The S1 is a professional quality microphone, specifically designed for live vocal performance. The S1 employs a true condenser transducer for optimal sound reproduction. The frequency response is tailored to ensure clear vocals while reducing handling noise. The unidirectional (super cardioid) pick up pattern limits background noise and reduces the susceptibility to feedback.
Rode 10 year warranty - You must register your product with Rode to take advantage of the warranty.
The five piece mesh head provides filtering of breath, wind, and plosive noise whilst not interfering with the S1¡¯s sensitivity or frequency response. The hardened mesh head also protects the precision condenser transducer from air borne contaminants and possible impact during performance and transit. The ergonomic design of the S1 also makes it extremely comfortable to hold and control during performance. The S1 requires P48V phantom supply and will work with most professional mixing consoles that incorporate this standard. The high level output of the S1 is electronically balanced to reduce loss over long cable runs with the additional benefit of high level rejection of electromagnetic interference.

The S1 is designed to operate from phantom power to the P48 standard. It may be supplied from either an external stand alone phantom supply or from a console with internal supply. The S1 will operate between 44V and 52V applied with positive polarity to pin 2 and pin 3 of the output XLR connector.
The S1 will operate satisfactorily into a load impedance as low as 1kOhm. If a load below this is used, the output signal level will be reduced. The S1 output is balanced between pin 2 (hot) and pin 3 (cold). Pin 1 is ground.
