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

This microphone is ideal for singing, but also lends itself very well to the recovery of overhead guitar amps or drums.
This is the condenser, cardioid. Indeed, it does not blow at all. The suspension is provided, average quality but it does its job.


I have one for 2-3 years, it makes me proud to services regularly. Sometimes I prefer it to a Neumann U87i (which lends me from time to time) for some voice!
It is well to nab the warm voice and clear up a little without equal. Extra: easy placement in a mix.
It captures less wide than the Neumann cardio benefit: less than repisse and parasites in the decision!
It is somewhat less well defined in a U87 mediums.
Still, a sense of respect for the sources and relative neutrality.
The price / quality ratio is excellent: I was able to accurately compare the NT1A and U87 in a position of taking voice: the little doing very well! The differences are subtle: a sound a bit harder for Rode, treble a little less silky ... but ten times cheaper ... This is a good microphone to report quality / price ratio, perfect to start recording in the condenser microphone.

U-FLYstudio's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)

This basic condenser microphone with cardioid, has no filter or attenuator, it offers an extremely simple output circuit which reduces the inherent noise limits the achievable, indeed it is here one of the best in the world as it generates only 5 dBA self noise! he cash 137 dB, which allows a certain flexibility, even if the bass drums and other hardcore singer taking the bass amp on the foot may cause him some small cracks not very pleasant!


It seems to me fairly homogeneous, with undeniable quality rendition, good dynamic and a bit of defaults is if not its a "small" compared to stars of the genre (Neumann U87, U47 Fet, AKG C414 B-LXII etc.. ..).
The suspension comes with two elastic parts! and a bag of basic
still provide a correction in the high end, because this is too sharp and not so fine and detailed .... hum hum ............
So it all ended up being poor and often blur in the low end ..... and a little nag at the top .....
AH right now it is a bit demotivating !!!!!!!!
but remember the price to 199 euros is well!

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

I do not put 10 because it is always better!


For a little over 6 months.

Its super clean, extremely quiet himself, it is also the best advertisement!
Very neutral as it should be easy to rework ordinary (voice).

Mics as I know little studio, I do know more micro singing live. I'm a fan of Shure beta 87! I do not like the sound sehneiser too hifi, too hidden, while Shure, it shines ...

Unbeatable value for money!
Nice finish and a brand known in the art ...

This choice I would do without hesitation!

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



I use this microphone recently and as a quality price ratio is not better!
I love the rendering, sound and very well especially at the restitution of medium quality is really warm.
It is clear that with a bigger budget it is better to buy lev Nt Nt 1000 or 2000 but I saw my amateur use plutt there is really great.
I use it mostly for voice, or that it has no sound.
If I had to make that choice again it would be no problem to begin with because it is a versatile micro trs, considering the price ngocier 329! we must not miss it.
