Rode Reporter overview

  • 1Description

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.

Ergonomic die-cast body
Anti-glare matte black finish appears discreet on camera
Multi-layer wind protection
Does not require phantom power, enabling the use of field recorders without the ability to supply it
Extra long balanced handle allows for comfortable handling and allows you to get closer to a sound source
Removable two-sided polycarbonate/ABS plastic microphone flag for display of your organization's logo
Designed in Australia

    Rode Reporter reviews

    Reporter Omnidirectional Handheld Interview Microphone is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 17.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid Interview Mic I have only used it at a couple of events so far, but this mic is turning out to be a solid investment in my audio kit. Pros - built-in pop filter that really works - good rejection of wind noise - easy to us for people who have never held a mic before - low handling noise - seems very well made so far - very aggressive pricing: you can't do better for the money Cons - that ridiculous mic flag: just toss it out when you buy this thing - says Rode clearly in all my shots. I'm not advertising for you to free. Hard to Greek out on a grey microphone - included bag is ok, but could hold five of these mics. Why so big? For that mic flag nobody will use?

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fool Proof! I recently purchased this omnidirectional microphone for our social media team. They were having a lot of issues recording good sound and training them in the proper use of professional ENG gear just wasn't an option. This mic is the right combination of size, weight and versatility. Its internal wind filter an omnidirectional recording allows an interviewer a lot of leeway in terms of mic placement. Even if its windy out, and the microphone is moving around from subject to subject this handheld rode will still capture you top notch sound.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from worked beautifully 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.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from professional, sturdy, AA quality I paired this mic with a senn ew100 g3 transmitter. The performance is outstanding! I couldn't be happier. The build quality is really good to, super durable and strong. I feel I will have this mic for many years without problems.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very good sound, long handle a plus The Rode Reporter has very good sound even when held as far as a foot from the speaker's mouth. The sound is rich and full. The long handle is helpful in interviews. The strange and nontraditional microphone flag is somewhat intimidating but does not have to be used. If you do use it, read the simple instruction on how to remove it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best investment for the amateur reporter So I bought this to be used when recording interviews with my ZOOM H4n Voice Recorder (another gem of a product for reporters or other audio professionals). Connected via XLR cable, this device is the perfect size and weight to carry around the town and use for interviews or other recordings. RODE is my go-to brand when it comes to audio equipment. I pretty much don't leave home without this fine device if I am going to be covering any kind of event. My perfect rating is only of the microphone. The pop-guard attachment that comes with it is simply a plastic flap that serves very little purpose aside from a cosmetic attachment, but it does help as a place to attach your company/website's logo when interview on screen. The bag also has a faulty zipper. My slider broke the first day I used it. The bag itself does serve to carry both the mic and a 6-foot XLR cable.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for interview ! Doesn't need power, easy to use. Practical shape, no sound of hand friction. Plug in a DSRL, there is the current noise , you need an adapter cable to match .
