The RØDE's M5 is a tiny 1/2" cardioid condenser microphone with minimal noise and a wide frequency response. The M5 is equally at home on acoustic instruments, choirs, or wherever else you'd use a tiny diaphragm condenser microphone, either singly or in a stereo array, ideal for studio recording and live on stage. The matched pair was carefully chosen to provide a sensitivity difference of no more than 1 dB between the microphones. Rode's ceramic coating gives the M5 a sleek matte-black look. Windshields from the WS5 series and stand mounts from the RM5 series are included.
