I own a pair of these personally and found myself using my matched pair for the theatre at work. The pickup EQ is quite flat and picks up an orchestra quite nicely. They are great for acoustic guitar or drum overheads as well.
I'm a magician/videographer, and I often combine both of those skillsets. So whether I am filming tutorials, performances, or anything, these microphones are gems. Great sound quality, especially for their price. They require 48V Phantom Power, which isn't even an issue.
I love these mic's. Not much hype on the high end and a nice smooth low end. They sound much better than the price would suggest. I've used them on drums, acoustic guitar, electric guitar, violin and sax. I got them to use for location recording but they found a home in the studio as well.
I purchased these mics to take place of purchasing 10 lavalieres for a large group interview setup on a closed set. The M5s did a great job handling voice for the situation I was encountering. But of course, as any good audio pro knows, you will not get the same sound as individual lavalieres.
These mics sound great with any vocal, choir, or instruments. They have a very warm sound to them and the frequency response is great. They both sound exactly alike to one another. One downside of them is the stand mounts that come with them.
I'm very happy with my purchase. Excellent quality both in build and sound.
Recording Appalachian dulcimer & Irish Whistle. Great results.
For the price they're ok. But the 2 mics don't sound alike. One is more sensitive to high frequencies than the other.
