What's in the Box

Rode Podcaster USB Microphone.
  • Microphone Stand Mount
  • 40" (3m) USB Cable
  • 1 Year Warranty


Seamless integration was the idea, and it was obtained by creating a studio dynamic microphone with unparalleled A/D converters, so that the microphone can be plugged into any computer with no in/out boxes, no expensive computer pre-amps, just a USB cable.

The Podcaster offers an end-address configuration, the clarity of RØDE’s tailored-for-voice frequency response, an ‘ON’ L.E.D, a direct headphone amp, and of course very low self noise.

The microphone comes complete with a 3M USB cable. Optional extras include a shock mounting system and soon to be released Anglepoise style table mount arm.

It’s a must for any musician on the road or in the project studio, but the Podcaster is going to offer solutions to more than just musicians.

The mic opens up possibilities for anyone who records audio—from podcasters, journalists and students to business people adding audio files to websites and multimedia presentations.

Create your own radio show, or let us do it for you, as we have even developed a website to host and broadcast podcasts for RØDE Podcaster customers.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A great mic I used the mic to capture audio during a live seminar for streaming purposes. It handled the task really well even though the conditions were not ideal.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent mic This mic is the gold standard in podcasting, used by the majority of professional podcasters. The sound is brilliant, has builtin pop filter (don't worry about an external), plugs straight into a computer and is ready to go.

Despite being white and looking like plastic in the photos, it's actually solid metal, hence weighty. Australian made and great value for money.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Magical Golden Voice converter I needed a microphone to record narratives for E-learning presentations and podcasting. After using inferior mic's I found the background noise reducing the quality of the presentations, they sounded amateurish. I found the Rode Podmaster USB Micrphone , read reviews and spoke to the Videoguys and decided to give it a go. Best decision. I was able to get rid of a cumbersome desktop sound box, the background noise dissappeared, the sound quality is superb, makes the sound natural and rich.
The build is solid and if your after a light weight mic, this is not it. The feel and weight alone of this instrument gives you great confidence.
One of the attractions for me was the ability to connect straight into my computer with the USB connection, no setup and worked like a charm.
This is a great value Mic, high quality comes with a great warranty, I highly recommend it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Top Notch Mic! Being a Partner with YouTube (, I needed a good mic for doing video game commentaries and I asked a mate who is in a band and he recommended Rode Mic's. Well I took his advice and i'm mighty glad I did! It is very easy to use, just plug it in and away you go. No hassles at all!The recordings are very clear and IF I decide to maybe try other voice acting work later on, I now have a top notch Mic that will be ready for the work.The mic is heavy BUT personally I take that as a good thing since I know it is made to last! not like some cheap plastic mic!Thanks Rode for this amazing Microphone!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brilliant for the price! I cannot believe for the price you pay you get such quality. Planning in the near future to record podcasts and this is perfect. It is well made with a bit of weight and you plug your headphones directly into the Podcaster. Cannot fault it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Clear sound when you want it I use this microphone to record narration for my videos.
The microphone rejects sounds from the back and sides quite well so you hear me and not the PC.
It has a nice green light showing it is ready.
You can plug your sound system directly into the microphone that way there is no lag between saying and hearing the sound.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from It delivers what is promised I record my voice for narration on videos.
The microphone is directional and so the voice is loud and clear but the background noise, like the PC is hardly audible.
The headphone out is very useful as you can hear your own voice, but also any other sound coming from the PC, like the original soundtrack you are recording the narration for.
In short great product.
