The Rode M2 builds on the success of R++de's TEC Award-winning S1 microphone, the company's first condenser aimed at performance applications.
Condenser microphones are not generally used in live applications because of their perceived fragility and susceptibility to feedback. And that's where the M2 is very different from a condenser aimed at studio use. To protect the M2 from the rough treatment it's likely to encounter on stage, the capsule is suspended within a shockmounting system built into the mic's heavy-duty metal body.
To prevent the microphone picking up signals that might cause feedback, the M2's capsule has been engineered to provide a super-cardioid pickup pattern. This means the microphone will reject sound sources in front of and to the sides of the capsule, capturing only the sound from directly in front of it.
