Plug & play improvement
P to the ieter, 12.12.2020
Microphone works as a USB sound device. Really as simple as plugging it in, waiting a few second and you're good to go. Normal minijack headphones plug in to the back and there's a potentiometer on the front to control their volume. Very simple, no need to read the manual.

The improvement over the standard computer microphone and a generic USB headset is remarkable. Sound quality significantly improved for interviews and conversations, with much more clarity and detail in the recording. No issues with wind or background noise.

The microphone is much more compact than you would expect from the pictures, it really is a small device which easily fits on your desk with its small footprint. It is quite heavy for it's size, and the stand looks a bit flimsy at first, with it's magnetic connection to the mic, however this is absolutely not an issue and holds the device very well.

It does what it's made for very well, but might run in to challenges when upgrading. It doesn't seem to be compatible with a dedicated mic stand, it only has a minijack connector which is on the back (not the handiest place). But highly recommended for a straigtforward improvement over standard computer sound!

Amazing USB mic for the price
Axel Lessio, 05.02.2021
Wonderful product by Røde, I use it all day for anything: work meetings, recording guitar and vocals, voiceovers for videos, etc. It does a lot and it's very good for the price. Solid build, beautiful design and packaging, good sound and reliable built-in pop filter. I had zero issue with this product so far. Highly recommended if you need a good, inexpensive and compact USB microphone that will just need to be connected to your laptop without any other sound interface, pop filter, etc... it just works.

Best Quality Desktop mic
S.Mohajerani, 05.04.2021
I use this microphone as primary PC input device on online meetings and chatting with friends on Discord/Teamspeak. The clarity of the mic is second to none. My voice is my clearer compared to mic I was using previously and others cannot hear any audible background noise from the mic. the Mic sits roughly, 30cm from the edge of my desk, and the directionality of it is still good for capturing of Audio. the weight and the quality of the mic, should withstand a lot of usage and should last for a very long time.
The stand is made from metal and is very sturdy, the mic itself is made from premium material and has a sleek look to it.

Perfect little microphone.
LuisB., 28.04.2020
I really like this mic.

I'd like to first praise the following: having instant feedback about what the microphone is receiving is a god-send when using in-ears and on, say, a video-call. I vow not to ever again not have realtime monitoring output of my mic.

Worthy of mentioning: this is powered over USB, and whatever noise you get in the power input you'll get it on your monitoring too (not on the signal transmitted back to the PC). I noticed this by plugging the mic to the monitor's USB hub (which then goes to the desktop). Turns out it's a noisy +5V circuit, and this creates ungodly crackling on the monitoring port.

And it's digital crackling, rather than the usual analog noise that is very similar to white-noise.

Please be aware of that sensibility, and don't route your USBs near power circuitry :)
