RODE Microphones Introduces M5 Compact Condenser Microphone

RØDE Microphones in Silverwater, Australia, announces the release of its new M5 compact, “pencil” style permanently polarized condenser microphone ($TBA) for studio recording and live performance. Inspired by the company’s flagship small diaphragm NT5 microphone, the M5 features a ½-inch cardioid electret condenser capsule and is available in acoustically matched pairs.

The M5 promises low noise and a full frequency response. The M5 is designed for use on a range of acoustic instruments, choirs, or any situation that calls for using a small diaphragm condenser microphone, either individually or as a stereo array.

RØDE states that 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 matte black finish, and is supplied with WS5 windshields and RM5 stand mounts.
