First off: I'm not a mic-specialist. But for me as a beginner on the mic, this is a really beautiful option with a fairly decent price tag. Next, I should also state that I use this mic pretty often for beatboxing (resp. live looping) and not as a frontman of any band. So this review concentrates on singing and producing beats and sounds with a looping machine. I don't have any alternatives to compare, but for me the mic seems to be pretty heavy. In the beginning, this might be somewhat disturbing, but on the other hand, it also gives the mic a certain value (quality-wise). Concerning the sound, I can't complain too much, it certainly does its job, but there will also be better option on the market. So for me this is a good mic to start singing or if you have a lower budget and desperately need a mic. It features a reasonable sound and a good quality and the cost-benefit-ratio is ok - at least for me as a beginner.
Bought this Mic a few weeks ago as I do a large amount of singing, I seen it advertised on Thomann at around £30 less than the industry standard SM58.
I am currently building a home studio so cost is a massive issue, after reading a few of the reviews I decided to risk it and go for the Rode M1 instead of the sure SM58 & I have to say I am really glad I did.
The sound quality was crystal clear and really smooth in comparison to the sm58 which I also have used and initially set out to buy, would have to say in my opinion save yourself the extra few quid and go for the M1 as the quality both in build quality and sound is on par if not better!!!
