Audix OM5

Great mic! Outstanding Customer Service!
5/5

My favorite mic!

Love it! I also have a Telefunken mic that rocks the house, but this Audix OM5 has a tighter cardioid pattern which helps me sing bass notes and the Johnny Cash type songs right on pitch, and it also helps with feedback issues, which I have none with this mic on the tiny lounge stage where I use it. Beware, no gang vocals allowed as it doesn't pick up on the sides of the mic so you have to sing dead into it, but for me it's the perfect mic for what I do. And check out that awesome price too! :) You can buy 58's all day for $100, but take the plunge and pay a little bit extra for an extra cool mic! Hi Joseph Secu!

Great Microphone for male vocals

Our vocalist has a deep baritone voice and we had a lot of troubles getting his voice to cut through the mix. This mic did the trick. We can now hear his vocals and were not pushing the gain so hard that we're always at the verge of feedback. I'll be ordering more of these guys.

Great audio microphone!

This microphone performs like a pro. Allowed us to achieve so much more gain, due to the vocal pickup range. Have used Seinnheiser, Peavey, Audio-technica, Shure and some others, but these are now our go to mikes on stage.

Sweetwater Advice

Nick Church

I've owned a number of these mics for several years and have never been less than completely satisfied with their performance in a variety of applications. One of my bands, an all-acoustic three piece with vocalists of widely differing power and projection, would have had major sound problems without the presence, clarity and feedback resistance of an OM5.

Dan VanAmerongen

I use this mic live and it has a full, present sound without being muddy in the midrange. It is one of the best mics in this price range for my voice.
