The ?Rode X XDM-100 ?is a USB-C microphone, featuring advanced DSP and a built-in high-gain preamp for gaming and streaming applications. The microphone’s dynamic capsule is designed to be positioned close to the subject and picks up less unwanted sounds and room reflections from further away, making the XDM-100 well suited for use in untreated rooms and home studios. In addition, the cardioid polar pattern focuses audio capture in front of the mic, picking up less sound from the back and sides for a cleaner and clearer vocal sound.
Plug-and-Play USB-C Connectivity with Headphone Monitoring
- The XDM-100 features Rode’s ultralow-noise, high-gain Revolution preamp, powered via the USB-C bus connection, ensuring a robust signal level for the built-in 24-bit / 48 kHz analog to digital converter.
- A zero-latency 3.5mm headphone jack with volume control and mic mute button allows you to monitor your audio in real time, so you can hear exactly what the mic capsule is picking up.
- A pop shield is supplied to reduce breath and plosive noise.
- The included shockmount helps to isolate the mic and reduce vibration noise.
- A 9.8′ headphone extension cable is provided to give you ample room to move while you’re podcasting, broadcasting, or gaming.
