But it's just that when you once use Neumanns, even cheaper ones, you have sold your soul to high-end. You just can't compare them to NT1a, they're worlds apart..
I'm with you 100%. I wasn't trying to compare Neumann mics to Rode mics. Rather compare the thought process of "to much high end". I always hear people saying that the TLM103 is "very bright", or "too bright", or "needs EQ to tame the highs". On mics like the TLM103, I pick them because I like their high end and often a little highend goes a long way. Now, at the same time people say the NT1 has too much high end. And I guess the difference I was trying to clarify with the comparison was, one has nice highs and one has crappy highs. Often people will say, I'm looking for more highs, so maybe the Rode is a good choice for me. So, my end all point was, the Rode doesn't have flattering highs like some mics do.
Sorry to I wasn't more clear.
