    Rode NT-USB reviews

    NT-USB USB Microphone is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 77.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic Microphone! I really love this microphone. First of all, it comes with its own pop filter, plus a very long USB cable, which is very handy to have if you're using the USB mic for camera work that is not right next to your computer. As far as sound quality goes, my voice comes out very crisp, clear and natural, and the NT-USB picks up very little background hissing or fan noise, which is fantastic. The build quality feels very solid, and the ability to listen to my voice in real-time while recording gaming content, for example, is very helpful. Overall, I'm glad I made this purchase, and I have suggested that others buy this microphone, because it truly is THAT good.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Research pays off! When I decided I would start recording, I researched what I would need for months. I crawled the web, talked to musicians and sound engineers, and read countless reviews for dozens of usb mics before deciding to get this one. While some of my other options were much cheaper, I am extremely happy with the RDE NT-USB. I sing with a lot of brightness and ping, and it handled that masterfully. I recorded my wife's quartet as well, and the sound didn't get tinny at all. It's a worthwhile investment that I highly recommend. It will be used extensively and will be well-loved for years to come.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely superb USB condenser mic I have accumulated half a dozen USB mics for making podcasts and screencasts. All of them are acceptable, but two really rise to the top. And at the very top is the Rode NT USB. The sound quality is (subjectively) far more pleasing to me than any of my other mics. The controls are large and conveniently located. It WILL pick up any sort of bumps or vibrations, so a shock mount is a must. I recommend the Rode shockmount that has a round, built-in pop filter. If your desk is made of granite and you don't need a shock mount, this microphone has a curved, detachable pop filter than works well. For me, the best setup is with a short, hefty desktop mic stand and the Rode shock mount/filter setup.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Totally Satisfied I use this mic for voiceovers and I was impressed so much by Rode that I ended up going back and buying their wireless filmmaker lavaliere kit. The audio quality is great! But what I like even more is what they provided. I feel like this was designed by a user of the product rather than some marketing guy or engineer. First the Pop shield is included, it attaches quickly and securely to the mic and does what pop shields do. Next the 20' USB cable. It may seem like a simple thing but it eliminates the headache of buying the mic then realizing you need an extension. Finally it included a $90 studio headphones. Such a deal! Thank you B&H and Rode!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A solid piece of hardware I definitely bought a nicer microphone than I needed, but I like having nice things on my desk. This definitely makes a statement. When conducting language courses via video-teleconference, my professors have been able to hear my pronunciation much clearer - and they've definitely appreciated that. Build construction and quality is excellent, although the stand (as others have mentioned) could be more stable. The problem is the microphone is so solid and well-build that it becomes too top heavy for the light, plastic stand. If you bump it, it can tip over. This is a small inconvenience for me compared to the quality of the microphone itself.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent usb mic After over 35 years in radio broadcasting, I just simi-retired and was looking for a good USB mic that I could use on the road with my lap top when I went out of town. Although I no longer do a daily radio show, I still record commercials and weather forecasts, etc. from home on a part time basis. For that I use a Shure SM7B broadcast XLR mic on my desktop computer and transfer them to on the air with a special program. But I occasionally go out of town so I needed a good USB mic that I could use with my lap top for recording. After reading many reviews I decided to go with the Rode NT-USB and it has exceeded my expectations. I wasn't sure if this would be good enough for broadcast radio,, but this mic does the trick and really sounds good. Not as deep a presence for vocals as the Shure, it is nonetheless very bright sounding, clear, and is good enough for what I do on broadcast radio for out of town. If you do voice overs for Youtube videos (like I also do), this mic is perfect Be sure to order the OURAY Desktop Reflection Filter mic stand along with the Rode mic, it helps a lot with deadening room noise and gives a better all around sound presence. Great mic.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Sound Quality I happen to say as a newbie podcaster I love this mic. It's definitely a step up from the plug and play iphone/ipad mics that I initially purchased to save money. IT's totally worth the upgrade for sound quality, the ease of use, the fact it comes with a pop shield and it's USB. It's probably not the best for traveling but it does come with a case and it's totally user friendly. Thanks to the guy in the PRO audio department that understood my needs and budget and hooked me up better the second time around.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Do your research, then come back and buy this mic I work professionally in the film and sound recording industry. Lately I have been looking for a compact microphone during my more mobile projects that I can use on my Mac or even phone. I love portable mobile microphones such as the Sennheiser Clip Mic digital, and really wanted a USB mic that could work on my phone. I normally use powered mic's and this is my first USB variant. I researched for probably about two weeks before I concluded that this mic was the best bang for my buck... I wasn't wrong. This mic is amazing out of the box, crystal clear, and super nice to work with. The built in pop-filter is also a great touch. I would recommend this mic ten-fold and have even swapped a few of my xlr mics out for this beauty. Do your research, then come back and buy this mic, you will eventually come to the same conclusion that I did.
