Great for vocalsI have 2 of these that I use in my recording studio for a variety of things. Great for vocals, snare drum and amplifier mic'ing. Recently used them for a podcast recording. Very rich in the low to high mids. I especially like them for recording mid-side "stereo" acoustic guitar. Because this is an end address microphone, I point it right at the 12th fret, with a 2nd figure-of-eight condenser just above it to catch the left and right. Then, once in the DAW, I duplicate the condenser track, pan the condenser tracks hard R & L and flip the polarity on one of the tracks. The Rode track stays right down the middle. This mic feels like a piece of lead in your hand - very heavy duty.5You want this mic!I'll admit it... I'm a microphone geek. I'm also a singer, and this my new favorite stage mic. While it's totally acceptable for anyone using the standard SM58, it's better in subtle ways. On stage, I would not choose another right now, 'cept maybe the EV767A (which I also own) or the much pricier Telefunken M-80 (which I do not, but donations are well received). Another reason not to suffer an SM58 again.While I have no idea about the long term indestructibility of the M1 versus the pretty-well-established-as-indestructable SM58, I suspect I could drive my car (2003 Prius) over this without hurting it in the least.5Better then a Beta 58a!I've owned several Shure Beta 58a's for more then 12 years and never thought I would jump ship. I figured what the heck it's cheaper and has decent reviews I'll give it a try and if I don't like it I'll sell it to my bass player. Well my bass player isn't getting it! This mic is better sounding and appears to be as good if not better built. What I like most about it is the absence of the super high frequency somewhere around 14-16khz that the Beta 58a seems to produces. This has was a nice warm full spectrum tone but not muffled like a SM58. I've had no issues with feedback and its sits in a live heavy rock band mix perfectly. Built like a tank. Zero buyers remorse. I highly recommend it!!!5Loud, Clear, no Feedback... I use for playing liveI needed a mic with more volume and punch. I play acoustic guitar and sing with a small PA system, typically only using those two channels. I read that a condenser mic with phantom power might provide more volume and less feedback. The problem I was having with a regular dynamic mic was that It wasn't providing enough volume over the acoustic / electric unless I was always I was singing super close to the mic (literally touching it).. This Rode M1 mic allows me to back off the mic and is super loud and clear! with ZERO feedback... Great purchase! Glad I did it!5Amazing option for Podcasting, Discord, and anything else.I've had a Rode Boom Arm for a couple years and have tried so many other mics for online communication, streaming, podcasting, discord, and gaming based on popular consensus. Youtube randomly had a review of this mic under suggested and even though it wasn't being sold as my use case the information provided had my spidey senses tingling. If the mic is to be used for vocals on stage around loud instruments in a loud environment then maybe it'll work in my environment which seems to be louder than most.Spoiler Alert: It did. It's better than the AT2035 and RE320 for my environment. I love how crisp my voice sounds on it and how easily it rejects background noise. I'm a low/moderate speaker so if it works for me this would be ideal for loud speakers who could leave the DB way down resulting in much less background nosie being picked up. After reviewing many podcasts and streams mics are in most of the big peoples faces... right where this mic works the best.5Well-made MicrophoneI use this mic at my desk to narrate videos. Before it, I used a Blue Yeti Pro. The Rode M2 is better than the Yeti by far, and it's almost on-par with the Shure SM7B that I use to record audio books and other audio-only recordings. It does very well with mid-range vocals. So, a man's voice will have more richness at a distance. It also did a good job rejecting ambient noise from the room and outside.There's a couple of knocks, though. I found plosives to pick up more than I thought they would. I try to speak into it at an off angle, but it picked up the Ps. The Bs were fine. I do use a windscreen, so I may switch to a pop filter. Also, the On/Off switch is really difficult to flip. That's one tight lock on it and maybe tighter than it needs to be.One last thing, you don't need a Cloudlifter. Just turn the gain to about 60%-70% on your audio interface (I use a Focusrite Scarlett) and turn on phantom power.I think it's worth the cash.4A flat response curve does not a great vocal mic make.I bought this mic because of the specs. I mistakenly thought that a perfectly flat response curve is something that couldn't possibly be anything but a great idea. I was wrong. To me, at least, it sounds flat, muddy and lifeless. I guess in retrospect, that makes sense, doesn't it? Flat response = flat response on the part of the listener. I really don't care what the mic costs (within reason), so long as it delivers my voice in a clear, crisp and authentic manner, as I sing mostly close-proximity vocals. As Bose has so profitably discovered, sometimes you have to fool Mother Nature to sound "natural". Also, mics behave differently at close proximity, which is a whole other arena of discussion.The Germans have been in this game a long time, and without mentioning names, the $500 mic I subsequently bought for my live performances has a real "sparkle" and clarity to the sound. People who don't know anything about anything will come up after the show and remark on the clarity of the vocals. That's because they figured out that how a mic sounds may not be obvious from what the curves look like on paper. I'm an electrical engineer with 30+ experience designing products and I certainly understand the mental pitfalls of "what should work" (theory) vs. "what does work" (practice). The real "sweet spot" in audio engineering is to marry the two. Ask Paul Klipsch, whom I had the pleasure of meeting. He called what he did "Heresy". Because it worked.It's still a decent microphone; I lend it to friends who tend to sing louder than I do and it sounds fine. It also seems to work well recording acoustic guitars. But for the no-compromise approach I take with my own vocals, it didn't click.Oh, and Rode - yes, the mic clip is really funky - c'mon guys! Listen to your feedback! (Sorry - bad pun)3With this great Mike I have the option of using Phantom power ...With this great Mike I have the option of using Phantom power of 48 Volts, or with a 9v battery(not included) will work just fine without phantom power.5Very good condenser microphone for the price.Nice gain. No complain. Perfect for a auditorium professional artist. We have one Shure beta 87a. It's similar to that with same performance. Not as heavyas Shure. Let's see how long it lasts.5Professional results for a budget price.I replaced a small diaphragm MXL mic (everybody's first condenser mic) with the M5 and can't believe the difference in the quality of my recordings. Close micing an acoustic guitar it captures every subtle tone and accentuates the differences in the attack with a pick or fingerstyle. I usually hang a blanket over a couple chair backs, position this mic in front and play into it. It gives me results that are very warm and true to the sound of my guitar. I'm thinking about using this as an overhead drum mic for my band, too.5
