NT1000 Reviews

The RØDE NT1000 and NTK break the mold, with world-class specs and a smoothness that stands alongside microphones three times the price. On top of that, they're stunningly good-looking, with an over-the-top sturdiness that would serve as well in hand-to-hand combat as in the studio.

Bruce Richardson

It really sings on vocals. I have used it for myself and a few other vocalists and with almost no eq'ing it sounds great! It is crystal clear and very detailed.

Joe Grazulis

If you're looking for a classy performer that's a step up from the week's 'best buys', then this could well be the one to go for.

Sound on Sound

This is the best non-tube microphone I've ever used on vocals - hands down. Germany is in trouble now

Tony S.

Rap vocals recorded using NT1000 cut through the mix like a knife. It rules. Buy it or die.

Nie Wyjdzie Studio

We make use of the NT1000 for vocals in our studio with NO EQ. This Microphone stands out in any Mix, with clarity and perfect response every time. Not only does it sound great but it looks great, its a real showoff. RØDE can be very proud of their excellent craftmanship!

Gecko FM

I have two AKG C1000's and they do an admirable job as over-heads. I "was" happy with them. Boy am I glad I've made the switch these RØDE microphones.

My drums sound like they have been recorded in Hollywood, really. The NT1000s captures my kit very accurately and the drums are breathing ;] If you are looking for great over-head mics look no further.


This was my personal vocal mic for years. I even brought it to other studios, and in A/B comparisons, we'd also choose the NT1000 as sounding best (on MY voice that is).
