Best little mics!

Total rating

I have been using two matched pairs of Rode NT5's for live recordings of classical music, orchestras, choirs, small ensembles and bands, I have the Omni capsules for them as well as the Cardioid ones, simple to set up as they have no on body controls, the mics can handle high spf's and have relatively little self noise, so they are suited both to overheads for drums or suspended above a choir. the signal response is fairly flat and can need some brightening up, but doesn't turn harsh with EQ boosts, I would compare these mics against some of the more expensive options available, in my opinion they are better than the sE1a's (a similarly priced alternative) and considering their price, they stack up well against the AKG 451b's. both sets of microphones were bought from Thomann and have been delivered quickly and without fuss in solid plastic cases with foam windshields and solid little microphone clips

Quality, Affordable Small Diaphragm Condenser Mics by Rode

Total rating

I chose these mics mainly based on their reputation for good build quality and on their price point. I had some reservations as I've heard a few users complain they sound 'harsh' - but I've found them to be very decent sounding. They do exhibit a slight high end boost - but this is nothing that can't be sorted out with good mic placement technique and/or a touch of EQ.

My first impression was that they are extremely well packaged in a hard plastic case with storage for accessories, and with an additional storage pouch for the mics - handy if you don't want to carry the large case around. The included mic clips are of excellent quality, and hold the mics extremely securely.

The NT5s are very solid, look fantastic and feel extremely well made. I've been running them through Motu preamps and am more than happy with the results. They're extremely sensitive, and as a stereo pair I've found they capture a very realistic sound field (especially in ORTF configuration) As ever, mic placement is crucial to achieve good results, but I've found the NT5s pretty versatile on a variety of sources. Used as single spot mics on drums/percussion they've given excellent results - they shine particularly well on cymbals, hi-hats, crashes etc. I've also had very decent results mic'ing acoustic guitars with them (one on the neck, one near the bridge). I've had a quite a few comments from visitors to my studio who thought I was in the room playing when it was actually playback they were hearing!

At this price point I can't really fault the NT5s, and would recommend them highly as a first pair of SDCs for anyone on a tight budget. They look and feel like a quality product, and they certainly deliver excellent results. add to this the included accessories and extensive Rode warranty, and I think you have an excellent stereo set for the money.

These mics are great. However, it would have been nice if the pack included a stereo bar attachment for a mic stand as, for me, their main use is for acoustic guitar and using 2 mic stands is a bit cumbersome. I'd recommend purchasing a stereo bar at the same time.
