Podcasters looking for the right mic to bring professional-quality sound to their productions on YouTube, FaceBook, Twitch, and elsewhere have a great option with the PodMic from Rode. This cost-effective, stylish, end-address dynamic XLR microphone is specifically tuned for speech and broadcast. Tailor-made for use with the RODECaster Pro podcast production studio and PSA1 broadcast arm, it can also be plugged into a wide range of pro audio gear to deliver broadcast-quality sound.

Podcast in Any Environment

Most podcasts happen in bedrooms, home studios, or offices with less than perfect acoustics and noises coming from the outside. The PodMic features a dynamic capsule with a tight cardioid polar pattern, great for picking up the speaker while reducing unwanted sounds that are further away or off to the sides.

Get Close to Your Mic

With its end-address design, the PodMic invites you to get right up close and create intimate, broadcast-style voice recordings with a deep and warm tone. Its compact size lets you and your guests see each other and enjoy an open and comfortable talking experience, while the mic stays out of the camera's way when videocasting.

Built to Last

Solid-brass construction with a hard-wearing matte-black ceramic finish ensures that the PodMic will continue to deliver the same level of performance over the years, while still looking great.

Clean Speech without Distractions

The PodMic's internal pop filter and double-mesh housing work to effectively reduce distracting breath and plosive noises (as in "s", "p", and "b" sounds) without the need for an unsightly external pop filter.

Protect Your Sound from Vibrations

The internal shockmount helps to isolate the PodMic from handling noise and vibrations when you are adjusting the mic or if there's a bump or knock on the table. The integrated swing mount that holds the mic further insulates it from low-frequency noises, which could ruin your audio.

Swing into the Right Position

The PodMic has two wing nuts on each side of its built-in mount, allowing you to quickly swing the mic into the right orientation and lock it into place. Mounting the PodMic on the PSA1 broadcast boom arm (available separately) gives you the added flexibility to position the microphone exactly where you want it.

Get Professional Results

Pair the PodMic with the powerful RODECaster Pro podcast production studio to leverage the most out of your microphone. Select the PodMic microphone preset in the RODECaster Pro audio options and matching digital signal processing is automatically applied, giving your voice the depth, presence, and hint of shimmer associated with top professional radio broadcasters.

Rode PodMic Reviews

Amazing Value

The sound quality is fantastic for the price. Unless you are buying a $1000+ audio interface, you can't tell the difference between this microphone and more expensive ones

Solid (And Heavy) As A Rock

For a hundred dollar dynamic microphone, you can't get better quality than RDE. This unit is beautifully crafted of high quality materials. I appreciate the compact design and the front-address system. The solid metal frame is definitely heavy, but if your boom arm can support it (like my Blue Compass can), then it should not be an issue. The only downside is that it definitely is on the quiet side. Perhaps my audio interface doesn't help it, but I have to have the gain all the way up and be pretty darn right up against the thing to produce any decent level compared to my NT-USB. If you have a fancier setup than me, this shouldn't be a problem, but without proper amplification this might be troublesome to deal with.

Great podcast and spoken word mic at a great price!

The Rode PodMic packaged with On-Stage Pop Blocker is a fantastic bundle. My mic locker includes everything from prosumer studio condensers to AKG's and Neumanns. The build quality on the Rode PodMic is incredible

Replaced an old Shure PG58 microphone for my Zoom calls to use with the Rode Boom Arm. Audio quality significantly improved. Also feels super heavy and high quality.

Great mic at a great price

It was this or a used sm7b. I bought this and have had little to no regrets. I might buy the sm7b in the future but I don't foresee it being much better than what I get out of this mic. If I wanted to do more EQ adjustments I know there are ways to improve this mic beyond how I use it now but I'm already satisfied with it as is. Always recommend.

Good Mic for $100

Not a professional, but I like to release the occasional YouTube video, and I wanted to do voice-overs. Started out with a Rode PodMic and a Moto M2. My voice sounded terrible! I wasn't sure where the problem was, so I tried adding a Cloudlifter; no luck. Next I swapped in the Shure SMB7, and that completely fixed the problem. FYI, I needed to keep using the Cloudlifter to get loud enough recordings. Finally, I am happy with my setup.

I'm a happy camper!

If you're like me, you don't always like hearing your own recorded voice, but I have to say I don't feel that way with this mic. It's just ok for singing, not bad, but not special...where it really shines for spoken voice. On the tip of the mic I placed a cheap $12 wind cover (from YOUSHARES) because it gives me a guide how close I can get, as well as evening out some pops and clicks that get through the built -in pop filter system.
