What customers say about "Size & Weight"
Rode Podcaster USB Dynamic Microphone
  • It's definitely high quality. It's a heavy mic.
  • Heavy and durable.
  • Solid Construction. It's built like a tank.
  • Sounds great, audio like much more expensive mics or better, bullet proof construction.
Rode NT-USB Condenser Microphone
  • The microphone has a metal body and has good weight to it. I am very impressed with its construction and voice quality.
  • It's probably not the best for traveling but it does come with a case and it's totally user friendly.
  • Size, you say? This mic is big. REALLY big. It's larger than the Blue Yeti. and it doesn't fold away easily.
  • I am giving it 4 stars due to the reason if it being so heavy. It makes it hard to keep it on a microphone stand due to the weight.

  • Noise reduction is unmatched.

Rode NT-USB Condenser Microphone
  • I am no audio pro, but for the training videos we have been putting together (10 hours total produced video) they have worked extremely well, no gain, no post required on any of the audio.
  • This mic has an amazing tone, its warm and clear on vocals.
  • I purchased this microphone to record photography tutorials in conjunction with a screen recording tool. It's easy to set up and use and the sound quality is outstanding.
  • The sound is excellent. Deep bass, the upper frequencies are clean and bright without falling into sibilance. This is a great mic for acoustic instruments.
  • Very good quality sound. I have used it to record alto saxophone & flute, and it does a very good job capturing the sound of these horns. Great buy for the price range.
