Rode NT4 X/Y Stereo Condenser Microphone


The RØDE NT4 stereo microphone offers a perfect X/Y stereo array without the need for matched pair microphones, complex stereo bars and equipment. Simply place the microphone and capture a realistic stereo field using a single microphone.

Combining an acoustically matched pair of 1/2” cardioid condenser capsules fixed in a perfect 90 degree near-coincident alignment, the NT4 instantly creates a faithful stereo array that is ideal for drum overheads, percussion, choir vocals, environmental recording and sound design in a studio or in the field.

The NT4's versatility is further extended by its ability to be powered by a 9V battery, in addition to 48V phantom power. Both stereo XLR and 3.5mm minijack cables are supplied to ensure the NT4 is ready to record to mixing console, portable recorder or camera.

The RØDE NT4 microphone is designed and made in Australia, and covered by RØDE's industry leading 10 year warranty.

FAQ's

How do I register for the RØDE extended warranty?


Registration for the extended warranty can be made by completing our online registration form.

Once registered you warranty will be extended to either 10 years, 5 years capped or lifetime, depending on your product.

What is the procedure for returning a faulty product?

Please view our FAQ to try and troubleshoot the issue. If you believe the microphone is at fault please contact our distributor in your country of residence for the correct procedure for returning your product. To find your nearest distributor please use our technical support finder here.

DO NOT send any product back to RØDE without first obtaining a unique RMA number from us.

Is my microphone covered by a service warranty?

RØDE microphones come with a 1 year manufacturers warranty, this can be upgraded to one of our free extended warranties by the registration of the microphone on our website. Please register your microphone using the WARRANTY tab above.

Our warranty covers faulty workmanship and faulty components. RØDE may either repair or replace the product at their sole discretion. The product must be returned to the service centre in the country that the product was purchased for service and repair.

Please note: the warranty does not cover normal wear and tear, nor the use of the product in heavily corrosive, polluted or extremely humid environments.

I want to buy a RØDE mic from overseas. Will the warranty be valid?

The warranty is only valid in the country of purchase so in the unlikely event that the mic were to fail it would need to be returned to the country of purchase for repair.

Alternatively, the mic can be sent to a local distributor but they may (at their discression) charge an admin fee for repairing a product that was not bought locally. As we offer a 10 year warranty this is always worth considering when adding up the initial cost of the mic.
