    Type cigar

    Transducer: Condenser

    Directivity: Cardio

    OVERALL OPINION

    Several years ...

    YES bcp small condos in my studies, at work, ...
    (KM 184, C451, etc ...)

    The ratio Q / price is excellent
    and I think that that's the strength I like most ...

    Well ok it sounds a KM not the same even if we feel that Rode was "a little inspiration for the look ... the price is not the same either ...

    In short we could say that the NT5 is the affordable alternative KM184 ... ...

    I use them mainly for overhead drums, I could try them also on the voice, taking on outside, and guitars.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I made a comparison accurate (overheads, even offering, same room, without touching the settings of the slice, etc..) with two standard references: AKG C451 and Neumann KM184. nivo wholesale prices ac double each time (neumann = 2 times the price akg = 4 times that of Rode). frankly, the NT5 is doing more than well: the C451 is a bit brighter, but with a little eq mm was the thing with the Rode. when the neumann, they are a bit more neutral, but frankly the difference is not obvious finesse. So basically they provide, I have not found better than the NT5......

So basically they provide, I have not found better than the NT5 in the same price, if one takes into account the product in its entirety: robustness, quality, versatility, etc.. perfect as a pair of static home studio when trying anyway sthg seriously.
    WARNING: not recommended outdoors, there are really too sensitive to the breath / wind. ditto for a vote even with a antipop c limit, better a large diaphragm in mm price.

    The Rode NT5 is a nice pencil mic or small diaphragm condenser by Rode that packs a great bang for buck. These mics sound crystal clear! There is something very transparent about these mics that makes your recording sound like you're standing next to it, but there's a bit of an added sheen on the top end. Once in a while the added sheen that you get with these mics does seem to be a bit much and you'll want to tamp down the high frequencies with EQ. But overall these mics sound very good and very nicely priced. You can get them in a matched stereo pair, which comes in a nice package complete with mounts and windscreens in a protective case. When you get the capsules separated,......

But overall these mics sound very good and very nicely priced. You can get them in a matched stereo pair, which comes in a nice package complete with mounts and windscreens in a protective case. When you get the capsules separated, unlike the NT4, you have lot more flexibility in terms of your stereo arrangement. I really would recommend getting the discrete pair of NT5's over the NT4, simply because using a stereo spaced pair often just sounds better than an XY setup. These don't have the weird cable that the NT4 needs because they're discrete. They connect with the standard XLR cable, and they do need phantom power to work.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I don't own these, but I have used them many times at studios that I've freelanced at. They are a fairly common mic, and are used a lot for drum overheads and for miking up orchestral sections in stereo. They have a very clean and clinical sound, which may or may not be what you're looking for. They are very sensitive and handle transients very well, but they don't sound as smooth as say a Neumann KM184. These cost way less though, and they definitely are quality mics. Rode is known for their great value, and it shows with these NT5's.

    The Rode NT5s are a pair of small-diaphragm condenser microphones that I have used extensively in the studio, mostly on drums and acoustic guitars.

    OVERALL OPINION

    These mics are great as a stereo pair. While these aren't the Neumann KM184s, these little things are still great for drum overheads and acoustic instruments when you want that certain high end twang. I also have a pair of AKG C1000s and in my opinion these are a better bang for your buck. If I'm not mistaken, these have gone up a bit in price since I purchased them, which tells me that they are becoming more and more popular for a set of stereo small-diaphragm mics in project studios that maybe wouldn't be able to afford......

Compared to the KM184s, the price is outstanding and is a great bang for your buck. I believe I will hold on to these until I can afford a pair of KM184s.
