The Reporter Omnidirectional Handheld Interview Microphone from Rode is designed for interview and presentation uses. Its transducer capsule is shock mounted internally for rejection of wind and other low frequency environmental noises. With an internal plosive screen that rejects vocal plosives (pops), the Reporter Microphone is suited for both field reporting and interviews.

Rode designed the Reporter Microphone with a frequency response tailored for field reporting. The Reporter Microphone rejects frequencies below 70Hz, which are the source of most wind and various environmental noises. It also features a boost between 4 and 10kHz to help accentuate speech.

The Reporter Microphone's omnidirectional pickup pattern was designed to eliminate the need to move the microphone back and forth during interviews. With 360 degrees of pickup, the Reporter Microphone can be placed between you and your interview subject without the need to adjust its placement when the other person talks. The Reporter Microphone also features an internal multi-layer mesh basket that acts as a windscreen, avoiding the need for an external wind shield.

    Good sound, but not very good finishing

    Comments about Rode Reporter Omnidirectional Handheld Interview Microphone:

    I connect this mic to sound devices 633, the sound is good, but signal is not hot. I have to push 633 harder. The finishing is not very good. After a few times of using, I got two bumped dots around the RODE logo.

    Comments about Rode Reporter Omnidirectional Handheld Interview Microphone:

    As advertised. I was in a fast turn around situation and did not have time to mess with syncing external audio...I wired this directly to my Canon 7D (shoulder rig) and ended up with flawless audio over 10 hours / 2 days of shooting.
    The vocals are rich and clear, and the background (noisy ambient retail store) was present but pushed way back. Exactly what I would have hoped. The quality of the vocals was superior to wireless lav mics I have used in the past.
