Introducing the NT1 Signature Series Studio Condenser Microphone
Introducing the NT1 Signature Series, the latest edition of our iconic original studio condenser microphone. With over 6 million units sold in its 30-year history, the NT1 is the world’s most popular studio microphone, beloved by everyone from bedroom musicians and studio professionals to podcasters, streamers, voice over artists and content creators.
The NT1 Signature Series arrives hot on the heels of the NT1 5th Generation, which fused the classic sound signature of the NT1 with cutting-edge technology, such as its world-first Dual Connect output for both XLR and USB connectivity, a 32-bit float digital output, and on-board DSP. With the 5th Generation, the analog circuitry of the NT1 was also upgraded to deliver lower noise, higher SPL handling capabilities, an extremely smooth frequency response and a tightly controlled pickup pattern.
Now the NT1 Signature Series joins the NT1 5th Generation in our current NT1 range, offering these same high-performance specs and the classic NT1 sound signature, with the original XLR-only design of previous generations.
Offering exceptional sound quality, best-in-class specifications, legendary RØDE build quality and incredible affordability, the NT1 Signature Series affirms the NT1 as the industry-standard studio condenser microphone.
For the first time ever, the NT1 Signature Series also offers the NT1 in a range of limited-edition colours including red, pink, purple, blue and green, allowing you to express your signature style in both sound and colour.

“When we designed the NT1 5th Generation, not only did we add revolutionary digital technology, but we also redesigned the analog circuitry to deliver improved performance, while retaining the classic NT1 sound that everyone loves,” said RØDE CEO Damien Wilson. “With the NT1 Signature Series, we wanted to offer creators this new-and-improved NT1 with the original pure-analog design of previous generations – plus the option to get one in your favourite colour to match your own unique aesthetic!”
“The NT1 has been one of the best-selling mics in the world for over 30 years, and for good reason. Whether it’s your first microphone or your go-to studio workhorse, it offers the sound quality, specs and build quality that you would expect from a microphone several times its price. It’s a modern classic that everybody needs in their mic collection.”
The World’s Most Popular Studio Microphone
First released in 1991, the NT1 was our very first microphone. Conceived in a pivotal era for home musicians where new technologies were making it easier than ever to capture studio-quality recordings in a bedroom, the NT1 quickly became the industry-standard studio mic for a new generation of DIY creators.
Since then, the NT1 has gone through multiple transformations, including the legendary NT1-A, the best-selling fourth generation black NT1, and most recently, the ground-breaking NT1 5th Generation. The NT1 Signature Series carries on the legacy of this iconic microphone, delivering the same quality and affordability that creators have come to expect from an NT1, with improved performance and a fresh aesthetic. Say hello to the new industry-standard studio mic.
Classic Studio Sound for Today’s Creators
The NT1 Signature Series offers the same warm, silky character that has made the NT1 the go-to microphone for everyone from musicians to voice over artists, podcasters, streamers, and other content creators.
It features our stunning HF6 capsule, which is precision engineered to sub-micron tolerances to ensure the utmost consistency in tonality and frequency response, and is internally shock-mounted for minimising vibrations. Delivering rich, warm bass, a detailed midrange and sparkling top end, it is an exceptional vocal mic that will make any voice shine. It also performs brilliantly in a wide range of studio applications, from recording acoustic guitar, percussion and other acoustic instruments, to drums, electric guitar and piano.
Its tight cardioid polar pattern offers excellent rejection of background noise and its smooth frequency response and high sensitivity offer incredible balance and clarity. Enhanced circuitry delivers high SPL handling capabilities for maximum flexibility in the studio and an astonishingly low self-noise of just 4dBA, making it the world’s quietest studio condenser microphone alongside the NT1 5th Generation.
Signature Sound and Signature Style
In addition to black, the NT1 Signature Series comes in a range of vibrant colours, including red, green, purple, pink and blue. This is the first time the NT1 has been available in colours other than the classic black or silver, allowing creators to pick the perfect mic to match their signature style. This coloured range will be available in limited quantities exclusively from RØDE.
The NT1 Signature Series is made from premium components in RØDE’s precision manufacturing facilities in Sydney, Australia, and is backed by our industry-leading 10-year warranty. Each microphone also comes with a studio-grade shock mount, pop filter and a premium XLR cable.
