Rode PodMic USB Ultraversatile Dynamic USB + XLR Microphone

Connect to a preamp or interface via XLR or direct to your computer via USB with the Rode PodMic USB, a dynamic mic that's ideal for streaming and podcasts.

Engineered to provide a versatile workhorse for podcasting, streaming, gaming, and content creation, the PodMic USB is one of the most flexible microphones ever made by RODE, delivering all of the robust features of the original dynamic PodMic but now with optional USB-C connectivity, allowing you to use either analog or digital connections. When using the XLR output, the PodMic USB performs exactly like its predecessor, albeit with an improved studio-grade internal pop filter for pesky plosives. When utilizing the USB-C output, you gain access a range of superflexible features including a high-gain low-noise Revolution preamp, pristine-quality A/D conversion, and advanced DSP that adds professional APHEX vocal processing to your recordings.

With the appropriate adapters, the PodMic USB fully supports smartphones and tablets for recording anywhere, anyway you want. You can easily keep a hand on your signals with zero-latency onboard monitoring via the 3.5mm headphone output and a dedicated volume-control wheel. The PodMic USB is also fully compatible with the complete RODE software suite, including RODE Central, RODE Connect, RODE Capture, and UNIFY, making it easy to bring broadcast-quality audio to a wide range of applications.
