good stereo pair could use a pad and a low-cut
guyrab, 29.08.2017
very sturdy build quality with 10 year guarantee. I do like the sound it's almost perfect. it would have been perfect had it had a pad option (because you really need it sometimes i.e. piano recording I need to record from quite close to the hammers and then the volume is overwhelming), and also a low-cut - as these pics do a nice jobs with lower frequency but actually it's better to leave the lower frequency to large dia. micrpophones and to let it roll off

really good, but there's better
Zambo, 22.01.2019
if you really need a matched pair of mics and you register music at an amateur level, that's just the right choice. If you're a professionist, my advice are the nt5.
BUT, if you don't necessarly need a match pair, GO FOR THE RODE NT1-A. That's the best in this price range.

Excellent product, great VFM
Steve9124, 18.10.2017
Bought these to record acoustic guitars with. Fabulous value for money and excellent clear recordings. The only thing I've knocked a point off for is that one of the end caps on one of the mic's has fallen off. Apart from that, to be able to get a matched pair at this price point to get the quality of recording that you do - its a steal.

Good small pencil mic
Stimpson, 29.03.2018
Rode house is sound has been a bit too bright /harsh to my ears, but not with the M5. Quite smooth and versatile small diaphragm mic. Not the best performer in the resolution but at this price smokes many more expensive mics.

Works well as OH and acoustic guitar mic and I have been using one in parallel with more conventional SM57 and e609 in front of a guitar cab. Have recorded even one vocal track with M5.

Really nice allrounder for the price, and good overall quality mic when paired with decent pre.

Rode M5
joeboy, 31.01.2015
When used with a good Pre Amp they are very good (live),for studio the Rode NT5 is a warmer sounding mic but a little more expensive,so the Rode M5 is a great mic for it price.

Nice pair of mics
Ike, 30.10.2014
I've used the M5s for drum overheads to capture my cymbal sounds, and for "budget" mics they work great; I think the high end sounds much better than with the Rode M3s I used previously. The size of the M5s is quite compact so they're easy to set up in coincident configuration. The build quality also seems excellent.

Good value SCD mikes
Adrian866, 04.06.2017
I'm using these for drum overhead mics. They are small, very nicely made and supplied in quality packaging.

Soundwise - perfectly acceptable for my uses - and for the price, the sound is excellent.

Supplied with Rode mic clips, which are also good quality. My only gripe is that it is a very tight fit to clip the mics into these clips, but at least you know that they won't fall out - very important when used as overheads!

Overall, very happy with the price:quality of these mics.

I Just ordered my second pair...
Hilvert H., 28.02.2016
Brilliant microphones, the concept of these little tiny pencils is genius and they are seriously top quality. So far I have tested them at home / studio only.
I just ordered my second pair, with the stereo bars, in preparation for a Big test in June with Harmonica players. What I particularly like about these microphones is that the stand holders are Very tight, not easy to take them on and off the stand, and the mics are difficult, if not impossible to cup in your hands.
For my venue with harmonica players, known as "notorious cuppers", that is a very welcome Big Bonus,
I Love these mics.
