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, 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 events, 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 1-dB sensitivity between the microphones. A premium foiled certificate is supplied to verify the authenticity of the pair. The M5 is finished with Rode's proprietary ceramic coating which offers a sleek matte black finish, and is supplied with WS5 windshields and RM5 stand mounts.
