Get Amazing Sound Onstage with This Condenser Mic From RODE!

The RODE M2 Handheld Condenser Microphone puts crystal-clear, studio-caliber sound reproduction in your hands! Though it gives you condenser-mic performance, the M2's supercardioid pickup pattern and internal shockmount design makes it very resistant to feedback. It's like having the best of both worlds onstage: the durability and dependability of a dynamic mic built into a high-performance condenser model! A locking on/off switch is handy for performers, and the effective windscreen protects the capsule while making the M2 very resistant to plosives.

RODE M2 Handheld Supercardioid Condenser Microphone at a Glance:
  • RODE quality
  • Designed for the stage

RODE quality
The M2 benefits from RODE's extensive experience in crafting premium condenser microphones for studio, live and location use. This new microphone builds upon the foundation set by the TEC award-winning RODE S1.

Designed for the stage
Combining sound quality equal to that of the finest studio microphones, the M2 features a tailored response to reduce feedback, as well as an integrated shock mounting system to minimise handling noise. A locking on/off switch located on the microphone's body provides the switching feature required by singers with self-operated sound systems, yet can be locked off when used in larger, dedicated operator environments.

RODE M2 Handheld Supercardioid Condenser Microphone Features:
  • Live condenser vocal microphone
  • Feedback rejecting supercardioid pickup pattern
  • Locking on/off switch
  • Heavy-duty metal body
  • High level of RF rejection
  • Low handling noise
  • Designed and manufactured in Australia
  • Zip pouch and stand mount with 3/8" thread adapter included
  • Ten-year warranty
The RODE M2 puts studio-caliber sound reproduction in a handheld mic built for the stage!

Another Great Rode Purchase

I've been looking for an upgraded vocal mic after using a Shure SM58 with good results. A few months back, I purchased a Rode NT1 Condenser Mic for home recording and was completely blown away with the quality for the money, so I looked into to Rode M2. Once again, Rode has completely impressed me with the sound and build quality of the M2. I highly recommend Rode and the M2!

The M2 is Magic

Both times now I have used this mic for live sound there has been NO feedback problems. The last time was in a space with concrete floors and brick walls. As a songwriter event, it was great that the vocals were clear even when right up on the mic. ALSO, we used it as a guitar mic for a guitar without a pickup. This is actually the most common place to get feedback, especially the low range coming right from the sound hole. No booming bass, great sound at high volume for finger picking and NO feedback. And it doubles as a studio mic. What's not to love?

Well done!

After much research, this Rode mic was bought to replace another one (different brand) of lesser quality. And because my voice is at best average, I needed a mic that produced a stronger sound. The M2 does, and it is beyond my expectation. The only small gripe I have is that the on-off switch works a bit harder than I would have liked, but I understand why it does. That said, I believe this is one of the best made supercardioid handheld condenser microphone with an on-off switch available on the market today.

bang for your buck

Brilliantly crafted condenser microphone... very clear reproduction of vocals... feel really sturdy and professional with an on off toggle switch which again feels smooth... Performance wise its fabulous for its price.... needs slight EQ'in for it to cut through..

Excellent Product

I told my Sweetwater Sales Rep that I had an EV BK-1 that I really liked, but it is starting to go. I told him I wanted something that was like the EV. He recommended the Rode M2. It is even better than the EV. It is a terrific microphone. It performs exactly like I wanted.
