Should I upgrade?

I am thinking about upgrading my Rode VideoMic Pro to the Plus version, so I ran both through 6 different tests.

Another one to consider: Shure VC85


  • Another helpful comparison. Thank you.

    Personally, even though the newer model is +4dB more sensitive, the bigger size of it turns me away from it. My camera bag is already pretty tight with gear. I don’t know if I could fit the bigger model in it.

    Plus my current Rode Videomic Pro is still working fine, so if it ain’t broke then don’t fix it.
