Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable?
This thing is built like a tank. Rode made sure to put in some durability into this mic.
What do you consider to be the best features of this product? What features would you add to this product if you could?
This mic has some great features, USB being the top feature which is great when you just need to plug in and start working on your recordings right away. The headphone output with a volume control is just great for monitoring right from the mic.
Ease of Use
How easy is this product to use? How easy is the product to use with other products? Did it take long for you to learn to use this product? Was the manual helpful? How playable do you consider this product to be?
Absolutely the easiest mic I have ever used. Just plug in the mic via the supplied USB cable and windows recognizes the mic.
How is the tone?
The sound is just super! I really don't have to use much in the way processing to get a great sound. I use it with the Rode shock mount and It just sound really good and clean. I sometimes use a pop filter because I tend to pronounce my plosives and sibilants heavily. But keep in mind that I use the mic strait on axis and at 2 inches of distance. I have experimented with an angled technique and no pop filter and it sounds great also. I sometimes use it a couple of inches away to get more of the room ambiance. No matter how I use it it sounds amazing.
