A Stylish Hand-held Condenser!
The Audix VX-5 is an excellent-sounding hand-held vocal condenser mic that's well-suited for a variety of live, studio, and broadcast applications - and the fact that it looks great is an extra bonus. The VX-5 boasts a smooth frequency response of 40Hz-16kHz. Its supercardioid polar pickup pattern makes it ideal for capturing vocals, but it's equally as great for capturing acoustic instruments - as a mic for drum overheads, brass, woodwinds, guitar, and more. It handles SPL up to 140dB (with a -10 pad) without distorting. Superb off-axis rejection and resistance to plosives only add to the Audix VX-5's ever-increasing presence on pro stages.Audix VX-5 Supercardioid Condenser Microphone at a Glance:

Great on vocals and acoustic instruments
The VX-5's high SPL handling (at least 140dB without distortion) makes it a great choice on instruments other than vocals. You can use it as a top-notch drum overhead mic, or use it on brass, woodwinds, hi-hat, percussion toys, and more.
While it's true that sound is paramount in the live sound arena, looking great doesn't hurt either - and in that department the VX-5 also delivers. It features a 14mm gold vapor diaphragm, an acoustically ported steel mesh grill screen, and a long, slim body with an elegant black satin finish. Give your stage or studio a fresh look with the Audix VX-5.
