rogs said:Yes - but as the test conditions are a direct comparison, using identical channel inputs, it seems a reasonable test set up?
I'm guessing they set it up to see how they compared, and then decided whether the results were good enough to publish?
If they hadn't been good enough - they simply wouldn't have posted the video!

I even can't check if it is a microphone coming out of the standard production, or a 'special one' prepared for this test. This gives me the same feeling as when I look at a perfectly flat frequency response, given by a microphone manufacturer. But when I measure the same microphone, it is suddenly less 'flat' than the manufacturer suggested... (Maybe I am just a bit too suspicious, but still...)
ubxf said:One thing i noticed after listening to quite a few capsules is that beyond the frequency response there is also an impression of depth that makes a difference. What causes that ? is that due to dynamics, speed of response of the capsule.
Most likely, this is determined by the phase linearity of the capsule and microphone amplifier, as well as the equipment to which it is connected.ubxf said:One thing i noticed after listening to quite a few capsules is that beyond the frequency response there is also an impression of depth that makes a difference.

I think that is a fair assessment of some of the earlier models ... the 1st NT1 and the NT1a models, for example?RuudNL said:I second that. I have heard many Røde microphones, but never heard one that really impressed me.
Most of them have that shrill, overhyped top-end.

I am not saying that RODE microphones are the best of the best.granger.frederic said:If you believe a Rode nt1 can compete with one of these... no, i just can't believe it...

It's just strange for me to hear such a hate addressed to them.
Moreover, a hate from people interested in this hate.
Look familiar to anyone?

However, I used a K87 style capsule, a polarization voltage about 60V and a BM-700 body.
