    Rode M5 reviews

    M5 Compact 1/2" Condenser Microphone (Matched Pair) is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 7.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Prefect for Group Audio on a Budget! I purchased these mics to take place of purchasing 10 lavalieres for a large group interview setup on a closed set. The M5s did a great job handling voice for the situation I was encountering. But of course, as any good audio pro knows, you will not get the same sound as individual lavalieres. I took the room tone and the roominess of the mics pickup pattern and just owned it. I would not recommend these in a live or open set environment, but closed set was perfect. I have also place these mics out in the audience at live shows to pick up crowd and show audio and the blew me away! So long story short, just because these mics have certain things they were made for, you can fit them into many different situations to satisfy your audio needs.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great, inexpensive Mic pair! These mics sound great with any vocal, choir, or instruments. They have a very warm sound to them and the frequency response is great. They both sound exactly alike to one another. One downside of them is the stand mounts that come with them. It is difficult to put the mic into the mount, you have to force the microphones on and twist them which I don't like to do since they are very delicate.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from So, so... For the price they're ok. But the 2 mics don't sound alike. One is more sensitive to high frequencies than the other.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very impressed I'm a magician/videographer, and I often combine both of those skillsets. So whether I am filming tutorials, performances, or anything, these microphones are gems. Great sound quality, especially for their price. They require 48V Phantom Power, which isn't even an issue. It's nothing a simple Phantom Power Supply can't fix. So glad I purchased these. Fantastic product!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth it I love these mic's. Not much hype on the high end and a nice smooth low end. They sound much better than the price would suggest. I've used them on drums, acoustic guitar, electric guitar, violin and sax. I got them to use for location recording but they found a home in the studio as well.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Product I'm very happy with my purchase. Excellent quality both in build and sound.
