Das RØDE S1 Kondensatormikrofon für den Live-Einsatz bietet Künstlern und Toningenieuren eine rundum überzeugende Studioqualität auf der Bühne – mit allen Eigenschaften, die man von einem Handmikrofon erwartet. Das S1 enthält eine 3/4”-Kondensatorkapsel mit Supernierencharakteristik, die Rückkopplung auf der Bühne keine Chance lässt. Die Kombination einer ausgeklügelten internen Aufhängung mit einem ebenfalls internen Hochpassfilter sorgt für einen weitgehend störungsfreien Betrieb. Mehrere Lagen eines akustisch optimierten Stahlgrills fungieren als Filter für Atemgeräusche, Wind und Explosivlaute, ohne dabei die Empfindlichkeit und den Übertragungsbereich zu beeinträchtigen. Mit seinen profiwürdigen Spezifikationen und der detaillierten Klangabbildung eignet sich das S1 auch als Handmikrofon im Studio – schließlich gibt es Sänger, die lieber so aufnehmen. Das RØDE S1 ist wahlweise in satinierter Nickel- oder mattschwarzer Ausführung (S1-B) lieferbar. Es wird in Australien hergestellt und erlaubt die kostenlose Erweiterung der RØDE-Garantie auf 10 Jahre.

...offers a real step-up in quality when compared to its dynamic counterparts... To sum up, I would say that if you want studio-mic sound quality on stage, the RØDE S1 is one of the better options available.
The mic is so sturdy I reckon you could virtually hammer in nails with it. This mic feels almost indestructible.
All in all, there is no doubt that the folks at RØDE have come up with a great mic in the S1 – a sturdy addition to the ‘toolbox of the road’, and a worthy team member of any studio mic collection as well.
All in all, the RØDE S1 is an excellent live sound vocal mic; it sounded nice and warm with just enough top-end to make it cut it in the mix. The microphone is durable as well. It was dropped, but the windscreen was okay -- no dents or damage to the microphone.
The sound is excellent! The vocals really project in the mix. Presence is great, tone is great. The vocals are articulate, no muddiness and there seems to be no coloration of the sound. Summed up, this is an EXCELLENT live microphone! I would buy it again. Great job RØDE!
I purchased this mic 4 years ago after being told by a pro sound vet that my dynamic mic was ripping me off sonically. Once I received the mic we did the "pepsi challenge" with my old mic to compare. The difference was night & day. Many folks over the years have said that condensers are fragile and tempremental; this one is not. It has stood up to hard use without ever faltering. The only issue I have ever had is that it requires 48v phantom, period. Anything less than 48v will not light it up. Overall the price may seem a bit prohibitive, but when you consider that the sound quality you get from this mic alone is comparable to what you could only get by having an expensive pre-amp. This mic's frequency range is 20-20k ensures that you get all of those frequencies that most mics will not pick up. The guarantee is icing on the cake. If you are on the fence, jump off and buy it, you won't be disappointed.
Bought this mic after being reasonably pleased with the Beta 87a I had been using. Wow! What a difference. Everything from a whisper to a scream had more warmth without being muddy, clarity without being brittle and, it just felt like I could connect.
I first heard the RØDE name from a Karaoke buddy who had whispered into my ears about a rising star line of mics - RØDE. That was a few years back.
Then I joined a vocal group. Rather, it's a church choir. At some point I convinced them that RØDE mics are great performers, so we bought a RØDE S1 along with an NT4 pair. Whenever a soloist, especially a male vocalist sang on it, the sound produced was sweet, feedback and plosives free. I know, because I had owned and been using Shure Beta 87, AKG C535EB condenser mics, among other lesser mics. There's certain distinctive sweetness yet being faithful to the voice of the S1 that I missed when using the other mics.
So, I purchase a RØDE NTK for my home use. Its excellent tube stage lets me hear and enjoy all nuances of vocals when played through Mackie 1620 Onyx mixer. The mike, however great it sounds, is to be used strictly in-house only.
Today an S1 arrived from an order placed 2 weeks ago. I instantly hooked it up to the same system, let it cook for a few minutes, and start singing into it. Sure, side by side compared with the NTK, it lacks the ultimate bass and sensitivity of the latter, but I adjusted to the more close-up proximity and voila, a very rich RØDE-family sound can be achieved with the 1/2 priced S1.
Having an S1 and NTK side by side is a very interesting and educational experience that doesn't seem to stop giving me smiles and sheer pleasure.
Thank you RØDE, for creating truly fabulous pro-audio products at down-to-earth prices.
