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.

M5 REVIEWS

Given their attractive price, the level of performance and that enticingly long warranty, there’s little not to like about the M5s.

SOUND ON SOUND
The M5s are a perfectly sound matched stereo pair of microphones that would make a decent addition to anyone’s audio armoury.
If you are running to compare these specs to RØDE’s well known NT5 pencil condenser, the nutshell version is that the M5 has a higher noise floor and is a tad less sensitive… but it’s also half the price of the NT5, and in my tests neither of these slightly lower specs was an issue.
