Dreaming Late's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Very good stereo microphone jacks"

See other descriptions.


I use it for 1 year and a half, (very effective) essentially directional mode for recording acoustic guitar or percussion. The sound is clear, good dynamics, and I get a very high quality in my mix without having to retouch frequencies.

I really do not know what value the cardioid heads, however, some tests I made gave a good result (choirs, but not for microphones head).

I also have a Rhode NT1, too sensitive for my taste, and most importantly, a U87 (awesome). But NT55 which at top for stereo sound taken on major trends.

In short, for me, these are microphones very good price / quality ratio, I do not regret for having purchased.

Yann Kovic's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" An excellent mic tight budget"

This type of condenser microphone is a pressure gradient.

He has two caps:

A cardioid and omnidirectional.

It also includes:

A gain selector 0, -10,-20dB.
A high pass filter selector "flat", 75Hz, 150 Hz

It is intended for taking string instruments like acoustic guitar, but can have other uses. I experiment for the time taken before an amp.
on the other hand it is not good for her voice too much pop!


I use it since May 2009.
I love its flat frequency response and sensitivity.
Rode warranty is 10 years!

Curiously, it is sometimes too sensitive in the high register, it is therefore necessary before taking a well isolated.

Value for money: unbeatable consumer hardware.

I would do this choice with your eyes closed ... Go for it!
