Important information about purchasing from the US.
If you see a price that looks too good to be true, it probably is! Beware of counterfeit goods. Check our website to make sure you’re purchasing from an authorized RØDE reseller. For quick reference NO FBA reseller (FULFILLMENT BY AMAZON) on Amazon is authorized. You can view a current list of unauthorized US dealers here.
The maximum SPL reading of a microphone is the maximum sound pressure the microphone can handle before it will distort or fail.
Microphones should not be kept in SPL zones above their maximum rating as this may damage the capsule.
Keep in mind the most RØDE microphones can cope with a sound pressure of 130dB SPL, this is equivalent to a jet engine at 100m or more importantly the threshold of pain, so if you're hurting, so is the microphone!
