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

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

    I use an SM58, but was getting a lot of feedback when using it with a TC Electronics Mic Mechanic. The D5 (I got the switch model) helped eliminate it greatly. It is a clear mic with emphasis I. The highs and mids.

    I ended up returning the Mic Mechanic because I think it was triggering some feedback too, even though it has an anti feedback dial.

    I'll still keep the D5.

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

    I am a drummer/vocalist and although I own a Neumann K105, I found the drums bleeding through the mic too much of the time.
    The AKG has a great sound, warm in the lower frequencies, brilliant in the top and a great tight pattern that never feeds back. Highly recommend for singing instrumentalists and vocalists working in small venues where feedback could be a problem. Also, sounds great with the QSC K12 powered speakers...

    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.

    Outstanding Quality!

    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!
