modtendo's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" a top choice!"

Microphone that has been proven for a long time, choosing the type of record by push button, very dynamic and accurate with a grain that leaves no one indifferent and great value for money!


I had the opportunity in the past to use multiple microphones, and although it holds a candle to the microphones of this type "high-end" often at astronomical prices ... Well built, solid and reliable it is a big hit in home studio (rendered in stunning mix ;-) ).

Anonymous 's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Good mic has great price"

for voice and guitar.
is a static condenser for the studio.
the sound is professional and beautiful if you use a good preamp behind.
those who speak ill have a bad preamp.


1 year.
its very close to the Neumann U87.
the capsule is a copy of neumann.
very good price. Quality rode. Micro Made in Australia.

Anonymous 's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)

Everything has been said ...
micro bright and clean with a slight bump acute.
good build quality, class and fun to watch.
with a good pop screen and possibly offset with respect to the singer is in excellent proximity of the vote (sensuality guaranteed) ... but not all (trying).
it is also sovereign over the head repeatedly battery or battery full stereo.
(I think Steve Gadd and Elvin Jones have a personal pair for that).
but a little less on acoustic guitars (according to my tastes), at least alone.


I use it for 5 years.
its price / quality ratio (of okaz) remains despite Chinese competitors.
it is very close to the TLM 103 for my taste ... but for the price of tlm you have two more nt2 an Oktava MK12 cardio!
precision in the treble can be an asset for home studio can get a little, to recover from the proximity effect and reduce the input gain (and not to over-dub ambient noise, which he is very sensitive).
a tube pre or a sweet joe meek him doing very well.
the suspension is ... and included in the price ...
I was right to make that choice ... because, although it is less fashionable now among some (sometimes plébiscitent junk !!!...), I confess: I love this microphone!
and yet, I have others ...

leoturilli's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)

I used to the voices and an acoustic guitar in a room with a very very bad sound (echo huge floating). No I have not even tube preamp or compressor (d in I had one yesterday but I m ​​not used). Despite all the micro ensures great and after a small TRERE with VST plugins, it gives very good.


I have the past year and I would do the same choices again and again and again and again and .... .

- What is so special that you like best?

J loves the fact that with my 2000 + dsp Hoontech the mic and cubase, I come to do what I want.
- The least?

No I have not found a weak point.
PS This is all my opinion and I am neither engineer nor pro.

krishkou's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)

Everything has been said about the other reviews ... I give it a 9 because for the price I am more than satisfied.
I used to catch super song = result; clear sound of guitars = excellent grain and making room on a battery of cymbals = super definition, less visited the grave (which seems logical to me ...)


I have 3 years.
For home studio use relatively small budjet would recommend with eyes closed.
MODEL is the only of its kind that I tried to type in less high-end, I would not change.
Excellent quality price, I would do without a doubt the choice.
I use a pre-amp ART lamps to provide a little warmth to the sound and enhance the dynamics and I have a surprising result when ... He even took some time to master the whole.

Furt's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)

Large diaphragm condenser microphone enjoying two directional: cardioid and omni. -10db pad to cut down and a complete table. That's enough for normal use. Workmanship. Supplied without suspension and a simple cover: it's a bit light for protection.


If the microphone is no longer manufactured and was advantageously replaced by the NT2A, one can find second-hand and then it can be a good deal and make a lot of services.

The position of cardio so I do not like except for instruments in the harp as his lens.
Omni position seems to me, it much more natural and can be used with happiness on wind instruments (wood) or on pianos.
The sound is warm enough but lacks a bit of personality.
In conclusion, this is a very good microphone, to give the best of himself to be associated with a pre amp worthy of the name.

studiodhorlebaix's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)

I possde nt2 a couple for over five years and the advice I read here m'tonnent. This is a best seller and is dnigre (at the risk of making gnralits, I think it's a bit of a habit in France). I had a c prcedemment p48 414 that I sold because my silent too got aggressive. The 2 nt seems to me the perfect voices, perfect overhead, perfect on the percu some dlicates (tambourine, claps.). It's exactly the same as the nt1, not any diffrence except that the NT1 is exclusively cardioid. On the site (, all the voices (in the titles cost in "REFERENCE" are captured with the NT2.
Construction is also irrprochable. In addition, it comes with a manual. It is thanks this guide I know now when I can open and close the 48 V on a microphone. Moreover, its Resistors condensation is good (not the best but not the worst.).


-Yes, comparison AKGtube, Neumann tlm ... ... AudiotechnicaATM (DSOL There's 6 years old I do not remember the exact MODELS.)
It's great silent era. (China does not yet occurred)

SuperTrash_audiojunkie's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)

Everything is already said


I have since bought used in December 2003 200. Forcment, this price is a bargain, but even 400, I think it's a good deal ....( For those who hate the bump presence in the upper midrange / treble, I can you advise against Neumann TLM193).
I use it mostly for voice and the signal passes through a TLA 5051 (preamp / comp / eqs / gate lamps), and the result satisfies me.
But my opinion may not necessarily be good advice because everything depends on the use we make of them, the stamp of our instruments, the room etc etc ...

quash's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)

Already mentioned above


I use it for 2 years, coupled with the pramp dbx286a
for the voice is clear and powerful
Grat positioned 60cm to dry the handle rendering is excellent
for the price there is not a look any further over other links in the chain (while still in the semi-pro) it is enough to know his microphone and place it well
I get to have their pro and that's what counts is the sound made the brand and not sham

Scaby's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)

Use for voice and instrument.
Large diaphragm 1 inch (25mm) with no output transformer.
Omni directional and cardio. Cardio used in 99% of uses;)
Attnuateur-10dB and 125Hz high-pass -6 and-12dB.

Use attnuateur for percussion, and-6dB high pass for fminines voice, or else do nothing at all and correct the low frequencies on pramp, walking as well.

- The microphone really off-road ... sell the rest;)

- Main Caractritique:
Ultra-Flat in rponse on the spectrum, a lgre bump around 11k-12kHz, to add the presence, so do not do ncessite rglage conventional 3 dB for 11kHz voice.
It trs cash out the sound pressures and strong grabs both the fine nuances.

- For use with pramp worthy of the name (Mindprint for me, but also things Presonus INTERESTED trs).


Used daily for 1 year for instruments and voice, it is absolutely off-road and everyone praises her MRIT the studio, particulirement for guitars (nylon or steel).

Warning: many people do not know just ask microphones and rler APRS.

For voice: DCAL lgrement the axis (15), placed 50 cm to avoid the voice excsd "proximitquot effect, that the sound dnature .

For acoustic guitar: 1m place of the instrument, and especially not to seek the soundhole, but rather left hand. Everyone complimented the NT2 in use.

For percussion, hi-hats, etc ... : Used with mitigation, beautiful on cash, and if you place the microphone correctly, your exact is once again up to your expectancy at.

Post all apprentices ing-static sounds with thousands of francs: Stop criticizing your microphones: ALL IN THE INVESTMENT!

Report qualitprix great for the NT2. In fact, I do not see why dpenser more for a static studio. All Neuman TLM103 or U87 is especially worse for me because they are not as flat rponse frequency drives, so if one seeks a sound and really rel acoustics, avoid. (On the other hand, save some money for a good compressor that costs pramp gnral in more than a good static!)

That said, my advice is to rather Behringer B2 (as many test), which uses cheaper for the same cell of an inch Rode NT2 as a prsentation more "Taiwanese", but works just as well (around 1700 FF), or even his new little ERRF B1 (not test ... but hey ... FF 1000)

Last tip: To impress your musicians, do you buy Neuman labels and stick them on the Rode and Behringer ...
