  • Excerpt: I have three. I have a several other mics with "better specs". Forget the specs and trust your ears. The VP88 sound is uncolored - which bothers a lot of people. The sound field is perfect, which bothers a lot of people. Only problem is a bit of built in noise, I can't deny that.

  • Excerpt: After many years of haveing one VP88, I needed another stereo mic for my 2nd camera. Giving me the best audio in the field, it was a no brainer to get a 2nd one. I am so happy they still had this mic for sale. I own about eight different mic's and by far the VP88 is the best.

Great sounding stereo mic!

  • Summary: The VP-88 is a great mic for 5.1! I mix about 60 sporting events a year for television and use 3 VP-88s to create my 5.1 soundfield. I usually use the mics in the M/S config and let the audio console decode it to stereo. The stereo image is quite good and translates well into mono. Happy mixing!

  • Excerpt: The VP88 is a slim designed microphone that is used for professional recordings. This is the microphone that I prefer to use for recording sound effects when I am out and about. I was able to capture some really good crowd noise and street noise with it like cars and traffic.

  • Excerpt: The Shure VP88 is a high quality stereo condenser microphone to be used in the recording studio. I wouldn't recommend using the mic in any other situation, as it isn't designed for use on the stage or anywhere else really.
