Well-made onmidirectional microphones are supposed to sound pretty even, with no on- or offaxis frequency lobes. I spent some time moving around the capsule in search of beams, peaks and nulls but found no axial anomalies. The RØDE Reporter is a lightweight, but solid piece of gear.

My Classic II always performs excellently... It has a clean clear sound which I find sits very well in mixes both dense and sparse. In my experience, singers respond to the look of the microphone almost as much as they do to their headphone mix, and that response can be heard in their performance.

I can see myself making great use of the iXY for interviews, recording speakers at meetings and capturing ambient sound for my documentaries

I love your microphones and I would say in all truth that, in my experience, your microphones can take the pepsi challenge against any challenger and come out with the blue ribbon..

Have to say I'm liking the mic a lot already [VideoMic Pro]. I shoot with Canons (7D, 60D) and much smaller Panasonics (GF1, G2) and the form factor is absolutely spot on. Another huge positive has been the level of personal communication I've received

In my opinion this is probably the most affordable professional-level large diaphragm microphone on the market – and it comes with a 10 year warranty. At the end of the day, I was in love with the sleek design and simple functionality. This mic will get the job done.

If you need a multi purposes mic for recording or live use, you can't go past the M3 in my opinion. Amazing value.

RØDE Microphones is synonymous with professional quality and durability… I personally own a number of RØDE products and they’re used quite regularly.
- Paul Lau, Canadian Musician
I expected quality from RØDE, but I didn't expect such excellence in a mic with a price range so far below the competitors. I will definitely continue with such a rewarding company.

The M1 is the most versatile workhorse live mic I have ever used... I will never use another live vocal mic.
