Audix VX5 overview

  • 1Description

The Audix VX5 is a rugged handheld dynamic microphone with a supercardioid polar pattern. The VX5 is intended for capturing vocal performances in live sound and recording applications. The supercardioid polar pattern is most effective in rejecting off-axis noise and feedback. The VX5 features a -10dB pad for providing added headroom and minimizing peak distortion. A bass roll-off filter switch minimizes low frequency noise. The VX5 is an excellent choice for singers, musicians and any one in need of a high quality performance microphone.

Supercardioid polar pattern rejects ambient noise and distortion.
-10dB Pad switch provides added headroom and eliminates peak distortion.
A bass roll off switch minimizes low frequency noise and hum.

    Audix VX5 reviews

    VX5 - Handheld Microphone is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 4.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Professional sounding mic I was tired of listening to myself singing with the Audio Technica AtT2010 for 2 years, proximity effect was awful on that mic. With the Audix vx5 everything is better, no more proximity effect!!! Voice is warm, clarity is high, I love it. Thanks to B&H also, I got the price match and received the microphone in 3 days, I live in California, what a great company to deal with.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Vocal Mic with a Studio sound Great Vocal mic, studio sound in live situation. Rarely have to do much EQing with this mic, very transparent.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Studio Vocals, ...On The Road ! This mic is tailor-made for those of us who would like to tour with an AKG C12, Neumann TLM170 or Rode NT1-A, but (like nearly all of us) lack the funds for both the mics themselves and/or the feedback-preventing monitoring they'd require onstage, ...not to mention the impracticality of shielding such studio thoroughbreds from road-induced damage, along with the ugliness of their sheer bulk in front of a vocalist's face.The detailed, ribbon-like, golden age of radio naturalness of vocal bass from an Audix VX5 really is as good as that. Honestly. Truly. No exaggeration. If that weren't enough, its dual-layered wind-basket and rear porting allow pop-free working of proximity effect, although a foamy will be needed outdoors to allow roll-off free operation without wind rumbling into those rear ports.Then there's the shock of hearing one of these for the first time after fading down, removing anybody else's standard vocal mic and fading up an Audix VX5.First off, you'll need more input gain as (even with its trombone or sax attenuator switched out) it's quieter by about 10 dB or so. Then, ...look out !It's as though your vocals just leapt into the listeners' brains, by-passing all transducers and amplification. Open-mouthed FOH and monitor mixers shake their heads in disbelief. Band members now hear the vocal foldback as though the other mic had been receiving its sound from beneath a pile of laundry. Tech-heads will be wondering what multi-band magic processor has just been switched in......and...heaps more crystal-clear gain is available before the onset of feedback.Best of all, the VX5 costs about the same as any other vocal mic that approaches its level of roadworthy ruggedness. It appears indestructible with tamper-proof switches that seem built for eternity, the only clue to both its cheapness and its method of achieving total freedom from overload being slight residual self-noise.In over forty years of professional audio (mostly live and on location) I've found very few mics that also approach the Audix VX5's detailed and eminently workable response, regardless of price.To my mind, that makes it a genuine bargain.Be warned, ...lethal force will be required to deprive me of mine.
