The RØDE’s M1-S live dynamic microphone is designed to deliver the best performance with rock-solid build quality and high-power neodymium capsule. When used as a handheld microphone, the M1's ergonomically built all-metal body is engineered for optimal comfort. The microphone's internal design virtually eliminates handling noise, and it feels sturdy, substantial, and precisely balanced without being heavy. It's smooth character and defined clarity give outstanding performance as a live vocal microphone, with a warm response that is incredibly defined for a dynamic microphone. The spill and feedback are minimised via a precisely controlled cardioid polar pattern. The M1-S also has an XLR lock that may be used to secure the microphone to the cord for more security. A flush-mounted lock is included to prevents the microphone from being switched by accident.
