Excerpt: Our production company has used these for quite some time. They are our favorite of the shock mounts. They are easy to get the mic into and provide good isolation from the banging of the boom pole. However, like many shock mounts in this price range, they aren't too robust. They break fairly easily so make sure to have a spare.
Pros: Clear Sound, Easy To Use, Lightweight, Versatile
Excerpt: Great Product. Its compact size is really useful for indoor use in tight spaces. Handling noises are greatly reduced. The rubber bands can be a bit slippery and the mic tends to slide out of its position but a small turn or two of tape on the mic fixed everything. Bottom line a must have in the bag.
Pros: Compact, Easy To Use, Lightweight, Reduces handling noise
Excerpt: Although this shock mount is designed for shotgun microphones I use it to hold my Rode NT4. It is a tight fit, but the microphone is completely suspended by the silicone rings and does not touch any part of the frame. The joint is sufficiently tight that the mount does not tilt on its own although the NT4 is not light weight. I do not agree with some of the other reviewers who say that the joint is too lose.
Excerpt: I thought it would be a great product like the sm3 and that it only does not have a shoe mount.It is so , but their is no screw to hold the head in position, once your boom is up it will be loose and you cant boom with an angle. I had to strap a Velcro and attache it to the boom. DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY ON THIS ITEM. Rode should withdraw this product from the market.
Excerpt: I wish the bands could be tightened, but then that would mess with the sound transfer, wouldn't it? But for what I use it for, recording local bands live, it's a great deal. If this is mounted on a mobile/moving platform (camera, truck bed, etc.), then I expect it would be problematic. For my applications, it does keep noise from traveling into the mike body, so I love it.
Pros: Clear Sound, Compact, Durable, Easy To Use, Lightweight, Versatile
Excerpt: As far as entry level shock mounts go, this is a decent option. My only complaint is that the previous model had a screw at the mount's pivot point to adjust tension, a feature missing from this item.
Excerpt: So i have a K-Tek Boom pole and this fits perfectly on it. I don't really see any thing wrong about the product nor do i see anything great or outstanding. It just gets the job done. Although i do find it a little pricey for the the way it is manufactured. then again who am i to judge on the prices. if others go for 200 or more. overall it is a good product.
Pros: Compact, Easy To Use, Lightweight, Versatile
