Brilliant mic!

stephen c, 27.04.2014
Rode has built it's reputation on building quality mics, targeted to a given price range and end-use.

I can only say that I consider the NT3 an absolutely stand-out performer, especially as I focus on recording (predominantly female) vocals and occasionally acoustic guitar in my home studio and I wanted a quality pencil condenser mic which could also be easily portable and mobile.

This mic is very quiet, very clear, yet smooth across the spectrum with very good sensitivity and certainly manages to produce a close female vocal with both air and body. I also have an AKG C214 which is fantastic and probably worth 2 to 3 times the price and I can honestly say I rate the NT3 almost as highly. Remember, it is a 3/4" (not 1/2") capsule which I judge definitely makes a difference.

If I was starting out again and could only have one mic for sensible money, this would be it for all round quality and features, including portability and battery power. And if I couldn't afford the NT3, I'd buy the Rode M3, which I have also used and my son owns and uses on everything!

Fantastic microphone for the price

28.01.2016
Used for close-miked sit down interviews and in place of a boom mike for confined spaces

Great, really sensitive, good rejection although would seem more cardioid than hyper-cardioid in pattern.

When I'm in a really quiet space I reach for the AT 8010 in every other scenario for close-miking I use this guy.

Excellent warranty as if the Thomann Guarantee wasn't enough, Rode will give you ten years if you register within a certain time after purchase.

I foolishly sold it and have regretted ever since. Just buy it, nothing comes close at this price point.
