Features wise this mic is pretty bare-bones. There is no 20 dB pad, and no switchable polar patterns. The mic comes with a leather pouch instead of the metal boxes you might be used to seeing RODE's packaged in. It comes with a nice, solid shock mount.

$199

OVERALL OPINION

The sound quality of RODE products is always fantastic, and this low-end model is no exception. It uses the same gold-plated diaphragm of the higher end RODE models, it just doesn't have a 20 dB pad or switchable polar patterns, hence the drop in price. It is just as clear as other RODE mics I have used, as clear as Shure KSMs or AKGs. When I tested it with RODE NT2's and KSM 44's, it was very similar in overall sound. If you are strictly recording vocals or something else that doesn't require a pad or switchable patterns, go for the NT1-A. For $199 it is a serious bargain.

Well, its a microphone, so basically you just plug it in, the rest is up to your audio interface. The shock mount is easy to reassemble, the mic is easy to install in the shock-mount, so I guess that counts for something.

This mic is very well built. It's light for a condensor, so its quite nice for your mic stand. It seems very sturdy and durable. The grill could have had a beam separating it in the middle, the way many higher end models do, but its still very solid.

I love this mic. It does what I want it to do, with extremely low noise, and it doesn't take much to warm the sound up. For the price, this is the best out there.
