Rode have today announced the NTH-100M, a new headset edition of their recently released headphones equipped with a broadcast-grade microphone. Rode say that this latest model offers all of the same features as the original, and provides an ideal solution for media and broadcast, podcasting, streaming, and conference call applications. The microphone is also available as a standalone accessory, meaning that existing users of the NTH-100 are able to turn their current headphones into a headset.
The included boom arm microphone (the NTH-Mic) is equipped with a miniature condenser capsule which promises to deliver clear and detailed voice reproduction, and exhibits an omnidirectional polar pattern. It screws into the TRRS input on the NT-100M’s earcup, where it is held in place by a locking bayonet connector. It has been designed to be positioned to provide optimum protection from plosives, and can be easily removed and refitted as necessary.
Rode specify a frequency range of 20Hz to 20kHz, and a signal-to-noise ratio of 67dB. A self-noise figure of 27dBA is provided, and maximum SPL handling is stated to be 106dB SPL RMS. The microphone comes supplied with a 2.4m TRRS cable, as well as a Y-splitter cable.
