Crystal Clear Quality, Unbeatable Price
After producing an album for a friend who owns this mic and loving its crystal clear quality and top-notch frequency response, I was convinced to buy this microphone myself and use it for my own music. It was the best decision I ever made as a recording artist. The frequency response of this microphone is just about as flat as it gets, which makes it absolutely perfect for just about every kind of vocal style and recording application, because it responds to EQ with outstanding precision. It also has very low self noise, (it has been dubbed the "world's quietest microphone"), and the kit it comes with provides a convenient small bag that can be used to protect the mic from dust. At only $270, this mic epitomizes the term "bang for your buck". I would emphatically recommend it to anyone looking to start a home studio like myself.
A good condenser mic for this price range.
One the mic I think is in my most worth it list. Trust me, after using it for Podcast and some In door Audio recording, this is one of the best value vocal mic worth for single penny.
Due to a slight boost on the Presence and also the decent quality of the capsule, the sound which came out from this mic is definitely outstanding. Noise floor is really low and it is not too picky for pre-amp which even something like a Scarlett 2i2 will record quite a decent quality from this thing. The provided pop filter and the shock mount are quite decent also, it really does the job as what it is.
Since it is a studio condenser, something like outdoor performance recording is definitely not recommend for this. Due to its high sensitivity, normally it is better to use this mic in a acoustically treated room. It doesn't mean you can use it outdoor, it just you might not get the result as you expected.

The NT1 is a new 1" diaphragm condenser microphone from RØDE. Although the body of the new NT1 closely resembles the NT1-A, the microphone has been completely redesigned from the ground up, with the only shared component being the mesh grille. It has been developed with a focus on detailed midrange response, coupled with smooth high frequencies, and warm, round, bass reproduction. The transducer itself is suspended inside the microphone using Rycote’s Lyre system, minimizing external vibrations at the capsule level. The NT1 is an incredibly quiet microphone, measuring only 4.5dBA of self-noise.
