RODE NT5 Compact 1/2" Cardioid Condenser Microphone

The NT5 is a premium small-diaphragm condenser microphone designed for critical recording applications. Featuring a 1/2-inch gold-sputtered cardioid condenser capsule, it delivers a smooth, balanced sound with very low self-noise. Its exceptionally accurate cardioid polar pattern and wide frequency response make the NT5 ideal for recording everything from acoustic instruments to drum overheads and cymbals to live performances and dialogue on-location.

Expanding the NT5's versatility, an interchangeable omnidirectional capsule (NT45-O) is also available separately. 

The NT5 is also available as a certified match pair for stereo recording.
