Angelina martinez says:

it’s a 16 bit / 48 kHz, so no it’s not the best mic

DanieleMark says:

Erik says:

The Blue Yeti sounds horrible in comparison with the Røde NT-USB.

New Sigmund Freud says:

Thanks. Can you give us a comparison Blue Yeti “PRO” versus Rode NT-USB?

coastertron says:

I’m thinking of buying a usb mic. I’ll be using the mic for voice overs and singing, so is this one a good choice or not? Any other recommendations?

iRhino says:

My rode nt usb works but it just has low audio quality even when boosted to 100 in windows 10 settings

Christian Deleon says:

I love RØDE

Sepacfull says:

I’m using rode nt usb for a year and I really like it so I recomend it too

lampree says:

Wow the Rode sounds so much better!

Angela Litterio says:

Very informative. Thanks for this. I like my Rode mic on my DLSR, so I may go with the Rode external. The sound quality is great for voiceovers. Could you do a video on how to use it with iMovie?

Collin says:

Hello, is there any cable out there that I can use to connect the RODE NT-USB to the mic input of the Sony A6500 ? Thank you.

Qwokey says:

I had to return one of these due to Windows 10 and Mac OS not detecting it, despite drawing power from the USB.

Clara Denzin says:

Does anyone know what sound software to use it with ? (Windows 7)

Michael Crowe says:

I own the above and also a Blue Snowball. As a matter of interest you can connect the Rode U.S.B. as an external microphone with the use of an otg cable. However with the Blue Snowball I had to use a USB power hub also to get it working. The audio quality is much superior than from the phone’s microphone.

It’s called Røde, dummy

CMD Boxing Reports says:
