With rock-solid build quality and a high-power neodymium capsule, the RØDE M1 live dynamic microphone is designed to provide the very best performance, night after night. Its durability is backed-up by a lifetime warranty, following registration of purchase.
The M1's ergonomically designed all-metal body is engineered for maximum comfort when used as a handheld microphone. It feels robust, solid and perfectly balanced without being heavy, and handling noise is almost completely eliminated by the microphone's internal design.
Featuring a warm response that is incredibly defined for a dynamic microphone, the M1's smooth character and defined clarity offer incredible performance as a live vocal microphone. A tightly controlled cardioid polar pattern minimises spill and feedback.
Renowned as one of the industry's best live vocal microphones, the M1 is an equally strong performer on guitar amplifiers as well as kick drum, snare drum, toms and percussion.
The mic is built like the proverbial brick outhouse and with full heavy metal jacket construction...a lifetime warranty with the M1 must be seen as a major plus; I certainly can't think of another manufacturer that offers a similar level of backup... I really like the RØDE M1... it took my weedy voice and made it 100% Rock n' Roll!!!
The tonal characteristics of the RØDE M1 should give good results with the majority of both male and female vocalists... If you like the idea of studio-quality live vocals then it's a great little mic... It's built to last and has a more open-sounding high end than most dynamic mics.
I've been trying the M1 myself, and are surely convinced that there is absolutely no question about the quality and differences between the M1 and for example the SM58/Beta58. Just like the RØDE M2, the M1 has a very robust and powerful output, not to mention the sound of the thing. It has much more detail, more high tones, and more power in the low-end region of my voice than an SM58 or Beta58. I would absolutely recommend everyone trying an M1.(Customer Review)
Naturally as soon as I got mine home I put it through its paces predominantly on the drum kit A/Bing it with a 57 and a drum mic pack tom clip mic. The M1 killed in all regards. Both my drummer and I were unanimous that it had such a fuller punchier sound then the 57 on snare and on toms it really shone. Best mic I have heard on toms so far. The smooth character of the mic and the subtle low end boost it seems to have just gave the toms so much body but did not detract at all from the nice snap of the skin. Anyway just wanted to give some feedback and say that I love this mic, I bought it in the hopes it would serve as a great all rounder and it certainly does(Customer Review)
Last friday I've had my first gig singing on the RØDE M1! It was a blaaast!!! Stunning power, a "kick in the ass" punch, excellent feedback rejection, the mic did an amazing job! Very proud to have it! Respect(Customer Review)

No, whilst these mics do not require phantom power, microphones are built to cope with being fed phantom power and this will not damage the equipment. It is however advised that when possible, to turn off phantom power when not in use.
To connect the XLR microphone output to a TRS stereo input (3.5mm socket) you will need to buy or make a XLR to stereo TRS cable, to make the cable please follow the instructions in the picture below. This cable will allow connection between the microphone and a camcorder or DSLR camera.
This cable will allow you to connect your microphone output to a stereo TRS input and receive the audio signal on both the input channels.
Please Note: Should the microphone require phantom power to operate, this will not be available from a TRS socket.
