RODE Broadcaster Microphone Review

If you have been listening to RAWtalk over the last few months you would have heard and seen that we are using the RØDE Broadcaster Microphones. This video review is to try and provide you both the viewpoint from an audio expert, Stephen and an audio novice me.

All I know is that these microphones have given me the ability to sound fantastic on RAWtalk. They are boomy, crisp and clear which is really all I can ask for in a microphone.

You can download sample audio Right Here and determine for yourself if this microphone is for you.

From Rodes web site.

The RØDE Broadcaster is a large diaphragm, end address condenser microphone designed for broadcast voice applications.

Its response has been tailored to give a rich, full, broadcast quality with an emphasised proximity effect, making it an ideal ‘on air’ radio microphone, equally fitting for voice over applications for film and television.

The Broadcaster features an internal pop filter, designed to minimise plosives sounds that can overload the microphone capsule and distort the audio output.

In addition to the Broadcaster’s native 20Hz-20kHz response a selectable high-pass filter at 75Hz is available, which will prevent low end noise such as air conditioners and traffic from being recorded.

The Broadcaster features an innovative ‘On-Air’ indicator on the body that can be wired for external activation by the ‘Channel On/Mute’ function on many consoles. If not connected to a console or switch, the indicator will remain lit whenever the microphone has power. For more information please see the user manual.

The RØDE Broadcaster microphone is covered by RØDE Microphones’ industry leading 10 year warranty.
