by Steve from United StatesGreat price. Excellent sound! I bought this mic to take on the road. But after hearing it I use on a daily basis. If you do voice over this is a great mic to add to your locker.

sweet, inexpensive short shot
by Karen Michel from Upstate New YorkLightweight, self or phantom powered, sharp sounding short shotgun mic. Sound is just a bit crisp, but for a fraction of the Sennheiser price, what the heck. A great addition to my on-the-go gear.

Besides being a world reknown hypnotist (at least that is what the media calls me) who knows the effect
the spoken word .. and nuances your voice can
have on others ... I love microphones. I have
an arsenal of them .. Shure .. Audio-Technica - Studio Projects, AKG, Rode, Sennheimer .... more than I can remember where I put them.
I ordered the Rode to accompany my new video camera over the Audio Technica and Azden (similar prices) because the Rode NTK (for my voice) is my favorite microphone of all time. I have been testing it against 10 other classic microphones from $1,200 and less for web based audio. To be honest .. the other microphones were adequate .. but there's something about the directional quality of the Rode NTG-2 that just punched out and made you take notice when I uploaded it to the websites. It just added that 'voice of authority' that I was looking for.
It feels weightless in my hads compared to my big tube condensers .. but still packs the kick of a mule. It even can take a battery if you don't have phantom power around.
Man, I don't know what it is about that Rode sound. Even Australians can't believe there is a country that produces some of the finest sounding and cost saving microphones on the planet.
A big thumbs up on this product and to Chris Lewis, my rep at Sweetwater. I love Sweetwater. I'm 2 blocks from Ground Zero in NYC and have spent a fortune with Manny's, Sam Ash and all the 48th street music stores in a 25-30 year period. The service .. man ... like have your own personal music research assistant ... All I have to do is tell Chris what I want to do, how I want it to sound and what I want to spend and Chris and Sweetwater have never let me down .... Just like this Rode Microphone. close [-]
This is the affordable shotgun mic to use for voice-over applications. It's great at eliminating room characteristics, which helps it to capture clean announcer and dialog tracks. It's also excellent for ADR and in the field.
