Sound Exceptional on Stream and in Game
The Rode X XDM-50 Microphone makes your voice loud and clear so you can be heard by your teammates whilst delivering the high-quality content your community deserves. Being a condenser microphone with a tight cardioid pattern, the XDM-50 keeps the focus on you whilst minimising unwanted background noise like keyboard and mouse clicks. And, with an internal pop filter and shock mount, plosives and handling sounds are greatly reduced, leaving you with much cleaner audio.
Getting started with your XDM-50 microphone is as simple as plugging it into your computer using the USB Type-C connection. Once connected, users can plug their headphones directly into the 3.5mm output to hear their audio in full definition. The option to monitor audio also makes it easier to know when to use the dedicated dial for level adjustments.
For added convenience, the dial doubles up as a mute button to ensure users can always keep their audio in check. And, if you’re more of an animated streamer, the included 3m headphone extension cable, tripod and 360-degree swing mount gives you everything you need for a flexible setup.
Craft Your Signature Sound with UNIFY
Just like your stream, your audio deserves a personal touch to make it all the more appealing. With the XDM-50, UNIFY can be downloaded for free, giving you access to advanced voice processing. This includes a compressor for extra smoothness, a high-pass filter for more clarity and the legendary APHEX Aural Exciter for sparkle and Big Bottom for depth. You can even remove background noise with the noise gate and fine-tune every processor with granular control for a truly customisable experience.
