Studio quality in a live vocal mic.

The R˜DE S1 Pro Vocal Condenser Mic is a professional-quality microphone, specifically designed for live vocal performance.
It 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) pickup pattern limits background noise and reduces the susceptibility to feedback. The 5-piece mesh head provides filtering of breath, wind, and plosive noises while not interfering with the R˜DE S1's sensitivity or frequency response. The hardened mesh head also protects the precision condenser transducer from airborne 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 mic 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.

S1 Pro Vocal Condenser Microphone Specifications:

  • Operation Power: 48V
    Output Impedance: 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
    Acoustic principle: Externally polarized condenser, pressure
    gradient transducer
    Directional pattern: Supercardioid
    Frequency range: 20Hz-20kHz
    Polar pattern
    Output impedance: 50 ohms
    Signal/Noise ratio DIN/IEC 651: 75dB (1kHz rel 1 Pa; per IEC651, IEC268-15)
    Equivalent noise: 18dBA SPL (per IEC651, IEC268-15)
    Maximum SPL: 151dB (@ 0.7% THD into 1kOhm)
    Sensitivity at 1 kHz into 1 kOhm: -46.5dB re 1 Volt/Pascal, (4.7mV @ 94dB SPL), +/- 2dB into 1kOhm
    Maximum output voltage: +12.5dBu (@ 0.7% THD into 1kÎ)
    Dynamic range of the mic. amplifier DIN/IEC 651: 132dB (per IEC651, IEC268-15)
    Power (Supply voltage): Phantom supply voltage - 44V to 52V. Current consumption - 4.4 mA
    Polarity: A positive acoustic pressure applied to the diaphragm results in a positive voltage excursion at pin 2 with respect to pin 3 at the output XLR connector
    Connector: XLR 3F
    Weight approx.: 10.58 oz
