Great Value, Great Mics
Jack D, 09.04.2018
As my first matched pair of mics I was really looking forward to getting my hands on them from the moment I made the purchase. I can say nothing but great things about these microphones, they are absolutely fantastic for their price and in my opinion excellently built. Whether your recording or gigging they can take a beating with their robust structure and finish. The mic clips are a little stiff but I wouldn?t class that as a bad thing as they are sure to stay secure in the clips.

So far I have used these microphones to record piano, guitar and also as drum overheads. I have also used them underneath a stage from Irish dancing as FX mics and I was really pleased with what they picked up.

Having worked with more expensive mic in the past the M5s are truly a bargain and I would highly recommend them.

Great work from Rode again!

very competitive
Steven2363, 10.12.2013
I have found these microphones to be absolutely fantastic for their price, excellent (mostly) flat frequency response gives a beautifully clear representation of whatever you're recording and in my opinion adds a slight bit of it's own warmth to the texture of the sound. so far I have used these microphones to record uilleann pipes, violin, mandolin and banjo using them as a close and far set, I am also using them to record piano, guitar and drum overheads in AB position. In my experience these microphones are boxing above their class in terms of price, competing with much more expensive microphones including the Rode Nt-5s. Could not recommend them more for a beginner producer on a budget.

Fantastic little mics for amazing value!
RemyG, 01.09.2019
I bought these two little microphones some years ago because I was looking for some multi-purpose and cheap mics to do some home recordings of a variety of acoustic instruments, like guitar, cajon, voice... And I must say I've been really happy with the quality of the sound that gets picked up by them. They are well balanced, really light and discreet, and they work well by themselves or as a pair. The only thing I would say is that due to some poor care on my part the metal receiving end of one of them got a bit damaged and bruised, but as I said it was due to my own negligence so nothing bad to say about them really! Highly recommended for beginner home recorders who don't want to spend too much money but still get a decent sound!

Alround talent
SaschaC, 16.02.2014
The Rode M5 Pair is really amazing.

Sound:

I own these microphones for over half a year now and i am quite impressed about the quality. I haven't noticed any noise or other annoying sounds combined with my Focusrite Saffire 6 USB.
I recorded vocals, acoustic guitar, acoustic bass, flute and pinao with a high resolution and natural sound.
Even in a church they cut quite a dash.

Reliability and durability:

These twins are built to last! They are finished quite tough.
Another great thing about them is, that they are so small.

There is just one little thing what is annoying. The microphone clamp is a little to tight.
It is a pain in the arse everytime you take them out of the box to fumble them in the clamp.

Finally these mics are definitely worth the price.
