The design of the Audix OM5 was in response to the market's demand for a super high-output mic with natural, undistorted sound. Unlike other brands using magnets, the OM5 does not sacrifice sonic quality or feedback rejection to achieve its high levels of gain.

Dynamic hypercardioid features high output with gentle presence rise and smooth proximity response. VLM equipped offers unmatched noise & feedback rejection. Exceptional 48Hz - 19kHz frequency response, 144db SPL handling, durable zinc alloy construction, electronically cut blast filter with black E-coat finish. Comes with carry pouch and nylon mic clip.

      Comments about Audix OM5 - Hypercardioid Dynamic Mic:

      I have a bunch of OM5s which I use generally on all sorts of bands when I work as an in-house live sound engineer. On a bitey sound system they're a more pleasant vocal mic than other ubiquitous vocal mics you see around a lot.

      I find the OM5 has less mud, a slightly rounder mid, and doesn't suffer from the high mid narkiness of other common vocal mics. There's a very usable top end brightness which really brings the vocals to the front without being sibilant or harsh. The tighter pickup pattern also helps cut out spill from loud guitars and drums, which means the mix sounds clearer and tighter.

      Another bonus is that you can get a much louder vocal level in your monitors before feedback rears its ugly head... Useful for weak singers.

      The matte black finish looks very subtle and cool, and a little dangerous, and doesn't steal attention away from the singers.

      The biggest problem I have with this mic is the pickup pattern is too tight for singers who move around a lot in front of it. If your vocalist plays guitar and spends a lot of time turning her head to watch her fret hand, you'll frequently lose level as she goes off-mic. This is the flip-side of having a good tight pickup pattern.
