With a design maximized for use by podcasters, the RODE PodMic Dynamic Podcasting Microphone produces rich, balanced sound. A dynamic capsule with a tight cardioid polar pattern keeps the sound focused on the person talking, not ambient noises in the room. Compact and stylish, this mic naturally lends itself to videocasting, while its durable, all-metal construction is built to last. An internal pop filter helps reduce plosive noises, and an internal shockmount helps eliminate inadvertent handling noise while adjusting the mic. An integrated swing mount connects easily to a desktop microphone stand or a mini tripod, both available separately.
