The RØDE S1 is designed specifically for ‘no compromise’ live vocal performance, but has also found a place in the studio where the performer wants to hold the recording mic. The S1 utilizes a true condenser transducer for studio quality sound reproduction. The S1’s sophisticated high pass filter dramatically reduces undesirable low-frequency background and handling noise. The super cardioid pick-up pattern further limits background noise and virtually eliminates feedback.

The multi-stage mesh head filters breath, wind, and plosive noise without affecting sensitivity or frequency response. The hardened mesh head also protects the precision transducer from the rigors of live performance. The rugged ergonomic design of the S1 makes it extremely comfortable to hold and control during use. * The S1 requires P48 V phantom supply. The high level output of the S1 is electronically balanced to reduce loss over long cable runs.

Key Features:

  • Studio recording quality.
  • Rugged all metal construction.
  • Attractive satin-nickel finish.

Product Specifications


Operation power 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.
Operation output impedance The S1 will operate satisfactorily into a load impedance as low as 1kΩ. 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.
