Rode X XCM-50 Review: Solidly Streamer-Ready

Australian microphone brand Rode has decided to make a play for a spot on our list of best gaming microphones — under its brand new gaming and streaming division, Rode X. Rode X launched last month with two USB mics — the XCM-50 and the XDM-100 — both of which sport familiar designs (but in gamer-friendly black and red). 

The Rode X XCM-50 is a compact condenser mic that takes its outer aesthetic from the Rode NT-USB Mini. This small, sturdy side-address cardioid mic features a full-range 20 – 20,000 Hz frequency response, records 24-bit/48 kHz audio, and sounds great out of the box. It has a built-in swing mount and can be mounted on a boom arm, though it also comes bundled with Rode’s premium Tripod 2.
