The manufacturers promotions seem to be spot on. It is of good solid build quality and the sound is excellent. If you can purchase this microphone for under £160 (May 2020) then go for it, you won't regret it. The microphone package content contains a "small blue ring" this is for taking up the slack of the XLR plug in the back of the mic. I never noticed this at first. My Hi-quality XLR metal plug was slack in the socket causing a break up of sound. I though it was something I had done/disturbed in the back of the mixer. Time spent opening up XLR plugs checking for dry joints only to discover the intermittent sound problem at the XLR connector on the rear of the mic. I removed the metal XLR plug for a plastic one which fitted a bit more truer. Later when tidying up and before a stiff drink I discovered the "Blue Ring" in a small plastic bag which is for using on a loose microphone plug. Why? Are these components not supposed to be made to the same specification? I'm guessing that Rode's own XLR cable will not have that problem. (only a guess). Don't let that put you off, just be aware.
