Designed for handheld interview and presentation applications, the Reporter features an omnidirectional dynamic capsule that is designed to allow the user freedom of use, without the technique related issues typical of directional end-address microphones.
Additionally its frequency response has been specially tailored for voice reproduction, to maximise intelligibility and deliver crisp, clear results in almost any condition.
The microphone features a durable die-cast aluminium alloy body coated in a discrete matte black anti-glare finish. An innovative multi-layer mesh basket protects the microphone from environmental noise without the need for a bulky and distracting foam wind shield.
It is supplied with a removable microphone ‘flag’ that can accommodate high-visibility branding.
The RØDE Reporter microphone is designed in Australia and covered by RØDE Microphones' industry leading 10 year warranty.
In a world where audio is most often needed immediately, having tools that are ready "now" is key. No time can be spent on looking for the right microphone. With the RØDE Reporter in a news-gathering arsenal, clear and professional audio is a guaranteed result.
Well-made onmidirectional microphones are supposed to sound pretty even, with no on- or offaxis frequency lobes. I spent some time moving around the capsule in search of beams, peaks and nulls but found no axial anomalies. The RØDE Reporter is a lightweight, but solid piece of gear. To back that up, it comes with a 12 month warranty that extends to a 10 year warranty when you register.
Everyone who works in the field of news gathering and reporting should have one of these microphones in their camera bags! The great omnidirectional capsule, the wind protection and its frequency response which is optimized for speech make the RØDE Reporter to a state of the art microphone with clear, broadcast quality sound.
