    The Rode M5 is a compact ½” cardioid condenser microphone with low noise and a full frequency response. Rode 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 mic clip.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great value The Rode M5 pencil condenser microphones are brilliant value, My pair have very low self noise and handle being used for drums very well. They're also proving to be quite useful as a cheaper indoor overhead boom mic for dialog, though moving rapidly between voice talents can introduce noise from the boom.. They're Quite a natural sound that picks up on very small details. They are quite sensitive to plosive sounds but the foam filters do wel for basic usel.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Handy additions to my collection The Rode M5 small diaphragm matched pair are a handy mic to have in the collection. I have used them for round table discussions, overhead mics to capture grand piano in tight environments and general instrument microphones
