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!

A solid choice
String Ninjas #1, 16.05.2021
Bought this mic as a quick vocal recording mic that is permanently rigged to my home studio set up. The mic itself is very robust, sturdy and well made. It’s recording ability is extremely good giving both warmth and clarity to my voice overs and singing. The addition of the highly effective pop cover is great and really adds to the overall professionalism of the set up. I would 100% recommend this to anyone who is after top quality vocal recordings but who is also on a budget. This microphone is a keeper.

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

Better than what I expected
RafaelSaldaña, 01.07.2021
It's my first Rode mic and I got very surprised with the building quality. The sound is just what I was looking for, a neutral sound that could let me use it for different purposes and not only for voice recording.
Also, I use it with a Focusrite Clarett 4pre, and with the "Air" mode it's just perfect for voice because it gives that bright that you want in a voice, so I'm very happy with this mic.
