Great inexpensive SDC mics.

  • Summary: Great inexpensive SDC mics. As good as anything for 2 to 3 times the price. Crunchy and aggressive on overheads but not brittle. They sit really well in a mix with almost no tweaking. If you can't afford KM184's buy these.

Simply indispensable. The best in their class.

  • Summary: Cleanest SDCs you can get at this price range and are indispensable as overheads, on acoustic guitars and winded instruments. The beginner and professional audio engineer needs a pair of these. I have never found such good overhead tones with any other mic pair than I have found with these in the first five minutes of use. Get a pair.

Fabulous Mics Worth Every Penny!

  • Excerpt: I am very happy with these microphones. Use them with an upright piano facing the soundboard on the low and high side. Excellent pickup and clarity. Have also used the pair at wedding, positioned on mic stand (40in), to pick up the pastor, bride and groom. The guests clearly heard every word and the pastor was impressed with the pickup. Also makes great audience (ambient) mics for recording church services. Worth every penny.

Fantastic bang for the buck!

  • Excerpt: The NT5's are fantastic small diaphragm condensers that compete with much more expensive mics in their field. I've used these mics overheads for a drumset, miscellaneous persuasions, acoustic instruments like mandolin and guitar, and room mics. Their present high end response helps in picking up the detail and personality that you would otherwise potentially not hear without extensive EQ work.
  • Pros: Affordable, Clear Sound, Easy To Use, Lightweight
  • Cons: Limited Functions

Great Sound at an Affordable Price

15 August 2012
  • Excerpt: 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.

Excelent Pair of Mics

Brandon York Productions, B&H Photo
17 May 2012
  • Excerpt: I just used these mics to record a classical voice recital for a client's audition reel. These mics did the trick. I plugged them directly into my Zoom h4n with standard xlr cables and they were ready to go! (note: these mics use phantom power) I placed each mic 5-6 ft. away on either side of the singer with my Zoom in the center giving me a clear 4 channel stereo recording.

  • Excerpt: I have been doing sound for a few years now and I'm always looking for the next best thing and now i think i found it. I use the NT5 for field recording indoors for independent films and for live sound recording on drums and left and right of the room its great. Rode mic i love because they are so natural sounding.
