Video Review: low cost mics

These products were supplied for free to me for review by MCOplus but they did not pay for the review nor did they have any editorial control over what I said.

This is a look at and test of two compact cardioid microphones from Chinese brand MCOplus. One is designed for camcorders / phones (choosing the appropriate 3.5mm cable for that purpose) and the other plugs directly into phones that have a suitable TRRS jack. The obvious comparison is with the popular Rode VideoMicro so I did some audio samples of them both.
