    Auray Shockmount for Rode Podcast Mics and Mics with M20 Thread

    The Auray SM-RM20 is a suspension-style shockmount designed to be used with broadcast and condenser mics that sport an M20 threaded studs. The shockmount is crafted out of metal to ensure dependability.

    A key feature of this shockmount is its ability to prevent structural-borne vibrations from the stand itself, which can result in hours of editing audio if left unattended at the source. Since this shockmount effectively isolates the mic against such vibration, you will not have to worry about this undesirable, yet all-too-common problem in the studio.

    The SM-RM20 utilizes heavy-duty elastic bands to suspend and isolate the microphone inside the basket. A threaded socket provides a secure locking connection between the shockmount and microphone. This connection is so secure that you can suspend your mic downwards from a boom arm. To facilitate optimum microphone placement, the angle of the shockmount is both adjustable and lockable.

    Classic Studio Shockmount

    The SM-RM20 is compatible with many broadcast and condenser microphones that sport an M20 threaded stud. Whether you're mounting your microphone in an upright position, or suspending it down from a boom arm, this shockmount is an effective studio tool for securing a microphone and minimizing noise.

    Eliminates Noise

    Even the slightest vibrations from the floor can turn into hours of troubleshooting. This suspension shockmount will prevent unwanted and troublesome vibrations, which can transmit through a mic stand, from affecting your microphone's performance.

    Metal 5/8"-27 Mic Stand Adapter

    A metal mic stand adapter ensures a durable and secure connection between the shockmount and mic stand. The standard 5/8"-27 thread fits any mic stand.

    Locking Knob

    The angle of the shockmount can be locked into position with the locking knob for perfect aim to ensure your talent is always on mic.

    All-Metal Construction

    The SM-RM20 is a durable studio accessory that is built to last. The all-metal construction ensures microphone security in professional and home studios.

    Heavy-Duty Elastic Bands

    The heavy-duty elastic bands suspend the microphone in the center of the basket, and they prevent shocks and vibrations from traveling through the mic stand and reaching the microphone.

    Polsen HPC-A30-MK2 Closed-Back Studio Monitor Headphones

    The HPC-A30-MK2 Closed-Back Studio Monitor Headphones from Polsen offer a solution for experiencing rich and natural sound when listening to music through a mobile device or monitoring a podcast on your computer. These headphones can also be used for DJ work, thanks to the swiveling earcups that let you monitor audio while keeping one ear free.

    The HPC-A30-MK2's over-ear design isolates the sound and prevents leakage for optimum listening conditions in loud environments, such as a club or on the go. The 10' cable also gives you the freedom to move around while working and terminates in a 1/8" TRS stereo plug, which is compatible with most mobile devices and computers. In addition, a stereo 1/4" adapter is included to plug into a stereo or mixing board.

    Mobile

    The HPC-A30-MK2 headphones deliver a rich sound for listening to audio on a mobile device. Whether you're listening on a smartphone, an iPod, or a tablet, these headphones deliver detailed sound even in noisy environments.

    Over-Ear Design

    The over-ear design isolates sound in loud environments and prevents leakage for optimum listening conditions. This design is good for listening to music on a busy street, and for DJs who need to monitor their audio in a noisy club.

    DJ Applications

    The headphones are suitable for DJ applications and include a tuned bass response for low-end clarity. The pivoting earcups are ideal for one-ear or on-the-shoulder monitoring. A padded headband offers to keep you comfortable during a lengthy session.

    Broadcast and Podcast

    The headphones allow for monitoring audio on a laptop or in a home studio as well as recording a vlog on a smartphone.

    Swiveling and Rotating Earcups

    If you're a DJ who likes to keep one ear free, you can swivel one of the earcups for on-the-shoulder monitoring. The earcups also rotate 90° so you can turn one of the earcup outward for one-ear handheld monitoring.

    10' Cable

    A headphone cable that's too short is almost like sitting on the sidelines—you can't be part of the action. If you need to move around while you work, the 10' cable will allow you to move about freely.

    Rode PSA1 Reviews

    Pretty good boom arm

    By Davonte
    Rated 4 out of 5
    Date: 2022-01-10

    Using this boom arm with my pc setup has made things a lot easier and kept the clutter on my desk to a minimum. The arm itself is fairly sturdy and if your microphone is at least 2lbs you shouldn't have many problems keeping it where you want it. The only gripe I really have with this product is that where the arm meets the desk c-clamp mount could be a bit more sturdy for what you pay for. Noticed that it was a little rocky but not too much to notice if you aren't bumping your desk too hard. Overall a great boom arm that I can say is worth the money.

    If you need an arm for your mic, you've found it.

    I put off buying this for over a year and when I was putting together my new desk setup I finally purchased it. I feel like a fool for waiting so long to buy something that has literally made my expensive gaming/zoom mic a dream to use. The build quality is great as per usual with Rode and it is easy to adjust or move out of the way. Highly recommend.

    Just Works

    All I needed was a boom to push around and align when needed. This Rode does the job. VERY smooth action by the arm. Maneuvers where you want it AND it (most importantly) it stays there.

    Works as it should

    It's ok

    By Thomas
    Rated 3 out of 5
    Date: 2021-11-22

    The desk clamp part seemed delicate: it would be easy to damage by over tightening. Also, the clamping screws for the post where you attach the mic are hard to use: small, smooth, decorative chrome oval shaped knobs. They need to be very tight or they will slip with a heavy mic and its painfully hard to get that much torque into these knobs, or to loosen them afterwards. Otherwise it seemed fine to me and ok build quality. Returning.

    Good

    the arm doesn't hold its position well. Also the mechanism that holds the mic is poorly designed so the mic is always coming loose and spinning around.
