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.

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
