Rode Unveils New Headset for Gamers and Content Creators

Rode barely dabbled with headphones last year, but it’s now ready to launch its first headset — and this time it’s targeting gamers as well as creatives. The NTH-100M retains the NTH-100’s recognisable form but adds a removable condenser microphone. It’s too soon to tell if the gear is actually “broadcast-grade,” as Rode says, but the company’s reputation for microphones bodes well if you want high-quality audio while conversing with colleagues or presenting a webcast. If you already have the headphones, you may purchase the boom mic separately (as the NTH-Mic).

Otherwise, the design will seem familiar. The 40mm dynamic drivers, according to Rode, are intended for precise frequency response with little distortion. If you want a neutral sound for editing podcasts and videos, choose the NTH-100M. Although you won’t get noise cancellation or Bluetooth, the headset will be quite comfy. When we tested the NTH-100, we found the cooling gel and other design elements to be useful for long listening sessions.

The NTH-100M will cost $189, which is $50 more than the headphones on which it is based. If you currently own the NTH-100, you can get the NTH-Mic for $69. This implies that if you were holding out and could utilise the microphone, the combination bargain represents a $20 savings. You might also get the basic 100 for listening and upgrading when you’re ready to generate content.

The NTH-100M is likewise a one-of-a-kind Rode product. While it does not fall under the company’s Rode X gaming brand, it is obviously geared towards gamers and Twitch broadcasters as well as artists and podcasters. In that sense, it bridges the gap between consumer and creator in a manner that even the headphones couldn’t.
