RØDE Introduces PodMic for Podcast and Broadcast Use

RØDE Microphones has launched the PodMic, an XLR-connected, end-address dynamic microphone designed for speech applications in podcasts and broadcast studios.

RØDE released the new mic following the release of its RØDECaster Pro Podcast Production Studio. It works on the company’s PSA1 studio arm. Stylish and easy to maneuver, the PodMic was designed for use as a broadcast microphone for voices.

RØDE said the new mic has a richly-detailed dynamic capsule, an internal pop shield and double-mesh housing for excellent plosive and sibilance control. The case is made of solid brass with a hard-wearing matt black finish. The new mic was designed in-house at RØDE in Australia.

“This is the best end-address dynamic microphone in the world at this price and one of the best at any price,” said Damien Wilson, RØDE’s CEO. “Peerless quality and price accessibility have been the cornerstones of our success and continue to ensure RØDE is the choice of today’s creative generation – the PodMic is a perfect example of that ethos.”

The microphone will retail for $149 and ship in January, 2019 with a special introductory price of $99 in the United States.
