Røde’s new NT-USB Mini is a compact USB microphone intended for recording directly to a computer or tablet; the new offering is intended for podcasters, musicians, streamers, gamers and others.
Built around a condenser capsule with RF shielding, the NT-USB Mini — which is 89 mm wide and 141 mm high —sports a directional cardioid pickup pattern to reduce room sound and other extraneous noise. A built-in pop filter aids reducing plosives and the mic also comes with a magnetic desk stand that attaches to an integrated 360-degree swing mount within the mic.
Besides the NT-USB Mini’s USB output, it also has an internal headphone amplifier with precision level control and switchable zero-latency monitoring via a 3.5 mm-1/8-inch headphone output, all encased in steel and reinforced nylon resin construction, finished in matte black.
It ships with a USB cable.
