A microphone of solid quality, at a mostly reasonable price
Eddlicious, 15.01.2018
I've used the Rode NT-USB to play and record my singing and guitar playing at the same time, and for my first ever condenser microphone it has been a delight.

PROS:
+ The quality of sound is very good, with high pitched sounds not causing any distortion if you've got your audio settings in check
+ Microphone has an audio jack built in to it, so that you can listen to your own voice through a headset, which is practical for those learning to sing
+ Quite literally plug and play, with it only taking as long to get working as your computer takes to recognize it
+ I've had no complaints about background noise when used to converse with VOIP (Voice Over IP, voice chat - e.g. Skype)
+ Microphone's build is very robust, it being primarily made out of metal, yet comfortably weighed

CONS:
- The plastic stand is not quite heavy enough to support the microphone in most positions
- Microphone doesn't have its own gain and volume knobs, which limits the amount of adjustments you can make to its sound.

Overall the Rode NT-USB is a microphone of decent quality, at a relatively affordable price.

I Expected Nothing Less
paniccoffee, 11.06.2019
The Rode NT-USB is a breeze to set up with excellent build and sound quality. Recording is loud and good isolation of ambient noise. While it seems expensive, it's really not, considering its features.

Pros:
+Excellent recording quality
+Sturdy
+Easy assembly and set up
+Pop filter included
+Records with lots of volume, but isolates most sounds out of the microphone's direction
+Includes 6m cable!

Cons:
-no case included for all components
-pouch included not enough to fit all of its components

A easily settable condenser mic
Home Recorder, 18.11.2018
I use this mic for a simple or rough home-recording. The driving forces that made me choose this product over other condenser mics are: can be set up without audio interface; comes with a metal pop filter; light weight.

The first driving force can also be a restraint force for someone who really is looking for a high quality recording, as the internal audio interface that this mic has only supports upto 16bit/48khz. However, this was enough for me as I use a studio which has definitely better (and a way more expensive) condenser mics for formal recording sessions.

Secondly, the metal pop filter functions well. They are washable, which means that you don't need to worry about spending on changing pop filters due to the smell and unsanitary condition.

So far, I have been using the mic throughout half a year, and I have no complaints at all.

Pros:
-Easy to set up
-Metal pop filter included
-Distinguished recording quality

Cons:
-Nothing so far

Good microphone !
Konodo, 09.04.2019
Good USB microphone, sturdy, well built, good looking, easy to use.

If I would have to do it again, I would probably get a standard microphone as I now have an audio interface and don't need a USB one... But that's definitely a good choice for anyone who wants to get a USB microphone !

High quality sound for your speech recording or video conference
PE Toulouse, 09.08.2019
Great sound and features. I use the micro for audio recording of rich media and for video conferences. The sound is cristal clear, which means that all sounds like like sniffing or breathing will be captured as well. So: top quality sound, but care to be taken to get no unwanted noises transmitted.

Rode Test!!!!
dodea, 24.02.2015
I have been using studio mics for years so when I saw the price of this I refused to believe that it was any good. How wrong was I? Buy this mic today and never look back. It is so easy to set up, in fact there is no 'setting up'! Take it out of the box, plug it in and away you go!!!!

Exceptional microphone
emanuelsan, 26.01.2018
Bought this microphone for use at my desktop PC during online calls. Everyone that hears me talk through it immediately noticed a huge increase in sound quality. It's quite literally the best microphone I've used: very well built (metal alloy body), very good sound quality, extremely easy to install (literally just plug it into your PC and it works with all of its features).

Regarding the features, it has a no-latency "talk-back" effect, meaning that it plays the sound that it picks up right back into a pair of connected headphones so that you can hear yourself speak.

Additionally, it's so sensitive that, when turned up, you can hear sounds via your talk-back headphone jack that you don't normally hear without it. It picks up sound from all around you with great accuracy. For me, this means that I can just leave it on the office desk far away from me and it will still hear me just fine.

Exceptional product. I strongly recommend it.

An amazing budget microphone
Talbi, 16.08.2018
The Rode NT-USB is a great microphone for beginners - it has great voice clarity and low background noise (of course not as good as an XLR microphone- but for USB its great).

It comes with a 6m USB Type-B cable, a carrying bag, a pop filter and desk stand.

The microphone has a nice metal casing, and a purple LED to indicate its powered and ready. It also offers a 3.5mm headphone jack to hear yourself with no delay.

The microphone is of great build quality from Rode, I will be defiantly be buying from them again.

Versatility and Quality
RobertoFranco, 22.03.2017
I have this microphone for 2 years and i love it! Great cable length, comes with a beautiful windshield (pop filter), desk stank and nice pouch. It?s USB, means if you have an Apple USB to lightning adaptor you can record directly on an iPad or iPhone too. There is a monitor out (with volume) to have a perfect feedback without any delay. It?s solid built and an excellent sound quality that is expected from Rode.

Good microphone with good features at a good price.
12.01.2016
Rode stands for quality and standard. You cannot go wrong with it. Here are my views about this product.

Build: The body of the mic is a solid metal and has a similar built as other NT1 microphones. The pop shield also feels quite solid and comes with a metal filter. It fits well on the stand. Talking about stand, the stand is made up of good quality plastic and holds the mic very well. Overall, impressive looking, sturdy and solid.

Sound: The sound is extremely clear and it is very silent and does not have any static noise. Perfect for studio-grade sound recording at home.

Usage: Very simple plug and play. I just hooked it up to my Mac and that's all I had to do.

To sum it up - For the price, it is a very good microphone. I think I will be using it for a very long time.

Lastly, the shopping experience at Thomann has been great. I ordered the product on Tuesday evening and got it delivered at my door step on Friday afternoon. Also, I found the staff to be courteous and knowledgable.

Brilliant
sean61127, 08.08.2017
Sound quality is very good, look on youtube for a demonstration.
Very well built
There is a large plastic nut that holds the mic to the base/boom arm, i feel this could have been better quality as a rubber ring inside it got dislodged once (but only once). it was easily repaired.
Over all, would definitely recommend.
