    Comments about Audix OM-5 Dynamic Microphone:

    I was looking for an alternative to the Shure SM58A Beta that I've been using for years and years and the Audix OM-5 was recommended to me by a professional sound guy. He absolutely did not steer me wrong. Nice mic. Took me a couple performances to get it set right through the mixer (I mix myself on the fly) but it's a very nice, crisp mic for both spoken word and song performance.

        Comments about Audix OM-5 Dynamic Microphone:

        This mic is not for everyone. This is for singers who care about performing music more than as a hobby and know how to stay on the mic. For recording, I would choose this mic over any condensor under $1k. But to each their own.

        Comments about Audix OM-5 Dynamic Microphone:

        Great mic, love it. Better than the shures for my voice, since I don't need as much bass proximity boost. LOTS OF HANDLING NOISE, but i play guitar or bass or keys so I leave it set up and don't touch it. I am also pretty good at playing the mic. My last one broke (it was old, don't know what happened) and I had to use my shure in the mean time. Way more feedback, less clear and cutting sound, needed MORE GAIN on MIC! Isn't that supposed to be the other way around? Glad to be back to my audix.

        Great Microphone

        By 

        from Baja California, Mexico

        Comments about Audix OM-5 Dynamic Microphone:

        I would not hesitate recommending this to anyone looking for a great performing mic. I must admit I was so impressed I went and purchased an OM-7 and absolutely love it too......but its more expensive. I have very limited experience, but what I have tells me the OM-5 is a solid choice for the money.
        I am new to amplified performances and asked several sound guys who I knew what I should buy. It was suggested that I look at Audix and that if I had the money start at the OM-5. I did and love the richness of the sound. Not being very knowledgeable so all I can say is that I am very pleased with the results and perform weekly singing a range of styles from Blues to Ballads. Very pleased.
        So far I have no complaints. The mic feels substantial without feeling heavy. No problems with feedback at all. Cable snaps in with a good solid feel.
        I'm always a bit frugal with my money but took a chance and feel good about the decision.

        Great vocal mic for live events

        By 

        from Dallas

        Comments about Audix OM-5 Dynamic Microphone:

        Throughout my 30+ years singing live music, I have used many brands of microphones: Shure SM58 & SM58 Beta, Beyerdynamic TGX58, Sennheisers, and many other brands like Nady, Peavey, and AKG. But, my favorite mic is the Audix OM5 mic. When I asked the guy at my local music store what was the best vocal mic for live music, he said the Audix OM5 which surprised me. I purchased the mic and have loved it ever since. It seems to have a beefier sound for my voice. This mic costs a little more than I wanted to pay, but it is worth it.

        GREAT MIC

        Comments about Audix OM-5 Dynamic Microphone:

        I'll keep it short and to the point, this mic is very good at letting you turn up the volume of the mixer and not getting FEEDBACK. I own three of these and I wouldn't trade them for anything.My old vocal mics were akg's very good mics just not as good as these. At practice in my basement we use two of the OM 5 mics and we use two pv115's as monitors thru a behringer ep4000 and not a squeal is heard. Your choise I don't think you will be sorry if you buy these

        Great Mic for lead singers!

        By 

        from Braford, AR.

        Comments about Audix OM-5 Dynamic Microphone:

        I use one of these for the lead singer and three OM-2's for the back-ups and I couldn't be happier: the OM-5 really cuts through the others and gives a perfect mix every time with minimal Equalizing needed. I prefer the OM-2s to the shure SM-58 and have found them to be most reliable. Buy an Audix and you won't be disappointed!

        It's Okay...

        Comments about Audix OM-5 Dynamic Microphone:

        I don't like the way this mic is treble-biased. It makes my deep voice sound to high and doesn't give any fatness or sound color. The lows are virtually non-existant. It sounds too plain for this deeper voiced singer. It would be good for women or a male with a midrange or higher voice.
