PodMic USB: The Ultimate Versatile Microphone
The PodMic USB, an ultra-versatile broadcast-grade dynamic microphone, offers XLR and USB connectivity – just like the NT1 5th Generation – the world’s first studio condenser to offer both XLR and USB connectivity. This powerhouse combines the best-selling PodMic’s sound quality with a range of next-generation features, including high-quality analog-to-digital conversion, advanced DSP, and compatibility with smartphones and tablets.
It also has a zero-latency headphone output, onboard volume control, and support for the whole RODE software suite, including RODE Central, RODE Connect, RODE Capture, and UNIFY, making it the most flexible microphone ever.

Or, in their own words, “perfect if you require fewer audio inputs but don’t want to compromise on audio quality.”
