Awesome quality for a very reasonable price but needs an amplifier
Ronfontu 25.01.2021
I use this microphone for podcasting.
I first ordered two of these mics without any amplifier (Cloudlifter, Thomann FetAmp, TritonAudio FetHead, Klark Teknik Mic Booster CT1...) and while I got it working, I had to put the gain on my audio interface way too high. I did some more research and it turns out an amplifier (using phantom power) is all you need. Those (especially the cloudlifters) might be expensive but there are alternatives. Here is my reasoning and why I went for the Thomann FetAmp :

The Cloudlifter was a big no considering its price.
The TritonAudio FetAmp seemed to be a nice alternative while still not so cheap.
The KlarkTeknik CT1 was perfect but out of stock and I needed one asap.

I then went for the Thomann FetAmp which does the job perfectly.

The mic itself has an really great build quality! It sounds really good and an external pop filter is not really needed (I don't have one and the p's an b's don't stand out). It doesn't have many features, but it doesn't need to. The sound has a gread "broadcast" effect which may or may not be desired. I highly recommend this.

Great podcast/announcer microphone
damondimento78 08.08.2020
Built like a tank, reassuringly heavy. Needs a good sturdy mic stand.

Needs lots of gain, I use with an external recorder and a USB interface. I find it needs 90% or more of available gain for a close-miked voice.

What it's good for- podcast recording/narrative recording in a fixed location. I haven't used it "on the go", I have lighter dynamic mics which I would use if I was recording on location. You could travel with it, but it wouldn't be the best choice for that purpose.

You also will need a pop shield, although the mic has one built-in, it is not 100% effective.

You will also need to experiment with mic distance and angle of delivery for best results.

For the price it's unbeatable. Apart from the great sound it's very well built and gives reassurance of longevity.

Recommended (this is the second one I've bought).

Meilleur micro rapport / qualité / prix !
LxoTv 04.07.2021
Le Rode PodMic est tout simplement excellent pour son prix.
La qualité de la voix est excellente, en ayant vu des reviews et l'ayant testé par la suite, je pense qu'il peut rivaliser avec un Shure SM 7B , mais 3 x Moins cher !

J'ai couplé le micro avec une Focusrite Scarlett Solo, c'est juste le top !
J'ai trouvé un défaut, c'est simplement l'absence de controles, settings sur le micro et son poids, quand même presque 2 Kg !

Has a Broadcast sound quality to it.
The Wildman 04.04.2021
It works very well for voice-over work, especially when used through heavy compression.
Sounds great.
It has no switches or settings to alter.
It is heavy.
It has great build quality.
It has a great swivel mount.
It looks great on camera.
It is a Cardiod microphone.
Very nice mic sound quality to it, that is typical of a Cardiod type mic, which is what I was after.
Extremely low output though. I had to buy an inline Gain booster to before I could actually use it for any work.
I paired it up with an 'SE M1 Dynamite' gain booster, and it now has an acceptable level to work with.
As a point of comparison:
While I find a Shure KSM27 condenser mic is great for recording singing, and the Senheisser ME66 is perfect for recording vocal speech on video shoots, this Rode PocMic is better suited for recording vocal Voice Overs.
Highly recommended for this, but just make sure you also buy a 'Pre-pre-amp' (aka 'gain booster') to go with it.
