The Rode M5-MP stereo set consists of two M5 small-diaphragm condenser microphones, which have been carefully selected to achieve a difference in sensitivity of less than 1 dB. In this way, the microphones have an almost identical response and ensure an optimum stereo recording. The microphones have a cardioid polar pattern and are thus not only suitable for recording different instruments but also for recording both interviews and ambient sounds for TV and film productions. The scope of delivery includes two RM5 microphone clips as well as two WS5 windshields.
Robust and feedback-resistant
The Rode M5 (made in Australia) is a compact condenser microphone with a 1/2" gold-plated diaphragm, and it uses a low-noise transformerless circuit and delivers a wide frequency response. It can be powered either with 24 V or 48 V phantom power, which guarantees compatibility with different systems. In addition, the microphone’s cardioid polar pattern suppresses sounds coming from the rear and ensures a high level of protection against feedback. A sturdy metal casing with a special coating and a matt black finish completes the picture.
A high-quality, budget-friendly solution
With the Rode M5 MP, you get a pair of condenser microphones that can be used in front of many different sound sources both live and in the studio. The M5 is comparatively low in price but solidly constructed, and it will impress you with its high signal quality, which can definitely compete with microphones from higher price categories. It is therefore an affordable solution for beginners looking to equip themselves with a stereo set that will deliver high-quality sound. However, even demanding users will find the Rode M5 MP a worthy addition to their arsenal of microphones – and one that comes at an unbeatable price.
Founded in Sydney, Australia in 1990, Rode is a specialist in high-quality studio microphones. With its very first in-house, completely Australian-built model, the NT2 large-diaphragm microphone, the company created a classic which is still produced in its current and enhanced version, the NT2-A. An extensive range of studio and live microphones has also been added, regularly updated, and expanded over the years. These new additions include a variety of professional microphones which are designed for video and mobile applications and can be connected directly to SLR cameras or smartphones.
Mono or stereo
The Rode M5 MP stereo set is suited to a variety of applications. It is an excellent choice for recording drums, for example – no matter if it's used as an overhead microphone set or separately for hi-hat and ride. Alternatively, the Rode M5 MP can also be used for recording a detailed stereo signal from string and wind instruments. What’s more, there is no problem when using the M5 MP in combination with portable audio recorders, so it can be useful for natural-sounding field recordings or for dialogues – and the windshields that are included in the scope of delivery also allow outdoor use without interference.
