Ok for beginners but there are better options for less.
emememem, 02.01.2020
These are well advertised as "THE" home studio mic.
Firstly. I would instead recommend something like the Audio Technica AT2020, or the AKG c3000. Both very good mics for the money, and both feel much more robust than this thing.

Pros: fine for modern pop vocal sound, very pronounced high end.
Not awful as an overhead.
Visually, it looks pretty good.
sounds fine as an acoustic guitar mic.

Cons: Very harsh around 3k.
a strange problem that I had with this mic, more than any other condenser i've owned, is that it's extremely moisture and temperature sensitive, if it's anyways cold or damp, it just refuses to work.

The shockmount that comes with it is pretty brittle, the attached pop filter snapped off within about 3 months.

I say your money would be much better spend buying an At2020, a good universal shock mount and a pop filter.
Also, definitely bear in mind that a lot of the five star reviews here are from people who might never have owned a condenser before. Take it from someone who's no expert, but has tried every budget mic under the sun, your money is much better spent on something else.

Sehr gutes Mikrofon for das Geld!
FrankWilleke, 30.03.2021
Ich habe mich einfach aufgrund der Bewertungen und des Preises für das NT1-A entschieden, und bin wirklich sehr angetan.

Der Klang ist wirklich detailreich, Sprach- und Gesangsaufnahmen kommen sehr fein aufgelöst und natürlich daher. Der Atem und feine Sprachnuancen gewinnen stark an Gewicht, was mir sehr gefällt. Auch akustische Gitarren lassen sich sehr fein damit abnehmen. Ich persönliche empfinde den Klang trotz des abfallenden Charakters im hohen Frequenzbereich immer noch als sehr hell und kristallin, weshalb ich gerne im EQ die Höhen noch etwas weiter senke, oder auch mal einen De-Esser einsetze. Ein bisschen wärmer dürfte es noch sein, aber das ist eine Geschmacksfrage, und kann nicht dem NT1-A vorgeworfen werden. Die Wärme mach ich mir einfach mit einem Röhrenpreamp dahinter.

Die Qualität des Mikros beurteile ich als sehr gut, aber einen Stern Abzug gibt’s für die Spinne. Da ist vorne ein Teil des Mikrofonrings so nah an der äußeren Aufhängung, dass es schon bei leichtem Antippen dagegen stößt, was natürlich lautes Rumpeln in der Aufnahme verursacht. Wäre noch ein Millimeter mehr Abstand wär’s einfach sicherer bei stärkeren Erschütterungen.

Unmatched for price
James123456789, 30.07.2020
I have been using these ode mics for while now and i believe that for the price, they are completely unmatched.

Build quality is up there with mics hundreds of pounds more expensive and sound quality is the best you'll get at this price range hands down, and it definitely punches above the price range too.

I spend alot of time online reseaching gear before i buy and evey search or comparison i came across said this was the mic to go for for my budget and i was not dissapointed at all. The high response is crystal clear aswell as the lows, and the mids are rounded out nicely too - very low noise when recording and it can deliver on punchy vocals, soft vocals, drums and acoustic instruments as well as performing very well as a room mic.

I'd be hard pressed to buy a different mic at this price point and would go as far as to say it's one of the best up to double/triple it's price, of course i'd like to upgrade, but given the quality of the product and the value for money, it doesn't make sense to unless you can really increase the spend and the quality of microphone.

Overall incredible quality and value fo money
