Nicely quality done in a budget friendly price
KIDEN , 06.07.2020
This is the first mic I have bought for my home studio. It served as a general purpose microphone, though, it is mainly for vocal uses as it is a condenser mic.

The microphone itself is pretty transparent I must say, this enables me to craft the sound into anything I wanted it to be through mixing. I heard that the old NT1A gives a much brighter sound in comparison to the NT1, which is more flat and dull without any post processing. However, this is definitely what I aimed for.

The neutral sounding aspects definitely could be a pro and con at the same time, but generally I loved how I could push the recording into different tones through post processing! LOVE IT!

The noise floor is okay in this is mic, in my home studio it worked well. Since I plug the mic into my interface directly, the noisefloor is not the best as the mic should be, I recommend getting a preamp if you want to have the mic sound much better. It gives a lot of clarity too!

Detailed neutral recordings
Van den Heuvel, 27.07.2020
In my opinion the NT1 is a great mic for smooth en detailed recordings. Because there is not a very prominent EQ character to it the RØDE is very useful for in-the-box coloring afterwards.
Its really beautiful on vocals, acoustic guitars and also useful for drum overheads when you got two of them.
I only find that the lows are a little bit boxy. It doesn't breathe as much as other mics I used in the €200-400 price range. You have to use an high-pass (not on the mic) to control this.

+ neutral but detailed
+ very low noice
- it lacks a little bit of definition in the lows

More than I wanted. This is what I needed!
Kiriye, 22.10.2020
I saved monye for 3 months to buy this microphone + Scarlett Solo 3rd Gen. It was an exciting and important purchase for me and recording my audio poems in russian. Today parcel finally Arrived and I love how I sound in this mic. Looking forward to record on him many poems!
One big pro for me — it's super neutral frequency response, So I can totally edit records from "zero".
P.S.: As you can see, I'm not native speaker, so sorry for my bad english :)

Excellent Microphone!
Garron, 25.10.2014
This microphone just sounds great.
Anything you put on front of it is captured beautifully, i have used it for acoustic guitar, male vocals, Female vocals, I have used it for both soft and aggressive music and everything just sounds fantastic!

It sounds clean, with lots of detail throughout the entire spectrum! it also doesn't pick up a whole bunch of unwanted noise like a lot of other condenser mics i have used have so i would definitely recommend it to anyone who doesn't have the quietest of rooms to record in!

The pop filter it comes with is fantastic, its a plastic mesh so you dont have to worry about it getting torn! and you can give it a rinse every now and then to make sure its clean!

The shock mount is sturdy! and holds the microphone nicely, i have had problems before with shock mounts slipping on me as i am trying to record, but this one is fantastic!

5/5 Would highly recommend! the best mic i have tried in this price range!
