Not all microphone are created equal, and there can be subtle variations between identical models. This isn’t ideal when creating stereo recordings, as these variations can result in an inconsistent sound from one ear to the other. A matched pair of microphones means you have two mics as close to the same frequency response as possible. This means when using the mics for a stereo recording, you are more like to get a consistent sound across the left and right channels.

The NT5 is RØDE's premier small-diaphragm cardioid condenser microphone, sometimes referred to as a 'pencil mic'. Intended for recording acoustic instruments, drum overheads, cymbals and live performances, these compact externally polarized mics employ a 1/2" capsule, an active J-FET impedance converter with bipolar output buffer. Their tight cardioid pickup pattern also makes it ideal for use as an indoor dialogue microphone for filmmaking on a mic stand or boom.
