5.0 out of 5 stars Buttery Goodness
By antiparticleman on May 6, 2018
I am beyond pleased with the quality of this piece of functional art. It is as much a pleasure to handle and look at as it is to use. Tracking work becomes instantly more productive just by adding this as that critical step 1. Everything sounds better, which makes everyone feel better, which makes all the performances better, so you end up getting SO MUCH DONE! The mic has a rich openness that I can only describe as beautiful. Accurately capturing even the most gentle transients and spectral shifts, The K2 manages to deliver a tonally balanced "silky warmness" I've only ever heard from a Neumann U87, but a buttery goodness that is a character all it's own.

This mic will STAY in my first try lineup.

2.0 out of 5 stars Used Vocal Mic at $296.09 from Amazon Warehouse
By D. J. GIAMMARINO on June 9, 2019
9/27/2019 Update: I ended up picking up a new one and Rode told me that they have a notice on their website about buying their Microphone here and to be careful.

Bought from Amazon at the low price of $296.09 and the only thing missing was the original box. Everything else was there, but I watched a YouTube unboxing video, the K2 I received was not in any protective film, and there everything was open.

I received the mic 20 days ago and I'm noticing a problem with the mic when I set it to Figure of 8 Mode, seems the other side (the rear) distorts, perhaps this is why the price was so cheap.

Another thing I noticed, I have great equipment, but this mic is limited to recording at -15 DB or below, anything else and it sounds too distorted, which is strange because my MXL Mics never did that. I could barely hear my voice in my headphones and the mic was distorted at not a loud volume of speaking.

I'm buying another tube amp to test this out, hoping it's my tube amp and not the mic, but I've used the mic only about six times, vocals only in Cardioid mode, this was the first time I switched the polar pattern.

I'll delete this review if it turns out that Amazon will refund my money since I've only used it 20 days. I received the mic on June 1st, it's the 20th.
