Excellent stereo mic

Tubester, B&H Photo
13 June 2013
  • Excerpt: Love this microphone with my acoustic guitar. It sounds wonderful. It's a hearty microphone, a bit bigger than I imagined. I bought the optional fuzzy windscreen too. It takes a 9 volt battery or you can use phantom power from your board or recording device.
  • Pros: Clear Sound

Beautiful sound

Eight Armed Studio, B&H Photo
12 March 2013
  • Excerpt: I got the NT4 to use in conjunction with my Sony Z7U. I've been recording live bands for the past 3 years and my current setup is the Sony, Nikon D7000, and a Zoom H4N. I wasn't getting great sound with the shotgun mic on the Sony because its a directional mic and it's better for voice only. I was relying on my H4n for all the live audio which sounds great but I needed another mic as a backup.

Worth It

dmbNIK, B&H Photo
15 July 2012
  • Excerpt: I use my NT4 for nature recordings. The NT4 works well in the field and when combined with the "blimp" system; a hard to beat combo. Does an excellent job of picking up distant birds and wildlife, with an amazing job when the birds are closer in. - Be warned, it is heavy; read the specs.
  • Pros: Clear Sound, Durable
  • Cons: Bulky/Heavy

Review of Rode NT 4 Microphone

kpearlyedition, B&H Photo
26 April 2012
  • Excerpt: Naturally if a person is going to review a microphone the most helpful thing would be for people to hear it. Unfortunately after posting a number of reviews, I found out that they were all rejected because I put a link in to you tube. We used it to record a blue grass band named kevin pace and the early edition.(kpearlyedition). I record them to put on you tube. I thought the mic gave us great sound. I suppose if you went to you tube you could hear this mic.

A decent XY stereo mic

MikeS, B&H Photo
3 April 2012
  • Excerpt: I don't have the money to buy a Scheop's or a Sanken. This mic is a reasonable alternative and seems fairly widely used for field recordings for SFX work. It is less of a problem to set up and move around because the XY micing is one unit, as opposed to two separate mics While not "perfect," it is perfect for my budget and uses. Fits inside the modestly priced Rode Blimp, too, for outdoor use.

What a mic! Perfect for what I needed!

Marty B, B&H Photo

  • Excerpt: Ok first of I don't write many reviews. So me saying something about this mic means something to me. I was trying to find a great mic to use with my sound devices 702, to record live acoustic guitar/piano w/ vocals. I got a AT4040 originally. That was a decent mic, but REALLY gave me a "hollow" sound. Lots of background noise, and was not an x/y stereo sound like I wanted. If something fell downstairs or anywhere within 100 ft from me, you could hear it in my recording.

Excellent matched X/Y pair of microphones for drum overheads

ntnsystems, Ebay
12 August 2011
  • Summary: Excellent stereo imaging on this microphone. Amazing improvement over my previous X/Y configuration with two indepedent condenser mics. I also like that it is a factory matched pair! It is mostly neutral sounding except a subtle high end boost... but not harsh or shimmery. It made my hi-hats sound a little more crisp (less dark) than how I hear them in the room, but I like it. Crashes sounded natural and it seemed to catch the transients well.

Massive piece of gear

bob, B&H Photo
9 May 2011
  • Excerpt: Having a matched set of high quality stereo microphones on one unit is great. This is a seriously heavy piece of equipment, almost prohibitively heavy when placed on top of a medium sized video camera (like a panasonic hpx-170) Great audio, nice carying case.
  • Pros: Clear Sound, Compact, Easy To Use
