Hello Roget and welcome to the Cow Audio Forum,

As much of a fan as I am with Sennheiser, when you get below a certain price of any manufacturer, the performance suffers. I have not had any time with this mic. It may be a standout for its price. That happens sometimes.

The PD170 mic is pretty dismal. The mic on my XL2 is actually pretty good.

Are you sure a camera mounted mic is the way you must go?

Regards,

Ty Ford
