The Audix OM5 is a dynamic vocal mic that aims to change the level of expectation performers and engineers expect from a stage-rugged vocal mic. The Audix OM5 microphone features a feedback-fighting, bleed-rejecting hypercardioid pattern, handles 144dB SPL without breaking up, and rolls off below 120Hz for a great, natural sound, devoid of handling noise and low-end plosives.
Here's what Audix say about the OM5 Dynamic Mic
Vocals, lead & backing - tight pattern control and tailored response enables vocals to cut through the mix.
The OM5 is made with an extremely tight and uniformly controlled hypercardioid polar pattern which isolates the vocals from the rest of the instruments on stage or in a studio.
Used on stage, in studios and for broadcast applications, the OM5 has a reputation for clarity, resistance to feedback and ability to handle SPLs in excess of 144 dB without distortion.
The OM5 is naturally attenuated at 120 Hz to reduce boominess and handling noise. The mid-range is tailored to provide extra presence in the vocals allowing the vocalist to be easily heard through the main speakers as well as the monitors.
