    Sonosax M2D2

    If going that route, it may be worth reading the SPDR thread first. There are some observations that may or may not be of interest depending on intended use:
  2. This is very old. I bought it from an amateur recordist, who in turn bought it used from a religious film production company in the early 80's (I have the receipt). I read somewhere that the 416 T-powered version was only produced a short period after the the 416 replaced the MKH 415 - I think the 415 were all T powered - although many were converted to p48 later. There was a lot of T recording equipment in circulation back in the 70's thus still a demand for T powered mics when the 416 was introduced. I don't know when it was converted to P48, but it was done before it came into possession of the previous owner - So my guess is late 70's. The mic actually included the parts required to reverse the mic to T power again. It still sounds sweet, and there has never been any rattle or noise that I have been aware of.
  3. Just for the fun of it. This is my acient 416T, if anyone ever wondered how that one looks inside. It is P48 modified at at the factory at some point. Serial no. 01812.

    Fake MKH 416?

    Well, it looks well used, perhaps even slightly abused - which may explain both that the paint is worn smooth and something rattles. The electronic board looks genuine, no faker would go through the trouble of copying the innards in such detail.
  5. Røde makes a $25 headset for a Ø4.5mm lav. That’s only 0.5mm more than the COS11. It may fit or a little tape may do the trick.
  6. Given what I read from your question, it doesn't sound to me like this is in preparation for a critical project. Many fine personal/YouTube/low budget projects has been done with what you have already. Just borrow that H4N - and find out what works for you and replace what doesn't along the way - when you know why it doesn't work.
  7. +1 I have been quite happy with the AA Ladda 2450 for more than a year now, and while I can't claim to have done any structured testing, I haven't noticed any variance.
  8. Agree. Only time can tell if the M1 is equally rugged. I imagine that was the reason why the RØDE marketing team decided to make this the only lifetime warranty mic in their lineup. Anyway - these are all relatively inexpensive microphones and it wouldn't break the bank to buy the candidates and decide from there - and sell off the leftovers at a modest loss.
  9. I like RØDE M1 better than SM58. The M1 is heavier, is a little cheaper (where I live) and sounds better to my ears (marginally) - and it has a lifetime warranty.
  10. I try to avoid buying products produced in contries aggressively suppressing the voice and rights of its people. Products may come at a fraction of the cost in $, but not in human cost. Regretfully I can't apply this in all areas, but when it comes to microphones there are plenty of alternatives.
  11. -Yes! Somebody really need to buy those NTG8s
  12. With all due respect for Watson Wu and all the others that gets freebies and pre-launch loaners. Have you ever heard them talk bad of whatever they received? They know very well that if they do, they will loose their privilege. With that said, I think highly of Røde and what they do for the customer segment they serve. I love the fact that they make their stuff in Australia and still strike a favorable balance between price and quality.
  13. And it works! Straight on, no pop filter: https://www.npr.org/2019/07/29/732097345/lizzo-tiny-desk-concert?jwsource=cl (Explicit Language)
  14. Paul, The good people at TapersSection.com are reporting the same problem and are documenting the results in a detailed format in this thread: http://taperssection.com/index.php?topic=191314.0 cheers Niels
  15. I imagine it will be easier to suggest alternatives if you share what you don’t like about it, and perhaps even what properties you hope to find in the replacement.
