Acoustic port design – a revolution in shotgun microphones

Building on the success of the other NTG microphones, the RØDE NTG5 features a brand-new body design. The new and improved construction employs circular acoustic ports, replacing the linear slots found in conventional shotgun mics. This groundbreaking design is the product of months of intensive acoustic testing, incorporating design aspects from Rode’s TF5 condenser microphone.

The TF5 features a unique perforated acoustic vent, which led Rode to incorporate this feature onto the RØDE NTG5 microphone. The resulting sound is natural and uncoloured, providing stunning sonic clarity unmatched by other shotgun mics. The exceptional transparency and annular line tube technology ensures that the RØDE NTG5 will be the future industry-standard for shotgun mics.

Crystal-clear, broadcast-grade sound

The RØDE NTG5 provides a tailored frequency response, custom-made to be optimised for recording in the field. The controlled frequency range and ultra low self-noise make the NTG5 perfect for a wide range of applications. From locating recording to audio/visual work, the RØDE NTG5 delivers superlative audio that is sure to impress.

The onboard RF-bias technology and conformal coating ensure the NTG5 will perform at its best even in demanding weather conditions. The ultra-durable design is highly resistant to wet conditions, humidity, severe cold and even dust. From the rainforest to the deserts, the RØDE NTG5 will capture the perfect take every time. The result is stunning audio, that captures every subtle detail, no matter where you are.

Compact and lightweight design

The compact and ultra-lightweight aluminium body makes it one of the most versatile and useable shotgun mics available. Boom operators will no longer suffer fatigue from long, demanding shoots. The portable and lightweight rig will deliver broadcast-grade audio in a body that will feel like a dream in your hand.

Complete with recording kit including pistol grip

Get started straight out of the box. The RØDE NTG5 comes complete with a location recording pack to accompany the microphone. Included within the pack is a lightweight PG2-R pistol grip, perfect for point and shoot recording. The new ergonomic design of the lightweight handle ensures improved functionality and comfort. The cushioned grip features multiple cable mounting points with additional space for the PG2-R Pro Cable XLR Connector for added convenience. Also included within the recording kit is a windfur, windshield, the PG2-R pro cable and a microphone clip.
