The Rode VideoMic II is highly directional. Be certain that the mic is directly pointing at you.
- If connecting the Rode VideoMic Go II to your computer via 3.5 mm TRS, we recommend also using headphones to limit echo.
- To use wired headphones, you may need to use a TRRS splitter if your computer does not have a separate 3.5mm port for audio input.
