The Rode NTH-100 Professional Over-Ear Headphones are professional over-ear headphones that deliver exceptional sonic performance and superior comfort for critical listening and monitoring. They are also low-impedance and high-sensitivity headphones, making them very easy to drive with any interface, mixer, or headphone amplifier.
Featuring custom-matched drivers for an incredibly accurate frequency response and a state-of-the-art acoustic design optimised for enhanced detail and clarity, the Rode NTH-100 are the ideal headphones for all forms of content creation, including music production, mixing and audio editing, podcasting and location recording.
Luxurious Alcantara® cushions with Rode's revolutionary CoolTech™ gel ensure maximum comfort, particularly when worn for extended periods, and the fully adjustable headband with their innovative FitLok™ locking system provides the perfect fit every time.
Each pair comes with a high-quality 2.4m straight black cable that is lightweight and unobtrusive, with 1.2m and coloured variants (pink, green, orange and blue) available separately. Also included are a storage pouch, a 3.5mm to 1/4” adaptor for use with professional audio equipment, and a set of coloured ID rings for easy cable identification (these are matched to the channel colours of the RØDECaster Pro and RØDE Connect).
Every aspect of the NTH-100 Headphones has been meticulously crafted to deliver exceptional sonic performance for critical listening, from monitoring to mixing to mastering. They are ideal for all forms of content creation at home, in the studio or in the field, including music production, podcasting and livestreaming, location recording, and video production or editing.
The NTH-100s are remarkably natural-sounding headphones, with a sound signature akin to openbacks but with all the advantages of closed-backs, including superior passive attenuation of external noise and no issues with spill when recording in close proximity to a microphone. They are precisioncrafted to retain every detail and every nuance of sound they produce. In other words, audio as it’s meant to be heard.
The NTH-100s feature custom-matched 40mm dynamic drivers that have been painstakingly crafted to deliver an extremely accurate frequency response and exceptional clarity. Their design is based around a custom voice coil with a four-layer ultra-high-tension aluminium alloy as its core, which is coupled to an ultra-stiff triple-layer Mylar® diaphragm. Together with a rare-earth neodymium magnet, these high-grade components ensure optimal acoustic and electrical performance for extremely low levels of distortion and a highly accurate response across a broad frequency range.
These characteristics are further enhanced by the unique contoured earcup construction. This ergonomic design has been precision-engineered to not only be extremely comfortable but also acoustically optimal, eliminating standing modes and frequency resonances for a more immersive listening experience. The earcups also feature high-density memory foam for excellent noise isolation.
As well as sounding exceptional, the NTH-100s are supremely comfortable. They have been optimised for long-format content creation, with several innovative features designed to reduce fatigue, even during the most arduous sessions.
In addition to delivering optimal acoustic performance, the unique ergonomic design of the NTH-100 earcups ensures maximum comfort. Contoured to the shape of the ears, with bi-directional movement and memory foam these cups gives the headphones a custom-fit feel for any head size or shape - even for people who wear glasses.
The NTH-100s feature luxurious Alcantara® on the earpads and headband. This ultra-high quality material is supremely soft to the touch and also highly breathable. Underneath the Alcantara is a layer of Rode's revolutionary CoolTech™ gel, which absorbs and dissipates heat, actively cooling the head and ears to significantly reduce wearing fatigue - perfect for lengthy recording sessions.
The headband is fully adjustable and features Rodes innovative FitLok™ locking system, which secures the earcups in place, so they feel exactly the same every time they are worn.
The NTH-100s are packed with functional features that every creator needs from a pair of headphones. This includes cable attachments on both earcups so the cable can be positioned where is most comfortable and convenient; a high-quality locking connector for each attachment, ensuring complete security if the cable is tugged or pulled; easy left and right earcup identification, with luminous letters, colour-coding and braille; and more.
The design of the NTH-100s is instantly iconic, with clean lines and sleek finishes. They are also built to withstand the rigours of creating day in, day out. Every pair is made in RØDE’s state-of-the-art manufacturing facilities in Sydney, Australia using high-grade materials: the headband is high strength spring steel with a durable, scratch-resistant coating; the Alcantara headband and earpads are highly durable and easy to clean, and the easy-roll cable is extremely resistant to wear and tear. These components are also user-replaceable and can be taken off and swapped out in seconds. The FitLok headband also minimises movement, further enhancing durability.

It also features RF-bias circuitry to ensure reliable performance in adverse environments, with excellent resistance to high humidity, severe cold, damp, and dust. The perfect location recording mic.
The NTG5’s body design has been completely overhauled, with circular acoustic ports replacing the linear slots found in other shotgun mics. The revolutionary design – the result of many months of specialised testing – delivers unmatched acoustic transparency, and a natural, uncoloured sound that will sound superb in a wide variety of applications.
The NTG5 features a short, super-lightweight aluminium body (just 76g!), making it one of the most compact professional shotgun mics out there – a dream for boom operators who find themselves on long shoots, or filmmakers and sound recordists looking for a more portable and lightweight rig that delivers broadcast-grade audio.
With a tightly controlled frequency response, low self-noise, highly directional supercardioid polar pattern, and smooth off-axis response, the NTG5 sounds spectacular in a wide variety of applications, while RF-bias technology and conformal coating ensure superior performance in harsh environmental conditions. It’s the perfect mic for location recording and demanding filmmaking scenarios where superlative audio is imperative.
Designed to Withstand Adverse Environmental Conditions
When your work takes you outdoors, you're bound to encounter humidity and condensation, which can cause many mics to fail. The NTG5's RF-bias technology and conformal coating provide excellent resistance to moisture, cold, and dust, allowing you to reliably capture high-quality audio in normal and adverse environmental conditions.
The NTG5 was engineered for transparency and all-weather performance. The combination of the NTG5's 8" long body, revolutionary circular acoustic ports, and supercardioid polar pattern yields focused on-axis directionality, smooth off-axis response, and a transparent tone with a tightly controlled low end. Its ultralow self-noise of 10 dBA and highly sensitive condenser element communicate detailed audio unburdened by the hiss that plagues many low-cost microphones.
Thanks to its 3-pin XLR output and compliance with 48 VDC phantom power, the NTG5 is compatible with a variety of handheld audio recorders, field recorders, and mixer adapters as well as built-in preamps on many camcorders and cinema cameras. The included short XLR cable—designed for use with the supplied pistol grip—features Neutrik and Switchcraft connectors and an integrated strain-relief junction box.
Windshield and Windscreen for Reduction of Wind Noise
The NTG5 has a foam windscreen to reduce unwanted light wind noise. For maximum reduction of wind noise in indoor or outdoor environments, swap the windscreen for the included furry windshield.
The Rode Blimp Windshield is the ultimate windshield and shock mounting system for RØDE shotgun microphones, as well as any third-party shotgun microphone up to 325mm in length. It features a Rycote® Lyre® suspension system for superior isolation from handling noise, plus an ultra-lightweight and ergonomic handle. Housed inside the grip is a heavy-duty Mogami® cable that splits via a junction box to a flexible thin cable inside the Blimp, which minimise the transference of vibration to the microphone.
The Blimp attaches to any standard boompole with a 3/8-inch thread attachment at the base. The Universal Blimp Mount is available as an option to remove the handle when the Blimp is being used primarily on a boompole. The Dead Wombat windshield, caring brush and tail/patch cable are included.
The Rode Boompole is a precision-balanced professional boompole for location recording. Machined from high-grade, lightweight aluminium, the Boompole allows you to mount your microphone securely and swivel it in a range of directions to easily follow your sound source. It has a reach of 3.3 metres and weighs 980 grams.
