Røde innovates studio boom arms with the new PSA1+

The PSA1+ is a new professional microphone boom arm from Røde Microphones. It’s built for studio use and aims to support podcasters, streamers and broadcasters.

Smooth and silent movement

The innovative parallelogram spring design of the PSA1+ gives you smooth movement. It also gives you complete control when you’re adjusting the microphone for the best placement.

Røde fully damped the mic’s springs for silent operation. There’s also a neoprene arm cover to silence any mechanical noise. This means you can reposition your microphone without having to worry about the sounds of movement affecting your audio. In addition, the PSA1+ has rubber contact points that provide isolation from accidental knocks, bumps and keyboard and mouse clicks.


Røde designed the PSA1+ to complement your existing studio setup, being compatible with all standard shock mounts. The arm can support a wide range of microphones weighing from 0.2 pounds up to 2.7 pounds. It has a standard 3/8-inch thread as well as an adaptor for 5/8” if you need it.

Flexible mounting

The flexible mounting system can accommodate both end- and side-address microphones. This means you can use it with Røde’s NT-USB Mini, PodMic, Procaster, Podcaster, Broadcaster, and more. In addition, the arm’s integrated cable management system has clips suitable for both XLR and USB cables.

360-degree rotation

Along with its balanced movement, the PSA1+ allows for full 360-degree rotation. The arm has a horizontal reach of 37 inches and a vertical reach of 34 inches, so you can always position your microphone where you need it.

In the box, you get both a threaded desk mount and a padded desk clamp. So, you can quickly and easily install the PSA1+ whether you have a studio at home or a more professional setup.

Pricing and availability

The Røde PSA1+ retails at $129 and is available to order now.
