers your button settings when turned off and on.

Must-Have Accessories are Included

There are several useful accessories included in the box. You get an adjustable premium shock mount, which allows you to attach the SoundBird V1 to the shoe of a camera or onto a boom pole or stand. The shock mount eliminates vibration and handling noise. A foam windscreen is also included, which diffuses rushing air noise when used indoors, and gentle breezes when used outdoors. A 2-foot (61cm) XLR cable is also included, which is the ideal length when mounting to a camera.
