Designed and made in Australia, the M5 is a compact cardioid condenser microphone with low noise and a full frequency response. A result of many years experience building the award-winning NT5 microphone, RDE 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 RDEs proprietary ceramic coating which offers a sleek matt black finish, and is supplied with WS5 windshields and RM5 stand mounts.

Awesome mics come well packaged and sound good.The only two problems i have is one. The mic clips are very tight almost two tight and you have to force one side in to clamp it. Instead of the (i love rode sticker) it would have been more helpful to show a visual diagram of how to do this since you don't always figure it out until later, even though the manual does mention it sort of how to do it.Or a you tube video lol. # two problem is this is my second rode set of mics purchase and there's a small dent and scratch with paint missing on one of them on the front grill small but still the quality control is lacking. My other mic was a Ntk from 2011 and i had some kinda yellow glue ball bouncing in and out of the diaphragm that i had to take apart myself and take out. Great mics but I'm the buyer rode, stop saying pass it and sending it out to the costumer.This mite be my last rode purchase after these two incidents.

really didn't expect a whole lot out of these given the cost, but was very pleasantly surprised. definitely recommend them if you don't wanna shell out the extra 400 (i didn't) for their bigger brothers the NT5's.

Bought this pair today to record guitar with an NT2A for vocals, running through a Mackie mixer, a UAC-2 USB audio interface into Cubase LE on Windows 10, 64 bit. While the NT2A sounds fine and captures beautiful, rich tone, the M5 emits a crackling, whining, hissing, popping static noise from both mics. I've tried changing ports, going direct into the audio interface, swapping cables out, making sure no cables are crossing one another. Nothing reduces the background noise. Everything about these mics except the price is awful. Not worth even trying to record with these things. I will return them as soon as possible.

I purchased these for my church and they have been great. We use them to mic the piano and for choirs. Great sound and we only paid $229. The price has gone up but still a good value. Not many features but that's what a mixer is for.

Great mics for the price. Live up to the quality of Rode mics. Definitely a bit more high end but still very usable. Fantastic for Drum Overheads.
