Zoom ZDM-1 Overview

Tuned to deliver a robust vocal tone with smooth highs and tight lows, the Zoom ZDM-1 is an affordable dynamic microphone that's ideal for podcasters, radio show announcers, rappers, and singers. Thanks to its high SPL handling and broad frequency response, this end-address mic makes it easy to capture your voice with mix-ready broadcast quality.

The large-diaphragm dynamic capsule utilizes a supercardioid pickup pattern to effectively reduce ambient sound such as room noise at the sides of the mic. To isolate the pickup element from handling noise, vibrations, and rumble, the ZDM-1 employs an integrated shock-absorbing mechanism. The ZDM-1's integral humbucking circuit improves the signal-to-noise ratio by inhibiting electromagnetic interference from common sources such as wireless devices, power lines, computer displays, and more.

The all-metal body and grille afford ruggedness and durability for reliable use session after session. The ZDM-1 includes a pivoting mic stand mount for easy positioning and a custom windscreen for attenuation of plosives and breath noise.

Zoom ZDM-1 Reviews

Surprisingly great mic!

By Gregory

This is an outstanding broadcast/podcast mic, especially for the price. It is warm and tailored for vocals and is not harsh in the mid-range or thin in the highs. It is a perfect starter mic for a home studio or podcast setup (and it may end up being more than a starter!).

Good But Not Sure Yet

I received this mic and was looking forward to testing out the quality. As I removed it from the box I noticed some movement and wasn't exactly sure what was loose inside. I thought about sending it back but I also wanted a peek inside to determine what was loose. I also turn it around a few times and realized it was the capsule and it was completely loose. I took it apart and it seems that it was not inserted completely into hole. There wasn't a way to secure it but there was some sort of adhesive. I pushed it in firmly and hoped that it would hold. So far so good. I've used it once so far as a guest mic for our podcast. The audio quality is pretty good. Since I'm not traveling with this mic and it will remain in the studio I'm not concerned. It possible that someone rushed putting it together and didn't secure it properly. Overall, I like the audio quality and for the price, it does very well against other higher priced mics like the SM7. The windscreen does a great job against plosives. Aside from the capsule being loose, I'd highly recommend this mic.
