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!

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!

Top budget option
Geril, 26.09.2021
I tested several microphones in the past couple of years but to this day I still love using this one as my go-to for certain projects/recordings (even preferred before pricier alternatives). The character of this microphone is something heavily based on one's opinion but I really like how smooth this one is. Low noise level and promised clarity are not just marketing catches. Another sweat things are the accessories you get with it - in case you're starting out it's awesome to have a pop filter, cable, and a shock mount coming at the package with the mic, even though you already have a couple of microphones at your "disposal" it's always sweet to have these accessories maybe for setup B or just as a backup plan ;)

Everything you heard is true.

I would love to be the one who finds something wrong with the Rode NT1 but honestly it has such a great reputation for a really good reason. The microphone gives an very flat responce with no hyped up high end and the thing is dead silent.... a truly amazing noise floor. I have used it on vocals, acoustic guitars and electric guitars and it shines in every situation you put it in.....Thomann as usuall were on time and well packaged. The rycote shockmount isa nice touch... really strong with 2 layers of metal mesh.... outstanding micophone kit
