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!

Same as the old NT1a
amiko, 15.08.2017
I bought this expecting this to be more natural sounding than the old NT-1a, like they were advertising. Unfortunately I'm disappointed, this sounds just the same as the old Nt1, which is very bright, and borderline harsh. On the plus side, not too expensive, very sensitive for quiet sounds, and judging from other Rode products, I believe it will be reliable too so it wont break down in few years like the cheapest chinese mics do.
