Rode M5 Compact 1/2″ Condenser Microphone -Matched Pair

The M5 Microphones from Rode are a matched pair of condenser microphones that have a variation of no more than 1 dB of sensitivity between them. The M5 itself is a pencil-style microphone that features a 1/2″ diameter gold-plated membrane capsule with a cardioid polar pattern. The microphones have transformerless circuitry for low noise operation and can be used in typical live and studio applications for small diaphragm condenser microphones, including on acoustic instruments, choirs, as drum overheads, and more.

The M5s are finished with Rode’s proprietary ceramic coating and each includes a WS5 windshield and RM5 microphone clip. The pair was designed and built in Australia and has a limited 1-year warranty that extends to 10-years with online registration.

Designed and made in Australia, the M5 is a compact ½” 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.
