Overview

Rode M5 Compact 1/2 Condenser Microphone - Matched Pair

Designed and made in Australia, the M5 is a compact 1/2" cardioid condenser microphone with low noise and a full frequency response. A result of many years’ experience building the award-winning NT5 microphone, RØDE has succeeded in making a high-quality ‘pencil’ style permanently polarized condenser that will impress even the most demanding of artists and engineers. Ideal for studio recording and live on stage, the M5 is equally at home on a range of acoustic instruments, choirs, or anywhere you would employ a small diaphragm condenser microphone, either individually or as a stereo array. This matched pair has been carefully selected to ensure a variation of no more than 1dB sensitivity between the microphones. A premium foiled certificate is supplied to verify the authenticity of the pair. The M5 is finished with RØDE’s proprietary ceramic coating which offers a sleek matt black finish, and is supplied with WS5 windshields and RM5 stand mounts.

  • So far, so good, and a fair price
    Verified BuyerReviewed by ZackAttack - August 30, 2020

    Having purchased the Rode NT-1A for recording, I wasn't very happy about the way it was picking up background noise in my room while trying to track acoustic guitar. I figured I'd give these a shot, plus it would give me the opportunity to have more choices during mixing, especially after purchasing the separate Rode stereo array spacing bar. Being able to track the guitar at two different locations along the fretboard/body will allow for some unique recordings without double the work or separate takes. Although I haven't used them a whole lot as my tracking plans for acoustic guitar have been shelved, I did test them for a couple of nights. Immediately I was happy that I was getting a more focused recording without all the "airy" high-end of my NT-1A, and even my old MXL pencil condensers. The mics are very small and easy to store, although it would be nice to have individual cardboard boxes for each mic outside of the initial packaging.

  • Great Overhead Mics

    Purchased these mics to use as overheads on a drum set. These exceeded my expectations. No terrible highs, everything is smooth.
