    Rode NT5 Reviews

    NT5 Cardioid Studio Condenser Microphones (Single Microphone) is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 5.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Sound at an Affordable Price I primarily use this mic on acoustic guitars, but it also works great on the bottom snare or as an overhead for drums. This microphone has such a vibrant, yet clean sound that has had a huge impact on my recording quality. I have also used the Rode NT1-A and have had great success with both. I highly recommend Rode microphones for recording artists who want a big sound, but are on a budget.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Mic I used this mic to record dialogue inside a small room. Got good sound from it.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good mic value I already had one, this is the second one, great for recording acoustic guitar, or other acoustic instruments. This is not an issue to be concerned about but the microphone holder is very tight (same as my last one), you have to push quite hard to clip it in, However it doesn't seem to hurt it any.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Crisp, Clean and just plain fantastic. Ive fallen in love with Rode Mics from their Podcasters, wireless units and now this mic.  I use it for every video production I can because it gives me great presence.  When my videos get shown on a TV or computer, theres no frustration with muddy audio or audio I have to over produce.  Its clean and beautiful right out of the box.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Decent Mic for the money - No complaints While spending a lot more money will likely yield a much better quality mic, for the money, I think this mic is a good value.
