OVERVIEW

A live performance vocal mic designed for singers in high-volume bands.

The D5S has the same mechanical, electrical, and acoustic characteristics as the D 5 and features a noiseless on/off switch. The D5S dynamic vocal microphone delivers a powerful sound even on the noisiest stage. A superb mic for lead and backing vocals. Its supercardioid polar pattern ensures maximum gain before feedback. The mic stands for a crisp sound that cuts through every mix.

The thickness of the microphone's diaphragm varies across its diameter. The Laminated Varimotion diaphragm deep-drawing process allows the diaphragm itself to be fine-tuned with no extra tuning resonators, leading to a quantum leap in audio performance.

The dual shock mount eliminates any kind of mechanical noise for trouble-free live use. The audience will hear nothing but the pristine sound of your voice!

FEATURES
  • Frequency response optimized for vocal use
  • Integrated wind and pop screen for effective suppression of pop and breath noise
  • Frequency independent supercardioid polar pattern for high gain before feedback
  • Patented AKG Laminated Varimotion diaphragm
  • Shock mounted transducer element reduces handling and cable noise
  • Extremely resilient, spring-steel wire-mesh cap for extra impact resistance
  • Noiseless on/off switch

Be heard over the roar of your band with AKG sound quality to boot.

        Comments about AKG D5 S Supercardioid Dynamic Vocal Microphone with On/Off Switch:

        It sounds very much like an SM 58 microphone with one major exception. It will cost you about half the price to get a windscreen for it. You probably won't find one at your local music store and have to special order it. I don't like that fact AT ALL!!! So, if you want this microphone with a windscreen add an extra half to the price.

        Comments about AKG D5 S Supercardioid Dynamic Vocal Microphone with On/Off Switch:

        This puppy compares to a Shure Beta 58. I plugged them both in and all I had to do was turn the bass down a quarter turn in my mixer. They both had the exact same sound. I had more range with the D5 on higher volumes than the Beta58. Love it!
