"Thumbs up and arms up!"

This review has been selected by our experts as particularly helpful.
The design is tailored to a Rode Podcaster which I have. That was my reason for selecting this mic arm rather than a higher end, more robust design from another manufacturer. The bad: Although perfectly balanced, the stand isn't tall enough to reach over a 24" monitor (which would be nice). It would be super if Rode would release a larger version of this stand. It glides well, and adjusts easily in any direction (truly the point of this type of mic stand).

Features
The mic mount is 3/8 inch but the mic that it is designed for has a mount that is the standard larger size. (I have had the mic for a few years so I can't say for sure if an adapter came with the mic - but it isn't in the original box - so I'd have to guess that one was not included.)
Ease of Use
Works exactly as I had hoped.
Quality
More lightweight than similar products. But hopefully it will still last for years to come.
Value
It's the only one I found in this price range but there aren't many available. Living in Canada, I can honestly say I wasn't willing to pay the Canadian retail price which was about double. I needed to wait for an American vacation to pick this up on my travels.
Manufacturer Support
I contacted Rode with a pre-sales question. Their customer support was 10/10. I wondered why some people rated this mic stand as poor. Their answer was simple: It's designed and balanced for only one mic, specifically their rode podcaster. With other mics it won't be balanced correctly and you can expect that it would be hard to operate smoothly. If your mic is something else, then don't grab this accessory. Rode anticipates you'll be unhappy in that case.
The Wow Factor
It's the perfect fit if you already have the mic that this was designed for. A definite "must have" when you already have the rode podcaster.

"The boom looks great. It has two ways to mount it to your desk, or other flat surface. One is a very attract clamp that does not"
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
Why so many questions in the review process. The product is great, and so is Zzsounds, enough with the questions. The last block has my review.
Sound
I makes no sound of its own, that is a good thing.
Features
The boom has Velcro cable ties and it shaped at the bends in the shape of a cable. The cable lays smooth and holds firm while you are moving the microphone around.
Ease of Use
Very easy to use, pull, or push you mic where you want it and let it go. What could be easier?
Quality
I can't imagine that it could be better.
Value
Zzsounds beat their competition by a nice margin.
The Wow Factor
Very slick design, Once I added a 45 degree XLR to the rear of my mic it was perfect.

"Quality built but not properly accessorized."
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
I expect it should be a long while before I need to replace this one, however I'm considering an additional one and will probably look else where for more variety.
Features
No accessaries - particularly the adapter for the mic mount. Its a given, isn't it?
Quality
Stout! I'm looking forward to a long lasting product.
Value
If it included the mic mount adapter?!? yes - good price.
The Wow Factor
Had a limited selection - color - have to go with what you can get.
